MYOB Integration


SoloAssist no longer supports MYOB v17, v18, v19, please upgrade to latest version of AccountRight.
The SoloAssist integration only works with MYOB My Library & Online. Unfortunately it does not work with MYOB Network Libraries.
When connecting SoloAssist to MYOB, it will not automatically send all the current entered invoices from SoloAssist to MYOB. This will need to be done in 'Cost Control' by using the 'Send To MYOB' option.
