MYOB Advanced Clients with multiple companies have asked many times, 'We have a number of different companies using MYOB Advanced and often get confused if more than one is open at a time. Is there a way we can change the User Interface colour for each company?'. If you have a number of legal entities within the one tenant it can be hard to know which one you are in. You do have the ability to adjust the Primary Colour per company using the MYOB Advanced Theme to adjust this.
