Are you using Excel to keep track of progress and task completion for your engagements? Or, are you using a sophisticated engagement management app that takes too much time or requires too much information to keep your task completion progress up to date? Worst of all, are you relying primarily on email communications to keep track of your engagement task completion progress? If any of these scenarios apply to your practice, this course will show you a better way to manage engagements from simple 1040 tax preparation to comprehensive audits. The Microsoft 365 Planner app, which you are likely already paying for as part of your Microsoft 365 subscription, provides a comprehensive, yet simple solution for all of your client engagements and internal projects.
