Additional characteristics of Units

Just wanted to see if any creative ideas are available for this :-)

I have a case where we need to setup units. The base unit is called the Consumer Unit, then we have an Outer Box, and Pallet based on a multiplication of Consumer Units.

Now the challenge is the customer needs to register some specific characteristics of these units, for example the type of material used for packaging, and the dimensions.

As far as I can see it is not possible to define addtional fields on a unit, any other way I could work with this?

Hi Justin

It is not possible. The simplest way is to have a custom item type or table in the database with descriptions for each unit ID and some custom logic to retrieve and display that information in the template.
