When I demonstrated LiveAccounts early on to an accounting firm I get referrals from the initital response was "What about User Accounts and restricted access"?  Any plans on this front?

 

"User Accounts/restricting users"

Current Status: Planned
Last Changed: November 2016

Thank you all for your feedback. User access management is certainly a popular requested feature, we are pleased to let you know that our developers are targeting this in 2017.

 

Please continue casting your vote if you are interested in this idea, and leave any detailed suggestions to our developers in the comment section.

I really hope that this is sorted out soon. I have a client using Essentials and is generally happy with it but she is about to switch to Xero because she doesn't wish to have her employees able to see her bank details and payroll. I can't believe this hasn't yet been fixed. Can you indicate when this will be rectified - otherwise you will be losing even more customers to Xero because it does what they need.

Furthermore - this is such a basic necessity in an accounting program - why does this need votes? MYOB need to fast track this. People aren't bothering to vote, they are just going to Xero. Unfortunately for my client, she has already purchased Essentials and has been using it for a year. It would be very inconvenient for her to switch, but if this isn't sorted shortly, she will have no choice. Please fix it now MYOB!!!

I suggest you give restricted access to some users as an option so when my staff are doing our invoices they do not have full access to our P+L and payroll etc. 

 

Wish i had known that this was an issue before i signed up.

Does MYOB Essentials feature a "read only" user? Can it be added if not please?
