Release 2023-04-01

 NEW  Discontinued support of old Xero Bill-to-PO Matching functionality.

ApprovalMax launched basic Xero Bill-to-PO Matching in 2017. In 2021 a new version was introduced, which covered several major issues of the old version, such as lack of amount allocation within the matched bill and PO, ability to match multiple bills to multiple POs instead of one-to-many, automatic marking of PO as Billed upon the approval of last matched Bill, etc. 
In 2022, we announced our plan to discontinue the previous version of Xero Bill-to-PO Matching functionality and we discontinue support of previous version of Matching on 1st of April 2023.

For Xero Organisations under the Standard plan if previous version of Matching has been used:
  1. All matching data will be available in read-only mode, i.e. remains available to preview on requests and in reports.
  2. The old data can be migrated by following this simple process.
  3. If you have migrated previously and your Organisation is not on the "All features trial" or Advanced/Premium plan, all matching data will be available in read-only mode.
‚ÄčMore information on the change is available in our knowledge base article.

If you have any questions, please contact our support team.

 NEW  Workflow version control is generally available for Organisations on Advanced and Premium plans.

Every workflow version has the following data:
  1. Version # 
  2. Creation date and time
  3. Author
  4. Authors comment
By clicking on the workflows top bar button (with a clock icon), the list of workflow archive versions is shown:

Please notice, the older workflows versions might be missing some of the newly added parameters, such as Author and Author comments.

 NEW  Xero Batch Payment is generally available for all Organisations on ApprovalMax for Xero Premium subscriptions.

Instead of paying Bills one by one, you can prepare a Bulk Payment request with Approved ("Awaiting payment") Xero Bills. 
Once such a request receives the final approval, the respective Batch Payment file is created in the connected Xero Organisation against the selected bank account. 

Learn more about the functionality in the respective knowledge base section.

 FIXED  Several minor issues have been fixed, the overall performance and stability is improved.
