Cubit Estimating Release 2022.1


New Function

Auto-lock for Trades

You can now start working in Shared access mode and Cubit Estimating will automatically lock any relevant trades to your user account. This creates a more natural approach to your estimating workflow.

The following list shows some of the actions that will trigger the Autolock feature;

  • Drawing or modifying a shape
  • Creating or modifying a line item or heading
  • Inserting from a Pricelist or Template
  • Dropping a shape onto a line item from the Viewport
  • Modifying a Calculation Sheet or Rate Sheet item
  • Changing values in the details pane or shapes pane
  • Adding a flag to an item

You will be prompted if a trade has been locked by another user.

You will still be required to manually unlock a trade when you have completed working.

You can also release all of your locked trades by exiting the job.
