DELETING OLD JOBS

Hello, I have been a dedicated MYOB user for 10 years but am frustrated with the process to delete old jobs.

We now have hundreds of old jobs in the system up to 10 years old and it appears we need to delete them one at a time using job list-edit - delete job. Furthermore, after you delete a single old job it then returns you to the top of the list, not the place in the list you were deleting from!

Surely there is a simpler way to cull old jobs from the system?? This is really frustrating

Hi @Designcraft

 

AccountRight doesn't allow for the bulk deletion of data. If you do need to delete data you would need to select to open the relevant window and select delete. For example, when selecting to delete jobs you would need to go to Lists>>Jobs and select the relevant job before selecting Edit>>Delete job. You can speed up the process a little, by clicking on the job to open the Job Information window and then right clicking on the job to select Delete Job. This will save you from having to navigate to the Edit>>Delete Job option.


Kind Regards,
Steven

Re: DELETING OLD JOBS

Hello Steven,

 

Thanks for your reply. 

This is really frustrating as we have litterally hundreds ( thousands!) of old jobs in MYOB up to 10 years old and deleting them one at a time is really slow and painful.

Surly MYOB can come up with a better system than this?

Hi @Designcraft

 

My previous post indicates what is possible in the current version of the program. If you are liking to see a change such as the ability to delete jobs in bulk I would show your support for Jobs: Purge (delete) Jobs no longer in Use on the AccountRight Idea Exchange.


Kind Regards,
