Analyze accounts from checklists
As part of the engagement work, you will perform analyses on your client’s accounts. Smart Engagement includes checklist documents to help you keep track of the steps required for your work program.
Use the Analysis section for analytical review
Some checklists include an Analysis section. You can display it by selecting Analysis at the top of the page.
In the Analysis section, you can see information that is relevant to the procedures in the checklist. Tables display groups and accounts from the trial balance, while charts represent financial data graphically.
You can use the information in the Analysis section to complete checklists and work programs.
The most relevant financial information is displayed on the same page as its checklist, so you don't need to have the trial balance open in a separate tab or page.
The information is displayed graphically, to help you perform high-level analyses and to identify areas of the trial balance that you may need to investigate.
You can hide or display specific tables and charts by selecting the toggles () at the top of the Analysis section.
You can use the drop-down menu at the top of the section to switch the display between Preliminary balances and Final balances.
Each table and chart has a section where you can enter comments or other information.
