Hi guys,

I apologise for the confusion around the pages you're currently seeing when trying to access Hosted.

Thank you all for hanging in there with us so far, we're hearing all your feedback and frustration and working hard to get back online ASAP.


*UPDATE - 2:40pm*

Hi again everyone,

I'm very happy to advise that I've received official confirmation that this issue is now resolved.

The team are continuing to monitor to ensure full stability however at this stage everything is looking good.

I'd just like to thank everyone for their patience and hanging in there during no doubt an extremely frustrating time.

If you do continue to experience any issues, please log off any active remote sessions via the Control Panel, Logoff (using the Logout option) and retry. 
Alternatively, please get in touch with our Hosted support team to speak to a technician.

Thanks

    This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Reckon problems be honest you always have problems. Can't get in and technical says you have problems. I want an honest answer about how many days per year you have problems. Have started using again from desktop. Left as too many problems. Reckon says all fixed buy 3 weeks in our business is stuck. Reckon have the decency to tell me how many days per year from last 12 months you had problems and businesses could not log in. I can then make an informed decision about whether to keep using.

    Have just moved from desktop to online where reckon assured me they no longer have problems. 3 weeks later our business is at a standstill .Reckon please tell me over last 12 months how many days like this have occurred. I can then make an informed decision about whether to go back to desktop version. Note this is a reasonable question and you should know the answer to it in one line.

    I have been trying to log in for an hour and it keep timing out.  This is very frustrating as I have pencilled in to do clients work this morning now it looks like I will need to do it on my Saturday....

    I looked on the web site and face book page to see if there was any communication from Reckon that the system had problems but there was nothing therefore a phone call to tech support..

    VERY VERY frustrating.

    Hi Sue

    I have been cloud based for 18 months, honestly this is the second time I have been locked out or dropped off and unable to get back in, it  is very frustrating and does bring work to a grinding halt, especially when we are so reliant on technology for all our invoicing.

I can then make an informed decision about whether to go back to desktop version. Just had a quick look through problems and it seems about once a month you have issues. Please confirm exactly how often so we know how many days per month the system is likely to fail. At this stage I am thinking once we are in, grab our data and leave and go back to desktop. OR everyday we back up to desktop so we can go there and keep working when you have failures.

    The best answer to an IT issue is that it will be fixed when it's found. Having worked in IT with fixing urgent issues before, you can never give a small time estimate because even after you identify the issue (which could be very deeply buried and covered) you then need to figure out how to rectify it. Thanks for letting us know and good luck to the techies :)
