  • On BOM pages Pipeline now shows the WMS Community, for which Cost is calculated, in the Cost column for each Option Condition row. (B-01652)
  • When a Product existed in WMS for which no cost data was entered, Pipeline generated $0.00 cost without indicating that WMS cost data was missing. Now on BOM pages the user sees Product Cost in red if the Product exists in WMS but lacks a cost. In addition, a Phase Cost or Option Cost that contains such Products are displayed in red. Costs for which data exist in WMS are displayed in blue. (B-01763)
  • SalesSimplicity sales prices and resources are now retrievable in Pipeline and eHome when Pipeline is configured with a SalesSimplicity FTP account. This allows a builder’s customers to interact with floor plans and options on eHome and see the accurate associated retail sales price from SalesSimplicity. (B-01270)

In error messages regarding Building Phase Codes, spelling of “greater that” is corrected to “greater than.” The Building Phases data grid is now sorted by Phase Code. (D-01703)
  • An object reference error is eliminated on the Product Assignments page when the Houses hyperlinks are clicked. (D-01782)
  • You can import a Subcomponent quantity or multiplier value equal to 0 (zero), whereas previously a 0 (zero) quantity was imported to Pipeline as an empty quantity defaulting to 1 (one). (D-01733)
  • The Filter function on the Houses, Import Comparison View, Options Data Grid is activated. (D-01727)
  • A faulty link on the House Import Comparison View is corrected. (D-01764)
  • To eliminate a Quantity inaccuracy caused by the House Quantity import, Pipeline can now import and display House Quantity Parameters that contain an apostrophe. (D-01766)
  • You can now enter dependent conditions for House and Option Quantities by typing without regard for capitalization. You can enter any capitalization (case), and Pipeline automatically chooses the correct option. For example, upon typing Elev_B or elev_b, pipeline automatically chooses the correct dependent option named ELEV_B. (D-01693)
  • The House BOM ‘BASE + Elevations’ view formerly displayed all options that contain the word ‘BASE,’ including non-Base Options with titles such as BASE_CTILE_WALL. Now only options in the BASE elevation and all other elevations are displayed.. (D-01696)
  • A scenario in BOM generation existed whereby the BOM output would generate multiple option/condition combinations that were identical. This has been fixed. (D-01714)
  • Pipeline now automatically groups House BOM line items with the same option and condition under a single option condition line item. (D-01715)
  • The House BOM ‘Generate All’ button now correctly generates every option. (D-01731)

  • You can now view a new node which shows a left/right key measure swap on the BOM Trace. (D-01728)
  • Under certain conditions custom options did not display on the Job BOM page. Pipeline’s method of processing the Job BOM is corrected to address this issue. (D-01772)
  • Previously a left/right key measure swap could not be performed in the queue. Now when generating a BOM in the queue, a left/right key measurement swap can be performed successfully. (D-01745)
  • Pipeline no longer errors out when you copy a Community that contains a House with an empty price for that Community. (D-01771)
  • In a visual display of a trace for a worksheet product, the worksheet name was being listed as ‘Reconciled Products’. (D-01775)
  • To prevent errors on the Worksheets page, Products without an assigned Building Phase or Style are not listed. (D-01783)
  • When multiple Pipeline Worksheets were opened simultaneously, data sometimes became jumbled between the Worksheets. To alleviate this issue, Pipeline now utilizes separate sessions for each open Worksheet. (D-01736)
  • Coded instances of the word “Base” are replaced with your “Base Option” setting. (D-01740, D-01749)
  • A typographical error in the ‘phases successfully sync’d with WMS’ message is corrected. (D-01735)
  • Changing the building group on a building phase could potentially cause duplicate phase codes in WMS. (D-01713) Requires WMS 5.5

  • Total Costs now display correctly on the House Estimate page for Options that are costed. (D-01762)
  • For merged Products in the Job BOM Phase view, Pipeline will now calculate and display merged Product Cost when at least one of the merged line items has a Unit Cost. The most recently updated Product Unit Cost is chosen in the calculation. Pipeline will no longer display ‘n/a’ in the Cost column of the Job BOM if one or more of the merged Products was not assigned a Unit Cost. (D-01767)
  • The Pipeline Job Estimates page will no longer error out when performing comparisons with Products that lack a cost. (D-01773)

