Platform Updates: XLSX BoM and Dashboard Updates

By The MacroFab Team  |  October 3, 2018

Our awesome development team continues to work hard to improve your experience with the MacroFab Platform. Here are some changes made we made in the past few weeks as they relate to importing an Excel spreadsheet as a BoM, and new details on the Dashboard.

Importing an Excel spreadsheet as Bill of Materials (BoM)

We have supported uploading Excel files (.xlsx) as a bill of materials, and we now have improvements for those customers with these types of files.

For those uploading an .xlsx file with their PCB, you are now alerted that the BoM tab houses these files for import processing.

When navigating to the BoM tab, you will be presented with a file or list of files for processing. Once the files are processed, they are removed from the pending list. You will also have the ability to delete files you no longer want to import to your project.

New PCB Dashboard

There is now a dedicated panel displaying all outbound shipments with tracking numbers as links to the tracking sites of carriers.

Also, due dates (dates it will be assembled by) have been added to orders featured on the dashboard (your top 3 orders as sorted by created date). If an order has been shipped, it will show the tracking number instead of the due date.

How can I get my PCB in 10-days?

In October, 2017, we announced our 10-day prototypes for PCB assembly service with a basic list of qualifications. Now when you hover over the “Want your order faster?” (on the quote screen) or the projected due date (at the top of the PCB workflow), a helpful checklist appears showing you how to augment your specific order to achieve 10-day status.
