We use categories for our Sydney and Branch operational but MYOB does not have facility under Categories Option to produce Multispreadsheet Profit and Loss. To compare month to month I have to do manually in excell which is a pain.  Appreciate if MYOB will enhance the report.

 

Current Status: Under consideration

Thanks for the idea. I can see how having this report would be a time saver. We encourage other users who would like the ability to use categories on the Multi Period spreadsheet profit and loss reports to vote and add further comments.

Could you please add a multi-period P&L report where you can specify a Category? We use the Categories for our different shop locations and need this separate data.

At the moment I have to run each month separately and then spend time in excel putting it altogether and the number of lines each month aren't always the same so it becomes a very time consuming task.

Have you given this more consideration MYOB?  It seems there is a need for it.  Can you please advise?

Thank you for enquiry in regards to the status of this idea.

At this point in time it is still under consideration with our program development team to look into including it in a future release. At this point in time we don't have a time frame for when this particular idea will be marked as in development or implemented. Having said that we are still encouraging clients to vote and comment if required for this idea.

So, in other words, you are not even looking into it.  How about putting it out there, rather than it being hidden in this thread.  Your clients wouldn't even know it is under consideration unless they could see it more clearly.  I fail to see why I should have to pay for an add-on when it should be a given that a category profit and loss report is multi-period.  Many companies operate under the same company name, with different departments.  Disappointing MYOB.

Hi @Metalox

My business really needs to have a P&L multi-period category reports. We have 3 shops  and need to analyse their strength and weakness according to the data  ie sales and expenses.   If we need to use excel to do the data, it is time consuming plus we can't run the report immediately once we change a data entry.   I expect it when I choose MYOB.   Xero is better in this area.

Yes simple, exactly.  Under Consideration seems to mean they have no intentention of offering this much needed option.

We are paying to other company for the add on $69 per month to get the multiperiod of category report which now I found is ridiculous.

We are paying MYOB $110 pm subscirption and willing to pay more to get the multiperiod Profit and Loss category is part of the MYOB Report.

I am waiting for 3 years now and MYOB should do somehting with this.
