How do you make a materials list (cut list or buy list) useable for a builder?

Need to set default pricing for product/materials to use as default template. This way generating my materials list will be quicker. I do not want to enter vendor specific pricing. I want to enter labor pricing for specific materials. I want this to default to my setting per item/sf/etc. each time i choose that template to start a plan.
I hope this question makes sense. Please help.
I'm trying to get a materials list going for decks, but the deck plank materials aren't being factored into Calculate Materials in Area/Room.
It does work when I Calculate Materials for All Floors or select the planks individually and use Calculate Materials from Selection. I also recently discovered that it works if I calculate in area from a floor above where the planks are, even when nothing is visible on that floor of the plan.
How can I remedy this?
I am looking for a video I watched a while back that explained how ther Master List worked and what the reason was for the Default column and it's check boxes. Anyone know where this is? Chief streamlined their videos and got rid of MANY of the older videos. Now they are all organized by 28 topics here:
but a few years ago a simple "Materials List" search would have yielded 50 videos. Now they only have 4, these:model home demonstrations
None of these videos explain what the Default checkbox option inside the Master List is for. I remember it gave you the option of different master list prices for the same item.
It might have been a materials and budget demonstration that was part of one of their model home demonstrations, or a marketing video. So I might be screwed and out of luck.
