4 Information about the measurement units

7.3.1 Add a new unit of measurement

With this function it is possible to enter all the units of measurement that are required for the store. If not all the units used are set up during the initial setup, this is not a problem, since RETAIL7 allows new units to be created in the Management Console at any time. Then, for the individual items, the respective unit can be assigned. More information on this can be found under Menu → Master data → Items → Item list or in the Item list section.

  1. Open the menu → System settings → Units of measurement

  2. Click Add.

  3. Enter a code.

    For example, this code can be = kg for kilograms. Be careful to use the common abbreviations to avoid confusion.

  4. Enter a name.

    The description corresponds to the name. For example, if the code is kg, the name is kilogram. Make sure to use the correct spelling or the generally valid name here as well.

  5. Click on Save.
