Why do does Lacerte send an organizer which invites the clients to write in all of their data?

Lacerte provides it. You send it, at your option.

I've been using their organizer for 30 years now and they have never taken steps to improve it. Just make a list of W-2s and 1099s with a check mark -- don't make them fill it out (which they do almost every year). We really only need the Schedule C, E, F and A information off the organizers. Basically anything that comes on an issued form, I don't need my clients to write it in. Most client's don't like our organizers anyway -- too confusing and too voluminous. It could be cut to about 8 pages or less for most clients. I want an organizer that is user friendly for my clients and there's no excuse for Lacerte not looking for a better mousetrap after 30 years of presenting the same old organizer year after year.

I am finding the e-organizer process too cumbersome, and those clients who have received them don't know what to do or how to respond. Based on your own experience, what do you send a client? Is it simply a list showing what was included in the prior year return along with a questionnaire similar to what you see produced by Intuit?
