Ability to take a photo of receipts and attach to transaction (via app?)

I'd like the ability to take a photo of receipts and then attach them to the transaction in the banking screen.  This will make it really easy for businesses to keep their records and also will help bookkeepers and accountants when working on their client's file.


I've got a few clients who would really benefit from this as they are constantly travelling and loosing the actual receipts.  It will also save the accountants asking for copies of invoices if they are already attached to the transaction.


I've recently spoken with a couple of people who raved about this functionality that their online software provider has and it would be great if MYOB's customers could do the same.

Current Status: Coming Soon
Last Changed: November 2013

Many thanks for the suggestion. We encourage other users who would like this functionality to add their votes and comments.

I've seen requests for this dating back at least six years, but I can't find any progress on it.  Xero now has it and WaveApps has had it for many years.  When will this happen for MYOB clients?
