CCH Adds Capabilities to Award-winning Smart Charts

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., December 8, 2009) – Now subscribers to CCH State Tax and Tax Prep Partner can save even more time with their research and communications through award-winning Smart Charts™.  CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business, is a leading provider of tax, accounting and audit information, software and services (

“We’re changing the ‘Highlight Changes’ functionality in Smart Charts to make it more flexible and adding the capability to e-mail results directly from a research session, on top of our existing export capability,” said CCH Product Manager Angela Darrow. “The end result is greater productivity.”

Customized Date Ranges

With the Highlight Changes function of CCH Smart Charts, any items that have been updated or changed within a selected range will be highlighted in the results. Now, instead of pre-set date ranges, subscribers can use a drop-down calendar to specify any span of time into the past.

“This level of customization enables customers to target a date range depending on their needs,” Darrow said. “They could target only changes that have taken effect in the last two months, or highlight all changes in the states’ treatment of a topic during the last six years – whatever their research project demands.” 

E-mail Directly from Results Screen

Now, subscribers can e-mail their results directly from the State Tax and Tax Prep Partner Smart Charts result screens. Files can be e-mailed in HTML, Microsoft Excel® and Microsoft® Word formats when in chart view; HTML and Excel formats when in matrix view.

“Word and Excel documents are tools our subscribers require as part of their everyday practices. Now they can e-mail those formats directly from their research sessions, saving time and improving productivity,” Darrow said.
