Can I multiply the quantity that Connex sends to or from QuickBooks?

You can instruct Connex to multiply the quantity and specify a conversion ratio.

Should I use unit of measure?

You could instruct our software to send a unit of measure, like carton, instead of multiplying the quantity. In QuickBooks, you can specify a conversion ratio. You could say a carton is ten pencils. The benefit of unit of measure is you can easily change them in QuickBooks. With these rules, you have to specify the conversion ratios such as three to one.