  • For Sales and eHome users, the ‘Create Job from Notebook’ button now creates a Job with the correct House, Orientation and Community. If no Community is sent from eHome, the default Master community is assigned. In addition the Base option is included with the Notebook Options that are imported to the Job. (D-01495)


Released 9/19/2016


  • Community resources have been added to the CommunityXML eHome feed. (B-02086)
  • Bid Cost Description mapping has been updated to work not only on the Bid Product sync to WMS, but also when bid products are updated during a House BOM or Job BOM sync to WMS. (D-01744)
  • Fixed House Quantities Column sorting by Source. (D-01743)
  • Fixed House Quantities batch editing for Firefox. (D-01748)
  • A new methodology for defining conditionalized bids was introduced in the last release. In doing so, the bid products attached directly to a house option rather than directly to an option, were no longer showing on the bid product sync to wms screen. These have been added back into the mix of conditional bid items looking to go to WMS during a Bid Product sync. (D-01746)
  • Customers trying to log in when all licenses were taken, were not aware of that until after they attempted to log in. We are now displaying the total licenses in use along with a quick link to view active licenses on the login screen. (D-01747)
  • The ability for an empty job option to send over the Default Empty Option Product was bypassed in the last Pipeline release. This has been brought back. (D-01753)
  • Pipeline will now correctly adjust job quantities within WMS when a PO and non-PO item shares the same name and quantities, rather than just removing the non-PO items. (D-01754)


Released 8/19/2016


  • Data has been persistent when viewing the House BOM page when data was updated from elsewhere, like the queue. The House BOM page no longer needs the user to navigate to another House BOM to clean out the session values, it will reload with fresh data any time the page is refreshed. (B-01911, D-01734)
  • A much smoother process for working with the pre-import modification setup has been put in place along with the ability to export and import the data for mass Excel modifications. (B-01907, D-01670)
  • House Quantity API endpoints have been added in order to promote direct communication between BIM Pipeline and external systems. (B-01967)
  • New ability to quickly enter multiple quantities to a job or house through an all new form. You no longer have to add one product at a time. Once multiple products are added to a job our house, you can also now quickly perform an inline edit of multiple quantities at once while using the batch edit mode. Once all changes are made, click Save to persist the changes to the database. (B-01283, B-01933, B-01885, B-01886)
  • New styling has been given to the Show Parent in Rollout checkbox on a product subcomponent list in order to provide better clarity to what it is and used for. (B-01942)

  • Removed Building Group Selection when adding, Copying To, or Copying from a Subcomponent Manually through the UI. (B-01925)
  • Initial WMS database settings have been introduced to the Settings section so any admin user can input these settings to start up the initial connection to WMS rather than await an IT administrator’s time to get onto the server itself to set this up. (B-01968)
  • Pipeline now treats budgeted items in WMS the same as items that have a PO issued. We will not remove them from WMS and will now send a delta value instead for adjustments and back outs. (B-01980)
  • When a bid product is connected to a global option it will now be picked up during the bid product sync and not just during a house or job BOM sync. This will now prevent bid products from going to WMS via a BOM and then getting flagged for deletion when sending the bid products at the master level. (B-01913)
  • Added SMTP email server settings to the main settings section within the UI so the settings didn’t always take a system administrator to get onto the server itself to make the settings updates. (B-01962)
  • The user menu button has been hidden from the user when the user is not logged in. (B-02035)
  • A mass overhaul of many Costing module pages has been performed to ensure the look, feel and function matches the estimating side of Pipeline. (B-01959, D-01637)
  • Additional House Name Alias property added for use within eHome or a Sales app, if the house name needs to stay non-salesy for BIM or Estimating departments, yet differ for customer facing systems. (B-01832)
  • We have added a new notification that tells the user when all their licenses are in use and provides a glimpse to who is logged in and when their last activity was. (B-01780)
  • New data access architecture begun that will improve performance, enhance code reusability and provide better debugging clarity. (B-01921, B-01946)
  • Performance optimization done to the Pipeline database for better organization, utilization of space and pace of growth. (B-01990)

