Attaching Documents in PartsBox

The Challenge of Organizing Documentation

Organizing documentation related to electronic components can be a daunting task. A typical collection of datasheets, application notes, and other technical information can easily reach thousands of documents. Most engineers and organizations resort to storing these files on their computers or file servers, using a directory hierarchy. While this approach is common, it has several drawbacks:

  1. Significant time is spent on organizing the files: creating directories, sorting files, moving them around, and dealing with duplicates.
  2. Retrieving documents can be difficult and time-consuming, as one has to navigate through the directory hierarchy to find the desired files.
  3. Sharing and collaborating on the documentation is not straightforward, as files are scattered across different systems and directories.
