  1. I don't like that I have to upload a BOM. I like the copy and paste option previously available.

    I don't like that I have only the option to upload a BOM. I like the copy and past version previously available. If it still exists, I cannot find it. I also like taking advantage of the full upload but it takes more work when only wanting to do a partial BOM to separate it out to do the upload

    • Optional minimal Report view

      An option for a more summarized view (similar to Octopart) would be nice for those using the site for large volumes of serial searching (my most common use of this site over multiple jobs has required a significant number of 'serial' searching).

      I don't know how much it would help others, but it would help me complete my tasks much more quickly.

      • Option to add a few extra parts to the quantity

        Sometimes we want to order a few extras... let's say, we need to order 20 sets of a part number that requires 2 per board... then the total quantity will be 20*2=40, but we never order exactly40, we need to order a few more 42, 43 or 50, etc. Currently it won't allow you to quote those extra quantities, only the exact qty (40 in this case).

        It would be great if you add a field to put some extra quantities manually, the new equation would be like: "Desired Qty * List Quantity+ Extras(optional) = Total Quantity"

              • Show OEM stock that is not in distribution

                Including stock availability for the component manufacturers that will sell directly would be a nice addition. For example, Analog Devices often has stock on a part that is not sufficiently available through distribution.

                Linear Tech is another OEM that often maintains stock levels outside of normal distribution channels.

                I am sure there are many others . . .

                  Is there any chance you could add the Australian Dollar (AUD) to the currency converter?

                    • "Details" shows the best price for the quantity desired

                      "Details" shows the best price for the quantity desired, or at least it's supposed to; it's not always correct. Regular FC search often reveals better pricing. Regardless of ticking the "tiered pricing" box or not

                      • Additional Check Box to select preferred distributor

                        it will be great to have an additional option or Check Box to enable us to select the preferred distributor only so that we can avoid the result from distributor that we are not able to engage for PO issuance.

                                • Buying more than one record at once.

                                  When you have more that 1 record from the same distributor (i.e. Mouser) on the list, there should be an option to buy all records from this distributor by 1 button click. So, when redirected to the distributor site, there should be all the records in the shopping cart.

                                        • Currency settings need improvement

                                          I registered to be able to select default currency but this appears to be broken. I am in Canada and Newark shows up in Canadian dollars, while Digi-key shows up in US dollars. In preferences I can not select Canadian dollars. This makes it difficult to compare pricing.
