The New User Interface – MYOB Advanced

MYOB Advanced Tips and Tricks #2

A year ago, the upgraded version of MYOB Advanced (powered by Acumatica) came with a new User Interface (UI) as an option. Some clients may have been reluctant at the time to use the new User Interface for a lack of familiarity. Other clients may have upgraded but are not aware of the finer details with the new User Interface.

This blog is to provide some tips and tricks with the new User Interface so that you get the best out of using MYOB Advanced. If you currently don’t have the new User Interface and would like it, please contact Kilimanjaro Consulting MYOB Advanced Support on 1300 857 464 .
