    Thanks for your expressions and feedback in a bulk download or print facility for Files (either from the Files library or at an individual transaction level)
    We know that bulk operations can be handy, however at this time we have no plans to develop this functionality. We know it might seem like a small feat, however often even small change is more tightly woven and intricate to solve beneath the surface.
    While we understand this must be frustrating to hear, we’re currently focused on making improvements in other areas of Xero and are unable to prioritise a bulk download or print feature right now.
    However, in situations like these there are often connected apps through the Xero App Store that may be able to assist. We appreciate and will revise solutions that could fulfil needs in this space, but want to be honest this isn’t something we have plans for…

  3. Ability to produce statements of activities that can specifically produce tracking categories for not for profit organisations.

    Hi all 👋 thanks for sharing this idea and contributing your feedback on how it would help save time and reduce delivery errors. This has all been sent to and considered by our product teams.

    I wanted to jump in here to share that this is a feature that our team are looking to develop in Purchase Orders in the long term - there are a few other pieces of work lined up before. We'll shift to Under review and keep you updated of any progress, here.

    In the meantime, one way to make the physical address the default delivery address when creating purchases orders is by using a Custom DOCX branding theme, and either use the relevant merge fields, or even enter the default address in plain text on the template. You might then have a separate ‘normal’ theme if you want some orders to go to the Postal…

  5. Ability to have duplicate contact names in Xero.

    Purpose: It’ll make an easier workflow for users. Because often, they have the same contact name and trading name but different addresses.

    Hey community, thank you for your continued interest in this idea.

    Wanted to provide an update here as it's been a while since we last spoke to duplicate contacts.

    I do understand that, at face value, this seems like a quick fix. However, as the contacts screen interacts with many other parts of Xero, this work can not commence until the modernisation of other, related systems is complete. 

    Due to this, we do not expect support for duplicate contacts to be delivered in the coming short-term.

    In the meantime however, we're keen to continue collecting feedback and votes on this idea, and I will update you here as soon as there's more work to share.

  6. To have the ability limit some users to access some bank accounts within Xero org.

    Thanks for sharing and showing interest in how we can develop user roles to suit your needs when using Xero. 

    With many varying ideas for roles and permissions in different areas of our products, user roles impact all areas of the product. There are many factors we must consider when addressing how to solve for majority of our customers needs.

    We’re in the process of conducting research on the current landscape and how we might approach some of the most predominant needs in roles for our customers. This being one of our highest voted ideas surrounding roles is a specific focus for the team. too. 

    Discovery of this work is its first stages and will be long running. There will be multiple phases of research and forms of engagement with users that’ll help shape the path ahead in this space.  

    We value our customers input and would like to…

  8. Ability to restrict access to specific tracking categories for some users in Xero org.

    Purpose: To help users hide the incoming and outgoing transactions from some users within the Xero org. Some organisations (e.g. not for profit) need this to protect the privacy of their donors and departments.

    Hi everyone, coming back across this idea we do want to confirm at present for Sales you have Invoice numbers that do need to be unique in Xero. You could ask you customer to reference this as a look up. If you'd like to change this, you can set the Prefix and starting number from within your invoice settings and you'll find you also have options to set this for Quotes and Purchase Orders - More on this here 


    The 'Reference' field of a transaction is slightly different and does not need to be unique, many businesses use this in slightly different ways and I want to be open that we don't have plans for changing this behaviour anytime soon. 


    Appreciate there are some that would like to see a numbering sequence for bills and I'd recommend adding support to this idea where this is represented. 


    Alternatively, in terms…

    Hi community, we appreciate many businesses have adopted single sign on with providers like Google, Microsoft Azure/Entra, and Okta to easily streamline logins to many applications and manage operational risk. Our team are staying close to votes and feedback of the idea here, and though we can't commit to development at this time, we will be sure to let you know of any progress toward enabling single sign on

    We appreciate all the feedback received through this idea, everyone. Taking on board all your comments there are two sides of the fence when looking at flagging an invoice as 'in dispute' - Looking at the ability to flag a bill/supplier invoice as 'in dispute', versus the ability to flag a customer invoice as 'in dispute'. It'd be good to get understanding of the interest in each individually so we've started a new idea for bills that you can add your support for. But to give clarity, currently we do not have plans for developing a flag for bills, or sales invoices. For those looking for this feature in sales invoice although not specific to each invoice, you may be able to make use of Credit Limits - Find out more and explore how to set up a limit for your customers through Xero Central. We'll continue to track the…

  16. Ability to rename the files in Xero Files once it’s attached.

  17. My suggestions are as follows:

    • Forum topics devoted to actual components of Xero i.e. Sales, Payables, Payroll etc
      Current topics aren't specific or indicative of where to post your question or browse. (Delivered)

    • Communities by Country
      Information would be accurate to country of business residence.
      Saves going into many posts that aren't relevant to country accounting standards.
      Users wouldn't have to preface each subject with country code

    It's good to hear how we can improve our forums for you all to continue engaging with one another within Xero's community. With the launch of Xero Product Ideas in April, we took the opportunity to restructure the site in a more meaningful way for our customers.

    The forums are split by product - In for small businesses, you'll find categories that represent feature in your blue Xero organsiation. While over in for accountants & bookkeepers, you can support ideas for Xero's Partner products and features aimed at practices servicing Xero clients.

    Communities by country is something we'll continue to assess. We appreciate how greater visibility of a users time zone could help with navigation of knowledge and ideas. In the meantime, you'll find in the forums here and across in Xero Central Discussions community managers may sometimes edit the title of a community discussion to include most relevant regions…

    Hi everyone, appreciate the interest in the idea here. 


    We do want to highlight the ability to bulk recode transactions from one tracking option to another through Find & Recode - while only available to those with the Adviser role this will allow you to accomplish what's being asked here. 


    We'd recommend having a try in the demo co. if this is a new tools for you. 🙂
