I need to be able add further hours to Time biiling invoices which are already saved.

The Work In Progress(WIP) button needs to be available in 2012 as it was in Version 19!


Or supply a solution to this if one is available in the current version, as I can't see a way.


Please work on getting this functionality back, as it is a necessity!



"Please put the WIP Button back on Time Billing invoices."

Current Status: Done
Last Changed: November 2017

Hi Everyone

Thank you for your showing your support for this idea.

I'm pleased to announce that as of AccountRight 2017.2 the WIP (Work in progress) button is now included in the Enter Sales window using a Time Billing layout.

To find out more information on obtaining AccountRight 2017.2 please see AccountRight 2017.2 now available.

Yes please - updated information required. I have clients sitting on 19.5 who won't upgrade without this feature.

YES please....with v19.5 it was easy to use WIP button and add unbilled time to an invoice right there and then, whilst billing items and so on.  Can't fathom how working online would lessen the neccessity for this feature.

Interesting that this is called an improvement that is being looked into when it was a feature for years  Why was it decided to downgrade the system?

Can anyone advise on the status of the WIP button? We have just upgraded to AccountRight Plus and this button going missing has just about made us regret the whole decision!!!

Groan, I am left in the dark ages becuase of this WIP button not being on MYOB and I am paying premium rates whilst not being able to upgrade or go online.  Can anybody that has continued to upgrade let me know if they have found a satisfactory solution to work without the wip button.

Hello @jenniek


We understand that this feature is important to you. Unfortunately bringing back the WIP button is not currently listed for one of our planned updates. However it is still being considered.
