What are Sticky Notes and how are they different than Client Notes?

Solution:

Sticky and Client Notes can be used to remind you of a certain task, form, or client. They can be either client specific or generic to all forms within all clients .
 
Sticky Notes:
  • Do not print with the return when the return is printed
  • Do not proforma
  • Can be entered in specific input screens and on any form

Client Notes:

  • Will print with the return when return is printed
  • Will proforma
  • Can only be entered in the input screen
  • Cannot be entered on any specific form.
To Create a new Sticky:
  1. Drag and Drop the

  2. Type your text in the Add New Note box
    • The font type or size for the note cannot be change
    • The Sticky Note color cannot be changed
  3. If this note is for the tax program or for more than one client, remove the check next to Client Specific.
    • Removing the check next to Client Specific makes the note a Sticky Note and can be seen in all clients.
  4. If the note is just for one client, check the Client Specific check box.
    • Checking the Client Specific box makes this a Client Note and will only be seen in this client.
    • Note that the checkbox is only available in the Forms view.
  5. Click OK.
