Why does this misleading step occur when folowing Easy Step TurboTax standard prompts?

Easy Step prompts a novice to enter T4s and T5s also. (recommending the upgrade to Premier but still apparently ok to use Standard). Pressing done with T5s takes you to "Your investments Profile for 2018" to toggle on Dividends from Canadian Corporations. Pressing continue takes you to "Statement of Investments Income" to enter the Amount of Actual Dividends Recieved. Doing this step improperly inflates total income and thusly tax liability. I dont see anything such as "do not report amounts previously entered on T5s" or the sort. Im glad I saw this  as I was standing over my daughter in laws shoulder. This step is obviously not user friendly. Particularly for a novice putting their trust in the product that I promote.

Thank you for your feedback. We will pass this information on to our development team as it certainly could be confusing and cause a double entry of dividend income.
