Password Reset via Email

An option to request a password reset via email is now available. 


Administrators can turn this option off under Administration, Password Policies.


State Tax Update Option

A new button is available under Settings, State Tax.  The [Reset All State Tax Settings] button will reset the state tax information to the default state tax rates provided by Money Tree Software.  The state tax rates are updated annually.  Advisors needing the state tax data no longer have to manually enter state tax rates or wait for the next update.  


Exercise caution when using this option, as it eliminates any custom state tax information.  When using the option to reset all state tax rates, be sure make any adjustments as required for state or local tax purposes.
