18 June 2023 - Enhancements for Invitation and Supplier Management



Buildsoft released an update for Cubit Select on Sunday the 18th of June 2023.


Known Issue

Adding a quote to a large trade package may sometimes be slow. We are currently investigating this issue and will provide a fix as soon as possible.


New Features

  • Automatic Supplier notification for new documents:
    • You can now automatically notify Suppliers associated with Trade Packages when new documents are assigned.

  • Timestamps for Supplier lifecycle:
  • When a Supplier’s lifecycle status is changed – Pending, Accepted, Quoted, etc. – a timestamp is displayed.
    • By hovering over the timestamp, a tooltip displays a history panel indicating the date of prior actions (such as Pending, Accepted, etc.).

  • Supplier note tags:
    • Users can now tag a note against a specific Supplier. These notes can be filtered and quickly identified both in the Quotes Summary and Quotes Comparison pages, and the Trade Packages tab.

  • Send messages to all Suppliers by status:
    • When sending a message to Suppliers, users can now choose if they wish to send it to a group of Suppliers by status (e.g., Pending, Accepted, etc.).

    • Trade Categories that have no exact match with Cubit Select’s categories will be ignored when imported.



  • Changes to the navigational elements on the Quotes page have been made to improve the user experience. You can now toggle between the Quotes Summary View and Comparison View from an icon, which is displayed above the Trade Package list on the Summary page, and to the left of the Trade Package dropdown field on the Comparison page.

  • Suppliers page load time improvements:
    • The Supplier page now displays 100 Suppliers per page to improve the page load time. Left/right arrows are available toward the bottom of the page to aid with navigating to other pages.


  • Data in the comparison grid can now be copied from Cubit Select using the keyboard shortcut CTRL + C (or CMD + C):
    • Cells can be copied individually.
    • Vertical columns can be copied by dragging over a selection or copying the entire column.
    • Horizontal rows can be copied by selecting the line number on the left side column.
    • Individual rows or multiple rows can be selected.


  • Fixed the ability to enter a number with or without a leading zero (e.g., .55 or 0.55) in the rate column.


  • A new prompt will appear after changing a heading amount in the Comparison Grid if that heading has items that have been calculated prior.
