Hi, I’m Tony. I’ve spent the last six years leading the Xero API team and am excited to get back to my roots to focus on the core user experience of Xero. I am laser focussed on making it easier for Xero users to monitor and understand the health of their business.
I’m excited to tell you that with today’s release you’ll notice a fresh new look to the Xero Dashboard. This is just the start of many ongoing updates you’ll notice to the dashboard in the coming months. With this release:
- We’re introducing a new graph which shows your incoming and outgoing cash over the last few months – handy for seeing your historical cash movements at a glance. You can drill into the detail as required.
- Our invoice and bill graphs will be improved so you’ll be able to see the total amounts for all outstanding invoices rather than just those overdue – the same will apply to bills. The charts are simplified so you can quickly see if there are overdue items at a glance and drill down to see these.
- You’ve told us for a long time that you want the choice of what to show on the Dashboard and where those items are positioned. So from now everything can be positioned as you like or optionally hidden if you don’t have a need for a particular item.
Check out the video below to get an overview of the dashboard and how it works.
Coming soon: the Business Performance Dashboard
This update to the Xero Dashboard begins the journey of delivering on our vision of providing big data capabilities for small business.
Last month, we previewed our Business Performance Dashboard, a set of indicators that will help small businesses better measure and understand their performance, while giving them information to work more effectively with their advisors. You’ll hear more about this over the next few months.
As always we’re keen to hear what you think, so please keep telling us how we are doing on Xero Community.
I look forward to keeping you updated as we roll these improvements out. Today’s release included more fantastic features, which you can read about here.
