New Xero global release
Xero has announced new changes in its platform and mobile updates for iOS and Android. The user permissions page has been redesigned to make it simpler to use.
Additionally, Xero Projects now features different levels of access. Small business owners and managers can assign different members of staff to one of three levels of access to the information and actions that they can perform within Xero (admin, standard or limited user role permissions).
The new mobile updates for iOS and Android include the introduction of a new purchase tab that substitutes the previous receipts tab, and which now includes unpaid bills, recent spending and a view of expenses.
With the latest mobile release, users can also copy invoice details over to a new invoice, manage contact details without leaving an invoice and share invoices from a variety of apps, including social media platforms.
