Changes on Home Page Enhance Ease of Use
Right off the bat, users will notice a new look to the home page designed for easier reading, browsing and navigation. Tabs now stretch across the top of the screen for better organization and the dividing bar moves to the center of the page for better use of the all-new browse tree, which now opens in a larger window.
“So many of the new features make IntelliConnect easier and faster to use, I really liked the expanded browse tree pane, the ability to advance search and the Read Next/Previous buttons,” said Kathleen Clark, Partner with the CPA firm of Clark & Srsich LLC. “IntelliConnect continues to get better and better.”
Searching for specific information through the browse tree has also become easier with new functions to pinpoint specific content titles. One click of the new (+) or (-) icons on the left side of the home page expands or contracts the content search list – meeting the user’s information needs.
Advanced Search Optimization, Research Tools
With so much information available on any given subject, how do you find the content that best fits your needs? With IntelliConnect, CCH continues to leverage the combined power of its expert editorial staff of attorneys and accountants with cutting edge technology to bring users the most relevant information available and help them find answers as quickly as possible.
New pre-search filter changes enable users to select specific jurisdictions and courts pertaining to their research. All content items chosen during a research session are tracked and remain “selected” – allowing users to customize search-pulled content by adding and dropping items as needed. As always, multiple searches may be opened simultaneously with the ability to toggle back and forth between items.
Other enhancements to the latest release of IntelliConnect include:
- Enhanced linking to related information including: Current developments; federal and state comparisons for federal tax searches; and CCH explanations, statutes, cases, rulings & regulations for state tax searches;
- “Next” and “Previous” document links: Flipping through on-screen pages is as easy as reading a book with the “Read Next” and “Previous Document” buttons directly on each document; and
- Simplified Citation Search: Use the Search Bar to easily locate citations and see the full text as well as other citation references in the results field.
“It’s in CCH’s DNA to consistently engage our customers and listen to their ideas for enhancements,” said Tina Rajski, CCH Product Manager. “These new advancements to IntelliConnect are just the latest demonstration of our ongoing commitment acting on customer feedback.”
Users can also now access CCH’s premiere content and tools via IntelliConnect through the new CCH Mobile application available for iPhone and Blackberry mobile devices.
