Ability to copy text from other external programs such as Word.  Currently have to re-type everything manually.

    This already exists in the software, however Mac users are required to use both Windows and Mac Copy/Paste commands.


    Please see this KB article for detailed instructions.

    Hi Jacqui. This is possible to do. Can I ask if you are using Reckon Accounts DESKTOP or HOSTED? Kind regards, Jason.

    I am using Reckon Hosted.  If there is a way that would be great because I am forever having to re-type text from Word

    Thanks for that Jacqui. Depending on what browser you are using (chrome, internet explorer, safari etc...) you may need to use the clipboard. 

    Copy the text from your word document > select the clipboard > paste the text into the clipboard > click the Copy button > paste your text into the relevant form in Reckon Accounts Hosted. 

    Update: We are addressing this issue for Chrome users in an upcoming release, however Edge and Firefox still require the clipboard.

    Doesn't appear to work using a Mac.

    Hi Jacqui. Mac uses the Command key instead of CTRL. Please try Command + V  / Command + C

    A bit more info for Mac users:

    Because Reckon Accounts is hosted on Microsoft (Windows) servers, within the session you use CTRL + C/V however your local PC, being a Mac, requires CMD + C/V to copy/paste.

    The process to copy from a Local Mac to Reckon Accounts Hosted is: 

    On Local PC, use CMD + C
    Open Clipboard and use CMD + V
    In RAH window use CTRL + C to copy from clipboard
    and then CTRL + V to paste into the required field
