Google will no longer support use of third-party apps

We are currently running Reckon Accounts 2022 and use a gmail account to send invoices. In order to do so we have to Allow Less Secure Apps. Google are saying from May 30th they will no longer support the use of third-party apps. Does anyone know what this means for sending invoices using gmail? Sorry this is a bit over my head 😕

    Hi @MichaelK

    Let me have a chat with our product team about this to see if they can give me any info around this. I'll come back to you.

    I can't turn on "Allow Less Secure Apps" to send my invoices from gmail when 2 step verification is set in Google. How will we email invoices if we can't turn on "Allow Less Secure Apps".

    Will setting an App password for Reckon fix this problem?

    I have solved this issue by using full version of Outlook and linking gmail account. Microsoft apps now have third party access.
