Quantity Units

Your business may require to use custom units or quantity-unit conversions for subscription items and invoice line items.

JustOn supports creating custom units and, if required, corresponding conversion factors, using the custom setting Quantity Units. These units can then be applied to subscription items or invoice line items. The individual custom setting records are available as values in the corresponding Unit picklist.

Each Quantity Units setting specifies the following information:

Factor The (optional) factor to be applied to the quantity in order to determine the correct price for the invoice line item:
CalculatedQuantity = Quantity / Factor
