Updates for Intuit Link in ProConnect Tax Online

Link makes collecting your clients' data simple.  We're always working on new features and functionalities to make data collection fast, easy, and organized.

This article is updated on an ongoing basis when new features are introduced.

New features

Bulk upload for taxpayers
  • No longer does the taxpayer have to go through the document checklist one item at a time to upload. Now they may upload in bulk. The system will categorize the uploads based on their document type and the remaining items on the checklist, leaving any additional documents to be bucketed by the preparer.
Organizer templates
  • In Link settings, streamline your workflow with reusable templates for engagement letters, questions, and document checklists that you send often. You can start a template from scratch, or copy a pre-made Quickstart template and customize it
Collaborate with business clients
  • Now you can use Link to gather tax information for all of your clients, not just individuals.
Shared email address support
  • Collaborate with clients who share the same email address, like a child and parent who file separate returns.
Item status
  • Quickly see and mark which items have not been answered, are ready for your review, ready to be entered, and completed. Learn more >
Activity feed
  • An audit log that shows the history of your taxpayers questionnaire answers, uploaded documents, and comments. Learn more >

  • Quickly identify new comments from clients while working on their tax return. The 'new comment' indicator appears blue when there's a new comment, then grey after it's viewed. Learn more >
