Customer Item Data: UOM and Conv. factor

Customer Item Data: UOM and Conv. factor
How does the customer item data work (if it works ;-))

For suppliers, everything works as expected, we got our UOM factors behave the way we want, we can order by the case and it translates in each when we receive.

But for customers, I don't understand. I set up a UOM being the case and the conversion factor being 12 for an item, but nowhere on my orders/packing slips I see that entering 48 each of this item converts to my customer to 4 cases. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you!

RE: Customer Item Data: UOM and Conv. factor
It appears the only place custitem.customersuom is used is in CustItem.php so this could be an incomplete feature.

More here:

However... custitem.fields is also used in other places so again perhaps this sis unfinished work.

Looking into it a bit more right now... I see custitem.cust_part and custitem.cust_description are used in SelectOrderOtems.php. If I had to guess I would say these last two fields were added and never fully implemented...

I think Paul is right, the person who wrote this script probably had plans to take it further but for whatever reason didn't which is a shame.

In SelectOrderItems.php you can filter out all items except those that have customer information stored for them.
