What is the ProSeries process of amending a 2019 efiled 1040 when a client receives a CORRECTED W2?

A Taxpayers Spouse received a corrected 2019 W2 after the return was efiled. Is there a process that makes filing an amended 1040 return due to a W2C a bit simpler than it looks? No other corrections are needed. 

(The W2C changes all Federal & State totals.)

It's not that difficult but before you start, make sure you have either a paper or pdf copy of the original return saved in a safe spot.  Once you are sure that you have saved a copy of the original return, go into the 1040X and click the box to say that you are amending a 2019 return.  Write the reason for the amendment in the explanation area of the form.  Do the same for your state if your state has its own "X" form.  Then go in and correct the W-2.  Make sure the changes have flowed through properly on the 1040X and state and you are then ready for your next return.

Armpit sniffer. Yup, checked out the help wanted ads and found the job. With my nose, how can I go wrong?
