I know it's not a specific product idea but I find the notifications of new badges frustrating and disruptive. That little excited "yippee someone replied" Smiley Happy quickly changes to "oh, I just earned another badge" Smiley Sad . Meanwhile, I could have kept working on what I was doing.

 

This is not a friendly, casual, like-minded, same interests chatroom, it's business. I'm here because I need help with some other little irritating bug I've found in AR, not because I need a virtual badge to make me feel good.

Hmmm. Rather ironic that someone kudoing (? is that a word?) this suggestion triggered another badge. Smiley Very Happy

I agree - I have used MYOB for over 20 years - I do not need badges and yippees - I would rather whoever spent all the time and effort to make software like this to have spent more time fixing long term errors - I dont need to be an experienced cover user or receive emojis etc - I want the issues that affect day to day running of a business.  Another words fix Job Cost transactions - fix Pay Liaibilities - fix problems and functionality not colours and pretty screens!

 

And totally agree this is not a chat room - it is the only avenue that MYOB says has to be used to receive enough votes/comments for changes to be made - really - We use MYOB as a business not Facebook, Instagram etc !!!

That works @101 but you still get the little number on your profile badge top right to make you think there's something useful to look at, only to find out you earned another badge. Smiley Sad

Agree. NOT useful.
