Collaboration is the key to successful procurement. Scroll down to learn how to share your projects on MyArrow.

There are several ways to collaborate on projects within MyArrow. Choosing between them depends on if you want to collaborate online or offline. If you would like to collaborate online, simply share your parts list (BOM) with a colleague. You can also send your list of parts to a colleague via email if you’d like. If you want to collaborate offline, download your parts list and share via email, Slack, Teams, or any collaboration tool.

How to share a list of parts

  1. Log in to MyArrow and navigate to the BOM landing page
  2. Open the list of parts you would like to share
  3. Click Share in the header
    • Note: You can only share your list of parts with users in your organization that also have access to MyArrow
  4. Search for the user you would like to share your list of parts with
  5. Choose the permission level you would like to share with your colleague
    • You can choose either View or Edit permissions
      • View permission allows your colleague to look at your list of parts, but not make any edits
      • Edit permission allows your colleague to add or delete parts from the list and even switch out parts for crosses if they would like to. All of the changes that are made to the list will be recorded in the revision history in the top left-hand corner of the screen.
  6. Click submit

How to download a list of parts

  1. Follow steps 1 and 2 from above, then click Download in the header

  3. Open the Excel file from the downloads on your computer
    • Your file will contain the Best Buying Options (what Arrow recommends you should buy), All Buy Options (everything available to you), and BOM Details (an overview of your BOM). You will also have access to cross information and the grade of the cross.
