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 following procedures to add custom folders, custom reports, financial statements, and letters in the Reports List frame of the Report Designer.

Adding folders

  1. Click the Reports, Financial Statements, or Letters button at the bottom of the list frame to open the appropriate list.
  2. Right-click in a blank area of the list frame and choose New Folder.
  3. Enter a folder name in the Folder name field of up to 150 alphanumeric characters and click OK to save and create the folder in the tree view.
  4. Use the right-click context menu to perform the following tasks for a selected custom folder.

Adding reports, financial statements, and letters
