Hello Fellow Peers! So far we have only lightly started using My Week, but will need to be fully experienced in using My Week by the end of the year. Now that I am really digging into it, I’m curious if everyone else who is using it more already has the answers:Is there a way to filter My Week to show completed Notes and Work? There is no quick way to see if they are completed without clicking on them. When the To-Do list goes away, how will we know something has been moved to Done (by accident) if it hasn’t been completed yet? What happens in situations where the Work is assigned to you, but then you also have a task assigned to you within that Work? If you mark the task complete, the whole thing in My Week will then show that all your task are complete, and if you aren’t paying attention, might move the whole thing to Done even though there are a bunch of open task. I think maybe the most obvious answer is to to either have all your tasks assigned to you, or none of them (conside
Hi everyoneI wanted to ask how others handle re-assigning Works please.We are changing our workflow so that the Work reassigns using automators once someone completes their section.(based on valued advice from the Community :-)However, if the last person the work is assigned to is say me and it stays that way once the work is complete, then will the next repeat also be assigned to me, rather than to the first person in the cycle?Do we need to put in an automator at the beginning of the Work to ensure it is assigned to the right person? Or to do that at the end of the previous Work so that the repeat picks up the right person to start the Work?Would appreciate your thoughts.Thanks!Rob
Hi, I am not sure if it is already implemented but is there a way to have the “Expenses” coded on a repeating work (Time and Budget section) be automatically coded on the next set of work just like the budgets? If not, is it possible in the future to have this feature?
Hi all,As part of building our understanding of which e-signing approaches are used across Karbon customers, we’d love to know more about the tools (such as DocuSign, Adobe Sign, Go Proposal, Ignition, etc) you use to collect signatures and approvals and the workflows in which you use e-signing.If you have few minutes spare, we’ve created a short e-signing survey or if you don’t mind sharing feel free to leave a response below.If you’d like to chat with me - the survey has a question at the end where you can leave your email address, or you can drop me a message.Thanks!Stuart
I’ve searched around to see if this has already been posted but can’t find anything. Apologies for the duplicate if so.Is anyone else seeing that the Status column doesn’t sort in a logical/useful manner in a Work List View? We would expect this sort to be ascending/descending on the value of the Status field. However, it doesn’t appear to work that way.I contacted Karbon support about this and they said: The Status column is sorted by the due date (the earliest due date first) of the work-item, and then in ascending order of the name of the work-item and then to break a tie the ID of the work-item. Can anyone else make sense of this? Should I submit a “feature request” to try to influence a change? Or am I looking at this incorrectly?
Question for the community: I’m implementing a sort of response time service level agreement where certain levels of service have quicker responses. Has anyone implemented this in their firm?If so, have you implemented something in Karbon to manage this? If so, interested in sharing? 😅
Hi, been watching the client portal webinar and all looks fantastic - great work!A couple if questions:If a client has multiple entities in Karbon that are managed with the same email address, are they able to create logins to see work for each entity? e.g. company, individual, trust? Or will they only be able to see the work for the ‘main’ entity their email address is assigned to ? With the client portal and completed tasks - is there anyway to sort these in a particular order (eg date most recent) - I can;t tell how completed tasks are sorting by default and a text task I have just completed appear 2/3 way down the list. After creating an account the confirmation email that a client receives comes from “Karbon Concierge” - most clients will have no idea who this is and will miss the practice name (in the subject line) - could this be changed to the practice’s Company Name field (in Settings, Account Settings)?Many thanksRob
Hi all, I’m trying to review some team members’ productivity on tax returns. I’d like a report summarizing, for a given period:Team member Work completed Time budget Actual time I tried doing this using the Completed work filter. This doesnt work because ultimately all tax returns get assigned back to the admin team for signing and filing, so when they go into completed status they’re no longer assigned to the preparer. Am I missing how to do this?
Does anyone use work/tasks for internal projects? Do you add your firm as a “client”? So the work can be created?Example: if we had a repeating work card for invoicing clients, a junior internal team member compiles the completed client work into client invoices, and we have senior internal team member review before sending invoices to the clients. Would make sense to have this be a repeating “work card” so this can be tracked. And if one of the team members moves on their “tasks” can be reassigned. Does anyone handle internal work this way and if so do you make your firm a “client” for the section “who to bill to”?Does anyone do something different than make a “work” card for internal work?
We have recently started using Karbon. The Work Templates are generally “Completed” by the admin team eg when returns are lodged We are wanting to report on how many Jobs were completed by the accountant who prepared the job and it doesn’t appear you can filter by a role. When use filters on completed and assignee it is listing the jobs as the role that completed/the Karbon job which is generally not the person who prepared the work. Anyone having this issue or have found a work around?
I’m not sure if something might already exist or if this would need to be a feature request.Wanted to know if there was a way to set the Privacy of a Person Contact to show visability of communication connected to their contact card to only those who are also part of the client team for the organisation. Eg. “John” has sent an email to us (CBC) this email is automatically connected to “John” as a personal contact, then connected to any relevant work & Organisation “Company A” that applies.“John” has a Public privacy setting, but “Company A” is Private. The email can still be seen by everyone at CBC (total 10 people) from the timeline for “John” but we want to limit the privacy to that of the Organisation for this email now that it has been connected to “Company A” (client team of 4).We have a few person contacts, that are connected to multiple Organisations. And these Organisations have different client teams, we would like to limit visibility by Organisation and still have the opt
sometimes a client will call me to ask about the status of his return. I click on the magnifying glass to search for the work. then i open the work. I see which tasks have been marked off and where the project is - then i think i should put this at the top of the queue to finish off today. There doesn’t seem to be any way to mark a task to put it in My Week as “working on now” while i’m in the project. Is that right?
Hi everyone, I’ve come across this a few times now and wondered if anyone has a better solution. When a recurring work is being reassigned to another person (from the Repeats Settings), the tasks in the repeating work still remain with the previous account manager, how can I make sure it gets updated on both places without having to open all work and scroll down through the tasks and reassign?
I use Volume of Emails in Triage as a way to monitor if my team is getting through their daily traige. I really push the message that triage should be cleared out daily.Being a leader who tries to lead by example, I make sure that my traige is cleared daily -- with the exception of vacation, I make an effort to clear daily.So I go to check the leaderboard today and I find that I’m leading the pack on the number of emails in triage...92 emails! I can count cleared emails and I know that at no poinit this week have I had 92 emails in a day or even during the entire week. How is this metric being calculated and when is the data polled to update the Insight?
Wondering what the status of the more full fledged API is? You all heard any news? Several months ago it sounded like this was something coming out really soon, but then nothing. The current Zapier integration is really too basic in triggers and actions to make use of more than it just being a contact database at this point.
