Custom BOM Properties

MatthewMatthew OS Professional, Developers Posts: 22 PRO
Is there a way to set custom properties that only apply to the BOM?  The use case is we want to use the BOM to drive purchasing, we would like to be able to purchase as items are completed to the master assembly and mark the status of items such as purchased, delivered, installed so that we can track the project as it propresses from design to installation.

    You will need to have a company set-up, then you can add custom properties that attach to parts.

    Alternatively you can use OpenBOM, it is designed to bridge the gap between inventory/purchasing/BOM
