I know there’s probably a ton of HTML weirdness going on under the hood that I won’t even pretend to know about, but the size of the window when reading an email in Triage seems inconsistent and unpredictable, especially with emails that have large images.The window will expand to accommodate the entire image, then shrink back down to the height of maybe 8–10 text lines, which feels cramped.Other emails, usually newsletters with many paragraphs of text, will expand to scroll several pages and never shrink back down. I have to scroll all the way back up to reach the controls to clear or otherwise manage the email.As far as I can tell, there’s no way to expand or contract the window or predict when one email window will expand or contract. This can make managing Triage, especially from non-contacts, a bit of an unwelcome adventure.
We are having an issue with clients who are ticking off items on their checklist and then unticking them. The issue is the ticking off initially sets our automators to mark the work item as ready to start and the next internal task as ready to start.When client unticks the box the work still sits on Ready to Start instead of the status reverting back.I am having to check all our work at Ready to Start to see if the clients have done this (we have had 4 clients do this today upon sending of the checklists for their Activity Statement work.Not sure if anyone else has this issue with clients?
Considering changing from Canopy. How does the document management work with client portal? Is this worth changing to from Canopy? I am only on the trial version and the one thing I do not like is that there is no folder options to sort files. I want to make sure if I make the investment its worth it. Has anyone else changed from canopy?
Hi,We are switching over to Karbon at present. I am just wondering how those using XPM for billing handle Karbon? Do you still set up a job in XPM? If so then there are two jobs on hand - one in Karbon and the other in XPM? How do you then bill the client? What is “Best Practice”?Still a bit confused here.Thanks
For semi-monthly and monthly payroll jobs that are due X number of days before the end of the month (depending on how they are processed, ie: Gusto, ADP) how are you working with Karbon’s limited settings to have accurate due dates so that Payrolls are not missed?Since the end of the month fluctuates (28/29/30/31) and the payrolls are due X number of days before the end of the month + avoiding weekends, there is not an accurate way to set up these types of Payroll jobs in Karbon so that the due dates are an accurate reflection of when the Payroll actually needs to be processed. This is causing us to occasionally miss payrolls, especially when our team has to fill in for other team members who are out and when they are not familiar with when the clients payroll needs to be run.What are your workarounds for recurring jobs that are due at/near the end of the month, but aren’t always due on the same day of the month? Aside from setting up each Payroll job individually (non-recurring) or ad
Let me start by saying that I love Karbon… I’m constantly defending it while having discussions with my team, but with the immense growth we’ve experienced during the past couple years it’s getting more and more difficult to plan adequately. At the moment we’re very “project based” with our work, that means tax returns, monthly bookkeeping, attest, one-off projects, monthly CFO work is all contained within its own project, from start to finish. The issue we’re running into now, is that multiple team members may have a function within one project. Those functions may overlap or be staggered in time. As an example, a tax return project may have time inputs of: scanning - 30 minutes, preparing - 1 hour, reviewing - 30 minutes, assembling - 15 minutes, etc.. Now we could budget based on roles at the time we create the project, but that only leaves us with a view of the overall time necessary by the statutory deadline, it doesn’t help while trying to capacity plan on a daily, or weekly bas
Hi all! Our firm has been acquiring recent clients who need their books cleaned up quite a bit. We’re in the process of developing an accounting analysis process and am having a somewhat difficult time finding resources/inspiration. Does anyone have some thoughts/resources they’d like to share? Has anyone created their own account analysis template through Karbon?
Has anyone implemented shared mailboxes in Karbon, even in a partial way?I know this is likely to be a new feature in a future release of Karbon but shared mailboxes are such an important part of our business processes that I really need to try and do something to include communications to and from shared mailboxes in our Karbon workflows now.So, for example I have created a Karbon account for one of our shared mailboxes, but when it is specified as the email address in the “From: Other Colleague” section of the sending settings of the client task the email appears to come from the assignee not the shared mailbox.
HiI was told during my Karbon template training not to mix tasks for different roles within the same section. Why is this?Some of our processes involve two colleagues working on one job at the same time, with the tasks often alternated between them. Each task is placed in its own section because the role has changed, resulting in a template with 50 or 60 sections, and each section contains one task. The template is therefore unwieldy and difficult to use. Why can't I create a single section with tasks for two different roles? It is possible to assign the work to a senior colleague in order to avoid confusion about ownership or accountability. Thanks!!!Best RegardsJessica Layson
OH I can’t believe I can’t figure this out. I setup a monthly task from a template called give it a name of “TPT Filing April 2022” The dates are May 1 to May 20When I do the repeating I see the following: I select repeating period so it looks like this:But the repeat preview always shows “TPT Filing June 2022” with due dates in June. The next one should be May I don’t know how to fix this?Can anyone help?I am sure this is easy :)
Hello.I’m trying to work out why work items are appearing in my My Week, when I have no involvement. I understand that when you re-assign all your tasks that you still remain on the ‘Work team’, but even if I remove myself from work team, the work still appears in my My Week.There are work items in my My Week that I have never had any tasks or emails assigned to me. The only way I can think I was involved as someone tagging me in a comment.Am I doing something wrong?
I am trying to set up an automator that goes like this:If all the tasks in the section are above have the status completed, then update the status of tasks in this section to Cancelled.I have ensured that the work type settings have Cancelled selected as a task status, as below:But when I go to set up this automator in the work template, Cancelled is still not an option. Can anybody help with this?
I’d be curious to know what others “Email Added to Contact” percent is within the Karbon Email Insights feature. I just turned it on to trial it and see how it works was shown this stat. I feel like it’s really low… I showed you mine… now you show me yours 😂
Does anyone know best practice for downloading client uploads on tasks. For example if a client uploads 6 separate image files of bank statements, I cannot drag and drop them, nor can I choose a ‘download all’ function like I can in an email.Is there a workaround or a planned upgrade to Karbon to fix this?
Has anyone come up with a standard way to dictate when John & Jane Doe organizations are created? We have a few clients that are divorced (but where we’d still want to keep that information and former spouse ready and available) and others that alternate between MFJ and MFS yearly depending on tax savings. Any tips?
Occasionally we send out mass emails to groups of clients, using bcc functionality in Gmail. However, we’ve found that when clients respond, Karbon groups all of those responses together in a single message in Triage rather than separating them by client. They way that Triage handles these messages makes it confusing to see who is responding to the message and limits what you can do with the message after opening it. I’m curious if others have experienced this issue and how you work around it?
