Tips for setting up your Karbon settings for your practice
Spend time upfront to define your settings to match what and how your company operates (or needs to operate). By defining this at the start, you’ll be able to set the foundation on how your team will operate in the future
Add to, and edit when needed. Most companies add/edit work templates progressively over time to systemize & standardize their service offerings. As your company evolves, your contact types, work types, and workflow statuses will evolve as well. Periodically review and modify these as needed
Don’t underestimate the importance of workflow statuses. Take the time to think about how these should be defined across all the work your company performs. Use this workflow custom statuses worksheet to help plan and build your company's workflow statuses
Take notice of the numbers that are beside each category heading. They let you know the number of items that exist in each section. This helps you look at a glance of how much you have added or tailored, and where you need to spend time to further customize Karbon to work with your company's processes
Keep in mind that you're only able to access the Settings if you are a Karbon admin user. If you are not a Karbon admin and need to be, please reach out to one of the Karbon admin users in your practice and they can grant you access.
