When editing the Unit of Measure in Method, it stops syncing correctly.

Unfortunately, the QuickBooks SDK (the tools QuickBooks gives us to interact with it) doesn't correctly handle changes to the UOM. In some situations, when you edit a UOM, QuickBooks will actually archive the original UOM and create a brand new UOM, assigning a new ID in backend. This makes it difficult, and in some cases impossible, for 3rd party apps, like Method, to accurately reflect these changes correctly within their applications.

In fact, Intuit recommends not to change the UOM. Instead, Intuit recommends you create an entirely new UOM set with the different base unit, and for items with the old UOM, you should create new items with a new UOM.

For more information on the ramifications of changing the UOM, you can read this article on Insightful Account, "Changing QuickBooks Units of Measure – No, No, No!"
