Once you've created or joined your firm, you'll be brought to the Firm Dashboard within Cimplico Workpapers.

Cimplico Workpapers is a firm workpapers solution. But what does a "firm solution" mean? While you may do a workpaper for an entity, how do you manage all your entities? How do you group your entities so they can share data? How do you manage your various users and integrations? Firm Management is the answer!

Firm management layer

Firm Management within Cimplico Workpapers is a layer that sits above the workpaper portion of the application that allows you to manage:

  • Groups

  • Entities

  • Workpapers

  • Your User Profile

  • Procedure Templates (Managers & Admin only)

  • Checklist Templates (Managers & Admin only)

  • Users (Managers & Admin only)

  • Integrations (Managers & Admin only)

  • Settings (Admin only)

At the Firm Management level, users can:

  • See a dashboard summarising the past performance and current work across the firm

  • Manage the various clients and configurations to organise

  • Simplify the workpaper preparation process,

Managers can:

  • Manage users,

  • Configure firm integrations

  • Configure some firm settings

Admins can:

  • Configure all firm settings

  • Configure billing & subscription settings

For this article, we'll briefly touch on the aspects of firm management that all users can access: Dashboard, Groups, Entities, Workpapers, and Profile.

Firm Dashboard

Firm dashbord

By default, you'll land on the Firm Dashboard showing you two sections:

  1. All work: A summary of the performance of completed workpapers

  2. Current work: Quick stats on current work, with quick links to overdue work to assist with triaging and addressing blocked jobs

You can also utilise filters to scope workpaper data for particular groups, entities, and users! Visit this link, Using search, sort, and filter to learn more about our advanced filtering mechanics.


Groups Screen

Here, you can browse the current groups, search, sort, filter, and add new groups.

When you click on a group, you can view more details, such as the group entities, workpapers, integrations and settings.

Group overview

We'll cover groups in more detail in Creating Groups.


Similarly to the Groups screen, the Entities screen lets you browse the current entities, search, sort, filter, and add new entities.

Entities screen

Similarly to groups, you can click an entity name to see more detail on the entity, such as the entity type, active workpapers, integrations and settings.

Entity overview

We'll cover entities in more detail in Creating Entities.


Similarly to the Groups and Entities screen, the Workpapers screen lets you browse active and completed/archived workpapers, search, sort, filter, and add new workpapers.

Workpapers screen

Clicking a workpaper's name will launch into the workpaper view, which will be covered in detail in the Creation to Completion set of lessons.


In the top right corner, you will see your initials. This is how you access your profile to view/update your personal information, change your avatar, view your active work, and logout.

Profile dropdown

Profile screen

From the Active Workpapers tab, you can see the workpapers you're assigned to and their progress. You can then launch into a workpaper by clicking the name.