  • When attempting to delete a BOM source type, if the source has been used a proper notification will be presented. If the source has not been used the source type will now be removed as desired. (D-01673)
  • The max character length for house quantity dependent conditions has been increased from 128 to 500 to support longer condition statements. (D-01646)
  • Included “and not” option to dependent condition dropdowns and included checks to remove faulty spacing upon saving the dependent condition. (D-01674)
  • An export of the filtered view in either csv or excel format has been added to the House BOM page in order to allow the user to export a subset of all the generated House BOM’s. (D-01631)
  • The Job BOM was missing its condition within the product trace causing the retrieval of the trace data to fail at times. This has been resolved. (D-01632)
  • Removed non-functioning ‘Resources’ button from Product Manf/Styles grid and fixed general UI – column widths, display, etc. (D-01494)
  • When editing a Spec Set Product conversion, the Toast Message is giving the opposite, reversed message. This has been updated along with setting a 50 character limit on the Spec Set Name. (D-01517, D-01520)
  • Redesigned the building phase rule page in order to trim down a user’s necessary steps required to create phase rule conditions as well as restored general page functionality. (D-01659)
  • The copy to product and copy from product buttons on the subcomponents page now copy over the correct swap parent status. (D-01672)
  • WMS Integration DLL improperly capping log files. The process is designed to archive the log file at 5 MB and delete the original, starting afresh. The starting afresh was not happening. (D-01665)
  • Fixed WMS product sync page now takes into account products having multiple styles and sends all of the chosen styles to WMS. (D-01666)
  • When Pipeline connects to WMS all connection pools are now closed after a connection is disposed, freeing the database from previously logged in user profiles. (D-01622)
  • When syncing a global option bid product to WMS within a system that has multiple global option prefixes defined, the auto creation of the bid products phase description will no longer pick up on all the global descriptions but rather the relevant one that is of the option the bid product is attached to. (D-01639)
  • Options removed from a job within a change order now have their removals tucked in the correct configuration on the modified send page to WMS. (D-01664)
  • Removed a function that was causing deletion issues with WMS job syncing. Filtering out manually created estimates in WMS to prevent users from having to recreate them. (D-01671)
  • Additional tooltips added to the top level pages for better clarification. (D-01648)
  • Added over 75 new activity log events which can now be found in the newest activity log page, effectively deprecating activity log v3. (D-01660)
  • Some notification links from the main navigation dropdown have been linking to incorrect pages and have now been fixed and navigate to the correct item being displayed. (D-01676)
  • An update to the Pipeline SOAP API service to allow a WSHttpBinding or BasicHttpBinding per the client’s applications choice. (D-01690)
  • Column headers for the grid on the Phase Product Costs page are now more accurate and robust along with increased precision on the database reads for the grid to ensure the data being retrieved and saved is accurate. (D-01667)
  • Communities now support adding very large groups of master options and house options in a single instance without timing out. (D-01654)
  • The sort function for custom options on the custom option page will now work properly without throwing an error message. Clicking on the word code to sort by code number was locking up Pipeline. When clicking on return to previous page from the error, the code box was still highlighted and would not allow page advances. (D-01653)
  • The ability to copy custom option quantities to other custom options has been restored. (D-01647)
  • The column headers of the Custom Option Products export have been updated to match the import format. (D-01531)

  • Presets page now recognizes a preset id of 0 as the indicator to create a new preset. (D-01679)


Released 8/15/2016


  • When a list of job quantities were made up of the same building phase and style the products were all getting condensed into one line item, summing up the quantity value for the different products. We have adjusted the job quantity display filter to prevent incorrectly combining items that share an option, phase, and the default style. (D-01677)
  • When syncing a Job BOM to WMS the products rounding value in WMS was being reset. We have updated the process to properly reflect the rounding status and update is properly in WMS when a Job BOM is sent to WMS. (D-01689)
  • The product tax status on an item in WMS is getting changed inadvertently due to an error in generating the comparison between Pipeline products and WMS items. We have properly adjusted the comparison so the sync process no longer updates the WMS item taxable setting incorrectly. (D-01720)
  • Included a fix to the Job BOM sync to ensure all deleted products are fully selectable on the modified send page to allow the user the choice to delete them or not. (D-01725)


