Sneak Peek: Purchase Order Dashboard Improvements

Focus on user interface data organization and gradual improvement of user experience is what we are doing at OpenBOM all the time. We are continuously looking for ways to simplify and streamline the user experience, listening to customers’ voices and our own experience with OpenBOM. 

As such we’ve been recently working to simplify the access to open and close POs (purchase orders). A very typical split in POs is to see open and closed orders. Here you go – a new dashboard shortcut is coming – Open / Close Purchase Orders. 

Production Planning: Dashboard Improvement 

One of the improvements of the production planning dashboard is to provide easy access to Open/Close purchase orders. It is usually the most popular filtering and we decided to introduce it as a dedicated shortcut in the dashboard. 

As you can see from the picture, it allows splitting POs into two simple groups. 

VIDEO: Preview 

In the following video, please check how Open/Close shortcuts are for both Open and Close PO in the dashboard. It will solve a lot of time for the people who use it a lot – procurement engineers and production planners. 


Dashboards are an easy way to navigate, slice, and dice data. At OpenBOM, we are gradually improving user experience to help make navigation and data selection easier. Purchasing dashboard is just one example of those improvements. 

Do you have an idea on how to improve the OpenBOM user experience? Please contact our support and we would be happy to discuss how to improve it and make it happen.
