Calendar Integration question
Hi, I see on the Karbon release notes that Calendar Integration has launched?But I can;t see anywhere in myweek to ‘Connect to Calendat’It takes less than 30 seconds to set up the integration. Simply navigate to My Week and click on ‘Connect calendar’ and sign in to your calendar provider. Am I just jumping the gun or do I have to do anything to activate this feature?Thanks
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?
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
🌡️ 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
Need tips on how you handle assigning staff to certain Organizations and Work Items
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!
Client request - Copy list of tasks to excel
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?
Is it possible to assign to a Team instead of just to a Colleague?
Is it possible to assign to a Team instead of just to a Colleague? We have a few different Teams, for a mix of Client Teams, Department Teams etc. and it would be helpful if emails or tasks could be assigned to the Team as a whole instead of the individual (to start). This process happens already in some cases using the Team Tag. However, would work better with our processes if tasks or Work could be assigned to a Team (think repeat work/task creation) then can be assigned to the individual from here.
How Do I Create a Webhook?
I'm familiar a bit with API, but I never worked with webhooks, can any share instructions on how to create one?Here is what I want to do, we have a database (Google sheet & Airtable) with all our clients, and it's intergraded with Poser BI, where we have multiple dashboards in Power BI. Currently, I need to update the database manually, and I'm looking to automate this through a webhook.Thank you

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
Creating usable Standard Operating Procedures and Checklists in Karbon
I am training new team members so our standard operating procedures are quite detailed. For management accounts or year-end - I want them to run through a detailed checklist like so…. I have one test job open for management accounts and of course every task appears in my ToDo list which is horrifically overwhelming with just one job open!! I've created each of these checks as subtasks hoping they would not appear in the Work List but here they are! It will be unworkable if I roll this out. But if I set all the steps out in the notes - the person doing the job has nothing to check off and I have no way of knowing if they've considered every step without micromanaging the work.The only solution I can think of is to change the colour of the text of the steps actioned. But the visibility of that is lost when you come out of the task. I can of course opt for a much smaller list of headline tasks which would be much less overwhelming but then where do you put the detail of the SOP in a
Unsuccessfully trying to add work schedule using the API
issueI get 4005 (when I modify the structure) or 5001 (when I run according to documentation) when trying to add a work schedule via POST request.detailsThe documentation seems a little light (didn’t include a few fields I thought would be necessary), and I’m getting an internal server error whenever I try to add a work schedule.I performed a GET request on an existing work schedule I want to repeat. I am using the values from that get to populate my template POST request.troubleshootingAfter my first attempts didn’t work, I added WorkItemTitleDisplayText and AssigneeUserKey. They are not added in the documentation, but perhaps they must be added/updated via PUT once the schedule creates. I noticed that the GET request returns a JSON element as a string. I de-escaped it to see if the API expected JSON instead of a string coming back, but I got a 4005 error. The offset integer for the variable portion was passed as a string in the GET request but as an integer in the text portion, so I

What is your client onboarding process?
We are looking at improving our client onboarding process - high level of the process below.Currently, we launch a couple of onboarding work items and have triggers within that process to create work for recurring services as we are ready to begin that part of the engagement. The reason we do multiple work items is because multiple teams are involved and some of the work actually happens concurrently.What have you done within Karbon regarding your onboarding that has worked well for your team?
