  5. After the import is complete, select Next.
    You will go to the Account Grouping page, with a table containing the columns from the imported file.
  6. Verify that the accounts are mapped to the appropriate MAC code and that accounts are using the correct account tags and industry tags.

    A pop-up window appears.

  2. Select Create library.
    A pop-up window appears.
  3. Provide the following information:
    • Library name: The name used to identify the library across MindBridge.

    • Account grouping: Select the account grouping created during Step 1.
    • Industry tags: As auditors create account groupings with different accounts, instances of overlap may occur; Industry tags can be leveraged to employ only a portion of an account grouping’s accounts.

Step 3: Apply the library to a new engagement
