Pos to weight by product


At the moment, when we create a new product and choose the unity of measure **kg**,
we have to tick the checkbox 'To Weigh With Scale' in the Point of Sale part.

We want to speed the process of creating a new product, avoiding filling manually this parameter.

Brief presentation

This module adds the field **'To weigh'** in UOM categories (set to **false** by default).
