Best practices for employee profile and access changes?
Hello Karbon community! I’m curious what your best practices when employee roles change and you need to transfer profiles to another. How do you do this without losing data. Some of our roles are tied to more general named emails for said department. However sometimes this changes. We also use aliases as well, but I’m still unsure if this is best practice for managing the firm’s Karbon instance.
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…)
Work Creation - Bulk Change Create Work
Is it possible to perform a bulk change to the Create Work field in repeating work items? For example, I have 400+ work items that will be triggered into creation on 10/15 as the create work is currently set to 6 months before work start date. I would like to bulk change this to 3 Months before work start date (ideally 4 or 5, however not a choice available).Or is this something that could only be done on the back-end by Karbon support?t/y
Sorting by Status in Work View
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?
Client Secure Uploads
I am trying to prevent clients from uploading items to my old portal. However, they often times need a secure way to send me a file that has nothing to do with a Work item or a Client Request. The Karbon Portal does not have a section for clients to upload. What have you all found as the best fix?Bottom line is, I do not want clients doing things outside my Karbon EcoSystem. :)
Budgets in Repeats
If a work item is created and you forget to add the budget before setting up the repeat period, why won’t Karbon update the budget when you edit the repeat? I’m finding that whenever I go to edit to add the budget estimate, it will not carry over. The only thing that carries over is time worked on the task. Any suggestions? What am I doing wrong if so? Thanks so much!Amanda Lampi
karbon and zapier
why can’t i get a zap to pull a project from Karbon? If i create a project in Karbon, there is no way to run a zap to pull that data from Karbon and then create an external list in Excel or some other program of all projects that i have.more and more i’m getting very frustrated with karbon.
Triage Search Not Working
Is anyone else having issues where searching for a work item in triage (e.g., trying to attach an email thread to a work item) doesn’t work? Most of the time I try to add an email to a work item the item doesn’t show up -- I just get a blank search area.I reached out to support and they acknowledged this is a problem on their end, but it’s been 3 weeks now and no resolution. This is crippling the highest value tool Karbon has to offer.As you can see, it’s not returning a ‘no results found for…’ message, rather, I get this:[Karbon Search Error]
Is there a way to bulk-assign new employee previously-created work?
I’ve just brought on a new tax preparer and have him set up in Karbon. However, I have about 100+ clients that have already signed engagement letters via Ignition and have those work templates already created with me as the preparer. Is there a way to quickly bulk assign a bunch of them to him? (Updating the work template should fix it going forward, but looking to avoid manually assigning each client to him)
🌡️ Temperature check: Social Networks in 2023
Hi Everyone, George from Karbon here 👋.I’m conducting a little survey on how people are feeling about social networking - especially twitter and their plans for tweeting in 2023. If you have an account. I’d appreciate a vote in the 👉 poll 👈 If not, I’d still be interested to hear you take on the state of social networking, how twitter’s acquisition affects your plans (if at all) and what you’re planning for 2023 in the social space.All the best.G
Can I Delete Archived Emails in Outlook
I have close to 200,000 cleared emails now! My Outlook mailbox is starting to get full and now I have a question I never thought I would have to worry about. If I delete the emails from the Archive folder in Outlook do I lose them in Karbon?If so, what is the fix to lower my usage in Outlook?
Client tasks - notifications
Hi AllWith Client Tasks - we send out annual questions to clients for preparation of their financial statements and tax returns. We have a Client Task section with individual tasks for responses, download/upload files etc.The Assignee for the Work is the Accountant. But we send the Client Tasks from me (Practice Manager)When the client responds to each individual task both myself and the accountant get triage notifications. This morning each of us has 10+ notifications in triage for this one client/work item. Hugely distracting.Would be better if only one person got the notifications (either assignee or sender, not both) and maybe to have option to choose which person for each client task section? Would be even better if we didn’t get notifications on each individual task within the section, but a summary or daily update on the client task section overall (i.e. if client has updated a task during a 24 hour period, then the daily notification shows what has changed on that task or tas
I currently use to-dos mainly to track email follow up, as there is no time and billing for to-dos. That leads me to how to best setup ad-hoc work. For example, client emails me and want me to find an old lease document. I want to bill for this, so it will have to be a work item. Do people recommend:Using an ad-hoc project with no tasks to track the work and remember to bill at that end of the work, or Do you have a generic work item where there are vanilla type tasks may not always be on point, but they help keep work on track.Thank, Tom
