The description of Pack Stock Items can be customised with different Prefix, Suffix options and can include the Pack Quantity

  2. Default Pack Description Suffix
    1. For example, if set to "by the pallet", Pack Items will have a description of "Pencil by the pallet"
  3. Append Pack quantity to end of description
    1. Adds Pack Of Quantity to end of description. For example, description of "Box of Pencil" becomes "Box of Pencil (Pack of 10)"
  4. Use Main Item Description
    1. Uses the Unit Item Description as a base before adding the Prefix, Suffix and Pack Quantity above. eg Unit Item "Pencil", Pack item becomes "Box of Pencil"
    2. If unticked, Prefix and Suffix are added to current Pack Item description. eg "Box of Pack of Pencil"
After making changes, click Save. Changes will apply to new Pack Items going forward. To Apply to existing Pack Items, click Apply to all items.
