Reckon One has undergone a makeover and has a new look and feel!

This is an exciting advancement for Reckon One and provides some key improvements to workflow and usability such as;

  • Vertical navigation pane - we’ve implemented a vertical navigation style which is both easier and quicker to navigate. This navigation style will also future proof Reckon One as it creates more space for us to add additional features over time.
  • Find features quicker - we've reduced the 'clicks' required to get to your favourite features.
  • Real world language - functions have been renamed to make Reckon One more intuitive. For example, ‘selling’ has been renamed to ‘Money In’ and ‘Buying’ has been renamed to ‘Money Out’.
  • Perfect on any device - our new 'fluid' design means that Reckon One will adjust it's layout dependent on the size of the device you are using, making your business data more accessible.

Check out our Reckon Blog and video below for an overview on Australia's most affordable accounting software, Reckon One's new vertical navigation!




The introduction of vertical navigation will help you to access functions more efficiently.

For example, to access Payroll areas, click the Payroll heading from the left hand side of screen within the new Side Navigation bar. The expanded Payroll menu remains on screen constantly making it easier and quicker to access the area you want.




To access Payroll Settings you will need to click the Settings option. This will display a new look settings page with Payroll Settings available here.

You will notice under Payroll settings a heading called General, this replaces the old menu option called Payroll Settings. It still contains the same setup details as previously. Each option under the Payroll Settings is now accompanied with a brief description of what each area does.



Another addition to navigation you will notice is located towards the top of a page, you will now see the introduction of a new navigation trail. This functionality allows you to navigate back to previous pages you've used from your current position. Each page within the trail is linked making it easier to go back.





We'd love to hear your feedback on Reckon One's new navigation and if you have any questions please let us know by posting a comment below.

I might be old fashioned but why not just call them invoices and purchases

Hi Lew,

If you are referring to this point...

"Real world language - functions have been renamed to make Reckon One more intuitive. For example, ‘selling’ has been renamed to ‘Money In’ and ‘Buying’ has been renamed to ‘Money Out’."


For me this is a logical change.

Some users may have books setup with the invoicing module & some user may have books setup without the invoicing module.

In the image below, the left menu is from a book with the invoicing module enabled, the right menu is from a book without the invoicing module enabled.

The terminology 'MONEY IN' is probably a better choice than 'INVOICES' as it covers both scenarios.



Most users are going to use R1 for business accounting. However, some users will use R1 for personal finance tracking.

The previous terminology 'SELLING' isn't accurate for my non-business users as income events for these users aren't typically the result of selling something.

Changing the terminology from 'SELLING' to 'MONEY IN' is universal.

Very Exciting!! Any plan to add a cash payments register or the like? Also, any update on when the invoice templates are going to have the ability to have greater customisations?

Appreciate the feedback Kellie :) 

Further customisation options for invoice templates is on the radar for the future, no timeframe at this point but I'll keep you posted :)

Cheers

Excellent!! I do look forward to this. Mainly the font size on the top header and bottom bank details etc is too small and looks a bit out of place. Maybe there is something I am missing to be able to change this?

The reason I bring up the cash payments is as most clients using this system have a lot of expenses such as fuel which is purchased every 2nd day. Would be nice to have a running list to enter all these cash expenses quickly without linking the bank account (a lot of personal stuff goes through the bank).

Thanks :)

Looks to be a nice clean update to the UI, first looks it seems to be a improvement.

Also looks like someone borrowed the look from another 'player' in this same space, including the way 'Add' works :)

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the feedback :)

In regards to the look, we decided to go vertical as it provides more space for adding menu items in the future. With the previous horizontal style we would have to start shrinking the size of text etc to add more items.

Cheers,
Nicole

A bit scary though...designing on the run. Shouldn't there have been a roadmap of future features.

Hi Lew,

Indeed the previous design had shortcomings (which is why it was redesigned), and yes we do have a roadmap of future features.

When designing this vertical navigation system, I designed it with the roadmap in mind so that we don't need to do another big navigation change, and be able to add new features to the nav easily and in an appropriate place.

Cheers,
Nicole
