Today’s release delivers a collection of improvements to Xero. For the first time we’re delivering a feature for a country other than the US, UK, Australia or New Zealand: support for Cheques in Canada.
Here’s a quick update on what’s new in Xero this release.
Support for Cheques in Canada
We’ve provided support for US Checks for a long time, but with this release we move north. We’re delighted that small businesses in Canada can now account for cheque payments in Xero.
Cheques can be made on any outgoings from a business – everything from paying bills to refunding credit notes. After recording the payment you can style and print the cheque – even use your own chequebook or cheque printing software.
Improvements to Quotes
Following our release of Quotes, we’ve made a few more updates to improve how quotes are embedded in Xero. These include:
- Quickly create a quote or purchase order from within a contact’s record. A small but useful improvement, making it more efficient to keep your business moving. You can now quickly create a quote or purchase order while you’re in a contact’s record. Look up a contact, click ‘New’, and you can now create a new quote or PO just as you can for other items.
- Set a default expiry date for your quotes. If you usually send out quotes with the same expiry period, you can now set up a default quote expiry date which will automatically populate when you create a quote. You can override this if you need to when you create a quote.
- Enhanced auto-completer for purchase orders and quotes. As well as contact name, you can now search across primary person and email address.
‘Transfer and add another’
Do you make a lot of transfers between bank accounts – perhaps for paying many credit cards? It’s now faster to add multiple transfers.
There are some big releases around the corner; we can’t wait to tell you about them. In the meantime, you can find out about today’s release in our release notes.
