Question: I am using Advanced Multi UOM module, what is the difference of Auto UOM Conversion in Item Maintenance and Automatic UOM Conversion in Options setting?

Auto UOM Conversion

At Stock > Stock Item Maintenance, for any item with multi UOM, when the checkbox of Auto UOM Conversion is checked, this means:

... during sales transaction, when the quantity sold (let’s say UOM is PCS) for an item that has insufficient stock (in that UOM), the system will prompt a message saying there is insufficient quantity for that UOM (PCS), and will suggest to convert from other available UOM.

For example:

Create a New Invoice,

Select an item, and key in quantity that is greater than its available stock for a specific UOM,

Message will be prompted offering you to do UOM Conversion:

Note: the system will automatically suggest to convert from nearest UOM. You may amend it or/and click on Save.

Set Automatic UOM Conversion

Go to Tools > Options > Stock > General Stock Setting

Check the checkbox of Automatic UOM Conversion

This setting will automatically perform UOM conversion (when needed) without prompting message screen for confirmation.
