User Access: Restrict access to payroll should flow through to electronic payments and bank register
Version 19 of MYOB had the correct and compliant access set up so that users with bank access but no payroll access were not able to drill down and see payroll information from the bank transactions.  Account Right does not have this VERY IMPORTANT feature????
 
User access has been restricted from the payroll area & that appears to work if they look at the payroll accounts but not for the bank transactions drill down into payroll.

Payroll is paid via electronic payments and the net pay for all staff shows up there.

 

Please rectify this as soon as possible.  Confidentiallity is important in the workplace.


thanks

Hi JRG,

 

We had the same issue and couldn't find a way to solve it. Payroll could be seen in electronic payment account and bank register report.

 

Could MYOB advise how to do with it?

 

Thank you

Agree withthe above comment. We're a small/medium business where we need staff to see deposits to process orders, but don't want them to have access to payments made from our account - which includes staff wages.

Hi MYOB Team,

 

Can you please advise on whether there's any way to restrict the access on the mentioned issue? Thanks

To allow every one access to confidential/ private payments is crazy.

Next the staff will be saying why am I worth less the the other staff. 

I think this is a very important issue that myob need to address quck smart as there programe has allowed a backdoor to infomation that should not be available

Unbelievable that this feature is still not improved - or left as it was back in good old V19 days. In today's world of confidentiality this request should be a PRIORITY!!

No access to Payroll - tick - means NO access.

I do not want staff to access my details - under any circumstances and I am sure your programmers/developers would want their payroll to be just as confidential.

Earlier suggestion was to run Payroll in another program - yes, quite probably Xero!!!!

How absolutely archiac that this has STILL not been rectified. It is an invasion of privacy that ALL aspects of payroll cannot be isolated in this program. Obviously not important enough for MYOB to rectify this unprofessional oversight.

Archaic that this important feature of confidentiality is STILL MISSING!! We have asked repeatedly and still nothing is done. Payroll should be completely isoloated so that only a select few can access the information, but others still have the ability to work effectively with the program.

Come on MYOB this is a COMPLETE & UTTER design fault. Will it take someone having an employee dispute / leave over seeing this information and being annoyed their pay isn't the same as someone elses & the company blaming MYOB for you to do something about it. Not only was this change not clearly communicated when it came through I cannot believe it has not yet been rectified. We have had issues in the past with staff seeing what other staff earn. Not good enough & really thinking about moving software purely based on this. It is a joke to be honest. Clearly MYOB no longer care what their customers want / need.

Still no action on this important security breach - payroll information is critically important as a confidential matter between management and the staff member ! What on earth are the programmers doing if NOT keeping confidential information safe? It begs to query where the "improvements" are to the overall MYOB program is this issue is STILL not rectified! Remember Mind Your Own Business not TEYOB!!!
