Anything else you want to tell us about the help?
Got a supplier invoice taking up space in your email inbox? Or adding to the clutter on your desk?
There's a really easy way you can store your supplier invoices and receipts in MYOB Essentials — use the In tray.
As the name implies, In tray is way to store your documents — but in this case they're stored online with your MYOB Essentials business.
And the best part—you don't need to set up anything.
Give it a go
- Click In tray then click Upload documents.
Choose a document stored on your computer. You can add documents up to 10MB in size, in these formats: PDF, JPG, JPEG, TIFF, TIF, and PNG.
Click Open. Voila! The document is now in your In tray.
Turn a document into a transaction
The really clever part of In tray is that once you've uploaded a document, you can use the smarts in MYOB Essentials to do some of the data entry for you.
Select the document you just uploaded then click one of these options:
|Create new Spend money||Enter money you spend for a purchase that's not a payment to a supplier for a bill. You might use a spend money to pay your telephone bills, bank charges or charity donations.|
|Create new bill||Record a purchase you make from your suppliers for business supplies.|
|Link to existing bill||Attach the document to an existing supplier purchase.|
MYOB Essentials scans what's in the document to help you complete the transaction, saving you some keystrokes.
For example, click Create new bill. MYOB Essentials creates a bill and automatically fills it in with information from the document:
