Pre-flight button for batch transmit
The Pre-flight button on the Batch Transmit page in the Client Manager allows you to check for calculation changes before transmitting a batch of returns.
Clicking this button reruns the calculations and identifies any changes since the last time the file was saved. This is particularly useful if you prepared and finalized returns earlier in the season and are waiting to transmit them upon EFILE system opening. It alerts you to any changes without you having to open the file and check. Any detected changes are not saved back into the file.
- Create a batch of files in the Client Manager.
- On the batch screen, select Transmit and then a type, such as T1 EFILE.
- Click the Pre-flight button to check for any changes.
- Messages will appear for any files that have calculation changes. We recommend you review these files before transmitting the return.
