We love that Xero’s users are passionate and don’t hide their feelings.
It seems we scared the horses on our recent online invoicing functionality. Our intentions were to ship Online Invoicing with some more flexible emailing options but we didn’t quite get that out this release. Ordinarily we think, ship early and iterate and accept that in this case it would have been better to have both features at once.
When we took customers and partners through the features last week at #xerocon we had a great response but of course we couldn’t preview this with all of you.
So the team has been working to put it right. We’ve quickly added 3 options when sending invoices either individually or in bulk. The change has been coded and is now in testing to be released early next week. You can see from the screen shot below how it works.
This was what we could do quickly. In the next release you’ll see extended email formatting settings and more features that allow you to build your relationship with your customers. All of these will be optional. We’re really excited about them.
Again our apologies and thank you for your feedback and passion. We love hearing it all. Good and bad.
