I need to:
Change the unit of measure name and abbreviation
Important: If this unit of measure is assigned to other items, changing the unit's name or abbreviation will also affect those other items.
To do this task
Enter a new name.
Enter a new abbreviation.
If you're changing a time-based unit of measure for a service item that you use with QuickBooks time tracking, be aware that assigning any unit besides hour will cause rate calculations to be inaccurate when tracking time for this item. In weekly timesheets and timed single activities, time is always tracked in hours.
Hide the unit of measure by making it inactive
Making this unit of measure inactive hides it in the list of units that can be assigned to an item. However, the inactive unit will continue to be used for the current item and any other items currently assigned this unit of measure. Making this unit inactive also does not affect saved transactions in any way.
Click the Unit of measure is inactive checkbox.
Show the unit of measure again by making it active
Making this unit of measure active will cause it to show again on the list of units that can be assigned to items.
