Use CaseWare Time to assess quality

Use CaseWare Q to assess quality
This section describes functionality only available with CaseWare Audit.
Q contains built-in gadgets that provide visualizations to compare your engagements progress and profitability and risk response.
For more information on dashboards, see Viewing Engagement Overall Status for more.
If you are using the CaseWare Audit template, you can use CaseWare Q to automatically feed when deliverables are completed from Working Papers to the Cloud. CaseWare Q has a user friendly interface that displays how many due deliverables are overdue and due this week.
Selecting the counter will provide you more information on which deliverables are overdue or due this week.
With Q-enabled files, you get a more comprehensive view of your engagement file. Opening the Engagement file details from the Files page, you can obtain important metrics to ensure you are providing efficient and effective engagements.
Instead of adding the deliverables in as tasks, CaseWare Q provides the most common audit deliverables from our groundbreaking Audit template. When the Deliverable is signed-off as completed and reviewed in Working Papers, the Deliverable is automatically marked as complete. Any deliverable that is overdue will display in red.
