A couple of tweaks

This morning we had a maintenance outage – some tweaking and fine tuning that our team does to keep the machine running as quickly and smoothly as possible. We also  ‘sneaked’ in a couple of updates arising from feedback from our last release.

  • Firstly, when importing the general ledger exported from Xero into MYOB Accountants Office (the software many accountants use to do end of year reporting) it seems that a particular setting was required in MYOB to understand the Xero date format. We’ve changed the date format exported so that MYOB AO understands it now without you having to do anything about it.
  • Secondly, we’d removed the decimal places on PDF reports so that all numbers showed as whole numbers due to a high demand for this. We had feedback that on some reports this wasn’t desirable so we’re taking another look at this. In the meantime we’ve  put the decimals back on the PDF versions of sales tax reports (GST Return, VAT Return, BAS/IAS and Sales Tax Summary).

Thanks again for your feedback, it helps us make a great product if we know what does and doesn’t work for you.

An update – Denis uncovered an issue where certain reports added into the multi-page Annual Report cause the decimal points to display again. Nice find! The product team are onto it.
