Announcement: September 2023

We are currently well underway building our next-gen user interfaces, starting with Payroll web and mobile (released), Invoices mobile (released) and soon, advanced Payroll, Reckon Mate enhancements, and Time web.

Where appropriate we'll add features from the Product Ideas Portal to both old and new interfaces, or, where new is replacing old, we'll add to the new range only.

Thank you for your patience - whilst we understand building new interfaces and products takes longer than adding a feature, we are certain the new designs will ultimately provide a better experience for all our customers.

Allow highlighting or Bold font in the body of purchase orders for important instructions.

When writing purchase orders to suppliers, it would be helpful to have a hightlight or bold text function to make any special instructions clearly stand out as details are sometimes missed and I believe this addition would be very useful in reducing errors where a product is supplied unfinished or not as was ordered.

    12-June-2020: We have tested and cannot isolate individual text. As per the suggestion by our migration team you can of course highlight a block of text in the template.

    9-Feb-2020: Hi John. We are not sure if this is technically possible. We'll investigate and advise accordingly.

    You can edit the Purchase Order template in Reckon Accounts business range.

    Then in the Layout Designer ensure that the Supplier Message field is appears both on screen and in the printed copy of the purchase order.

    Then change the Font properties of the Supplier Message data field to be Bold.

    Hi John. Our product manager has added this to our backlog to test and also ensure it doesn't have any other unintended consequences. We'll rule it in / out once that is completed.

    I hope this is a possibility as it would be extremely handy!
