How to set up work using a custom Assignment.

There will be occasions when you will want to create a custom assignment because existing assignment templates do not describe the work that is required for a client.

An assignment template represents professional services that are used repeatedly by the practice for different clients.

An assignment represents professional services carried out by the practice for clients, such as:

  • Compliance
  • Tax
  • Accounting
  • Financial Planning

When you create a custom assignment it will only be available for the client you are setting it up for. To make it available for use with other clients, set it up as an assignment template.

  1. Find the Client. The Client tab appears.

  1. Click the Assignments tab.
