    Your list filters as you type.

  2. Click the X  icon to clear the search field and display all clients again.

Using the Quick Search to Find a Client

Alternatively, you can use the quick search to find a client.

  1. Click within the Client List to make it active.

Searching for Files or Folders in a Client's Vault

Folder structures will vary depending on your plan (tax or non-tax) as well as the engagements you have selected. While the functionality is the same across both plans, the screens below apply to a tax accounting plan.

  1. Click on a client to open that client's vault in the Document View.
  2. Right-click anywhere in the Document View and select Find. The Find tool opens in the Document View.
  3. Enter any text to start your search. Your search results automatically display as you type.
