Scale Department: This option is to set, weather this department and products associated to this department will use the electronic scales or not. Default option for this option is disabled. If you require all the products belonging to this department to used electronic scale, please enable this option. Basically once this option is enabled, all the products under this department will inherit this property. So all the products under a “scale department”, it will automatic try to get reading from an electronic scale and use the same sales unit as the department. Please note that if in your product setting, you select a different “scale unit”, the scale unit set in the product level will overwrite the scale unit at the department level.
