Troubleshooting Error Messages

 Why am I receiving an error message when trying to copy my documents to Xero?

In order for the integration to work properly, you must have completed initial setup and ensured your Invoice2go and Xero taxes and currencies match. If these do not match, you may experience an error. Once your accounts have been successfully linked, you should be able to navigate to Settings>Connected Apps in Xero and see Invoice2go listed.

You can manually unlink your Xero account from Invoice2go by navigating to Settings>Xero and choosing Unlink Xero from the top right hand corner. You can manually unlink your Invoice2go account from Xero by navigating to Settings>Connected Apps in Xero and choosing Disconnect App.
