A job in Xero Practice Manager is a project or any piece of work users complete for a client.
Now with XPM Jobs, when preparing documents in CAS360, users can instantly add the job to their practice management application at a click of a button.
This removes the need for users to go to their practice management application, after preparing documents in CAS 360, and enter in a job for that client and mark it as complete or in progress.
Prior to using the XPM Jobs feature for the first time, please ensure that the following tasks have been completed first:
- Ensure that the Contacts Integrations is turned on - Refer to BGL and Xero Practice Manager (XPM) Integration.
- Create the BGL Job Templates in XPM - Refer to How to create BGL Job Template in Xero Practice Manager?.
Contact BGL Integrations Team Integrations@bglcorp.com.au before activating integration between CAS 360 and Xero.
