Sharing Attached Reckon Documents with Clients

Overview

You can use the View Access and Notification Settings to give users the ability to use the SmartVault Toolbar to view, download, upload, delete, edit document properties, and attach documents to some (but not all) Reckon Accounts entries. 

These users can also access documents attached to some (but not all) Reckon Accounts entries stored in the SmartVault client portal under the VaultName/Applications/QuickBooks folder structure.

For example, you can share a Reckon Accounts company file with users in the following ways:

  • Allow the user Fred Fallon to use the SmartVault Toolbar to view, download, upload, delete, edit document properties, and attach documents to only entries associated with inventory in Reckon Accounts. View, download, upload, delete, and edit document properties for documents only attached to inventory entries using the SmartVault client portal.
    In the SmartVault Client Portal, the documents associated with inventory Reckon Accounts entries are stored in subfolders of VaultName/Applications/QuickBooks/CompanyFileName/Documents folder structure. Subfolders are Items, ToDos, Vendors, Purchase Orders, Item Receipts, Bills & Credits, and Inventory.
    Restrict Fred from using the SmartVault Toolbar to work with any other entries in Reckon Accounts or view documents attached to any other entries in Reckon Accounts using the SmartVault client portal. 
  • Allow the user Gwen Gonzales to use the SmartVault Toolbar to view, download, upload, delete, edit document properties, and attach documents to all Reckon Accounts entries. And also, to view, download, upload, delete and edit document properties for all documents attached to inventory entries using the SmartVault client portal.

If you have shared the vault that the Reckon Accounts company file is and place users in vault-level groups using the Manage Group Members option, some of these users may also have access to the Reckon Accounts company file. 

However, these users are not displayed in this list. Only users who have been given access to the Reckon Accounts company file using View Access and Notification Settings are shown in this list. 

For more information about sharing a vault using the Manage Group Members option, see Sharing Vaults.
