Re: Purchasing "packaging-like" products

Hi Tom,

thank you for tip. That's probably the way to go even it requires some tweaking of the product name / purchase description / price. What I mean is if we have the original product like "Flora Margarine 8x1kg" for 40EUR and we create UoM of 8-pack, the product internally should have name of "Flora Margarine 1kg", purchase description of "Flora Margarine 8x1kg" and cost of 5EUR. However that is doable even with hundreds of products - regular expressions in Libre Office can do magic to help.

Few things then remain when purchasing like:
1) On purchase order use only purchase description so it seems like the original product. There used to be purchase_order_line_description, but latest version is stuck at 12.0 Will port to 17.0
2) Only allow the purchase_uom_id of that 8-pack to be selected on purchase order as no other UoM is really available. Something like Aymerick suggested but not aware of something dealing with this
3) Maybe hiding the name of the UoM from purchase order as it would confuse the supplier

Best regards
