 Quick Tip Six: Shortcut links to multi databases

You can store your Exo Business database name and username in your ‘Exo Shortcut’ so it will always default to the right database and username.   Right-click on the shortcut and select Properties. This saves time when opening your MYOB Exo system, as it will default to the selected database.

Are you using the latest version of MYOB Exo?

MYOB Exo has a long and rich history, from its early days as ExoNet up to the latest releases. Each new version adds new features and functions to your already powerful system. The latest update to the software will always give you benefits over the older versions. Added functionality may be as simple as an improved workflow, a new widget, a tidier report, or more complex functionality like Bank Feeds. Access to these features is included in your Annual Licence Fee (ALF), so you are missing out on added value by not keeping your system up to date. By regularly updating your software, you ensure your team maintains a reliable, powerful platform to suit your organisation for years to come.
Visit our MYOB Exo Version History page to read all the latest updates and features.
