Where Used: Needs to report Alternates and Substitute usages

Where Used: Needs to report Alternates and Substitute usages

The OOTB "Where Used" functionality currently does not show when a part is used as an alternate or substitute.  This product idea is to add an option for providing Alternate and Substitute relationships to be displayed from the current "Where Used" functionality.

This is critical when determining the impact for part obsolence.  Where used should be more than "just" the uses reference.  It should include where the part has been added to a BOM as an alternate or substitute.

I agree. Users need to be able to see if a part is identified as an alternate or substitute. It should also display on "Related Objects" tab. The Alternate and Substitute table should show if the part is defined as a replacement part.

We get asked for this regularly.  It would be a great add!
