The default measurement unit can be set under the Defaults & Customisation section when editing a company's settings.
Available measurement unit options are:
- Square metre
- Square foot
Updating this setting only affects new sizes and will not update existing sizes within the company.
The measurement unit can be changed at an area level, which allows you to have a mix of different measurement units across areas. To change the measurement unit of a size field, select the grey dropdown on the right-hand side of the field and choose from the available options.
When viewing a list of areas displaying with the total area size, you can decide which measurement unit the total is displayed in. Changing this does not affect the stored sizes, it is for display purposes only.
When running the tenancy schedule report, there is an option that allows you to specify which measurement unit the totals are displayed in. Changing this does not affect the stored sizes, it is for display purposes only.
