Based on recent questions we have received from Agile Audit customers, we have developed this explanatory FAQ on the use of the current mapping structure in Agile Audit.
The Mapping structure included in version 1 was designed to be condensed and to align with the common primary statement line items only. As a result, we are aware that some firms have added in their own additional groups.
Please be advised that we will be disabling the feature to add in custom groups in the coming weeks (we will advise you of an exact date when this is confirmed), based on feedback received from both customers and CaseWare International.
There are 2 key limitations when adding in custom groups:
- Can’t delete groups once they are created
- Can’t have firm-created groups flow to Analysis areas in checklist
We are currently revising our mapping structure, with a focus on developing a consistent one that can be used across all CW ANZ Cloud-based apps (e.g. Agile Audit, Cloud Finanicials, AnalyticsAI, etc.)
This new structure will be far more detailed, and therefore, we expect it will address the reason firms have been customising the mapping structure.
Action required by firms:
To ensure that there is minimal or no impact to your existing files, we strongly recommend that firms stop adding custom groups, and wait for the release of our revised mapping structure in early 2021.
The review and amendment of the current Agile Audit mapping structure is a current project for us, and we expect to complete early in the New Year. We will be sending out an update email prior to the release of the new mapping structure, so we recommend you inform your firm’s primary contact to keep an eye out for such an email.
If you have any questions or feedback that you want to share regarding the mapping structure, please share this with our customer support team via contact details below.
