Is it possible to setup a Product or Product Category that has different units for Purchase and Sale?
If I buy 200 Oranges, 100 Apples and 100 Bananas, to make 100 baskets with several fruits, I have to pay the fruit in Kg, but in the Sell (to use in basket assembly or manufacturing) field I have 2 + 1 + 1 Unit(s).
Am I looking at this the right way?
I've tried to create the Product Apple, with "Can be Purchased" On, UoM Unit(s), and Purchase UoM kg.
When saving I get the following ValidateError: Field(s) `uom_id` failed against a constraint: Error: The default Unit of Measure and the purchase Unit of Measure must be in the same category.
Checking the UoM's categories, I see that Unit(s) is Unit, and for kg is Weight.
The Inventory is supposed to be in Unit(s) also. What should be the best way to configure this kind of products?
