One of the handiest features of using document in MYOB Practice is the ability to add document profiles.

Add and edit profiles. If you add a new profile, you have the option to add a different client so that the same document applies to multiple clients. Add identifiers to help categorise your documents.

Profile the documents by client, year, service and period, to organise and quickly find the right documents for different work. You can use these profile details when searching and filtering.

Document type

Select a document type. This helps categorise the document by what type of work it's associated with. For example, if you're uploading a legal correspondence, you might want to add a document type of Correspondence and a sub type of Legal. A document can only have one type assigned to it.


To tell the difference between two versions of the same document, see the date and time in the version history. Click the expand icon () to view any associated notes and download any version of the document.


See who the document was shared with when the document was published to portal, and if the document is part of any tasks.
