Work Filter clearing when I leave and come back (driving me CRAZY)
So… I am wondering if I accidentally changed a setting in Karbon. It used to be, when I used the filters in Karbon, let’s say I filtered by a specific client, to see all the work items for the client. If I selected a work item to look at the details, I could go back to the work section with my filter still active (I could still see all the work for that specific client). NOW, when I do this, my filter disappears and I have to filter all over again, it’s frustrating and wasting so much timeOddly, if I use one of my saved views, select a work item, look at it, and go back out to work, my filter is still there. It seems in the past few months, it has been like this. But, it did this once before, and then it went back to saving my filters when I went in and out, and now it’s back to not saving the filter. Not sure if it’s a cache issue, or Karbon doesn’t keep the filter anymore if you go somewhere else and come back unless it’s a saved view. But I don’t like this and hope there is a wa
Task assigned to someone else
Hello I’m looking for a best practice clearing my triage. Tasks that are part of a recurring work and assigned to a colleague will come to me for questions. I can’t assign it to myself, nor add to my week and end up keeping these questions in my triage until I can address them. Is there a better way to handle this situation?
How do I get a copy of this video to my clients?
There is a video I would like to send to a client about the new portal access. It says you can send a copy, but how do you get a link to send it? Is it just the help article link? Can they access it without being a community member?https://help.karbonhq.com/en/articles/6403578-client-portal-how-to-guide
What is the best practice to manage balance sheet recon work? Process; Balance Sheet Recon is prepared by Staff, approved by a Manager -- both in house. Is this 1 task in the work that is assigned to the staff member, then reassigns to the manager and update the status to awaiting approval?Or two tasks so the staff member can mark each recon complete & the manager has to monitor the work to know what is ready to review?

My Client Wants to Access their Responses to Client Tasks
My client wants to be able to view his client task which relates to payroll and timesheets/hours. He provides us in the comments the hours his staff has worked but wants to be able to go back and view his response.Once the Work Item has been completed, does this mean that he can’t access that anymore?I have created a test Work Item with Acme Corporation and noticed that when I communicate, the client doesn’t receive a new email with any additional comments. Is this the norm?

Annual repeating jobs showing already despite create work date no until Feb 2023
Hi allProbably user error but, as we work through our 2022 annual accounts jobs I am setting them up as a recurring annual job, all repeating in May 2022, and the Create Work date is 3 months before it starts. The reasoning being 1st February next year we can spend some time planning for when to schedule these jobs in and then move the due dates as appropriate. The problem is. as we have finished the 2022 jobs, I have a heap that have already gone and created themsevles. I can go into those jobs, look at the repeat, it def says starts 1 May, create work 3 months before it starts, create tasks 1 day before it starts, yet there are all these 2023 jobs on our annuals list. So frustrating. I know I could set the filter to try and exclude jobs starting after 1st February 2023 but my question is why are the jobs creating now and ignoring the instructions?
Admin mgmt of partner email (triage)
Is there a way for my admin to manage my triage in box? (A pre-triage, if you will)? I would love to have my admin pair down my inbox for me…. In the same way that colleges can see “my week”, can I also set up the ability for my admin to toggle between my triage and their own? (this would also be great for expected team absences, such as vacations…)

Hi there! I’m new to using Karbon, and I’m also a new business owner. I only offer payroll services through Gusto, and I am wondering if anyone has any advice on best practices for a client onboarding template related to onboarding a Gusto client? The onboarding template in Karbon’s library didn’t really apply. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!Thank you!
Billing - Exporting to QBO (Setting Up)
When exporting the invoice data to CSV for QBO, I noticed that the Work headings (ie. “Monthly Accounting for Jan 2022”) would be prepopulated in the “ItemDescription” field, which would be imported into QBO as “Monthly Accounting for Jan 2022”.For my invoices, though, I like to have a narrative, like “Preparation of the Monthly Accounting for Jan 2022” or “Preparation of Sales Tax Return for Quarter 1” rather than an abrupt listing.Does anyone have a workaround? I know we can edit the description in the csv file, but I’d like to get it to streamlined.
karbon time - no start and stop times in record
Hello all! We are wanting to move towards use of the time, budgets and future billing features of karbon. When we moved to karbon a year ago we also moved to QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Time for our time and billing process. For various reasons billing in QuickBooks Online is not working well for us. The main reason we did not initially go with karbon for time was the lack of seeing and editing start and stop times, only having time duration. How do other firms work around this? It seems for DOL purposes that we should have a record of when an employee starts work and ends for the day and has a lunch break, etc. Do you use karbon timeclock for limited purposes and use another app for time for payroll, etc.? Or, am I missing something? Is there a workaround to track/notate the start and stop times? I think I need to show other managers in our firm the positives of having the time entered in karbon for productivity and budget measurement and planning purposes, but I will ne
