The current year, plus two prior years are efile-able.  So your 'client' is correct.

And there is nothing different about the procedure. Prepare the return, check the results for accuracy, then click on the efile button.

2018 had a little update quirk earlier in the season, you may need to use REFRESH Updates in order to get the Efile ability to work for 2018.
