Why are the attachments of a Bill in Xero not synced to ApprovalMax?

Why are the attachments of a Bill in Xero not synced to ApprovalMax?

Scenario:
  1. A Bill was created and submitted for approval in Xero.
  2. Attachments that get added to that Bill at a later stage (usually via an OCR solution) don't show in ApprovalMax.
Reason:
Unfortunately, an attachment itself does not trigger a document update in Xero. Therefore, such a change (i.e. the attachment) does not get synced to ApprovalMax.

Solution:
  1. Open the Bill in Xero for editing and click on "Save".
Now, the change in form of a new attachment will be synced to ApprovalMax.
