Important reminder!

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS (but not Engagement CS) permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

For details, see CSA license expiration 2017 – frequently asked questions.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of these CSA modules.

For more information, see Virtual Office CS or SaaS drive mappings.

When in an application on Virtual Office (or CBS ASP), you are able to select server mapped drives (such as your data drive, Y:\, and your archive drive, W:\). You can also access your local drive (such as your local C:\ drive, which is mapped as C$ on Client (V:\)). However, your local network drives are not listed.

The local network drives are not listed in order to improve log-in performance. However, in program dialogs where you can type in a data location, you can navigate to your local network drives. For our example, we will use the M:\ drive as the local network drive we wish to access. We need to type \\client\M$\ to access our local network drive M:\.
