MYOB Essentials

Purchases: Ability to generate a purchase order




1 Post

Dear MYOB Team


LiveAccounts is a great package for small businesses and we love it.


One additional  feature will make it an awesome product: The ability to raise purchase orders then convert them to payable invoices once received.


Eliminating the double data entry


Many thanks

I love assisting my clients who use Essentials - but the Purchase Order functionality is soooo important these days.  I would really love to see this added.

I would like to see purchase orders added to essentials. i was willing to upgrade to accounts right in order to do this however the programs arent compatible and i cant transfer my data between the 2 programs.

Hi there, I would love to see Purchase orders made available in MYOB Essentials. I think MYOB is great but that is defenitely a shortfall!! Any idea when we could expect this?
