    • hire more people. I just waited for an hour and a half to get an answer to a problem with your program. No service. Unacceptable.

      You need to hire more people to answer the phone. I just waited for and hour and a half . That's an unacceptable level of service.

      • Make the time longer for passwords to keep programs open. I open mine 50 plus times a day!

        Passwords: For small offices with only one person on software, let it be 4 hours at least. 50 per is day is excessive time spent cause I was talking with clients or putting folders together. Need an adjustable time global or not!

        • install feature where you leave your phone number and Proseries Rep calls you back in the order in which you called (like many airlines do)

          Instead of being on hold for extended wait times on the phone (1and a 1/2 hours on my business line today) get a system where you can leave your callback number and Proseries reps call back in the order the calls were received. I know many airlines offer this option. This leaves my business line open until Proseries has omeone ready to help. Nowadays, when leaving my numberwith an airline, it even gives me an idea how long ot will be approximately before someone calls me back. The technology exists and I think it would help all of us dealing…

          • Support Reps Inexperienced

            As a ProSeries user for 20+ years, support reps with knowledge of the program especially during tax season has decreased year after year after year. Hardly ever do I place a call and speak to a representative in which I DON'T have to teach them how the program works. Not only frustrating, irritating. Support reps have become glorified call takers and more a wast of time especially with respect to calculation issues and defect issues with the program. Spend more money on supporting ProSeries Professional and quit spending money on Turbo tax commercials.

            • Put a link to this page in the program.

              Proseries needs a "Feedback" button. Or if it has one, make it easier to find.

              • RETAIN the CHAT option for support! It saves time!

                PROSERIES has discontinued the CHAT help as of November, 2017. I recommend continuing the CHAT line as it saves time.

                  • "Date e-filed" and "Date extension e-filed" need to be available columns in Homebase View

                    Please make "Date e-filed" and "Date extension e-filed" available columns for customizing a Homebase View. On the last day of tax season, it is critical to be able to easily see if every return has been either e-filed, or an extension has been e-filed. I don't need to see if I checked a particular checkbox on the client status page, I need to see if the return (or extension) was actually e-filed. Thanks!

                          • Seriously considering switching to UltraTax

                            You have raised prices significantly over the past 15 years, but your service is getting worse and worse. Are you trying to emulate IRS's ridiculous hold times. I was hold for a few time over an hour to reach someone for a simple question that took them 30 seconds to answer. You need to clean up your act. You need to increase quality of service in line with your price increases.

                                • Fix the ridiculous password requirements.

                                  The complicated passwords, expiring and not letting people use old passwords results in everyone writing passwords down and leaving them out. Pro series passwords on yellow sticky notes all over the office. Counter-productive.

                                  • If possible, work with IRS to allow the software to be able to file a form that would enable someone to modify estimated payment amounts

                                    At this point it appears contacting the IRS is the only way this can be done once a return is filed. However, the possibility that someone may need to adjust this amount due to and increase or decrease in business is at least moderate. Would be nice to be able to just file a form to adjust this.

                                      • Only require the completion of 1099-G payer information when the form is actually received

                                        The state tax refund is always requiring a Form 1099-G to be completed. If the client didn't itemize last year, the Colorado Department of Revenue does not issue a 1099-G. ProSeries requires completion of the Form 1099-G EIN and address regardless. Please make these entries on the 1099-G required only when the refund is taxable and a Form 1099-G has actually been received.

                                        • Get more support agents so I don't spend over two hours on hold w/ bad music.

                                          Why must I wait for over two hours with obnoxious music for something that in previous years was an ONLY 15-20 wait. You are worse than the IRS on hold times and that's really bad. This lack of customer service is a great way to chase customers from you. When you finally get an agent, they are all still terrific in EVERY way at solving problems in a very professional manner.
