How do I change the letterhead on the organizer?

Your letterhead will display the firm name you set in Intuit Link settings. Choose Intuit Link in the main navigation, click on Settings in the top right corner of the screen, and then edit the firm name in the Firm information section.

Customize your templates

You can save time with organizer templates you can reuse for all your clients.

  1. Select Intuit Link on the left side of your screen.
  2. Click on Settings at the top right corner.
  3. Scroll down to the Organizer templates section.
    • If you used the PDF checklist before it was a part of Intuit Link, we saved a copy of your old checklist here for reference.
  4. Click Create a new template to start an organizer template from scratch, or click Duplicate on a Quickstart template to modify it.
  5. Select Edit to make changes to any part of the organizer, as needed.

Create a PDF organizer for your client

  1. On your Tax Returns list, click the down arrow next to View return.
  2. Select Collect data - Intuit Link to open the organizer panel for this client.
  3. Choose the Organizer template you want to send.
  4. Use the checkboxes to select which items to include in the organizer.
  5. Click Edit on the Document checklist to customize it based on an existing return.
  6. To save the organizer as a PDF, click the Export or print PDF button.

Once you save the PDF, click Continue to send the organizer through Intuit Link, or Cancel. If you don’t send the organizer to your client through Intuit Link, it won’t be saved in ProConnect Tax —just the PDF you download or print.
