An eagle-eyed tweeter spotted this last week.
Oh, the intrigue! Well, I’m pleased to be able to confirm we’re changing the look of the header in Xero – in fact, this will become the standard for Xero including the Practice Studio suite of MyXero, Workpapers and Practice Manager for accountants.
As well as providing a more consistent look and feel across all of Xero’s applications, this change will also make it easier for us to deliver new shared features. A good example of this is the ability to search for an organisation – see below.
The change will be rolled out next Monday and since a few things have moved around a bit, I thought I’d let you know what to expect ahead of time.
Where’s the logout link?
Access to the logout link and to your user profile can be found by clicking on your name at the top right of the screen.
How do I get to My Xero?
All navigation between recently visited organisations and away from Xero is now actioned from the top left list icon. For most of you, who don’t have access to Practice Studio applications it will look like this:
If you’re an accountant you have access to Practice Studio and My Xero is located with these applications. All applications available for your country are listed even if you don’t use them.
Quickly search for organizations
If you have access to more than five organizations you’ll be able to search for organisations by name – no need to navigate back to My Xero. Much quicker.
How do I get to my Files library
Finally, you may have noticed in the screenshots above that there’s a new icon in the header for Files. Rather than accessing the Files library from the Settings menu, simply click the file icon next to the notifications icon.
So there you have it – a heads up on changes to the Xero header.
We also have a couple of other small updates in the release, these include:
Attaching files to purchase orders
Remove your own access to an organization
Update to Organization Settings to store your NZBN number (NZ only)
