What your client sees when you send them Client Tasks

When you use Client Tasks, your clients will receive emails outlining the information you need them to provide. This article outlines exactly what your clients will see when you assign and send them Tasks. Please note, for communication with your clients, Client Tasks are referred to as a checklist.

Remember, if at any stage you'd like to see the Client Task emails that are being sent to a client, simply look on their Contact Timeline.

1. First email

When Client Tasks are first sent, your clients will receive this email. Note, the email sender will be the Work owner (if automatically scheduled) or the team member who clicks Send tasks now, your practice name will appear in place of 'Karbon Team', and your Work name will appear in place of 'End of month accounting'.

2. Please choose a PIN

The first time your client accesses their Tasks, they'll see this page inviting them to choose a 4-digit PIN. In this example, if you have added a practice logo in Karbon, this will appear in place of the top Karbon logo.
