  • Cost/m2
  • Labour Conversion (from a Job configured in Material / Labour mode)

Custom Report Builder
We’ve added some new features and functions to the Custom Report Builder:

Now available in Trade Notes:

  • Item Codes
  • Variation Codes
  • Option Codes
  • Labour Conversion

Now available in Rate Nodes and Trade Item Results:

  • Item Codes

We’ve greatly improved performance for large Jobs. Totals are calculated up to fifteen times faster when entering or changing Quantities or Rates on large jobs.

  • Fixed a rare issue where a Price List was not unlocked in a network environment after a user closed that Price List
  • Fixed an issue that was caused when replacing a Job which had Options assigned to it through Job Import, was causing an error to display
  • Fixed an issue where copying and pasting a row did not copy and paste the No. column

  • Fixed the loading display when copying and pasting large jobs to specify what was loading
  • Fixed an error message when assigning more than 1 code group in Cubit Standard

  • Fixed an issue where a warning message was not shown when editing the total of an Item
  • Fixed an issue where manual totals using INCL or EXCL or NIL or NA or NOTED were not able to be entered into Jobs using Material / Labour Job Configuration
  • Fixed an issue where updating Cubit to the latest version would reset the Header or Footer to the Cubit default regardless of what previous Header or Footer was assigned
  • Fixed an issue where updating Cubit to the latest version would reset the column layout to the default regardless of what the previous column layout was
  • Fixed an issue where editing a Heading would automatically expand the Heading above it
  • Fixed an issue where using Add Rate from a Price List would exclude the Unit column
  • Fixed a rare issue when Importing a CSV file (which includes line breaks) as a Code Group would cause an error message
  • Fixed a rare issue when opening a Job with a Code Group assigned as the Account Group for a Job would display an error message