Released 7/1/2016


  • When adding products to a job if the same product from two different styles was added to the quantities, the display was combining those together as one. The two uniquely styled products will now show as two separate line items on the job quantities page. (D-01657)
  • When sending a job BOM to WMS and using the modified send selection, the filtering of options with a net quantity of zero was preventing the user from seeing those options on this page. We have adjusted the timing of the filters to allow these option removals to be seen from the modified send page. (D-01662)
  • When a house BOM with an extremely large amount of data was being exported the time it took to process was exceeding the timeout value in some instances and was causing the export to generate a blank exported file. The database statements in this export have been optimized and this process timeout length has been increased to allow the data to be properly exported. (D-01663)
  • Bid Product Sync to WMS page was timing out on record sets in the tens of thousands. A more efficient process has been put in place to increase the performance drastically along with consolidating the similarities within the code when processing Product Sync’s as well. (D-01675, B-01991)
  • When generating costs for a House BOM from WMS item costs, the saved costing data was not fully capturing the Building Group properly so adjustments have been made to properly capture that data. (D-01682)


Released 5/19/2016


  • The Job process in Pipeline has been updated to be less intensive minimizing the configurations when building the estimate for the job. A user still gets Job Configurations manually or via WMS at the option level, but at the Quantity, BOM and Sync to WMS steps, we are only showing one collective set of options that are currently on the job. If you need to modify what goes over to WMS on the Job Estimate you will then be able to see it broken down by configuration again and be selective about what is sent. This process should make it much easier on the estimator when building an Estimate, especially if a job has dozens of change orders. (B-01871)
  • A new panel has been added to the Job Options page that will show the user a grid of job configurations against options and the quantity changes across the two so that a user can quickly tell what the life cycle of an option is on a job. (B-01851)
  • Tracing from a product level down into House and Job BOM’s has now been added and can be found under the Reports > BOM > Trace – Qty Down. (B-01861)
  • Additional indexing on House BOM related database tables has been added to increase the speed of the data retrieval on the House BOM, Job BOM, Option BOM, Custom Option BOM and Worksheet BOM pages. (B-01905)
  • A new sortable and collapsible view has been put in place on the product sub-components page replacing the existing grid to make it easier to read and modify products that have a large number of subcomponents. (B-01683)
  • In Pipeline’s House BOM page it is possible to sync an option that belongs to all houses in a community but is not attached to a specific house. This would correctly create an option in WMS. However, on the House Option Sync to WMS page Pipeline was trying to remove this option from WMS. (B-01829)
  • A new spec set export has been added to the main spec set group page that exports all products for each spec group. We have also improved the deletion process on import to now check for spec set parent groups before removing the spec set so if the spec set is not in the file it will no longer get unintentionally removed. (B-01828)
  • A numeric count of Style and Product Conversions has been added to the grid on the Spec Sets page for easier identification of how many there are. (B-01812)
  • Improved UI messaging has been added to the Calculations page to notify the user of an improper calculation that will prevent the improper calculation from being used during a BOM process, preventing a failed BOM generation result. (B-01836)
  • The Building Phases section now has a details page for a Building Phase, rather than just the basic inline edit. This new details page also includes a panel that allows the user to see and add products to the building phase. (B-01846)
  • Elevation options have been added directly into the “All House Options” and “Other Master Options” selection lists when adding options to a community to increase the users efficiency in making sure all needed options are added to a community. (B-01848)
  • As a job bom is generated and a house needs to be flipped in its orientation, if new products get created, the visual element of that in Pipeline needed to be enhanced for a better understanding of what was taking place. (B-01874)
  • New ability added to the building phases page allowing the user to delete multiple building phases one at a time as well as import them for quick updating of multiples at once. (B-01825)
  • Improved UI messaging on the Building Phase Sync to WMS page. (B-01728)
  • Enhanced the performance on the Bid Sync to WMS page. (B-01896)
  • A new utility page has been created that will allow a Pipeline user to view whether job configurations and their options are in sync between Pipeline and WMS at the following location: dashboard/builderbom.integrations.buildermt/utilities/jobhealth.aspx (B-01857)
  • The WMS View Sales utility page at dashboard/builderbom.integrations.buildermt/utilities/viewsales.aspx has been given access to reset the Approval status of a configuration in WMS back to False in cases where a config needs to be re-approved due to it missing in Pipeline. (B-01856)
  • Additional UI messaging has been added to the Create New User page to provide better feedback when a username or email is already in use by another account. (B-01844)
  • Added a new field for size to the master option level giving an option the ability to have a size set prior to being applied at a house or community level. (B-01901)
  • New Pipeline API endpoints have been added to both the SOAP and REST API to allow basic add, update, delete and get calls to our Products module, including Products, Units, Manufacturers, Styles and Building Phases. (B-01875)
  • Pipeline’s default community location for google maps has been updated to CG Visions current office location. (B-01810)


