There are two Business Essentials HR forms available for download from the Square 9 SDN as of this writing: the Federal W-4 and the Federal I-9. These forms use built-in CSS to display the actual printout of the form to the users. As the forms change with the new year, the CSS scripts and the forms mappings need to be updated accordingly. This article will walk you through updating the Federal W-4 and Federal I-9 forms for the year 2021.


Updating the Federal Form W-4

  1. Log in to GlobalForms as your GlobalForms Administration Account.
  2. Navigate to your Federal W-4 form, and click the "Edit" button.
    • It is strongly recommended that a backup of your form is taken first. You can use the "Export" button to download a copy of your form, prior to editing.
  3. At the top of your form, there should be a component labelled "HTML Element with no content". Hover your cursor over this text to reveal the component's "Edit" button. Then, click that "Edit" button.
  4. Click the "Conditional" tab, then expand "Advanced".
  5. Locate the line containing the text below. Typically, this is line 7.
         linker.setAttribute("href","https:\/\/square9hosting.s3.amazonaws.com\/s9_fw42020.css");
  6. Replace that line with the following text.
         linker.setAttribute("href","https:\/\/square9hosting.s3.amazonaws.com\/s9_fw42021.css");
  7. Save your changes, then post a test submission of the form to ensure the correct version of the form is displayed.

Updating the Form I-9

  1. Log in to GlobalForms as your GlobalForms Administration Account.
  2. Navigate to your I9 Form, and click the "Edit" button.
    • It is strongly recommended that a backup of your form is taken first. You can use the "Export" button to download a copy of your form, prior to editing.

  4. On the "Display" tab, scroll down to the "Attributes". Find the Attribute with the name "href".
  5. Change the "Value" to the following URL:
         https://square9hosting.s3.amazonaws.com/2022_I9.css
