Collect information from the client
During the course of your engagement, you need to collaborate with clients to request and receive information and documents via Queries.
Queries (or query documents) in CaseWare Audit International have the letter "Q" appended to the document number.
Note: The queries included in the Documents page in your engagement file depend on your response to the level of online collaboration question in the A100 Optimizer. If you have responded High, then the A345Q Overall client information request document is available. If you have responded Limited, then the C105Q document is available.
If you want to add guidance to an item, select Comment, enter the desired text and select Comment.
Here is a summary of the staff-client collaboration workflow using queries.
To send a query:
From the top-right of the page, select Send. The Open Query dialog displays.
Enter a Query Due Date, select an Assignee, enter a message in the Email Body and select OK.
An email is automatically sent to the assignee, and the status of the document changes to Awaiting response.
The assigned contacts email includes a link to the query.
Contacts select the link to open the document and start responding to the requests. Once done, contacts select Responded to mark an item as responded.
