Version 16.1r06 Release Notes

Improvements Included in the 16.1r06 Release:

This release applies only to the Version 16.1 product and earlier versions.
Do not install this release if you are running a version greater than 16.1.

  • CMB – When many tiny parts are combined into a single long bar a rounding error can cause that bar to become slightly over-allocated (resolved).
  • EST – Certain changes to the labor code formulas do not take effect in the labor calculations until FabSuite is restarted (resolved).
  • EST – Copy Job – Paint labor multipliers are not carried over to the new estimate (resolved).
  • INV – If an item is received, but not finalized, from a PO and then manually set to On Order then it can’t be set back to in stock (resolved).
  • INV – Transaction History Reports – Transaction numbers greater than 99,999 do not appear correctly on the reports (resolved).
  • ORD – The quote/order contact email address is now used as the default recipient when using the Email PDF or Email Excel options from a report.
  • PDC – Shipping a part to an intermediate destination, then changing the shipping route to jobsite-only and shipping to the jobsite causes the material location screen to appear incorrectly (resolved).
  • PDC – Imports – Sequences can be updated incorrectly in rare circumstances when an assembly is in multiple sequences/lots and the sequencing is updated during the import (resolved).
  • PO – Overdue Shipment Listing report lists material(s) as overdue if the date promised has passed even if it has been fully received (resolved).
