In an earlier version of Cubit, sorting of the estimate was done outside the job. Cubit 8 brings you the Grouped View feature to be able to sort/analyse the estimate inside the job.
Note: This feature is currently available for Rate Analysis and Simple job mode only.
With this feature when the job is coded and analysed, any changes done to the Estimate is automatically reflected in the Grouped View without having to re-analyse the job.
Sorting also has more flexibility in choosing the Description with which you want to analyse the data.

Assigning Group Code to the Job:
