The 2020.1 release of AccountRight offers further bank feeds automation, enhancements to the MYOB Invoices app and In Tray, as well as performance and workflow improvements: 


Auto-payment of bank feeds transactions –– Automatically record payments to invoices and bills that have been automatically approved in your bank feed.   


Create suppliers in the MYOB Invoice app –– If you love working on the go, you’ll love it even more with the ability to view and add suppliers in the MYOB Invoice app. 


Auto Forwarding to the In Tray from Gmail –– Supplier documents sent to your Gmail address can now be automatically forwarded to your In Tray. 


Workflow and performance improvements –– What’s a new release without a bit of fine-tuning? 


Auto-payment of bank feeds transactions  


In AccountRight 2019.4, we added the ability to automatically approve matched transactions in your bank feeds, saving you one more step in bank reconciliation.  


In 2020.1, we take that automation a step further.


You can now set up AccountRight to automatically record payments to those automatically approved invoices and bills. 


This means that if a payment in your bank feed has been automatically matched and approved, AccountRight will now record the payment to it. The type of payment transaction that AccountRight creates depends on the type transaction that has been approved. A Receive Payment transaction is recorded against a customer invoice, a Pay Bills transaction is recorded against a supplier bill.  


So not only is the transaction ready to be reconciled, it’s been closed off too, saving you even more data entry.  


To turn this on, go to the Setup menu > Preferences Banking and select the new preference, Auto-allocate bank transactions to outstanding MYOB invoices or bills:

Note that: 

  • your file needs to be online to use this feature 
  • you also need to select the Auto-approve bank transactions matched to MYOB transactions preference.

Create suppliers in the MYOB Invoice app  


Working on the go is just part of life these days. That’s why the MYOB Invoice app is fast becoming the must-have app for AccountRight users.  


Not only can you create invoices and quotes and manage your customers, but you can now add and view your suppliers too. Contact management has never been easier.

All changes are synced with your online AccountRight file so you’re always working with the latest contact list. 

And it won’t stop here. We have lots more enhancements in the pipeline, so keep your MYOB Invoice app up to date.

Auto Forwarding to the In Tray from Gmail  


It’s easy to overlook supplier documents, like bills and receipts, that land in your email. Wouldn’t it be great if you could securely store those documents with your books without you having to lift a finger? 


The security requirements of Gmail have prevented users from setting up automatic forwarding of supplier documents to AccountRight’s In Tray.  


But with AccountRight 2020.1, you can now choose to forward all new attachments, or just certain ones. 


To set this up, enter your MYOB In Tray email address as a forwarding address in Gmail’s settings and send a verification code to In Tray Wait for MYOB to send the verification code back and then enter the code in your

Gmail account settings.

If you only want to forward certain kinds of messages to In Tray, you can create a filter in Gmail for these messages.
