Sort BOM (Bill of Materials)

started a topic over 4 years ago

It would be helpful to organize the components within the BOM. Either an up / down arrow or drag and drop would allow us to group certain components next to each other. This would be much more flexible vs sorting by ascending or descending order only.

  • This is a very important feature for us and it would also be helpful if the BOM's didn't auto sort into alpha numeric order. We are an electronics manufacturing company and the schematic's our engineers produce are in a specific order (capacitors, diodes, transistors etc.) so I prefer to enter the components into DEAR is the same order as this aids in determining changes in the future, it also group's the type's of components together in size order (which is not alpha numeric). Being able to organize a BOM correctly would be very helpful.

  • I agree, control over Sort Order of BOMs is important. For us BOMs are sometimes used to pick stock from. If the sort order is not either AS ENTERED or ALPHANUMERIC then they can be frustrating to use. At the moment the sort order for  BOM when they are printed / displayed / exported appears to be based on another field like SKU Created or Modifed date.
