Importing Clients in Bulk from Intuit Products with the Import Data Tool

The SmartVault Data Import Tool imports multiple clients from Lacerte or ProSeries to SmartVault at the same time. You can use the Import Data tool to import clients to SmartVault as you add clients to your Intuit product. If a client already exists in your SmartVault Account, the data tool recognizes the client and updates the existing client information or moves on to the next new client.

The following video walks you through importing clients via Intuit products (Lacerte and ProSeries).
