New! Design for Info and Engagement Worksheets

This release debuts a new design for Info and Engagement worksheets in all 2019 TaxCycle modules, and in 2020 slips modules. (We hope you like it!) Over the coming months, we will roll out similar design changes to other worksheets and slips across TaxCycle.

Fields in the Dates section on the Engagement worksheet now also link with the related workflow tasks:

  • The Workflow Due Dates set the expected date for completing the related group.
  • The Completion dates list the dates when the preparers or reviewers completed the tasks.
