Updates to the Find-an-Accountant Directory

Starting today, we are rolling out the first phase of the Find-an-Accountant directory redesign to drive more connections between small businesses and Certified ProAdvisors®. This is the first step in a carefully planned process to build a more modern and engaging directory that demonstrates your expertise to the thousands of small businesses that search for a ProAdvisor each year.

The biggest change for now is a more robust edit profile tab in the QuickBooks® Online Accountant ProAdvisor portal. You’ll now see how your profile is performing, including your profile views, number of leads and clicks on your social links. Based on profile strength, we’ll also recommend actions to improve your profile.

ProAdvisors can now add years in business, links to social networking sites and languages spoken.

Please note that while these fields will not be added to public profiles on www.proadvisor.intuit.ca/fap until early 2017, the new fields will be visible to our customers who search for a ProAdvisor through the in-product directory in QuickBooks Online. We encourage you to take this opportunity to add this new information and make sure your profile is up-to-date.

Additional changes:

  1. You can preview how your profile will now appear in the directory inside QuickBooks Online, and see what it will look like on www.proadvisor.intuit.ca/fap, starting in early 2017.
  2. Your certifications more clearly demonstrate your product expertise.
  3. Phone numbers are now limited to office, mobile and fax – and will display in that order. We encourage you to verify that your numbers are accurately listed.

What’s Next?

Once the newly designed, mobile-responsive profile pages are completed, the next major improvements will include an improved search experience that surfaces the information small businesses most want to know about your practice at a glance. Stay tuned for more announcements in the coming weeks and months.
