Hi everyone,

To ensure our systems are humming along at top capacity as we head into the busy period, our teams will perform maintenance in some areas of our systems this weekend, postponed from the previous week-end.

As a result there will be a short period where some services will be intermittently unavailable including;
  • The control panel in Reckon Accounts Hosted (file/folder sharing, logging off active sessions, managing users etc)
  • Online registration/activation of Reckon Accounts, Point of Sale, Payroll and Elite Desktop software
  • Reckon Docs orders

Our top priority is to ensure minimal disruption to your normal use of your Reckon software and as such there will be no impact to Reckon Accounts Hosted services other than the control panel during the maintenance period. We also expect the control panel to be available again within two hours of the maintenance period commencing.

The overall maintenance window will kick off at 8:00PM (AEST) on Saturday 11 May and conclude at 2:00AM (AEST) Sunday 12 May.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding.

Hello - Reckon Accounts Hosted is currently not working? I thought this maintenance would not affect our use of hosted? Please help, I am desperatley trying to complete BAS work for my clients. I need access to Reckon now as well as tonight and it is important that Hosted remains accessible.

Kind Regards,

Hi Melanie,

We didn't have any other reports of issues connecting to Hosted today and tonight's maintenance hasn't blocked access to Hosted (just to the Control Panel).

Are you still having issues connecting? If so, what error are you getting?

Hi Sue,

I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble accessing Reckon Accounts Hosted.

We are not aware of any issue with Reckon Accounts Hosted today.  The control panel (which is accessed after you login) was unavailable for a few hours last night during the maintenance.  But has been fully functional all day today.

If possible could you post further information on what you are seeing.

Hi,
 I have been trying to reach customer support for two days now. I have sat on the phone for  well over 2 hours ( currently waiting to be answered - 35 minutes on this call and this is the second number I've tried, gave up on the first after 30 minutes) I have emailed two different email addresses and have not had a reply.

Hi Sue,

Thanks for providing the detailed error. This problem has not been reported by other users today and thousands of users are successfully using hosted.

I believe this is a problem confined to your PC or your local router.

What I think is happening is that your system has not been updated with the latest domain name information for hosted.reckon.com.

If you haven't already. I would restart the computer to see if that fixes the issue. If that doesn't work and you are familiar with the command line , you could try running this command: ipconfig /flushdns

If you still experience problems after this l, a restart of your intent router may help, or you may need to get some technical assistance.

I hope one of these options works for you.

I have tried a restart of both my computer and my router, and also tried a different means of logging in.
Could you please give me more information about the command: ipconfig/flushdns
Do I put this in my browser search box?
Why did this change today?

I have used your "ipconfig". I had to get help to do it.
And restarted my computer and router again!

And using google I get the same message.

And using internet explorer - it can't even find the error message - the screen stays blank.

This is NOT my computer problem - this is because you have changed servers or whatever in your maintenance.


I am really dissatisfied with the product "Reckon Accounts Hosted" and will NOT be recommending it to any of my clients.

I have no doubt that you are going to have this problem tomorrow or else it will have sorted it self out. 
I did not have to wait 3 hours for a reply earlier, so why no reply?
I would like someone to call me tomorrow about the possibility of changing back to desktop.
This service is really unsatisfactory!

Hi Sue,

I'm sorry to hear that none of my suggestions have made a difference and I apologise for the frustration this is causing you.  I have not been online this afternoon and that is why i have not responded until now.

I will arrange for customer service to call you in the morning.

Keep on holding on. Took me 45 minutes the last time to get through and the other 5 times I called over the last couple of days I was on hold for at least 35 minutes before i had to hang up and never got answered. Super frustrating. My problem was not the same as yours though. They are clearly understaffed.
