Review Tools and Guidance (SE)
Display guidance for a procedure
In an engagement file, you will typically record your engagement work in documents called checklists. Each checklist includes a series of tasks to guide you through the engagement work, and as you perform each task, you can enter responses or data and sign off on the task.
Each item in a checklist is called a procedure. Procedures are tasks you’ll need to complete or information you’ll need to gather. They often include fields for you to enter information or conclusions. You can display guidance for these procedures on the left panel.
To display guidance for a procedure:
Select the light bulb icon () located beside certain procedures to display guidance for them on the left panel. This guidance may present information that helps you to complete the procedure or it may describe the procedure’s outcome.
Review prepared documents with review tools
On the left pane you can access review tools that make it easier to review an engagement. Review tools are available in checklists, letters and financial statements.
Review tools apply visual markup to the document, making potential issues stand out on the page so you can complete your review more quickly.
To review a prepared document:
At the top right of the document, select the Review icon ().
You can display different review content by selecting the appropriate checkboxes in the left pane. You can filter the review areas to highlight content types. Available items depend on your specific product and the document you are viewing.
Review tools display in the left panel.
