Results and Sign Offs


Results of the procedure should be documented and signed off when completed. Note that if a procedure has been signed off, the sign off check box must be unchecked prior to editing any results.

Your firm has the option on how procedure results are completed. Their choice will dictate how your responses will be completed.

Your firm may have elected to have all responses completed at one time. When your firm sets certain responses, an option allows you to automatically populate all responses with the same response for all procedures that appear beneath the selection. For example if selected at a sub procedure level, all sub procedures are completed with the same response. If selected at a title level, all procedures below that title are completed with the same response.

Your firm also has the option to automatically create an issue when any specific explanation option is selected in an engagement. The firm can default the type of issue automatically created and the default issue date. Issues created are available in the Issues area and transferred to the Partner and Manager Summary report.

Sign offs

Your firm has made the choice to set if they want the procedure automatically signed off and dated at one time in the work program. When selected by your firm, the sign off is completed automatically as soon as an explanation is selected. If your firm has not selected this option, you will be required to sign off procedures and sub-procedures individually.

For further information on the different types of responses, please refer to Completion Responses. Note that it is the firm's decision on customizing these settings.
