CFS Version 19

Scratch Builder Programs

One of the first things you will notice with this year's version is the new look of the screens. We have increased the size of most menus by 150%. This increase will make it easier to see and use on computers with large screen displays. There are several new options you will find throughout the scratch builder programs.
The most significant of these changes is the new keyword search of the Master File. This change makes it easier than ever to find items in the file. Type in a word, a partial word, or phrase and the program will search the entire Master File, including the Source and Part Numbers, Description, Size, and Item to find every occurrence of your key words. We have also made it easier to get to the search screen by including a magnifying glass icon that you can click on to take you into the search area in addition to pressing your F2 key.
To help make identification of your jobs easier, we now include the saved name of the job at the top of the screen after the job has been saved. This makes it easy to identify what job you are in the middle of when you get called away from your computer.
In the Packing Lists, there is a new option grouped in the Pull Lists that includes a column for returned items. In the Contract Notes, there is now an option to turn on Quantities when you click the Material button on the Contract Notes screen. We have added a layer to your output pricing to round your automatically calculated numbers to more sales friendly numbers.

Update Master File

We have added a Concrete Setting tool to make it easier to modify which Concrete Record the PVC, Ornamental, Wood, and Wire Panel Scratch Builders are using. This is a great place to go to quickly change your concrete records for all of your setups. This is especially handy when you bring in an updated merge module. This eliminates the need to look up your concrete record number because you will be able to see exactly what your other setups are using for concrete and set it accordingly.

Chainlink Scratch Builder

We have been busy in the Chainlink Scratch Builder program this year, putting in some much needed features. On the bracing menu, a new option for Horizontal Brace / Diagonal Brace / Truss Rod is now an option available.
When you choose a corner barb wire arm for an estimate, you will now get an additional menu which will make you determine if all of your posts will get corner barb wire arms or if only the corners will get them. When you omit the top rail on an estimate, you will now have an option on the defaults menu to toggle between a loop cap and a dome cap.
