Contacts: Ability to share between MYOB Essentials business

Dear Product Developers at MYOB,


You need to enable the transfer of contacts between MYOB Essentials accounts. We've closed one business and opened another one, but the customer base remains the same. We need to import our contacts into our new subsription ASAP. I was only able to export them as a PDF file from the old subscription, but the file in this format is useless as the data can't be imported from PDF files. I was just informed by a moderator that such transfers are impossible and one has to do this manually. Is this a cruel joke? There are hundreds of them. We all have better things to do with our time than re-entering data manually. 

Thank you.


"Contacts Database Transfer between MYOB Essentials accounts"


  • As an organisation we have several entities [companies in MYOB]. At the moment when we enter the clients' details such as ABN / ACN for one of our entities, we are not able to reflect those details in another profile for the client who we are servicing through a separate entity. 


    It would be very helpful if we were able to have the clients' complete informtion when reporting for our different entities [company]. 

  • I'm in the same situation 
    Please tell me this is possible now ??! 
    manual entry of contacts will take days I don't have. .
