Add visibility settings in checklists

You can set visibility conditions for groups, subgroups, procedure or subprocedures so that your checklist only displays content that is relevant for the engagement. For example, if a trial balance group balance is immaterial, you can hide the related group of procedures.

Note: If you want to add visibility settings for a checklist in the firm template, you must have the Settings Admin role or similar to access the firm template. See Manage the firm template for more information.
