You can only edit and delete the configured UoM in Deskera Books.

Edit the UoM

To edit and delete UoM, click on the contextual menu of the UoM:

  • Edit: You can update the UoM's name and the description. Changing this will also update the product's UoM tagged to this measurement in the Product Module.
