From a browser, smartphone or tablet

To do this, you need to have installed the latest version of AccountRight and to have upgraded your company file. Company files on older versions can't be accessed in a browser.

Go to app.myob.com and log in with your MYOB details. If you haven’t signed into your MYOB account yet, you will need to enter your account's email address and password (the same details you use to sign into the my.MYOB website), and then click Sign In.

After entering your email address and password, you might also be prompted to enter a verification code. This is part of two-factor authentication to protect your online data.

Different look, same data

When you access an AccountRight company file in a browser, you'll notice that some things are familiar and others are a little different.

The first thing you'll notice is the dashboard. This provides you with a simple, easy-to-read snapshot of how your business is going.

Across the top of the screen there are various menus corresponding to the command centres in AccountRight.

Looking for employees? Go to the Payroll menu > Employees.

Even though some things are different, you're working on exactly the same information that's in your AccountRight software. You can switch between the browser and your software and your information is kept up to date.

Take the time to click menus and view pages and explore the various functions to see what's familiar and what's different.

Note that some features are still on the way.

Need help?

At the top right of any page, click the question mark to open the help panel.

You'll see info relating to the page you're on, without having to leave your software. Depending on the page, you might also see some frequently asked questions or links to more detailed help topics.

  FAQs


If I use AccountRight in a browser, can I also use my AccountRight software?

If I use AccountRight in a browser, can I also use my AccountRight software?

Yes. You can decide which way is the best for you to work – in a browser or in your software or both. As company file data is stored in the cloud, AccountRight accesses and updates the same data whether from the browser or your installed software.

This information is synchronised immediately, so if you make a changes in the browser (for example, adding an invoice), then you would see that change in your AccountRight software (and vice versa).

Note that some windows in your AccountRight software need to be manually refreshed by clicking the refresh icon .

Why do I keep getting kicked out of the browser?

Why do I keep getting kicked out of the browser?

We're aware of an issue that can result in your MYOB software kicking you out unexpectedly after 15-30 minutes, forcing you to sign back in. This is caused by a Google Chrome feature released in February. Other browsers may have this feature turned on too.

For information on how to resolve this, see MYOB users getting logged out.
