Changing an article's unit for subdivision - intermediary thoughts (with relationship diagrams)


I’m rethinking the subdivision approach, and I’d like to give you the

the supplier provides (e.g. foodcoop distributes per liter, supplier
provides juice per 10 packs of 15ltr). Currently this can be done by
adapting the unit, then on next sharedlists sync the price and
unit_quantity is updated.
