Online Filing Configuration

Following the migration of the CCH iXBRL Review and Tag licence to sit within CCH Central in the 2022.1 release, some customers received an error message when attempting to click on the hyperlinked filing status:


After re-entering the credentials the message persisted. We advised users to restart Central as the cache still retained the old data.

We have now added a warning message so that when a change is made to the iXBRL Settings advising that Central needs to be restarted:


Note: The warning message ONLY appears if CCH Central or CCH iXBRL Review and Tag are open when the changes are made.
