Introducing InView

Synchronise Xero invoices and bills to your calendar

How often have you forgotten to chase that client who hasn’t paid on time? Did it hurt your business cash flow? How about those “overdue” and “final notice” letters for those bills that you were sure you had paid?

Running a small business can be a logistical challenge, especially if you’re a solo freelancer. From obtaining new prospects, to servicing your existing clientele, time for business administration tends to slip away quite rapidly.

InView is a certified Xero add-on that helps you keep on top of the invoices and bills that might otherwise fall by the wayside.

By signing up for InView, you can vastly streamline the process of keeping you and your team in the loop of important financial dates by integrating your Xero account automatically to your usual calendar apps.

How does InView work?

With a one click integration, InView generates an iCal feed for use with all your desktop and mobile calendar applications.

All major calendars are supported, including:

  • Apple
  • Google
  • Outlook
  • Yahoo
  • Plus any calendar that supports feeds

What is an iCal feed?

iCalendar (iCal) is an open standard for exchanging calendar and scheduling information. iCal feed enables an application to fetch, push or synchronise date and time based data to another calendar application (like Google calendar).

InView provides you with a personalised iCal feed per Xero organisation that you authorise with us. The feed contains information about when your Xero invoices are due, its status, and a direct link to itself on Xero.

Who’s it for?

  • Businesses and freelancers
    If you run a business and use Xero for invoicing, then InView is for you. Keep yourself up-to-date with the status of payments and know who to chase and when.
  • Xero accountants, bookkeepers and advisors
    If you manage accounts for your clients, give yourself an added value proposition by using InView. Give your clients the iCal feed or simply grant them access to your business calendar.

Larger teams

For companies that have multiple people that need to know organisation financials, you have a few options:

  • Share the InView iCal feed
  • Invite people to subscribe to your calendar
  • Use our new Slack integration

Integrating with Slack

You can integrate InView with your Slack workspace channels to receive a digest of your Xero invoices and bills that are due each day.
