Hi everyone,
We are currently experiencing issues with the ability to login to Reckon Accounts Hosted.

Our IT team is aware of this and are working to rectify this issue at the highest priority.

Further updates will be provided here.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

*UPDATE - ISSUE RESOLVED*
11:30am AEDT

Hi everyone,
Our IT team have successfully implemented a fix to the issue impacting Reckon Accounts Hosted users today and access is now available.

*UPDATE*
2:17pm AEDT

Hello all An update to the Reckon Accounts Hosted issues. We are now back up and running and all users are able to log in and access the system.

We understand everyone’s frustration with the outage this morning, and if you suffered any inconvenience we apologise sincerely.

The issue was related to some middleware technology, which connects our users to the platform, which didn’t recognise the leap year and as such we have had to manually update each session host to resolve the problem.

I acknowledge some of the comments on the community today challenging how this could happen. Our team works very hard to monitor the system and to quality assure everything to maintain the best possible user experience. Sometimes in technology things happen that could not be foreseen, and the fact that one piece of our technology was not prepared for the leap year is enormously frustrating.

Please trust that our team is working on all components of our solution to ensure this kind of error never happens again.

This is really annoying as we have deliveries and a business to run. Reckon Accounts needs an alternative should this issue happened again. This is not very good.
An update is really needed as to what time we expected be back on. Shourly they will know if they have identified the issue.

Do we know if this is going to be all day? Surely there's a rough idea? 

I think Reckon needs to look into an offline mode as suggested before.

This is getting beyond a joke! Arrived to work early to carry on with end of month etc along with many others... This is completely unacceptable 6 hours of paying staff and sitting around looking at all the work that needs to be done!! And no idea of time/day things will be up and running?... Absolutely time to explore other options.

So the boffins identified it three hours ago...... surely they can undo whatever "upgrade" they did which caused this catastrophic failure!!!!!

As they have identified it, why has it taken three hours and still no fix?????

maybe we should also send in invoices for paid staff and child care and other expenses being incurred while the software 'glitches' are being sorted. im sure the 'glitches' would be quickly fixed then!!!

Like everyone else, desperate for an ETA please. I have wages to pay to my staff today and need my Reckon Payroll up and going, invoices that need to get out to my clients today and end of month to finalise. Please, some indication of timeframe would be really considerate to everyone right now.
Unbelievable, eom accounts to be finalized, what are we paying for here????

Hi Duncan, do you mean that it logs you out fully when attempting this?
Which brower are you using and could you let me know if you experiencing the same problem on an alternative browser?

Let me know

Hi everyone,
As soon as I have word on a timeframe/ETA I will update the thread here. I do not anticipate this being a long term issue however I'll wait for word from the specialists for firm information rather than speculate.

I can fully understand that the timing of this issue couldn't be any worse and I apologise for the frustration.

I'll keep this thread informed with more info.

Thank you

This is incredible, just during month end, should please send an email to the accounts when the system is back running, should be rebate for this issue, we have now 4 accountants in the company not able to do AP or AR or any accounting activities thanks Recon.
