    Hi Kununurra Taekwondo,

    Classifications would be used to tag transactions so you can report by classification.

    According to this thread classification reporting will come in early 2017.


    "The classifications feature is available as part of the Core module and is the first phased release of classifications. The next classification update is scheduled for early 2017 and will include classification reporting."

    So, is reporting by classification available yet? .... I can't see it anywhere in the Reporting section.

    Hi Russell,

    Thank you for contacting Reckon Community.

    We would like to inform you that as of now in Reckon One there is no such report available for classification.

    Might be you will get that feature in the coming update.

    The 'coming update' has arrived, Feb 2018, but no classification reporting feature. If its not coming real soon, I will have to stop tagging my transactions and find a more cumbersome way to further identify transactions or change product.  It seems ridiculous we can use classification for almost 18 months yet no reporting available.

    Hi Dac,
    Expanding classification reporting in Reckon One is certainly still on the cards. Unfortunately, its been a delayed at this point due to other priorities that have come up however we're aware that its an area that can add a lot of value and something our devs will be working on.

    Thanks George ... I hadn't realised that. However, it's GL accounts that I'd really like to see it on.

    Has anyone got a timeframe on when reporting by classifications will be available??  We've held off changing over the last 12 months based on the availability pending for earlier in this year.

    As a relatively new user, let's say still trialling Reckon One, the lack of reporting by classifications is a great disappointment - I'd expect many businesses just would not consider Reckon One for this reason. I will try contacting Customer service about a timeline.
