Account Analysis ideas?
Hi all! Our firm has been acquiring recent clients who need their books cleaned up quite a bit. We’re in the process of developing an accounting analysis process and am having a somewhat difficult time finding resources/inspiration. Does anyone have some thoughts/resources they’d like to share? Has anyone created their own account analysis template through Karbon?
Reducing template sections to one role
HiI was told during my Karbon template training not to mix tasks for different roles within the same section. Why is this?Some of our processes involve two colleagues working on one job at the same time, with the tasks often alternated between them. Each task is placed in its own section because the role has changed, resulting in a template with 50 or 60 sections, and each section contains one task. The template is therefore unwieldy and difficult to use. Why can't I create a single section with tasks for two different roles? It is possible to assign the work to a senior colleague in order to avoid confusion about ownership or accountability. Thanks!!!Best RegardsJessica Layson
Filter contacts by contact type and be able to export / mail to custom contact list
I would like to be able to generate a list of a specific contact type, for example, a listing of all individual clients with their email addresses that I can then put in to a program like mailchimp so I can email to a specific group of client.Or generate a list of all the lawyers we deal with so we can send them something customized.
Visibility to comments
We now encourage a lot to use comments for internal communication. There is an indicator in the pane to show how many staff can see the message. But when I click that, I cannot see which staff has the visibility.I am wondering, what is the quickest way to do that in current version of KARBON? And quickest way to remove those staff who is not required to be notified. and I would be happy to see if this feature can be added directly to show the staff name when I click on the visibility number. I am wondering if other peer firm may have the same need.
Activity Notification or Report
Is it possible to obtain a report or identify the time and date when a work item from within all work items reaches a certain status?For example, when customers complete their client task, the status is changed to Data Received. If 20 customers all complete the client task on the same day or over a few days, I want to be able to determine the order of who completed first without having to open every work item to see the time and date. This will enable me to keep a first in first out workflow going.
Preview Pane for Triage?
Does anyone know if there is the possibility of a preview pane in Triage. Maybe where the most recent email is open so I don’t need to click to expand every single email. It would save clicks. Perhaps there is a setting I don’t know about that allows for a preview pane @Craig Lohman
Is anyone using Zapier?
I’m curious how y’all are using Zapier?We are currently using it to in conjunction with TypeForm to collect and add client data to Karbon and QBO and create a client file in our file system.We’ve run into some issues, so I’m curious who else is using it and how you’re dealing with some of the problems.
How do you clean up the remaining fee balance balance between budget and actual after you raise the invoice and need to either write up or off the fee balance? I want to clean up balance when we complete the work and have a nil balance to bring forward to next financial year.Is it possible to carry some balance forward due to it’s ongoing nature and clean off some? Thank you 😊
Email window size
I know there’s probably a ton of HTML weirdness going on under the hood that I won’t even pretend to know about, but the size of the window when reading an email in Triage seems inconsistent and unpredictable, especially with emails that have large images.The window will expand to accommodate the entire image, then shrink back down to the height of maybe 8–10 text lines, which feels cramped.Other emails, usually newsletters with many paragraphs of text, will expand to scroll several pages and never shrink back down. I have to scroll all the way back up to reach the controls to clear or otherwise manage the email.As far as I can tell, there’s no way to expand or contract the window or predict when one email window will expand or contract. This can make managing Triage, especially from non-contacts, a bit of an unwelcome adventure.
Remove placeholder accounts from Email Insights
I’m reviewing our Email Insights and for the first time I noticed that our placeholder accounts are being calculated. We have colleague accounts that have never been activated for placeholders and between the three of them, I’m wondering what kind of impact this is having on my overall metrics.How can we remove the non-activated accounts from the calculations?
Colleague Utilization - Exporting Time
Does anyone know if there is a way to export the Colleague Utilization information such that time is exported in hours, like how it is visible in Karbon? When we export, all the time is in minutes… And my brain doesn’t work in minutes past 90 minutes - lol. vs exported:
Refresh My Work Screen
We just started with Karbon one of my accountants finished her Sales Tax report and I can see that it went to the supervisor for review but I just logged in and it must have been already updated. She still sees it assigned to her. Is there a refresh button or process she can perform so she knows that things are updated when she looks at her Work?
Is there any way to reorder the columns in the List View mode of the Work View?
By default my list view has the columns ordered in the same order they’re listed in the filter list:Name, Client Name, Related Client Group, Status, etc.Is there any way to order these? For some of my saved views I’d like to have the fees and budget over towards the left more, among other things.I have tried to drag and drop but that doesn’t do anything.Thanks in advance.