  • When receiving a Spec to Sale from WMS that has change orders in between coupled with estimates, the Spec or original configuration in Pipeline was finding itself with extra quantities of options that existed already on the change orders Pipeline had. WMS is removing the change order and condensing the current options into the original sale. Pipeline will now handle this similarly with a result of the needed option quantities on the job. (D-01635)
  • When applying system quantities to a job, quantities that were attached to a parent option were getting missed and thus not showing on the Job BOM. This has been corrected and you will now see the products from the parent option on the Job Quantities page connected to the child option. (D-01652) • Occasional logins were timing out during the login process as the Activity Feed on the Dashboard was using an inefficient database query once the activity log became too large. (D-01605)
  • The BOM generation process was recently enchanced and in that process the Custom Option BOM began to include all conditional products rather than no conditional products when generating the custom option BOM directly from the custom option products page. Without other selected options on the job (D-01600)
  • We did a clean sweep of all pages with different access levels to verify the Permissions settings provided per Role type were acting as expected. Made a number of updates throughout Pipeline to accommodate. (D-01582)
  • If a job configuration was received from WMS with a negative option quantity, Pipeline was no longer sending that negative estimate back to WMS. (D-01610)
  • Orphaned House BOM’s are now able to be deleted row by row as desired directly from the House BOM page. (D-01619)
  • Refined processing has been added to the main products page in order to improve performance when encountering large amounts of data. (D-01621)
  • When an extremely large number of products are in both Pipeline and WMS the comparison process used to determine what needs to be added, updated or deleted from WMS was timing out. A new refined and enhanced data retrieval and comparison process has been implemented to alleviate this timeout, preventing products from appearing to all need synchronized again to WMS even though they may not have needed it. (D-01611)
  • The Option Cost report found under Reports > WMS Costing was not loading data properly. This has now been adjusted. (D-01585)
  • Bid items that were used as subcomponents could get sent to WMS when found on a House BOM. However, when a bid item sync to WMS is performed, bid items attached as subcomponents are not recognized. This causes those bid items in WMS to be seen by the sync page as needing to be removed from WMS. To prevent this circular connection of add from the House BOM and delete from the bid item sync we have disallowed the user from creating a subcomponent from a Bid product and provided a UI notification if they attempt to set a subcomponent in that way. (D-01589)
  • If a default empty product is put into the settings that does not actually exist in Pipeline, an empty job bom send to WMS will fail if it contains an options that needs to use this product. We have made an update to allow the rest of the estimate to go over, just skipping the non-existent default empty product. (D-01649)
  • Global options can now be assigned to a house from the house options page. (D-01573)
  • The workflow of selecting one or many As-Built job xml files has been enhanced so comparisons can be done easier across options from multiple or single files and no phantom columns get displayed. (D-01630)
  • The job bom export to XML was always dropping the XML file out with the same name, even as the view was switched. A more informative XML file name has been put in place. (D-01551)
  • When importing and exporting job and house quantities with additional parameters, the data was getting mixed up with additional parameters getting added to the export and then back in again. (D-01586)
  • When exporting a House BOM to XML there was an extra element to provide what the product source originated from. However, this does not line up with the expected schema for the import so the product_sourceid has been removed from the export. (D-01626)
  • When exporting job quantities, we were dropping quantities from all sources, which was good except when it went out to and XML file, which then had a header of all one source. If importing that file back in or to another job all job quantities came back in with that one source. You can now export by source type. (D-01587)
