If the close button is pressed by accident, a pop up window comes up and asks if you want to back up the company file.  there is no option to cancel out of this program close function if the close button is used by accident (which is seem to do fairly often)

Current Status: Done
Last Changed: September 2013

Thanks for the fantastic idea. We would love to hear what other users think. Please keep the votes and comments coming.

Hey just wondering if it's possible to add an option for MYOB Account Right to offer a pop up warning before shutting down?


Sometimes it's easy to accidentally shut down MYOB (while actually trying to shut other open windows. So maybe a "check box" type option to allow for the "Shutting down MYOB" warning pop up to appear?

I have closed out of AccountRight many times, without knowing there was time billing open and not saved in the background. They seem to hide behind my command centre window. It would be great if there was a setting to select to avoid this.

Hi everyone,


It gives me great pleasure to inform you that the next release of AccountRight - v2016.1 will have a confirmation box when closing the application.
