If you’ve already been enjoying the efficiency Canopy brings to task creation, we’re about to make your day: we’ve now added task templates! You’ll no longer have to create the same tasks over and over. Instead, you can create a workflow for a specific task—complete with description, dates, reminders, and subtasks. Simply save it as a template to use the next time that task comes around. Let’s take a look at the two major benefits you’ll get from this update.
As an accountant, you have tons of recurring tasks that come around at the same time each year. For example, quarterly due dates for payroll. Let’s say you have 20 clients you perform payroll services for. Rather than recreating those same payroll tasks for each client, you can now set up the task once, save it as a template, and apply it to every payroll task you have for every client. You can put the time you save toward more meaningful work.
Another benefit of task templates is that a manager can set up the workflow for specific tasks and assign them to other employees. If there are certain steps you’d like followed every time a task is performed, you could make those steps a template. That template can then be applied to the task no matter which person in the practice is working on it. This will help ensure that tasks are being completed correctly and consistently.
Instead of setting up workflows for each task and every employee, why not just apply a ready-to-go template and be about your day? There’s enough tedious, repetitive work involved in being an accountant—setting up your workflow shouldn’t be part of it.
