Ascend HQ FAQs

Q: How do I sign up my store for Ascend HQ?

A: Make sure you are on the December 2018 version of Ascend. We are working to make AscendHQ available to all our retailers on the December 2018 version of Ascend or later! 

Your data just needs to be migrated to our Stratus platform on Microsoft Azure. We are working hard to migrate data of the locations that have updated to the on a daily basis. To ensure your data gets migrated as quickly as possible, leave Ascend running on your server computer at all times. It can be on the login screen as long as you've logged in at least once since the program was launched!

Q: Why isn't my Ascend HQ site ready?

A: There's a few reasons your site may not be ready. Start by checking these items:
  • All your locations need to be on the December 2018 version of Ascend or later.
  • Ascend needs to be running (and logged into) on your server machine (at all locations).
  • Some retailers may need a special version of the December 2018 release (18.2.204) so your sales data can be migrated - ensure you've run all Ascend updates that are available for your store (see Install an Ascend update).
