The Documents page (SE)
While working on your SE file, you will complete many work programs, create letters, and submit client requests. All of the documents involved are displayed on the Documents page.
Documents are grouped by the engagement stage they are completed in. Beside each of these high-level groupings a progress meter displays how much work has been completed for each stage as a percentage. Completion percentage is determined by how many documents have been reviewed and signed off.
Within these high-level groupings, documents are also organized into folders. Folder names have a different font color, and you can select the folder name to hide or display all of the documents under it.
Documents are displayed contextually: as you enter information in the planning documents, other documents relevant to your file will be added to the Documents page.
Create or upload a new document
To add a document to the client file, select the Add Document icon () beside the high-level grouping. This button is also displayed when you hover over folders, enabling and you to add documents directly to the proper folder.
You can choose one of the following options:
Create a new document - choose one of the built-in document types to add it to your client file. You can also create new folders to organize your documents page, or create placeholder documents to represent files that you will add later in the engagement.
Upload a file - upload a file from your computer to the engagement file.
Copy a file from Cloud - add a copy of a file from the client entity in Cloud to the engagement file.
