Before you jump into Client Accounting, make sure you've set up Client Accounting for your practice.
Installing and licensing was only one part of the initial setup. To make sure you're able to use the full functions and benefits of Client Accounting, you'll need to configure your Client Accounting Settings.
The Client Accounting Settings can be accessed via the Maintenance Map of your Accountants Office (AO) or Accountants Enterprise (AE) software. In these settings, you'll enable MYOB ledger and enter the location of any AccountRight Classic programs you have installed.
Almost everything you need to prepare your practice for Client Accounting is available in the Maintenance Map of Accountants Office (AO) and Accountants Enterprise (AE).
In this workflow, we'll show you how to configure your Client Accounting Settings and some additional tasks such as how to secure your client's data.
These tasks require Administrator permissions.
To perform these tasks, make sure you're logged into AE or AO as an Administrator or Super User.
- From within AE or AO, click the Maintenance menu and choose Maintenance Map.
- On the TASKS bar, click Client Accounting. The Client Accounting page appears.
- Click Client Accounting settings. The Client Accounting Settings window appears.
Click Enable AO/AE Ledger and Assets. A message appears, confirming that the ledger is enabled.
If you have any AccountRight Classic (version 19 or earlier) client files, to use Client Accounting with their AccountRight Classic file we'll need to know where the version of the AccountRight software that opens the file is located.
You can use the ellipses () buttons to browse to the installed location and select the myob.exe or myobp.exe file for the installed version.
By default, AccountRight Classic is installed to the C:\ drive of the computer where the installation has been run. The AccountRight Classic install is a client-only install, meaning that there is no separate server and workstation components to be installed.
To apply the changes click OK to this window, then log out of AO or AE, and log back in.
