Unit of measure conversions are set up per Variant in a product. When adding a purchase line or sales line, an error is shown saying "Product variant unit conversions are not supported for this process". This should be possible.

Status Details

Thank you for your feedback. Currently this is not in our roadmap; however, we are tracking it and if we get more feedback and votes, we may consider it in the future.

  • This is needed. Our specific use case - is we have a unit of measure that is associated with a product dimension. We need the flexibility of having an order unit of measure and a pricing unit of measure on a Sales or PO line. The order unit drives the quantity to ship or receive.
  • I agree completely this is badly needed. There needs to be functionality to set unit conversions by variant without using WMS
  • This has to be accomplished by Microsoft avoiding overlayering by the Partner
  • From a technical point of view, it would be enough introducing two delegate defintions, one for checking that the configuration key is enabled for this kind of unit of measure conversions; and one for finding the product by its actual inventdim.
  • This is badly needed. Most distribution companies use case packs and need full support for variant conversion not just in warehousing.
