MYOB Advanced Workforce Management 8.2 December 2021

The 8.2 release includes improvements and bug fixes.

What's new?

New filters

New filters were added in the Management > Employee view. To display them, click the down arrow icon (

) next to the filters.

Multi-factor authentication

In accordance with local laws, we already enforce multi-factor authentication (MFA) for managers who have payroll access. This release allows users to enable MFA for themselves, if they want to better secure their accounts. To open MFA settings, click your username in the top right corner and choose My Profile, then click Settings.


  • Employee reference number length is now configurable and can be from 4 to 10 digits. The default is 4 digits for all existing companies. You can find this setting in Management > Settings > Company settings > Employee reference length. This setting is useful for companies using integrations and willing to maintain the same ID format across multiple systems.
  • MYOB Advanced Workforce Management has increased its support of shift patterns (also known as standard hours) from a maximum of two weeks to a maximum of four weeks.
  • We've added a column and filter for Leave Rules in the employee list.
  • In the Documents and Notes section of an employee's profile, we've changed the wording of Employee onboarding signatures to Employee onboarding documents.


  • Modal windows no longer close when clicking outside the modal.
  • In companies with locked positions, employees now only get notifications for available shifts for their specific position.
  • Shifts in the same roster column are now sorted by start time, then end time.
