August 2020 Release Notes

 Release Date: August 20, 2020

See only the clients assigned to you!

SmartVault is launching the Assign Employees feature, offering you the ability to see only the clients you want or need to manage.



What is new?


All these features are for SmartVault plans: Tax Prep, Accounting, and SmartVault for Business 2020.

Assign Employees

The feature allows any SmartVault user to filter, receive notifications, and manage their subset of clients.

With this feature, we are expanding the options of who can be an assigned user.

  • Assign specific clients to Account Administrators and Employees.
  • Non-Clients and Non-Guests will also appear as Available employees in the Assign employees dialog; hence they can be assigned as Firm Manager or Firm Employee.


Assigned employees can only see and manage the folders and client lists of their assigned clients.

As an administrator or account employee, you can use My Clients filter to see only those clients you want and need to manage.

  • Dashboard


  • Connected Desktop
