Implementation of the first phase of new Reckon identity service.
At first this service is being used by the APS Cloud products however this will expand to all Reckon software later in the year. This service will allow us to deliver over the next little while features that APS clients have requested for quite some time including Multi Factor Authentication and Enterprise based logins. This is also the start of the journey to have a single login for the entire business. Rather than having 3 or 4 passwords to use a multitude of Reckon software, this will all become consolidated.
Web timesheets can be accessed via the URL: http://timesheets.aps.reckon.com
You will automatically be requested to login. Please use your username and password.
Web Timesheets looks similar to the desktop diary style timesheet.
Each row in the grid represents 1 unit of time (when zoom is set to “4x zoom”) for the logged in User.
