Reckon Accounts Premier 2021 user default file backup location can't be set as default
Last week I installed Reckon Accounts Premier 2021 after using Reckon Accounts Premier 2016 for a number of years.
Once I had backed up a file to my chosen location in Reckon Accounts Premier 2016, all I had to do was click on the backup icon on the toolbar each time and the backup would commence.
Now with Reckon Accounts Premier 2021, in order to back up my file I click on the backup icon on the toolbar, the Backup window appears and I click on the options button. I am then required to enter a file backup location, amongst other settings in order to save my backup. This is what happens every time. It is very time consuming and frustrating.
Reckon Accounts Help states;
'Use the Save Backup Copy: Options window to set default options for backing up your files (such as where you want to save your local backup).'
Reckon Accounts Help also states ;
- Indicate where to store your local backup copies.
- Click Browse to locate the directory where you want to store your local backup copies. The directory you choose remains your default until you change it.
- Note: This location is for your manual backups. To change the location for scheduled backups, click OK, click Next, and then click Next again to use the Save Backup Copy: Schedule window.
No defaults are set! Everything has to be entered each time.
The instructions under 3 aren't correct either for scheduling backups. I can see no way to schedule a backup.
If I have missed something please point me in the right direction. If I am stuck with this please fix it. I have read other posts by users with the same problem in previous versions of the software later than 2016. It worked in 2016.
