I have an Item which has a default UOM of “MR” (metre). This is the UOM in which the item is consumed. (a length of wire)
The Purchase UOM (Default Purchase Unit of Measure) is set to “EA” as this is the unit in which it is purchased. (A reel of wire).
I cannot change the UOM on the Request for Quotation from “MR” to “EA”. Is this a bug, or have I misunderstood the functionality here?
Are you making the RFQ from a Material Request? What’s the UOM in the Material Request? It’s a reasonable request to expect the RFQ to use the Purchase UOM you have set, so unless you have done something wrong, maybe it’s a bug or an enhancement that is necessary.
This is a direct Request for Quotation, no Material Request associated.
I see your pain now. Looks like the way ERPNext is designed right now, if you want the Purchase UOM in the RFQ, you have to make a Purchase Request and that works as you’d expect it to work.
Hope this helps.
I’ll raise this with the support team to see if there can be an enhancement so the UOM can be changed in the RFQ.
