Frequently asked questions around how to integrate Xero and Push:

A: No, Push also exports bills to Xero.

Q:What permissions do I need to export journal entries or export bills to Xero?

Q:In what case will my changes in Xero be erased?
A:The only time the changes in to your Xero journal entry or bills will be erased is if you re-export (or export the same file again) after making changes in Xero.
Your newest export of the same journal entry or bill will always override your changes.

For example: Yesterday, you have exported a journal entry for the payrun date ending Jan 15th 2019. In that draft journal entry, you have changed the name of a profit center.

However, you've forgotten that you've already exported the file the previous day and you re-export the same journal entry.
The change you made to the name of the profit center of the previous day's export will be overridden.
