Unable to add user that was previously deleted

Im trying to add my accountant that was previously deleted, but i keep getting the message that the email address already exists....He does not show up as a user even when the inactive box is ticked.

  • Hi JL25

     

    Thanks for letting me know. Apologies that it didn't resolve the issue.

     

    To change the user access, you usually would be able to use the drop-down on the invitation already sent on my.myob to change the invitation to inviting them as an Advisor instead of File User.

     

    To do this:

    1. choose Users from the company menu in the top right corner.
    2. If in the new screen the user to be deleted is not listed, click the Status button and select all entries.
    3. In the new screen (showing user details), click the Delete button in the left corner.
    4. Note: You may have to unassigned rights first and click Save.

    You should be able to delete the user and use Create advisor successfully.

     


    Please do let us know how you go, and feel free to post again anytime you require further assistance.

      I too am having trouble re-adding an inactive user with the same email addr.

       

      I had cancelled the user and made them inactive and when I try to delete it states "can't delete a user that has an audit trail".

       

      I initially set them up as a file user but they needed to be an advisor.

       

      Help!

      In the original question the user asks

       

      Im trying to add my accountant that was previously deleted, but i keep getting the message that the email address already exists.

       

      In the same way I am trying to re-use an generic email address for a user that was previously deleted.  That user does not appear on any list of users even when I select every status possible on the list of users.

       

      I cant find where the original question is answered.

       

      I get the error message that the email address already exists and is attached to another user.

       

      Is it possible to reallocate an email address once the user profile originally associated with that email address  is deleted?

       

      The second question is that the 2 factor identification links that user id to a mobile phone number.  How can we change the 2 factor id so that it looks to a new mobile number?

       

      Thanks
