Cannot send payment summaries (and now payslips) by email

Hi,

I tried to send Payment summaries by email, however after I ticked all staff, I need to select "Select Forms To Send" but there is no form to choose and at the bottom it said "Currently there are no forms marked to be sent". 

I have asked the person who processed payroll for prior years, she said she manually download the payment summaries and manually email one by one, because after consulting with the Reckon technical support, they said we are not able to send by email.

We have over 700 payment summaries to send, it would take days to send manually.

Now I cannot email the payslips as well. Exactly the same problem last year. After failed to send payment summaries by email, she was not able to email payslips. We always send all payslips by email.

This is so frustrating. Can someone please suggest what to do? Thank you very much.

HI Deborah,

Can you take a look at the following KB article, is your situation the same as what is outlined there?

Send Forms list is blank and there are no Payment Summaries to email

Hi Rav,

Thank you for your reply.

It is similar situation. 

I have done step 4 and when I did step 5, there is no forms marked to be sent, I pressed ESC. I repeat step 5 many times (more than 20 times), but still nothing. Is it step 4 or 5 that I should repeat? It said repeat step 4 as many times as needed, is it a typo?

I am having the same issue with payslips.  I can select them to email however when I say send they are not showing in the window to select them to send.  There are no other forms waiting to be sent.

I have two files and it's not working in either. I tried Rav's suggestion but still is not working. I can send myself a report via email so am at a loss as to wht the payslips have suddenly stopped.

Hi Rav,

Could you please confirm which step to repeat? I have done step 1 to 4c, then there is no forms marked to be sent.

I did step 5, still there is no forms marked to be sent.

Step 6 "Go to Send Forms to Email again. Can you see the email for the dummy employee? If not, repeat step 4". Does it mean I should do step 5, Go to "Send Form" then ESC? Because if I should repeat step 4, should I create another dummy employee, process another pay then prepare a payment summary.

Just want to make sure I do the correct one. I google this and some people was saying he/she spent an hour or so. I have 700+ payment summaries, I would expect it takes longer.

Many thanks.

Hi Deborah

I repeated step 4 about 100 times for 1 file and only about 10 for the other one.  Like you I looked at other comments and I think you will just have to keep repeating it till it works.  I even downloaded the file to see if it would send locally but the same thing occurred. 

Good luck

Hi Christine,

May I know how did you do it? And how many staff do you have?

I went to File > Send Form > ESC more than 1,000 times but still did not work :( So frustrating. Trying to call Reckon but is put on hold for 20 minutes now.

The problem is now fixed :)  I clicked File > Send Form > ESC more than 3,000 times. Spent so many hours, but at least the problem is fixed.

Thank you, Rav.

This happens to me EVERY new financial year!  I generate the PAYG summaries, it freezes and BAM! Lost ability to email summaries and payslips. So frustrating.

Hi Amelia,

Perhaps trying to email payment summaries by smaller batches to avoid it freezes.

I agree it is so frustrating. Reckon should have fixed this years ago.

Just happened to me as well. I followed instruction and no luck. I closed Reckon Accounts, reopened and emails now appear in Send Forms.

FIXED!

I too had to go to 'FILE' > 'SEND FORMS...' > then click on 'CLOSE' on the window that comes up.  Repeat multiple times (I had to do it approx 15-20 times) before you see the items or people you are sending the forms to.  Hope makes sense.  GOOD LUCK!

Hayley, it depends how many payment summaries were corrupted. I was trying to send payment summaries 4 times each with 700+ payment summaries, therefore I need to delete more than 3,000 forms.

We have the same problem, we have 3 Companies, 1 had 145 payment summaries to send and it emailed them just fine, another Company had 185 payment summaries to send and it crashed after sending 129 and now I can't send the remaining payment summaries and the other Company on has 4 payment summaries to send and I wasn't able to send any of them.

Tanya, try to log out and log in again. If you still have problem, go to File > Send Form > ESC. You might need to do this 185 times. It worked for me.
