Setup leave submission | MYOB guide

How it works

When using Employment Hero with MYOB Account Right if you want your employees to submit leave through Employment Hero's leave submission feature, then you will need to configure both platforms to enable this feature.  Once this configuration is complete, your employees can then submit leave requests in Employment Hero, with these requests flowing through to your MYOB Account Right platform.


You can configure what leave balances employees have visibility on when they submit a leave request in Employment Hero. To read further information on this process, refer to the following guide.

What you need to do

There are two steps that an administrator needs to complete, when enabling leave submissions in Employment Hero when connected to MYOB Account Right. An administrator needs to complete these actions on both the Employment Hero and MYOB Account Right platforms. The two steps are: 

Step 1: Enabling leave in MYOB Account Right

The first step is to enable using timesheets within your MYOB Account Right platform. The steps on how to undertake this are:

  1. Log in to your MYOB Account Right account.
  2. Click the Setup button.
  3. Click the Preferences button.
  4. Click the System button.
  5. Click the I Use Timesheets for tick box.
  6. Click the OK button.
Step 2: Enabling leave in Employment Hero

Since Employment Hero is the source of truth for information such as company settings, payroll settings, and employee file data; it will require you to re-synchronise your platforms to import the updated pay category settings. 

Once you complete this update, you can then select what pay categories your employees will use within Employment Hero when submitting a leave request. The steps on how to undertake this are:

  1. Click the Settings menu
  2. Click the Pay Categories submenu.
  3. Click the Update from Payroll button.
  4. Click the Leave Request tick box next to each pay category that you want to use as a leave submission category.

    Helpful Hint

    Once you have selected the required pay categories, they will have a blue tick next to them. This shows the pay category is now active and is selectable by an employee when they submit a leave request within Employment Hero.
