Karbon Client tasks is great for us to get quicker and more consistence client responses for file request and feedback etc. As I am working with outside contractors service providers as well, which we currently using ClickUp to manage that part of the work, I am looking for way, if possible to for example to update or create a client task in Karbon based on certain triggers in ClickUP.Currently the Senior Client Manager, which is the user on Karbon, will manually trigger or update the Client task in Karbon, based on events/status in ClickUp.Don't know if this is something that is possible, or if possible just so complex to add that it is just better to do manual?
By the chance of the implementation of connection of Karbon to our DMS-sharepoint, I am re-thinking our folder structure. Due to we are full service provider, there are too many level of folders and I cannot think of a way to avoid that, below is a typical folder structure and level we currently have:First level folder: client name2nd level: service type (ie, bookkeeping, financial report, income tax return, ad-hoc advice, etc3rd level: no.of financial year ,ie FY2022, FY2023, etc.4the level: if the work is monthly, there will be month no., e.g., July, August and so on and so forth5th level: nature of document, ie, workpaper, client PBC, review documents etc. What I am thinking specifically:Anyway to avoid using the folder, but we can still file the documents in an organized way and can search and find files very quickly when needed. I thought of Metadata, however, don’t know exactly how that is implemented If still using folder structure, is there any other better structure, like t
In the accounting details of each client, it lists the industry. So for instance, I put in Brewery for some of them. Now, if I get an email that affects all my brewery clients - how do I find them? I went to the organization contacts and searched brewery and it didn’t pull up anyone that had that listed in the industry.
I added specific services that our company provides to each client under their Contact, Details tab, Accounting Details section on the scroll down, Basics tab and then in the Services section. Is there any way to select one of those services, then download a list of every contact that has that service in that section? Someone said they create a group of contacts for each service and can download from there. Brilliant solution but it means I have to reverse engineer that after I have already entered the information once. I’ll do it if I have to but was hoping not to loose the work already done. Thanks!

Is there a way to copy all tasks in a client request to excel (or word doc) other than going into each task and copying them one by one?A client is having trouble using Karbon and we need to request information from them ASAP, how can I copy the tasks in one shot to place in a regular email?
I really need you to fix how My Week handles recurring events in Google Calendar.If I edit a recurring event in Google Calendar, My Weeks creates a duplicate: the original and the edited version. This should not happen. If I delete an instance of a recurring event in My Week and select “All events,” i have to “Sign In With Google” again. This should not happen. If I delete the recurring event in Google Calendar, the My Week events—original and duplicated—remain. This should not happen. Once I’ve signed in with Google again, only the single occurrence—not the entire series—I clicked on is deleted. This should not happen, and it is—as far as I can tell—impossible to fully delete all instances of a recurring event.All these errors make for a very cluttered and frustrating My Week calendar integration experience. Something is off in the integration, and it has been for months now.
We currently have our staff assigned to organizations and then work items. We have to go into the organization and invite the staff member to each individual contact that is within that organization. Every time we have to swap a staff member to another organization, we feel like it’s so many steps. Is there a better way to be doing this? When we assign a staff member to the organization, shouldn’t it automatically assign them the contacts as well? There is a teams portion of Karbon that we are not using. Is this something that would accomplish that? Any input is greatly appreciated! I am going to watch more videos too but figured the Karbon community is the best place to get the answers we look for!
I have a workflow/transparency question for you all. We are an all remote team and we have on outsourced IT company. Currently, I am attempting to keep on top of everyone’s issue and make sure they are resolved. We have tried having one work item at attaching all conversations to one time line but information is getting lost. We are considering creating a work item for each tech issue with it’s own work type so that a single ticket can be followed by anyone on the team. I would be interested to hear how other companies track their outsourced IT Issues.
Hey All, I am hoping to gain insight into tracking team member productivity. Within Work insights, it is very work item oriented. We are very task focused and our work items pass from person to person based on the amount of steps necessary (tax prep, bookkeeping, advisory, etc) so it is not the best place to look to see how much a team member is or is not producing.We would like to see something that can show the amount of tasks completed over a period of time, how many of those were completed on time, and how many of them were re-assigned and completed by someone else. We would like to be able to sort by team member, by client, and by work type.We do not use time entries whatsoever because we found that it often became a time suck itself to make sure people were completing time sheets as well as them not being entirely accurate.Has anyone been successful inside of Karbon or using something else as a compliment to Karbon to track productivity through tasks?Thanks for any input. -Jarett
Q1: In Karbon, being an organization, we provide the access to all our staff to fill up their DAILY TIMESHEET at the end of the day, which helps us to identify how many hours are worked by each staff. Further, at current they are having access to the timesheet for the PREVIOUS DAY, so it’s been noticed that they are filling up the timesheet just before the month's end for SALARY purposes (instead of daily), so IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET an “AUTO LOCK” TIMESHEET ON a “DAILY BASIS” SO THEY CAN HAVE HABIT TO FILLUP TIMESHEET ON DAILY BASIS BEFORE THEY LEFT HOME? IN THIS CASE, THEY WON’T BE ABLE TO ADD TIMESHEET FOR THE PREVIOUS ANY DAY, THEY HAVE TO APPROACH TO THEIR REPORTING MANAGER TO GET ENTERED OR ELSE WILL BE COUNT AS LEAVE FOR THAT DAY. Q2: in Karbon, is it possible that as and when any staff is changing the status of any WORK to COMPLETED or sending for further REVIEW of WORK, then does Karbon have a system to “AUTO REMIND” users to add their TIMESHEET for completed work on the spot?
We’ve recently started tracking our business on a weekly scorecard.Our first draft leading measures:Past due work count for each: Bookkeeping Accounting Tax Unbilled WIP AR over 30 Days New Business PresentationsOur lagging measuresYoY Revenue Growth 365-day Revenue/staff Gross Profit % Net Profit %We have targets for each of these numbers. I’m curious what other firms are tracking. I don’t want to track too much. Smaller groups will eventually have their own scorecards to track details related to their work area.My premise states that if we are doing these activities (completing work on time, billing work timely, collecting on billed work, and offering proposals for new work), our lag measures will head the right direction, and if they aren’t, there’s a deeper issue we can explore (like pricing, efficiency, etc.).
Hello:Is there a way to print the TODO list without using the conventional browser print feature (it only prints what’s on the screen)? A way to export the list based on the filter to a PDF or EXCEL file would be helpful. Some of us need a sheet of paper to cross things off of! This would be helpful to have the feature in the WORK modulue as well. Thoughts??? js
Hi EveryoneI am new to Karbon and in the process of exploring and figuring things out. Is there a way to action internal comments into an email to send to a client? For example, if I am having a discussion with my Employer and we and going back and forth with information that I would then want to send an email to the client. With the information from the conversation as a thread below, so we can keep track of what we need to send.
When we finish a year-end, for example, we send the communication via HubSpot email template. We then have to manually go into the Karbon ‘sent’ items and add that email to the client workpiece and timeline. Is there a way to automate this that anyone has uncovered? It seems like in Zapier the only available options are: Trigger for when a new contact is created Trigger for when a contact is updated Trigger for when a new organization is created Trigger for when an organization contact is updatedBasically, the end state we are searching for is:Email is sent from HubSpot to client X email X is associated with client X + organization X, and is added to the organization timeline. We don’t mind if it isn’t added to the specific workpiece, but that would be an added bonus! Any help would be greatly appreciated.Are there any product updates in the works for email templates within Karbon, or some tracking so we can tell if task lists have been opened? Cheers,Sean
