QB Issue Resolution:

each item is unique, so yes you would need 1234-blk, 1234-wht, etc

No there is no group item in QBO that will sell multiple items by selecting one, you have to select each and every item

sub items are unique and are only used to organize the list, you have to order and sell each one – and are being replaced by categories

QB does not have an inventory pack breakdown function, or a pull from function (desktop or QBO).  Nor does it have a transfer function where you can move 1 pack to another item with a qty of 12 (assuming there are 12 in one pack)
