It would be great to have the ability to attach pdf to sales & purchases.  Then we could do away with paperbased filing!



Current Status: Done
Last Changed: November 2014

Agreed! - This facility could also extend to include other items such as payroll where you could advise the staff of upcoming functions / training days / factory closures / holidays / PAYRISES!!!!! / bonuses etc by attaching a suitable flyer

To some extent, for many small businesses, their accounting system is at the heart of their whole administration. MYOB is the CRM, the database, the accounting programme, the mail merge application and so on. One thing that is missing is the ability to link attachments. Why bother filing and storing invoices and other documents when they can be scanned and attached to the actual transaction. When you use spend money to pay a bill you should be able to attach the supplier invoice to that transaction. Later on, when referring to the entry a user can open an attached PDF, MP3, hyperlink etc , which will give instant access to everything you could ever want to know about that payment. I see it as the ultimate filing system for a small business.

but it stall stands so to add to the votes pelase note


I'm also keen to see a saved email to provide, as well as the ability to add attachments, one of the main functions that sold me for this software was that I was told this had those abilities already. I do love the software but even quote or invoice I need to email I sent to myself and then provide my message as well as attached our Terms & Conditons, images of our product and our booking forms.

I would love the ability to do this all within MYOB.
