|multiple quantity (MP-APP-DPE)|
A subset of a single opportunity line item. Multiple quantities define any number of subsets that together make up the total quantity of a single line item. Multiple quantities can also be used in conjunction with forecasting. Forecasted quantities are not included in any system calculations.
As an example, you need to procure 5000 bottles of water but have them delivered to three different locations. Instead of creating three separate but nearly identical line items, you can create one that includes the basic item information and then define multiple quantities to provide suppliers with the different delivery locations and their associated quantities.
