We have an exciting vision for our practice products over the next 12 months and beyond. To realise that vision, we need to think hard about the features that aren’t adding value to your practice, and those that need more of our focus.
One of our biggest goals is making the ‘Clients’ page your single source of truth for client information in Xero HQ. To support this, we’ll be turning off the ‘Activity’ page in Xero HQ from mid-August 2021. In the meantime, you may notice that some Activity alerts aren’t up to date.
Focusing on features you value
Our research and conversations with Xero partners has found that usage of the Activity page is low and many feel it doesn’t add much value. So we’d like to put our resources towards features you use every day, and new practice tools that we know you’re excited to see in Xero HQ.
For example, we’ve recently added a column you can add which shows unreconciled items for each client, and we’ll continue to add more detail to this view so you can action things quickly. We’ve also developed customised COA templates, and improved the way you manage clients in Xero HQ.
Listening to you
Turning features off isn’t a decision we take lightly. Every feature represents countless hours of development, care, and attention from our teams. We spend a great deal of time talking to customers and pouring over data, to make sure we’re doing what’s best for you and your practice.
We’ll continue to keep you updated on the exciting changes taking place in Xero HQ in the months ahead. In the meantime, we’d love your thoughts on this change and encourage you to reach out if you need support.
