Good morning


Could you kindly advise if the following items are possible in LiveAccounts - or can be added to the development list?


- Can we have recurring transactions for sales, bills, spend money & receive money


Thank you

Hi everyone, 

Thank you once again for all your comments and votes on this idea.  As we've mentioned in the past, the ability to set up recurring transactions in MYOB Essentials is a significant piece of work. While we understand and acknowledge the need for this and have this as one of our top candidates for product enhancements, we don't foresee it being delivered in the next 12 months.  Thank you for your patience.

I absolutely hate MYOB Essentials.  I was forced off AccountEdge Pro because MYOB failed to keep up with Mac software changes (that was also too much of a big project for them).  Essentials has significantly less functionality and I now need to keep manual calendar notes so that I know when to invoice my weekly, fortnightly and monthly paying clients.  So angry.  I may need to make the switch to Xero too.  MYOB are not customer-centric at all.

Wow, seeing this was a 'highly requested' feature over the years, but still nothing, combined with the worst mobile app that is pretty much featureless, it looks like it's time to move to XERO. Too bad, I've been with MYOB since 2007

Has there been any update on this? A real fundamental piece holding back the system

Thanks, the recurring transactions for entering banking information was an excellent short cut but also saved time and errors.  Grateful to have this back if possible.

I have changed over to Zero to get recurring transactions and inventory monitoring.

Very glad I made the change.  Finding many ongoing pleasant additions.

Zero is a much more highly featured product.
