Finding missing BOM balloons in drawing

We want to ensure that a balloon callout exists for every item in the parts list (BOM) in our assembly drawings.  Is there a way to easily do this?  

 

Currently, if we have an assembly with 30 parts, we manually search for each of the 30 BOM balloon to verify that none were missed.  Since the balloons are not in order, balloon 5 could be on page 2 while 6 is on page 8.  This method is often time-consuming and error prone.

 

It probably goes without saying, but if ballons are missed, then assemblers have nothing to show them were the parts go and either come ask us or guess.

Edit your parts list.  On the left hand side is a column that will show you if that item has a balloon or not.

Hope this is what you were looking for.
