Over the last month, we’ve rolled out updates to key features in Xero including improvements to batch bank feeds, and introduced AI-generated answers to help you get the most relevant information when you need help within Xero. We’ve also implemented some of the most requested product ideas, including enabling you to upload multiple receipts in Hubdoc or void multiple transactions in one go. Read on to find out what else is new in Xero.

Global: Use the Hubdoc mobile app to upload multiple receipts at once [Product Idea]

You can now upload up to 10 documents at once to Hubdoc, helping you save time and reduce everyday admin. Update your Hubdoc app to the newest version to get access to the feature, or download the app on iOS or Android. Learn more in Xero Central.

Global: Bulk void enhancements [Product Idea]

You’re now able to bulk void bills, credit notes and payslips on a single page. This was a highly requested product idea (with 107 votes) and will save you significant time by providing tools to update multiple transactions at once.

Global: AI-generated search results in the help menu

Now, when you’re working in Xero and ask for help, you’ll get an AI-generated answer as well as a list of other relevant content articles. You’ll get a fast, simple response with links to the source material and more details if needed. The answer takes into account what page you’re viewing, and the version of Xero you use, to make sure that the information provided is relevant to you.

Global: Batch bank feeds can now be cancelled in Xero

We’ve added a disconnect button in Xero for batch feeds, to streamline and automate cancelling them.

Australia: Surface payment details for BAS

Just in time for the end of the financial year, you can now view your payment details and due date on the activity statement page when you’re connected to the ATO in Xero. This handy update reduces the need to manually find this information outside of Xero, further streamlining your workflow.

Australia: Payroll reconciliation improvements

To enable quicker and easier payroll reconciliation for the end of the financial year, we’ve made improvements to the transparency of key numbers and totals. We’ve also provided easier access to reports to make reviewing and finalising more efficient.

New Zealand: Upgrades to pay reports

The look and functionality of several payroll reports has been upgraded for consistency and now matches the latest Xero reports experience. This includes the ability to re-order columns, and the ability to export to Google Sheets in addition to the current PDF and Excel formats.

UK: Opt in for a Xero eInvoicing subscription [Product Idea]

UK customers can now conveniently opt in through the billing contact page to automatically receive their monthly Xero subscription invoices as draft bills in Xero. While the functionality to automate the creation of Xero subscription invoices has been available for New Zealand, Australia and Singapore, we’ve been able to expand it to also include UK customers. You can opt in here.

US: New Stifel automated bank feed

Are you a Stifel banking customer? We have great news for you. We’ve introduced a new bank feed for Stifel, making it easier to get your banking transactions directly into Xero.

US: Taxable and non-taxable sales reporting for manual tax rates

If you use manual sales tax rates in the US, you can now access new separate columns for taxable and non-taxable sales in your sales tax reports, saving you time when working out your totals.

These are just some of the updates that have rolled out in Xero this last month. For a full list of what’s new this June, check out the release notes in Xero Central.
