If something didn't go right during the initial connection, please check the following solutions.

Not all data imported from MYOB

Ocerra syncs only recently used data. Therefore, some components may not be imported during the initial sync process. To fix this, update the Last Sync date to an older date, save and click Sync again. If new information has been imported, you will see a notification at the top right corner. For example:

In some case, MYOB may require changing the Last Sync year to 1999. If still no luck, please contact support and will assist with importing all the required data from MYOB.

Timeout errors during sync process

During sync process you may encounter a MYOB timeout error, it will pop up at the left top corner. No troubleshooting is required as it usually resolved automatically. Please do not keep clicking the sync button, just give MYOB some time to provide the requested information and you will see it in Ocerra in a few minutes.
