It is important to note that MYOB has undertaken a major upgrade of their MYOB Essentials accounting package.

Sometimes errors can cause a scheduled report to fail. When this occurs, we understand that it may be important to know about this failure in a timely manner, so you can retry the report or contact Technical Support.

To help alert you to failed reports, we have added a new ‘Status' column to the Scheduled Reports table so you can clearly see which reports are Active, or have Failed.