  • When importing a Job XML file into Pipeline, if certain Products, Styles and Manufacturers did not exist the creation process was not completing successfully. (D-01593)
  • When importing a house XML file that has a new Product, it was automatically associating the new product creation to the Building Phase in the XML source, even though the Pipeline user was wanting the Product to be put into a different Pipeline Building Phase. (D-01594)
  • When a Job BOM had products that appeared on multiple options, in Phase View the summed product quantity was correct, but the summed costs were not, even though the total phase cost was correct. (D-01555)
  • When costing a Job BOM, a few building phases were listing duplicates in the Phase View if one option had a cost and another, in the same building phase, had an n/a cost. (D-01552)
  • Occasionally when a product was copied, along with its subcomponents, there were several duplicates of the subcomponents that were getting undesirably created. (D-01584)
  • Adjusted the House BOM costing function to ensure the UI message displaying the cost retrieved matched exactly to the penny to the cost shown in the Grid. A few cases of Rounding were causing the values to be different by a couple pennies. (D-01485)
  • Occasional timeouts were occurring with the right data when trying to view a trace of a final BOM product. (D-01579)
  • An improper link on the tracing view of a custom option was linking a custom option back to the option page looking for an option with an id of the custom option rather than a custom option based on the custom options id resulting in a option that couldn’t be found. (D-01623)
  • House Option Imports were struggling when encountering an apostrophe and changing them to a double apostrophe. (D-01491)
  • Issues when exporting options to Excel when the formatting of option codes made Excel interpret the value as a number removing leading 0’s or as an alphanumeric value showing up in scientific notation. Additional formatting prevention has been put in place to avoid these situations. (D-01532)
  • The house elevations grid was not always saving correctly when the option had no cost value entered. (D-01550)
  • Importing spec sets was failing if the calculation had an apostrophe in it. Special consideration has now been given to the calculation field containing that special character. (D-01556)
  • Tool tips for Progress Status indicators was not showing any text after an apostrophe. (D-01557)
  • The macro on the Lump Sum Option Products sheet has been revised to support a significantly larger dataset from the Option Products sheet as well as a significantly larger matrix when building out option products to the Option Products sheet. (D-01566)
  • On the utility page that sends house bom’s to WMS, the community ID being used to look up house bom’s was incorrectly being pulled from the dropdown. Rather than the community ID being retrieved it was using the numeric order value of where that community was in the list. Most users would not be affected as they typically only have one community (Master) that they work with or Master is still first and has an ID of 1. But if a user had a Master as community ID 2 or something different the ID didn’t match the ordering causing an invalid lookup of the BOM to send to WMS. (D-01615)
  • When adding a product to a custom option and changing the style, an error was being thrown preventing you from saving the product. (D-01627)


Released 2/19/2016


  • New functionality for WMS to clean up deleted options is being called too often and causing the Job BOM sync to take much longer than before (D-01591)
  • The house quantity As-Built/Multi-As-Built modification page was throwing an uncaught error when attempting to Compare and Import (D-01592)
  • The Job BOM generation is no longer looking to dismiss values less than .001 from the BOM and resulting in a rounded value of 0 being found within an option as we attempt to sync to WMS (D-01595)
  • When a Job BOM in Pipeline contains a product with no Building Phase the sync to WMS will not go (D-01597)
  • The main products page has lost its ability to expand a product that has subcomponents (D-01598)


Released 2/5/2016


  • Unable to Sync non-configuration options created on a Pipeline Job BOM to WMS without it creating additional unknown estimates when certain sales ID were misaligned. This fix will require a complimentary WMS version of 5.3.1 (D-01565, D-01570)
  • When using the Houses API to edit options applied to a house the options were getting added again rather than updated (D-01571)
