New Go To  Unentered and Unpicked Items

We’ve made it easier to navigate around the data in your job, by adding the ability to go directly to an unpicked or unentered item from the Trade Package Summary and Review pages. Simply clicking the warning icon will take you to the Trade Package Comparison page, where you can see the missing rate.

Additional Improvements and fixes

We’re continually adding improvements to Bartender to offer you the best user experience possible. On the Job Page you can now see the time a job was created in Bartender or received from Cubit. You can also now adjust a picked rate by a percentage from the Review Page.

We’ve also applied a number of fixes to Bartender as part of the release, including:

  • Fixed an issue where you couldn't add a supplier if their email included upper case characters
  • Fixed an issue where the Trade Package Comparison Page would sometimes not load
  • Fixed an issue where the Trade List jumped when you scrolled through it
  • Fixed an issue where picking the Estimate and a Quote would not update the Plugs percentage on the Trade Summary Page
