Frequently Asked Questions

Can I import my customers from Xero to Commusoft?

Yes, there is a step in the integration process that prompts you to import all of your customer data from your accounting package or not. If you do import customer data it will import however it is stored, so if the customer data is quite disorganized in Xero, then it will be disorganized in Commusoft. Note, there is no way to undo this import.

If I mark an invoice as paid in Xero will that appear in Commusoft?

Due to many people using their bank feed to reconcile invoices as payments come into their bank, we now have a feature whereby any payments entered into Xero will import to Commusoft as long as the invoice has come from our system.

If I add an email address to a customer will this also update their contact details in Xero?

Yes. You are able to toggle this functionality on or off. Any updates to a customer’s name, title, email address, or property address will update that customer’s contact details in Xero too so you will save time by not having to input manual data twice.

If a customer’s credit terms change do I update this in Commusoft or Xero?

You can make this change against the customer’s account in Commusoft and we’ll send that change to Xero with the appropriate invoice, saving you time and headaches matching data across.

Do Xero tracking categories work with Commusoft?

Xero uses tracking categories and options instead of department codes or cost centres. This keeps your chart of accounts manageable. You can have up to 100 tracking options for each tracking category while a tracking category needs at least one tracking option to assign the feature to a transaction. We integrate that via our invoice categories. It’s another layer of reporting that you can apply to drill down where your invoices are coming from. These are fully functional with the Commusoft integration.

Can you assign nominal codes to one invoice?

Yes! And what’s more is that you can assign multiple nominal codes to a single Xero invoice. Most integrations are too simplistic and therefore limited to only assigning one nominal code to an invoice. Commusoft, however, allows you to pass multiple financial figures to the same invoice.

Xero vs QuickBooks

It all comes down to your business and what works best for you. We won’t recommend any particular system and the Commusoft integration will work just as well with both.

Can the integration interface pass information if the Xero server is closed down?

Unfortunately, if the Xero server is down or malfunctioning, there is nothing the Commusoft team can do to help. All communication between the two software will stop until the Xero server is back online and it’s recommended that you contact your Xero support team.
