Using Job & Category Data in Fathom

If you're using jobs & categories in MYOB AccountRight Live, you’ll be able to bring in the job and category data into Fathom for divisional analysis and reporting. This will help you to further filter your results to gain more detailed insights from your jobs and categories.

Note: MYOB companies must be stored in MYOB AccountRight Live in order to import job and category data.

You can import up to 20 jobs & categories into Fathom for a single company when importing from MYOB AccountRight Live.


Importing Jobs & Categories from MYOB

To import the job & category data for a company:

  1. Go to 'Step 1 - Update data' in the company’s Settings

  2. Select the 'edit' button next to the 'Tracking' heading.

  3. Then, select which jobs & categories you wish to import for analysis and reporting. You can choose amaximum of 20 jobs and categories per company.

  4. After selecting the jobs and categories for import, click on ‘Confirm selection’, then 'Import' to start the import process.

    Note: Fathom will always import the company totals. Therefore, if you do not import all of the jobs & categories for a company, this will result in some ‘Unclassified Data’.


  5. While the import is occurring, you can keep using Fathom - simply click ‘Continue using Fathom’ to proceed. You will then be notified when the import is complete.

    Note: The import of data for each job or category may take up to 1 minute, depending on the number of monthly periods to be imported.

What is ‘Unclassified’ data?

'Unclassified data' in Fathom represents the difference between the data for the entire company, and data that has been assigned to your jobs & categories. You may have unclassified data in Fathom if there is data in your financials that has not been attributed to a job or category or if you have not imported all of a company’s jobs & categories.

Learn more about unclassified data and how the amount is calculated in our ‘Unclassified Data’ article.
