Add a request
Add a request from the Communications tab in AdvanceFlow to send to a client.
Provide request details
Create a main request and add related subrequests, which the client will see as separate tasks to complete. Simply fill in the blanks, including request title, due date, request/s, and client contact from AdvanceFlow.
Create a new contact
You can also add a new contact as needed. Simply provide the relevant information as shown here.
Either drag and drop or browse for files to add reference materials that show how a request should be completed.
Add and view client comments
Add a comment with your attached documents for additional context for your client, which initiates two-way communication between you. All comments sent or received will be visible here.
Client notification email
An email notification is sent to the client, which tells them your request has been created.
Your client can click the link, which takes them to a secure website to see which documents or tasks are requested.
The client responds to the request by uploading documents or asking clarifying questions using the comments feature.
Show the status of the request and send automatic email reminders as due dates approach.
Save to Workpapers
Once a file is uploaded in AdvanceFlow, you have the option to transfer the document to your audit Workpapers.
