WorkNew ‘In Status’ columnIf your firm uses the First In, First Out (FIFO) or Last In, First Out (LIFO) for production planning and processing, being able to sort work items based on when their workflow status changed is essential for knowing what to action next.To enable this, a new column called 'In Status' has been added to the Work List. When a work item changes into a new status (including creation), the duration it has been in that particular status will be included in the work export (date and time). Items without a status change date will always be at the bottom, regardless of sort direction.Client PortalEntities with the same emailFor clients that manage multiple entities with the same email address, we have added the client name to the request. This increases transparency over who the work belongs to, so they know what to action and for which entity. This will appear on both the magic link view as well as the logged-in view.SettingsPermissions page is easier to navigateThe pe
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
Looking for some My Week process suggestions! We are pretty new to My Week, so as we start using it we’re encountering scenarios we hadn’t anticipated!Key points of our processes:The Work Assignee for us stays consistent through the whole process of completing the piece of work Each piece of work generally has three people involved - a preparer, a reviewer, and a final senior review before the work is delivered to the client Some types of work will have a couple of touch points for the preparer and reviewer Current ownership of work is based on the status (e.g. Initial Preparation means the work is currently with the Preparer, when the status changes to Client Blocker it’s owned by our client success team to follow up on etc.)Problem:Once a preparer has completed their first set of tasks, it makes sense for them to move the card into the Done bucket, but based on this page, a change in Status is not a trigger for a card to move back out of Done and into This Week. This means that if th
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
question for you Karbon and Sureprep users: sometimes clients will send me an email with information for their tax return. Currently i drag and drop that email into the Sureprep binder. With Karbon, i seem to have lost that ability to easily add the email to a Sureprep binder. I’m wondering if anyone has a way to handle things like this.

Skip Ahead:Introduction Examples Add a template-based work item to a list of clients Basic tools for running API requests (Python) IntroductionPlay along at GitHub: https://github.com/dchrm/human-accounting-mastermindThere are certain things in Karbon that I cannot automate the way I want, so I found that the API has worked in many cases. I’m curious how you are using the API. What problems are you solving? I’ll be sharing my implementations here and I welcome anyone to join and share theirs as well. I’ll edit this post with your examples so that we can start to build a repository of real-world DIY API implementations.ExamplesAdd a template-based work item to a list of clientsOur firm is focused on continuous improvement, so we quickly learned that annual recurring work items carry forward with them the poor layout of the year before. We are continually updating our templates with new learning, but our recurring work was missing out on the new way we were approaching work. We d

Hey Everyone, Our firm is having some difficulty determining where we should be looking to see outstanding work for our team. We are using some iteration of To-Do, My Week, and Work as each one of them some benefits as well as their shortfalls. To-DoThis is what we have everyone use as it has the ability to list all tasks at a granular level. Our work item set up isn’t task heavy. Anything that can be done in one sitting is listed as one task with multiple steps in the description. What we do not like about To-Do is that you cannot get a total time budget allocation for all tasks in a given time period nor is it guaranteed that they will all show up on the client profile as work completed for a client. Example would be small tasks that were assigned from emails and not attached to a work item are not visible as items that were completed for a client when we are assessing how much out of scope work we do for a client throughout the year. My Week We have not yet been confident enough in
it's great to see growing integration with g suite apps… when will we see the ability to export directly to google sheets & docs? We use g suite for everything as you’re killing me with the copy and paste into sheets to share with my team…
Hi all, I am hoping that it is possible (or at least on the roadmap it will be possible) to amend a completion date to the day it was actually completed, even it it’s marked off after the event. I have an employee who is getting used to changing statuses as we go, and to be honest, I sometimes forget myself. However I can usually tell from items on the timeline of a piece of work when it was completed. If I mark things as complete in my regular cleanup of work, it gives a misleading picture of how long it takes to go through the various stages. Thanks.
For Contact Sync I have the following products that I would like to all sync. I can use Zapier if needed, but I doubt that is the case. I believe the order for connecting the products to avoid duplicates etc. is:Connect Lacerte Tax (I use IPM) Connect QBO (just QBO not time) Connect Ignition Stay away from Google Contact Sync unless that is just doable for the My Contacts section.Just setting up now, so want to think twice and sync once:) ~Tom
While I see that clients can choose to login to the portal and see all requests. I have several clients who want to see items in a folder structure. For example, they login and they can click on 2021, see the tasks that were performed and also just files (without having to drill down on requests). So, let's say I send the client a draft 1040 as a client task asking them to review. My clients would like to see the tax returns by year when they are in the portal. 2019, 2020 etc. I know this is much more like a ShareFile structure, but i gotta give the people what they want:)

Karbon Practice Intelligence PowerBI workbookAnalyze budget to plan for inefficienciesWe’ve added another workbook to Practice Intelligence. The budget workbook allows you to perform a detailed analysis and look at the budget retrospectively. Have visibility and answer critical questions about potential reasons that actual time/cost are over the budgeted amounts, view active work items that are already over budget to look for efficiencies, and plan accordingly. Use filters for work types, team members, and work item status directly in Karbon to explore detailed information and understand which clients are over (or close to going over) budget.
We, at Svihla & Associates CPA have noticed that when we receive attachments in an email, sometimes they are at the bottom of the feed and sometimes they are at the top. Is this normal? We also noticed that when we have a thread of back and forth emails, they are never in the order in which they are sent or received. They are all jumbled up.It would make things so much easier if the attachments were always in the same place and if email were received and read in the order in which they were sent. (does that make sense?)
