Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Accounting CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline for quarterly payroll tax forms.

Links to our most popular payroll tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

Use the List Items grid in the Setup > Custom Fields screen to customize the items included in the drop-down list for a custom field.

To add list items for a new custom field, follow these steps.

  3. Select List from the drop-down list in the Type field.
  4. In the List items grid, enter both an item ID and description for each item to be available for selection from the drop-down list for the custom field.


    • The ID may contain only numbers and letters.
