MYOB Exo 2019.4 Release Notes
MYOB Exo 2019.4 Release Notes
MYOB Exo 2019.4 is the latest version of MYOB Exo.
MYOB have released a few versions of their Exo product late this year – 2019.1 , 2019.2 and most recently 2019.4.
There are some new helpful features both on screen and behind the scenes.
The bulk of the changes documented in the MYOB Exo 2019.4 Release Notes are in the database and relate to how text fields are stored.
These database changes are detailed in the Exo Business 2019.4 Database Upgrade whitepaper.
Some of the new features include:
The spelling checker works with note, narrative, memo, and message fields throughout the system.
Invoice Search on Debtor and Creditor Payments Screens
You can now search for debtor and creditor invoices based on their invoice numbers or their transaction references.
Greater Control Over Automatic Period Locking at Month End
The MYOB Exo 2019.4 Release Notes advise that MYOB have added the Auto Lock Periods option to the Period Statuses screen in Exo Business Configurator. Previously, ledgers automatically locked whenever a period became two periods old.
Minor Changes to the Look and Feel
This release introduces minor tweaks to the look and feel of the user interface throughout Exo Business. Other than subtle changes to the shading, colour, and the width of lines on some screens, most users won’t notice these changes.
The most noticeable change to the user interface is in the Scheduler. The Scheduler component now has an updated layout, its look and feel mimicking the latest editions of Microsoft Outlook on which it is modelled.
Enhancements to the Components Grid on the Bill of Materials Screen
MYOB have made several changes to the Components grid on the Bill of Materials screen in Release 2019.4. They have removed the 200-line limitation on the grid……As you move down in the grid, Exo loads more lines (if there are any) when you reach the 200th line.
Pasting to the Bill of Materials – Components Grid from Excel or a CSV File
If you have bill of materials component information in Excel or in a CSV file, you can now paste it into the Components grid.
Length of Supplier Stock Codes Updated to Match Stock Code Length
In previous versions of MYOB Exo Business, the width of the Supplier Code field was 15 characters. MYOB have now expanded the Supplier Code field to the width of the stock code in the system (usually 23 characters) if it detects that the code’s length is still set to 15 characters. If the width of the Supplier Code field is the same or greater than the width of the stock code width, it is not expanded.
Unicode Support for Emailing Reports as PDF Files
Clarity now supports Unicode. To display Unicode characters in a report saved as a PDF file, you must enable the profile setting Force all PDF exports from Clarity to use Unicode option in MYOB Exo Configurator. To display Unicode characters in a report saved as a PDF file, you must enable the profile setting “Force all PDF exports from Clarity to use Unicode” option in MYOB Exo Configurator.
Opportunity Stage Name Now Saved as Mixed Case
In previous versions of MYOB Exo Business, entering a name in the Opportunity stage name field on the Setup Opportunity Stage screen forced it to be all upper case. This now retains mixed case when you save it.
Bug Fixes and Resolved Issues
As well as some new bells and whistles, plus some tinkering under the hood, the new MYOB Exo 2019.4 Release Notes suggest that some welcome bug fixes and known issues have been included in the MYOB Exo 2019.4 release.
