2020.6 Release Notes



The 2020.6 release adds a wide range of new features across the entire MYOB Advanced system.

For full information on all of the changes, see the 2020.6 Release Notes documentation:

New Features

Business Event Notifications

You can now use the powerful Business Event features included in MYOB Advanced to alert users when records are modified, replacing the change notification features that were present in earlier versions. In an upgrade to Advanced 2020.6 or later, any record change notifications that you’d set up previously will be converted to business events automatically. See the video below for more information:

Automatic Table Join Suggestions

MYOB Advanced 2020.6 includes automatic table join suggestion features, which let you configure relations between tables quickly and accurately when setting up a generic inquiry. These features remove the need to look up data access classes and fields to see how tables should be joined, and ensures that relations are set up correctly, which helps to prevent the generic inquiry from returning duplicate or incorrect results. See the video below for more information:
