    Hi community, we appreciate this idea has collected a fair amount of votes and commentary. This has all been shared with, and considered by, our product team - so they have an understanding of the work that would be required for this.

    We'd like to confirm that, at this stage, the automatic generation and sending of reports is not something we have plans to develop in the near term. We are still interested to get a clearer understanding of demand for this feature, and we'll continue to track this through the conversation and votes on this idea. If there's any change we will let you know!

    I need to send weekly reports to 40 individual budget holders (we're a school, so each subject has a separate budget) to enable them to see how their actual expenditure is tracking against budget. It's not feasible to do this manually, so I am using an add-on, which isn't entirely satisfactory.

    It's frustrating when work is done on Xero to 'improve' on existing functionality when there are still basic features - like scheduled reporting - missing.

    Hi community, appreciate the want for more of an update from us on this highly voted idea. Since Kelly’s last message I am pleased to let you know that our product team has done some discovery work in this space. More specifically, exploring the different ways in which the problem could be solved in Xero, alongside understanding the technical challenges. The feedback you’ve shared has been really useful for our product team’s research 🙏

    We recognise the importance of needing to know which bills are flagged, so people making payment can review whether a bill should be paid or not, to avoid inadvertent payment. Being able to improve this workflow is important to us and once we have solution concepts, we will be sure to reach out to this community for feedback.

    Right now there are no specific time frames available as to when this might be worked on, but…

    I'd like to be able to mark those bills that are going to be paid by Direct Debit, so that I don't pick them up in a payment run by accident. If I was approving bills straightaway, I'd add the Direct Debit payment when processing the bill, but all bills go for approval via ApprovalMax, so that's not possible.

    Being able to flag purchase invoices (bills) as being in dispute was a feature in the pre-Windows version of Sage in the 1980s - I am that old! - which tells you that it's fundamental to a basic accounting system.

    Kelly, you ask why it's so important: well, unless a bill is approved in Xero it doesn't hit the ledgers, so the expense and liability aren't reflected in the accounts and the VAT that could be reclaimed isn't picked up by the VAT return in Xero. However, there's often something wrong with a bill that involves some to-ing and fro-ing with the supplier, which means that it should be excluded from payment runs.

    The only way I've found round this is to use the 'planned date' functionality and just not enter a date for something in dispute.

    Hi community, first off thank you for the continued interest and feedback surrounding this idea. We’re continuing to build on the bank reconciliation experience in Xero and recognise the ways this feature will help improve the efficiency, flexibility and transparency of transactions in your business. Our team have done a lot of exploration into being able to surface and match Credit Notes when reconciling your bank account in Xero, and this is now in development.

    We’ll shift the idea here into ‘Working on it’ and continue to update as there’s more detail of this to share.

    I agree with Claire and Luke. It's important that, when setting up suppliers' payments, it's possible to select both the outstanding invoices and credit notes. Currently, credit notes have to be allocated against random invoices first, which means that it's not possible to produce a remittance advice showing which credit notes have been used or why there's an underpayment on some invoices. This is basic functionality.

    The biggest problem for us is that you can't produce a remittance advice for a supplier that shows the invoices and the credit notes separately. All they see is that we are part-paying an invoice or that an invoice is missing altogether, so they have to guess that we've allocated a credit note.

    Hi community, we appreciate this idea has collected a fair amount of interest which has all been shared with and reviewed by the product team.

    While this isn't currently being worked on there are other ideas this team are working on right now, including a bulk void feature and highlighting rows when selected. Although these features are still under development process and we don't have confirmed release dates yet.

    With regards to having a separate field for the posting date and invoice date, our team is interested in better understanding this idea as it may be something they look to develop down the track. They really appreciate and encourage you to continue to share your experiences, pain points and insights. This will help them understand how this feature can benefit you and other customers, as well as gauge demand for it.

    As always, if there's any change we will…

    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…

    Hi Wojciech, if an invoice or bill has already been paid there is no amount left outstanding for the invoice. It sounds like you'd like the ability to easily copy the detail of an invoice to a credit note? I've slightly updated the title of your idea here, for this. 

    If this doesn't quite reflect it'd be great to get more detail of scenarios you'd in which your business receives a credit note for a completely paid invoice or bill.

    Hi everyone, we value your input to this idea and how adding files directly to a fixed asset in Xero would be of use and improve efficiency for our customers.

    Noted in my last update - our team are now in the midst of building Fixed Assets with updated technology. We plan to begin releasing this in the latter part of this year.

    Our product team have paid close attention to the requests related to Fixed Assets here in community as they develop, and we do have intentions of providing the ability to attach files to assets.

    For now, we'll shift to Under review and I'll keep you updated when we're closer to making this available to you all.

    This is really important to us as we have no way of attaching documentation to fixed assets that existed before we moved to Xero or attaching warranties, photos and instruction manuals.

    Hi community, we appreciate this idea has collected a fair amount of votes and commentary. This has all been feedback and taken seriously by our product teams.

    Currently, there are ways to record a bad debt in Xero, depending on your tax registration status and how you want the transactions to be recorded in your reports - We have help for this on Xero Central you can draw into.

    We don’t have any plans in the near term to expand functionality to develop a button to write off invoices or bills as 'bad debt'. If anything changes in this space, we’ll update you on this idea!
