New stuff from Xero

Date: 9th December 2013

Emailing files into Xero

Files is the feature in Xero that allows you to upload file attachments directly to transactions, fixed assets and contacts, or store them in your Xero file library until you’re ready to attach them.  Here’s what new in Files.

You’ll notice a funky looking email address displayed on your Files inbox. This is unique to your organisation and any attachments you send to this address will automatically appear in your Files inbox.

Take a photo from your webcam

For Firefox and Chrome users with a webcam, you can now take a snapshot from your camera and have this added as an image to any of your Files folders. Pretty cool and is, in fact, a very quick way to record document images quickly without having to take a scan or send an email.

Purchase orders searching improvement

Following on from the first release of purchase orders last month they’ve added the most popular request from all the feedback received: search for purchase order delivery address by contact.

Simply click on the Search by Contact option and select from one of your contact’s addresses.

On each contact record you can add up to five additional people and their email addresses. You select whether to add each email to the recipient list on any outgoing Xero emails.

But wait, there’s more.

  • Inventory items on cash transactions
  • Improved statement search
  • Reference field on bank transfer transactions
  • More control over check alignment (US)
  • Updated Taxable Payments Annual Report (AU)

Phew! You can read  full release notes in Help.
