If you have worked in an office you know how frustrating IT issues are. If you are now working from home you know how frustrating IT support issues are. If you have ever experienced an IT support issue installing software (like MYOB AccountRight) you know how frustrating IT issues are.
We’ve added some new training materials in the Advanced Excel course relating to getting and transforming data and using the Power Query. It’s very relevant in our current data driven environment where we have many sources of data that we need to make sense of. Employers are looking for good staff with Microsoft Excel Advanced Certificate skills.
Power Query enables you to query large datasets from multiple sources and derive meaningful information and insights. Turn Excel into a Business Intelligence system or data analysis tool for research data! This NEW Excel Advanced Training Course material is available for FREE if you are a current student and for a very low cost if you’ve enrolled into Excel with us in the past.
One of the most publicised recent acquisitions for Xero was Canadian Receipt Capture, Scan and Coding software HubDoc. Rather than send a “bank-like” email informing users that the monthly fee to use Xero was increasing, Xero “sold” the value of the pesky increase of $2 as a saving of $27.50 because they included the Receipt Capture features in the software! That’s smart marketing.
In the meantime, MYOB forged an alliance with Bunnings as every large fintech, accounting and banking organisation tries to get into the Smart Receipt marketing at the source. Here are some of the things that have happened.
Are you only using 10% of Microsoft Office? Are you taking 2 hours to do something that can actually be done in 30 minutes? Microsoft Office software had a feature that could identify your productivity score in reports to managers.
The technology was designed as a sales tool for Microsoft to help identify software that could be utilised better at Microsoft corporate clients but it unveiled a whole privacy issue.
Fortnite publisher Epic Games is splitting their software into two versions because of a fight they’ve decided to pick with Apple over the fees that Apple earn from apps in their Appstore. MYOB recently made a decision to discontinue their Mac version of accounting software called MYOB AccountEdge because of a change in the iOS software that runs most Apple PC’s.
Accounting Edge has been the long time relative of MYOB AccountRight for Windows devices and if a feature was available in one version it was often quite similar in AccountingEdge, but Apple made a change and MYOB can no longer update their software to keep up – NO WONDER they’ve been pushing their “Xero competing” version, MYOB Essentials so hard! Here’s what they had to say. Continue reading Sorry Apple, but MYOB is opting out of AccountEdge because of Catalina
Two of Australia’s newest billionaires Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar have become wealthy because they created software that enables companies like MYOB manage a team of developers, designers and analysts in the pursuit of continuously adding enhancements, updating the software, fixing bugs and providing support for their MYOB Tax software via their company Atlassian, but I digress.
The reason for this post is because of obscure behaviour by MYOB regarding their essentials software and a recent upgrade they performed on the MYOB Essentials software.
There’s new content in our Advanced Microsoft Excel Course about Excel Macros that automate the reformatting of database information, exported from Xero Accounting so it can easily be imported into MailChimp for email marketing.
If any of these words don’t make sense to you, you need to upskill to get up to speed because this terminology is becoming common in most workplaces.

THE DEFINITION OF a training course has changed a lot over the last 20 years. With new online internet technologies comes new ways of learning. The concept of the “micro course” is gaining momentum as students look for information when they need it, known in the industry as “just in time learning”.
There are lots of time and cost pressures for students as they juggle part-time work, kids and mortgage payments. As a result, we’re launching a brand new Online Training Service for past EzyLearn students AND new students — EzyLearn’s Video Training Library Membership.
One thing is essential when you operate a small business with staff — that is your payroll obligations. I wrote about a hairdressing salon owner a few months ago who told me how easy payroll was to manage using a printed timesheet book. However, most tech-savvy people prefer to use software.
