Important reminder!

Product support for Engagement CS is ending on September 30, 2020. See Engagement CS license expiration 2020 - frequently asked questions for more information.

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of Creative Solutions Accounting.

You may occasionally want to make notes to yourself or to another CSA user within your firm about the client or the client data. For example, you may want to remind yourself about tasks to complete or to follow up with the client about a particular question or special issue. Use the Client Note dialog to record, format, and view or print one note of unlimited size for the open client.

Users of Practice CS: If your firm is licensed for the Client Management module of Practice CS, you can view CSA client notes from Practice CS. The setup and formatting steps you'll need to follow are contained in the CSA help topic called Sharing client notes with the Practice CS Client Management module.

For instructions specific to Practice CS, please view the Practice CS help topic called Integrating client notes from CS Professional Suite Accounting Products.
