Naming and renaming BOM


Is it possible to name/rename BOM? I already found:

Here it says that BOM doctype use an internal routine to define its names and that is not possible to name or rename BOM. Has anything changed in the meanwhile?

You might consider these?

Unfortunately rename tool doesn’t have BOM doctype so it is not possible.

Then maybe export the affected records, rename them as required, then reimport them.

To preserve the record integrity. you would need to take care to preserve the primary keys that relate the records.

I customized Form Type BOM with a Field in the 1st position, labeled it title and small text Type. Then selected mandatory and the other options you may want.

My client was having a headache in List view as all the BOMs listed with ID or item_name, but it was not suitable as sometimes you have different BOMs for creating an item (eg. internal or subcontracting). They really wanted this.

Then I went to the View Settings at the bottom of the Customize Form Type BOM and selected title to show in the List. This solved it for me, hope it helps.
