Larger range of shading and characters

  • Foreign characters on key fields (ie stock description)

Importing into the stock movement screen

Bulk stock uploads used to be relatively painful as users had to key the items and quantities in one by one on the stock item adjustments screen. Now you can import from a separate file or copy and paste from your clipboard, enabling data aggregation before loading into MYOB Exo.

Spell check on memo fields

Don’t you hate spelling errors on your sales order confirmations or invoices? Exo’s in-built spell-check function provides users with the support they need to get it right the first time.

Invoice Search on the debtor payments screen

This feature now allows you to search invoice numbers regardless of the current debtor selection, making it quick and easy!

Foreign Characters FAQ

In the past, we could only show foreign characters in a printed report or on invoices. With Unicode built into the new infrastructure, we can have foreign characters on the screen which helps usability.

Business Alerts

During times of increased data security awareness, we thought it would be useful to remind everyone of business alerts and how to provide additional protection for your data.

Business alerts tend to be created by advanced users that have at least completed Business Tools training. To see how the business alert function works, watch the demonstration of all the new features of Exo 2020.1 here.

Please note you should have some training in the use of Business Alerts prior to attempting this. Call our friendly MYOB Exo consultant team for assistance if required on 1300 857 464.
