Why are my signoffs displaying as a different person?

The reason why your Audit Conclusions will display a different staff member’s name when you sign-off, is because the document you are signing off has been copied from an engagement file that is an older version than the file you are working on.

In order to resolve the issue, the file that you are copying from needs to be updated to the same version as the current file you are working on (see FAQ 89 to learn how to check the version of your file).

Follow these steps to resolve the issue:

  1. In your prior year file, do a year end close (Engagement | Year End Close).
  2. Update the version of the file created from the year end close (see FAQ 411 for update instructions).
  3. In your current year file, copy the document from the file just updated in Step 2 by using Copy Components (File | Copy Components).
