Re: MAS 4 still using freeform

Hi @AnnaB

 

Thanks for your post.

 

As you are probably aware AE MAS Freeform has been superseded by Reporter, so we advise moving over to Reporter for generating Financial Reports. Reporter is the reporting software that we maintain with annual compliance updates, compared to Freeform for which we no longer provide updates for.

 

Reporter sits over the top of your existing AE MAS install. To get up and running install Reporter 3.3, 3.3.7, 3.4 and then the latest version 3.4.3.

 

Note that in the coming weeks we are making available Reporter 3.4.4 which will have compliance updates for the 2015 Financial Year.

 

Regards

thank you for your response.  I realise MYOB is no longer supporting freeform.   We are not moving to reporter and are continuing to utilise freeform.  We have too much time invested in the freeform to move to reporter.  I just wanted options from others who are continuing to utilise freeform.

Re: MAS 4 still using freeform

Hi @AnnaB,

 

Unfortunately once you install System Release 8.1, Freeform will no longer function, even on 32 bit machines. As of Tax 2014.2, the combined installer loads in System Release 8.1, likewise AE Tax 2015.0.

 

In other words, once you upgrade your AE Tax, regardless Freeform will stop working.

 

Sorry for the bad news.

 

Cheers.

Thanks for the reply.

We are using system release 8.1 on a 32 bit standalone machine with no worries.  will have to check what version of tax 2014 I have installed on that machine and make sure I don't update it.

Re: MAS 4 still using freeform

Hi @Anna

Thanks for the update.

Further to Freeform no longer being supported by MYOB. Whilst MYOB have not directly deactivated Freeform from being used, it should be noted that MYOB will not have tested nor developed Freeform further with supported operating systems in mind.

It is possible that an existing install of Freeform may cease to work on a supported operating system.

We recommend you consider looking at Reporter as a way of moving forward as Reporter is fully supported.

Regards

Danny
