User experience is a very important thing for us at OpenBOM and we are passionate about building a configurable and flexible user experience. OpenBOM visual dashboard for Items and BOM is the greatest example of such a user interface. The most important part of the dashboard is the ability to configure it with any set of attributes we have at OpenBOM.
In this article, I’m going to help you learn how to configure the dashboard with the right attributes and use a filter to slice and dice it with the right data sets.
Create a User Define View
The foundation of the dashboard is a user-defined view. You can build it using properties from the catalog or other data sources. The catalog is the best way to get what you need. So, navigating to the catalog and creating a user-defined view is what you need to do first.
Here is the user interface to edit a user-defined view.
Dashboard user Defined view settings
The next step is to configure the dashboard using this view. The setting is on the top right and the dashboard will remember the last user-defined view you used.
To filter data in the dashboard you can use an easy filter mechanism to add any property and values. In such a way you will present exactly what you want in this dashboard.

A flexible dashboard is an easy way to present any data from any catalog and make it searchable and filtered in the way you want. The properties are coming from the user-defined view and the filter can be applied in the user interface. It can be a useful idea to create multiple dashboard views and use them for different purposes in the organization.
