Migrating from Accountright 19.15 to 2018.4

I want to try out the 2018.4 to confirm/learn features before moving my live file to the new software. How do I do this without confusing myself on versions and IDs of various files? I understand some sort of conversion is required. When I finish scratching around with this file, I will abandon it and properly migrate my live file over.

Is there a conversion cost involved?

Hi @BOTP

 

Just test it really really really thoroughly.

I migrated across to AR2018.4 from v19.15 and its the biggest regret I have.

Read the various posts from a number of people discussing the issues.

Its slower, there are plenty of V19 features that you might be used to that didn't make it into AR2018, it crahses on us 5+ times a day, the extra time needed each day is 60+ minutes and the number of mistakes we make is growing.

Just make sure you test everything you use in v19 and AR2018.4 before going live.

Would even suggest running both side by side for a week.

Have you raised this issue as a bug with MYOB? They are basically forcing me into this move by cutting out payroll self reporting, and tax table updates. I tried 2015.xx a few years ago and I could not get it to work AT ALL. Totally useless. 1 minute to enter a line of data.

Hi @BOTP

 

Yes, MYOB are aware of all the issues we are facing.

I was forced across to AR2018.4 from v19 due to the daily crashes in V19.

 

One on 20 crashes would corrupt the data file and we would need to restore the last night backup and re-entered  data. Doing this we would often miss re-entering an invoice and started to lose money.
