Various doubts about products (documentation)


#1

Can someone explain to me what role these two sections have over the products?

1 - Product units: This is within the products menu.
2 - Add item: Appears when you create a quote or invoice, below each line.

Thank you.


#2

Items are just blank lines in an invoice. You can fill it with details that are not available as a product. For example one-time items or additional descriptions. You can use them but you don’t have to if you only sell pre-defined products.

Product units are the units displayed besides the amount and identify what the product amount is.
Examples: units, kg, 10-Pack, hours, GB,…
This makes sense if you sell special products like 10GB of storage on a server or 500kg of metal. In both cases it makes more sense to use “GB” or “kg” as a unit instead of just saying “500units”.


#3

Understood, thanks for the explanation. But when I give “Add article”, within the budget or invoice, nothing happens, nothing comes out. I see that it makes an ajax call, but it does not return anything.


#4

Could you enable the debug mode and post the response of the ajax call please?

SOLUTION!

In the file: modules/products/Ajax.php

Add this variable on line 48:
‘default_item_tax_rate’ => $ default_item_tax_rate

Being that way:
$data = array (
‘products’ => $products,
‘families’ => $families,
‘filter_product’ => $filter_product,
‘filter_family’ => $filter_family,
‘default_item_tax_rate’ => $default_item_tax_rate
);
