Right click on the Task list button on left-hand side of Accuro Express. Select Clear database. Right click on the Task list button again and select Refresh. The tasks should appear again. Occasionally, you may need to log out of Accuro Express and log back in for them to do so. It may be that files have been recalled for reasons such as urgency/no longer requires typing and so will not appear in your list. If you are unsure then please contact the office and we will let you know.

There are various reasons for this. If you hover your cursor over the task name, the pop-up window will detail why. Below are the possible reasons for this: –

  1. The file is urgent and needs to be transcribed as soon as possible;
  2. We have sent a file back to you because there is a problem with it. If you hover over the file name with your mouse, you will see what the problem is;
  3. There are specific instructions for a file from the customer that we want to draw your attention to. Again, hover over the file name and you will see these instructions;
  4. We have sent you a group of dictations that all relate to each other. Hover over the file name and it will tell you how many dictations relate to that task.
