Money, Technical Stuff, and a Comment Box: This Is the New Open Items

open items

Attention, friends and accountants — we have a little more news to share. Yesterday we announced our partnership with FloQast, and alluded to an enhanced Open Items. I wasn’t joking; we have made some enhancements and improvements to your favorite accounting forum on the whole wide internet.

I’ll take just a few minutes of your time to explain what’s new.

Get your nerd on — First, we’ve added three technical topics: Audit, Financial Reporting, and Tax. These channels are perfect for you to submit questions about issues you’re encountering at work, or if you just want to offer a hot take on the latest developments from the FASB, IRS, PCAOB, or whatever alphabet soup rulemaker you’re situated under.

Compensation — Summer and compensation season are over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t yak about money whenever you like. The Compensation channel will house all your questions and missives about salary, bonuses, worthless stock options, and more all year long.

Meta — We’ve undergone a lot of changes this year, and it’s not always easy for us to get feedback from you, our loyal, intelligent, incredibly good-looking audience. We value your opinion, so we decided we’d provide you with a place where you can drop us comments whenever you want. That’s the Meta category; it’s essentially the Going Concern comment box. You can use it to give us praise, log a complaint — like how all these changes are pointless — or just offer ideas on how we can make the site better.

All this new stuff is in addition to the categories that we’ve offered since we launched Open Items over three years ago. Your questions about firms and employers, careers productivity, the CPA exam, student issues and anything else, remain welcome.

There, that’s it. That’s all I’ve got for now. Go enjoy the new and improved Open Items. But play nice! That means adhering to the community guidelines. And of course, if you want to tell us that you hate everything, you can pen your screed over in Meta.
