Xero upgrade adds discounts, HTML graphs

20 Feb 2012

Online accounting software company Xero has rolled out a new release addressing a bundle of user requests such as discounts and invoice line re-ordering.

In a post on the company blog, Xero product manager Andrew Tokeley says users can set default discount rates for each of their customers, include discounts on each invoice line, and choose how discounts are displayed.

The company has also merged its ‘help centre’ and ‘answers’ pages into one ‘communities’ site, fine-tuned its API, and introduced HTML graphs as part of a move away from Flash – which is not enabled on iPhone or iPad.

More changes are on the way, including budget improvements, remittance  advices, and check printing for the US. Go here for a full list of today’s changes.
