Join the Team: The CS Professional Suite Ideas Communities

Community, CS Professional Suite, Technology May 30, 2013

The power of suggestion is a potent force. It can influence the way we dress, the things we buy, and even our outlook on life.

Now you can put the power of suggestion to work for you in a different way: as a member of the CS Professional Suite Ideas Communities.

An Ideas Community is just that: a community dedicated to ideas and suggestions. Each community gives you, the customers who work with our products every day, the opportunity to suggest ideas for new features and enhancements. Other community members can vote for or comment on the ideas they support.

It’s not a social network – we have our Community for that – and it’s not a product support forum. Most importantly, it’s not and never will be a place for anyone to sell products or services.

Share Your Thoughts

You’ll find an Ideas Community for each of the following products:

  • Accounting CS
  • NetFirm CS
  • Practice CS
  • UltraTax CS
  • Web Builder CS

Thomson Reuters product developers follow the communities closely to stay up-to-date on the suggestions offered, and will occasionally interact with members when an idea needs more clarification or is being considered for implementation.

If you own more than one product that has a community, you can use a single login to join each of the Ideas Communities. You can also customize your interaction with the community to receive immediate, daily, or weekly updates. Your level of participation in the community is completely up to you.

While suggesting an idea to the community doesn’t necessarily mean it will be implemented, the Ideas Communities are an important way to help us plan new features and, most importantly, to help our development team understand users’ needs.

To date, we’ve implemented more than 400 ideas from the five communities. We hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity to enhance our technology partnership with you and put the power of suggestion to work for your firm today with the CS Professional Suite Ideas Communities.

If you’d like to learn more about the CS Professional Suite Idea Communities, visit and search on “Ideas” or “Suggestions.” You’ll find links to a Help topic with more details including a video on how to join. You can also access the communities from your CS Professional Suite program.
