Customized letter templates

I customize the Profile letter templates each year. This is getting to be a bit of a pain as there are an extensive number of changes, particularly with having to go through and change all plural entries (we, us, etc.) to the singular for a one-person accounting firm. Is there a way to carry forward the coding in my particular templates from 2015 to 2016?

Hello JParsons,

Thank you for using ProFile Community. I hope all is well. Unfortunately there is no way to carry forward letter templates. This is due to the change in coding ( tax lines/files & coding change). Sometimes lines are removed or new ones are added (such as T1pad this year)

I am very sorry about this, I would recommend to copy your 2015 letter to a word document and highlight all of the changes you want to implement, so its easy to copy it over to the 2016 letter. 

Also, if you have suggestions on what you would like to see changed the the default letter, please forward them to development by pressing help in profile and send feedback. That goes to developers to review for a future release. Perhaps they can implement one for  a one-person accounting firm as well or a few letter templates.

I hope this helps.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
