Frequently Asked Questions

How do I set up Karbon’s Client Portal?

Can I use my own branding in Karbon’s Client Portal?
Yes. In Karbon, go to Settings > Client Portal > Theming and add your logo.
What can my clients see when they log in to the Client Portal?
The Client Portal provides clients with a full view and history of their requests, documents and communication. They will see up to 1,000 work items that have open requests for them to complete, as well as view the last 1,000 completed work items they had client requests on.
How does my client access the Client Portal?
They simply access your client portal via the link that you share with them by email or include on your website.
How do my clients log in to the Client Portal?
The Client Portal is accessed through a secure magic link, which is a unique URL generated every time a client request is sent. When a client accesses the tasks sent to them, the link in the email is then associated with that device. This means that client requests are only accessible from that device.
Are magic links and the Client Portal software secure?
Yes. Karbon takes our responsibility for our customers’ and their clients’ data security seriously. The Karbon Client Portal is a Karbon platform feature that allows trusted advisors to engage with their clients and share information in a manner that is more secure than email. For more information, refer to the Client Portal security statement.
