FloQast is able to further centralize evidence of Control execution by linking your Checklist or Reconciliation tasks in your other FloQast Workflows to your Controls.
In-line editing (linking Checklists and Reconciliations): Admins and Managers can hover over any Checklist item or Reconciliation and click on the Gear Symbol. The in-line edit window will pop open and you can add your Controls using the Controls field. This will be an entire list of active Controls showing the Control ID, Control Name, and if it is a Key or Non-Key Control.
Once added, you will be able to view the Control right below the Checklist or Reconciliation. You can click on the Control ID caret in blue to expand the Control to view the Title and Description.
Bulk Upload (Checklists): To link Controls to Checklist items through a bulk upload, you will navigate to the Checklist tab within the Greater Admin Settings. From there, you will click Export Checklist and your Checklist template will download in your downloads folder and an additional copy will be saved in the ‘Checklist Template’ folder within the Entity folder in your Cloud Storage. Once you are done making your changes, you can click ‘Add Revised Checklist’ to upload the document and then click Save Changes on the right to apply your changes to the relevant period.
Within the Checklist Template, you will see there is a new column labeled ‘Controls’ where you can add your Control IDs in bulk to link to the Checklist item. Multiple controls can be linked to a checklist item by using a semicolon to separate Control IDs. (Note: When linking multiple controls, separate each control with a semicolon).
Once you link any Checklists or Reconciliations to your Controls, they will show up under each Control by using the caret to the Left of the Control ID or by clicking the linked number of checklists and reconciliations in the “Sign-off Statuses” column.
