Hi there, it would be really useful if we could remove the need for / in the date format.  For data entry it's just another three key strokes that are totally unnecessary.  If the data entry is DDMMYYYY surely the system can conver that?

Also, you now have to scroll down and it is a two mouse click rather than one mouse click to Save and Add.  If you are a touch typist it is a pain to have to keep going to the mouse.

 

"Expenses date keying"

Current Status: Done
Last Changed: June 2021

Hi Everyone


Dates in MYOB Essentials can be entered without the need of adding the slash i.e. DDMMYYYY. For example, 01062021 will give you 01/07/2021

 

Note: This change is available for the new MYOB Essentials platform. Existing (original) MYOB Essentials platform users will be migrated across to the new platform in due course based on the complexity of their MYOB Essentials product level. At the time of posting, migrations are already underway.
