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.

The Home Dashboard is the default screen that is displayed when the application is first launched. Like other dashboards, the Home Dashboard can be customized for each staff member to display important information on a single screen via portlets, such as web pages, alerts, and system information.

To open the Home Dashboard, choose View > Home Dashboard. Show me.
