How do I perform my control?

You can perform the assigned control in two different ways:

Via e-mail notification:
If you are assigned to a control, you receive an email with a link to the control you need to perform.

  1. Click on the control name such as “CM2 - Bank Reconciliation” to perform the control you are assigned to.
  2. Login with your username (e-mail), if login is required.

You do not necessarily need to login to Impero to perform/complete a control. If login is not required, you will access the control directly.

Log into the Impero environment:
If you are assigned to a large number of controls, you may choose to login at Impero to get a complete list of the controls assigned to you. Please note, that this will require a login to Impero.

  1. Login at Impero with the URL (xxx is your organization's name).
  2. Click on “Your pending actions” to get a list presented of controls assigned to you.
  3. Click on the control title to perform the control.

Color coded set-up. 
The task you are assigned to perform will be in the color blue (Figure 1)

Tip!  Click on the continue button to leave a comment for the reviewer, and submit your control!

View previous performed control:

If the control is on a schedule and you have performed the control before, you can click “View previous”  in the upper right corner (Figure 1) when performing your control, to see your previous answers for a recurring control. 

Tip! Only half-finished the control? You can save the draft without submitting and continue later, by clicking "Save draft" in the lower left corner (Figure 2).
