Signoff Types screen

Alerts and notices

You can set up signoff types to assign to staff members working in an engagement. This provides a convenient method to track the status of a workpaper at any phase in the engagement process. Signoffs can be added to workpapers in the Engagement Binders Tree and the Workpapers List portlets of the View > Workpapers Dashboard.

Choose Setup > Firm Information > Signoff Types.
