MYOB allows you to create Header accounts in the Accounts List and other lists (e.g. jobs, items, categories etc)

But why does it not show these headers in the drop down boxes for ease of reference? (I know we cannot code to them, but it would be are really handy reference point).

 

For example:

 

Accounts list looks like:

Training & Development (header account)

Engineering (GL account)

Construction (GL account)

 

Staff Amenities (header account)

Engineering (GL account)

Construction (GL account)

 

Drop down box looks like:

Engineering (GL account)

Construction (GL account)

Engineering (GL account)

Construction (GL account)

(how are we supposed to easily know which account is which?)

 

I do think this would be a useful feature for making sure the correct account is quickly selected.  What do other people think? If you agree with the simple suggestion, please vote for it.

Many thanks for your feedback. This seems like a very sensible and popular idea. We will consider it for inclusion in a future update of AccountRight.

agree, as sometimes need to compare printed reports to on screen accounts list, particulary when have similar expenses for different areas (eg: property expenses for different addressess).

Agree this would be useful. Workaround of adding Header to account name

eg Staff Amenities - Engineering

ends up with some long account names!
