Practice Ignition integrates with Xero to automatically create and push invoices according to the billing information specified in your proposals. 

See the steps below on how to connect Xero to your Practice Ignition account.

Note: We do not currently support the use of multiple accounting platforms at once. If you have integrated with one platform, you must switch off that integration before connecting to a different platform.

How to connect to your Xero Accounting Platform

1. Go to Apps > Xero and click on Connect your account

You'll be prompted to log in to Xero if you aren't already logged in, through a pop-up box. Once logged in, you will be prompted to authorize the connection between Practice Ignition and Xero.

Note: If you have multiple Xero files, be sure to connect the right one! 

Please note that we do not integrate with Xero Cashbooks for personal use - we only integrate with the full Xero platform for businesses.

Once you've authorized the connection, you will be redirected back to Practice Ignition. 

2. Now, we'll need to set your App Settings before you can enable the integration. Please see this article on configuring the specific Xero Settings

3. You will also be required to map your tax rates from Xero. If you charge tax, please ensure that this is completed to enable tax on your proposals!

Next, click on Enable Xero to connect Practice Ignition and Xero!

Connection Settings

Practice Ignition connects to a number of fields in Xero - most of them are the ones you can edit under the Xero settings mentioned above, and then there are the client names in Xero. If you make a change to any of the settings from within Xero, or change a client name and need to see it reflected in Practice Ignition straight away, you can click Sync to refresh the data. We also refresh this data once a day at 12am.

Please note, Practice Ignition does facilitate a 2 way sync of client information to Xero - it connects your Practice Ignition clients to Xero clients through Mapping.

If you need to connect to another organization in Xero, or remove the connection, simply click the Disable Xero button and go through the steps in this article again to link them.

Note: We do not currently support the use of multiple accounting platforms at once. If you have integrated with one platform, you must switch off that integration before connecting to a different platform.
