TakeTurns Tips: When to skip your turn

TakeTurns’ turn-based structure is designed to propel your collaboration forward, allowing each party to take their time on their turn and end their turn when it’s the other party’s turn to work. However, there are some occasions when it’s appropriate and efficient to skip your turn

Skip your turn when you have received control of the collaboration but have no action items and want to promptly return control to the other party. This commonly arises in situations when you’re collecting documents piecemeal for collaborations such as a mortgage application, vendor onboarding, or KYC. In these cases, processing can’t begin until all documents are received, so it makes sense to skip your turn until the other party has uploaded everything that is required for action on your side.

How to skip your turn

  1. When it’s your turn (and you’ve made no changes to the collaboration), click “Skip Turn” 
  2. Write a note explaining what still needs to be done to ensure that the other party understands what they need to do 

Note that if you’ve made changes, you won’t be able to skip your turn and will instead need to click “Send Update” to end your turn.
