What is a Property?
A property is a particular characteristic or a parameter of an object, such as length, volume, price, type, location, structure, etc. Properties are equal to initial inputs, which will be used while creating Items and Assemblies. You can use properties to calculate quantities, store rates and prices, text values, parameters for grouping in a report, etc.
