Hi All!When setting up templates & tasks with reoccurring jobs, if you update the tasks within the template does it update the reoccurring jobs? I thought I saw that if the tasks weren’t yet assigned within the job and you updated the template, the new tasks would flow through. Looking forward to hearing from the community.
Hi everyone, I use client tasks to request information, however I am not sure if the client received the list OK (or whether it may have landed in their Junk mail). Is there a way for me, instead of setting up recurring reminders via Karbon, to get in touch with the client personally via e-mail and ask them if they did receive the tasks list, and if not - to add a link to it?Many thanks,Antoniya
I am struggling with “just click the little clock and find your work item” Why are some clients not coming up for me or other members of my team? Why can I not find work that I know I am assigned to select as my work item? For the life of me, I can not figure out why I would be blocked out of this. These are clients I know exist, and that I have assigned work for.When I search for what seems like the VERY basic function how-to, I get sent to info about how to set this up as a manager, but not much about how to trouble shoot the actual “clock in and clock out” part. What am I missing?
We’d like to create more of a true triage/helpdesk style client service with Karbon. Have any of you done this? We want clients to email a single email, have emails sent from a single email but with signatures of each user and the ability to assign tasks to each user. Is this possible?
In reading some of the Time and Budget posts, it seems that some firms are using the Time and Budget feature and they are not connected to QuickBooks Time. I don’t know that for a fact but that is the impression I get. Is that possible?I initially started the setup for the integration but never completed it. When I go to disconnect the sync I get a message that I will no longer be able to track time in Karbon. My thinking was to get more comfortable with the Time and Budget features before turning on the integration.I would appreciate any clarification on this. Thanks all!

Hi Karbon Community!I had a weekly bookkeeping client setup to start on Tuesday and to be due on Friday, but I just want it to start and be due on Friday.Is there a way to update the repeating schedule without deleting and starting over?I thought I could change the start and due dates of a work item and the repeater would take over from there, but that hasn’t happened.Does anyone have experience with this? The help articles and community topics mostly deal with setting up recurring work for the first time. -- Edit --Alternative answer from @LD7E:An add on to this option if there are a lot of recurring work items that need to be deleted. Set an end date on the current repeating work item that is a day or more before the next work item that has already been created. Once you save this it will automatically delete all future work items. Then you can go in and change the work start date of the last work item completed to the new day of the week you want the work to start and create the new
Hi all,We’ve recently signed up to Karbon and are getting into setting up our processes in the appWe currently send out documents, such as VAT returns via E-Sign software and are considering whether to continue with that approach or switch to sending the VAT return out as a Client Task, to be ticked when approved.E-Sign feels to have more of an audit trail and legality behind approval, whereas Client Tasks feels to be making the process easierAnyone been through the same though process?
Hi, we are a new user, still working on our configuration and learning. We had in mind that we could attach a live document to a work item. But, I am now realizing that any time we want to update the document (like adding this week's payroll to an annual based payroll workpaper file) we would have to download the document, update it and then upload the changed file back. So, it seems that karbon is not meant to work efficiently with live documents. Am I missing something? I hope I am stating my concern clearly and apologize if not. For example, as we are doing payroll work, in our current system we would have a payroll prep workpaper pdf file. Each time we prepared payroll we would add bookmarks and the next payroll prep workpapers to this same pdf document. Now it seems we would not so efficiently be updating the workpaper pdf file, if it is stored in karbon. Documents that are stored in karbon seem like they are best if static?How do other firms incorporate the information that is co
We are looking at improving our client onboarding process - high level of the process below.Currently, we launch a couple of onboarding work items and have triggers within that process to create work for recurring services as we are ready to begin that part of the engagement. The reason we do multiple work items is because multiple teams are involved and some of the work actually happens concurrently.What have you done within Karbon regarding your onboarding that has worked well for your team?

Hi guys,It’d be great to hear your personal experiences. Especially when it comes to Monthly recurring work which includes a number of tasks to be completed, sometimes To Do lists can become quite chunky (although can be cleared very quickly and easily usually).
