Please implement a facility to bulk update items in MYOB Essentials using the import function. I have a problem with items not being available from the drop-down list in the Expenses>New screen when adding a new expense. This is because they have been imported with a Buy Price (something missing from the sample file for imports by the way). An option to handle duplicates within the import process (and allow replace/reject) is a pretty standard requirement I believe and should be available if MYOB Essentials wants to be treated as a serious business tool.

Hi @Myces Thanks for the feedback in regards to MYOB Essentials and the ability to update an item via importing. I encourage other users to vote and comment on this idea if they would like to see the feature included in future releases. A current workaround would be to deleting the item or making it inactive and then import that item again or manually change the items.

Sorry - typo in my original post should read 

 

This is because they have been imported WITHOUT a Buy Price (something missing from the sample file for imports by the way).

 

Thanks

yes, I have really do need the buy price an buy unit option for this to funtion well for my business, have spent several hours attempting to correct existing expence items only to realise that it is pointless without the buy price field in the import templates.

Do you know if this fixed yet? I assumed that the Standard Cost column was the correct collumn, though it doesn't seem to work. 


I tried with and without the $ in the column.

Hi @montage

As mentioned by others you are not able to import the buying price of an item. As such currently this idea has been marked as Under consideration. We are unable to provide a timeframe to you will be able to update items and import the buying price of an item. However in saying that we are still encouraging clients to vote and comment if required for this idea.

Why after two years this doesn't seem to be resolved.

Agree with myecs, or just have the option with a tick box next to the items that you need to bulk delete, and matbe a previous & next button when view item details so you can move to the next item in the list!
