Measurement Units for sensor layout

Currently, when we create a sensor layout, we have to write the full name of measurement units if the abbreviation has a superscript, subscript, greek letter or other special character.

I would like to see an easier way to enter the units in the sensor spreadsheet. Entering a long name such as ‘meter per second squared per volt’ instead of (m/s2/V) looks to me somewhat too much effort.

If we ignore the message that says at the top of the ‘Available Measurement Units’ page, we have to enter m/s/V for the short version. I would say, the system should be able to identify m/s/V or m/s2/V or m/s_2/V or m/s_superscripted(2)/V directly as ‘meter per second squared per volt’
