Hi all,


Hope you have had a great week.


We’re excited to announce that we will be unveiling our new-look Community Forum next week. When you visit the forum next Thursday, I hope you will be pleased with the changes we have made. We want to help facilitate an even more vibrant community and ensure the forum is a really useful resource for all.


Our priority in the forum redevelopment was improving ease-of-use. Some users have told us that they found the forum difficult to use and navigate. We’ve worked to make it much easier to get around, find the information you need and post your messages. We’ve also made the forum more visually attractive and added some great functionality.


The biggest changes have been made to the front page, where we have a new tabbed navigation system that makes it really quick and easy to browse. I’m sure you’ll love it.


The new forum also better highlights Accepted Solutions so you can find answers quickly and easily, and the new front page encourages users to search before they post. We also have more a prominent announcement system for alerting you to important information, and a much better help system for getting the most out of the forum.


We also want to better reward those who so generously share their time and expertise to help others. You will now find Category Expert leaderboards across the forum, recognising experts in categories such as MYOB Atlas, LiveAccounts, Retail Manager and AccountRight. Of course we will also still have our top contributors list on the home page.


If you “mouse over” a user’s name on the new leaderboards you will be able to learn more about them. If you are an expert, we encourage you to fill in your biography on your My Settings page so you can share information about yourself and your business. We think it could be a great promotional tool.   


Speaking of experts, we have had some relatively new contributors make a splash on the Community Forum this week. The top contributors for the past week were FrankHua, Jace_IT_Figures, Clive and Ray-Man. Many thanks for your valuable assistance to so many forum users.


We might be over the end of financial year madness but the Community Forum has remained busy this week. We welcomed 350 new members and received over 1000 posts, including over 230 from MYOB staff.


Love your work,
