This feature must first be activated on the Contact Settings page.

Microkeeper will need to retrieve your Accounts from Xero.
On first time integration, you will need to configure which figures you want to send to which Accounts.
This is done by
(1) Selecting the Account.
(2) Enter a description - This will appear on the Xero invoice. -You must enter a description
(3) Select which values you want to send to that account.
(4) Select if the total is negative.
Save Xero Settings.
The above configuration will work for many scenarios.
On a weekly basis, it's required to send the payable bill to Xero.
It's important to ensure that the figures being sent to Xero match the figures recorded in the Microkeeper database.
If figures match, Send your data to Xero.
The invoice will appear as a draft in the Xero system.
If you are happy with these figures, mark this invoice as Approved in Xero.
You're done, go grab a cup of tea!
We recommend getting a bookkeeper and Microkeeper to help with the initial configuration, once setup this process can be done in a couple of minutes.
|Note: All names for values MUST be different.|
If a new name for a value appears, this will have to be added to the appropriate account, this is likely to occur with following weeks.
