Hi, 

I've been struggling with MYOB for a while trying to make the custom report I want and finally dropped the idea.

To create a custom report: I need to open a prebuilt report, then select the field I want/don't want and then save as a custom report. 

Main problem is predesigned reports have a limited list of available fields to customise the report. And I lose time going from one to another to finally find the predesigned report that is close to what I need and then customise it. Even so, result is not perfect and I still have a lot of work to do on the file.

 

I would be awesome if we could create a custom report from scratches without being linked to a predesigned one. Then we could select just the fields we need, order them the way we want and finally have a real full custom report that fits our needs !

Hi Jennifer_Kelly,

 

Thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately that means we have to go and spend additional $$ for functionality that should be available out of the box.  These 3rd party ad-ons are extremely expensive if you're only requiring 1 thing like I do in this case.  It may be justifiable for @okcorale however for a small business it's not.

 

$17/mo for me to get access to 1 field in a report that I might run a few times a month doesn't stack up.

 

Just further frustration and questions as to why we bothered moving away from Quickbooks which seemed to offer a lot more functionality.

 

Thanks

Hi Jennifer_Kelly and @DanT

 

I agree with @DanT as to the added costs for the add-ons. There are fields in reporting options ie Custom List/Custom Fields that I can see what they would be used for generally. I have had to use custom fields in the "Item" to get a report showing Supplier No, List Price and Discount which I have had to manually fill in for each of the 2000+ stock items I have.  There is no standard report that includes these three vital data fields in the options. I have been using MYOB inception and still have my Plus4 version for my own private work. This new platform is just a nightmare.

Hi @okcorale,

 

You're lucky, I'm not even able to move to the latest version and am still stuck on v19 as MYOB still don't support multi-currency customers.  This product has been out for a number of years and it beggars believe that they still haven't delivered this basic and core functionality for an island nation where import/export is so much of many businesses requirements.

Yes this would be a great idea. Reporting and the ability (inability) to extract/upload information to MYOB would be one of the major reasons people leave this platform. I
