Connecting to Xero Practice Manager

Our NowInfinity and Xero Practice Manager (XPM) integration is getting an update to match the latest security standards and software capabilities. These changes will be implemented on 1 October 2020 and will deactivate your connection. Reauthentication of your XPM integration with NowInfinity using Step A should be done on 1 October, 2020.

The benefits of connecting the two platforms:

  • All documents and entities created on NowInfinity can be copied to XPM.
  • Existing data from XPM can be imported and utilised in NowInfinity.
  • Changes to company details made with Corporate Messenger will update in XPM.
  • Generating discrepancies reports.

Step A: Connecting the platforms

Navigate to Menu > Portal Settings > Xero

In some cases (like login on the new device or different region than usual), XERO can request additional verification of the email confirmation.

Please follow instructions from XERO to verify access to the related email.

Note: A business in NowInfinity can only be connected to one single XERO account. Re-authorising the connection for a second account will revoke the access for the first XERO account.

Step B: Ensure the labelling below is the same as the labelling in XPM

Go back to the NowInfinity Portal, complete the fields and click Save.

 

Step C: Click Sync Data and generate the discrepancy report

This step enables the synchronisation of data between NowInfinity and XPM. It also creates a comparison report which will identify discrepancies between the two platforms.

By identifying these discrepancies and resolving them, it will help you to work between your two platforms with ease.

Click on Sync Data:

Is there an option to add more business structures?

Yes, you can add more than one business structure. There needs to be a comma used to separate the business structures. However, when you push through data to XPM from NowInfinity, the system will use the first inputted business structure. 

  • Eg. If you entered Trust, Estate, Discretionary Trust as the business structure for the Trust section, when you push through trust information from NowInfinity to XPM, the Trust Profile in XPM will be under Trust as the business structure.
