Hi

I installed Reckon Accounts 2018 recently, hoping to have a look at the changes relating to STP.
I couldnt find anything different. Can you tell me where the changes are ? Or is there still another update to come on July 1st? Also is there a date for the tax update release? I need to book in my IT guy in that first week of July. Thank you

Yep you can certainly create a Reckon Portal account now if you'd like to get a headstart and also download the Google Authenticator app on your smartphone from your respective app store.

The GovConnect STP app will appear within the Reckon Portal next week. 

Google Authenticator - Android

Google Authenticator - iOS

OK. Do I need to be at the computer where I'll be running payroll?
Google Authenticator asked for a KEY when setting up my account. Where do I get the key from please Rav

You've gone about as far as you can at this stage Leshelle, the next step is for you to scan the QR barcode which is presented to you by the GovConnect STP app. You won't be able to do that just yet until release next week.

This will also be covered in the webinar :)

Right. OK then. Does creating a Reckon Portal Account save anything to the desktop that youre doing it on, like the ATO Auskey does? Or can I register on any computer?

The Reckon Portal is a cloud gateway so you can register on any computer :)

Hi Rav.  Many users of RAH NZ have been experiencing performance issues with opening transactions from reports (the right click menu opens instead), moving the sliders up/down in lists, adjusting column widths etc.

It isn't a mouse setup issue as the problem exists over multiple files and on many different machines and logins.

Will this issue be resolved with the new maintenance update?

Thanks and regards, Sonia
