Today’s big news is our payroll launch in US but there are plenty of other things to talk about too.
First up, Craig Walker, our highly productive CTO, and his growing team in New York, have been busy enhancing Files.
Emailing files into Xero
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. Inspired by a request on community and a challenge from his wife Catherine that she didn’t think he could do it (red flag to a bull), Craig knocked this out over a rainy weekend. 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.
Following on from the first release of purchase orders last month we’ve added the most popular request from all the feedback we 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.
We’ve also been able to tick off our 4th most voted for feature request!
Multiple email addresses on a contact
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 our full release notes in Help.
Plenty of other goodness still being worked on including improved reporting and EC sales and purchase reporting for the UK. More on this over the next month or so.
And one final note, the pricing changes we announced last month will take effect on Monday morning, local time.
