Sales: Saving a list of services/descriptions to use on invoice

When evaluating MYOB 2016.2 (after using MYOB 16 for years) i was quite surprised to see that very little progress seems to have been made, at least, in the areas where i use MYOB.


Specifically, it would be handy to have:

  • Ability to set a default directory for saving invoices
  • Ability to set a default directory for invoices on a per client basis
  • Ability to set a invoice for to be used on a per client basis (one for time billing, one for "normal" sales)
    • This would ease the process of billing our international customers (for example) - who we use a seperate invoice form (as they need different information)
  • Ability to include the employee name on time-billing invoices
  • Ability to track projects
    • PO#, value, hours, charge rate/hour, lookup number of hours remaining (integration with time billing)
    • Place some of the above information (such as hours remaining on PO) on a time billing invoice


The lack of these in MYOB 16 was concerning, but since there has been no movement in over 10 years, i have to ask - is MYOB just not intended for services based businesses? If not, thats fine... bit if it is, these seem like gaping emissions.

  • Is it possible to create a dropdown list within AccountRight for the description field on service invoices.  Our invoices have a lot of repetitive entries and would be a lot easier and quicker if there was a drop dowl list on service invoices
