Xero Push Purchase Invoices

The Map Tracking Categories tool is used tenables you to map your CMap fields to your Tracking Categories so that the data is successfully passed from CMap to your finance package.
Getting this right is important because categories are a way of tracking the performance of key areas in your business. For example, if you work in multiple locations, you can track sales for each location by setting up a tracking category for each location.

1. From your Dashboard, go to the Finance tab. On the left-hand side navigation bar, you’ll see the section, XERO, where you can access all of the Xero integration tools. Select Push Purchase Invoices




If you are using this tool for the first time, you will be asked to authorize CMap to push/pull information to Xero. Simply press Connect to XERO to continue.

2. Select the Xero company that you would like to connect to from the drop-down list and press Allow access for 30mins.

If you are already logged in to Xero, you’ll be redirected back to CMap. If not, you may need to enter your Xero login details here.

3. If applicable, select the relevant CMap Office from the drop-down list in the top left-hand corner.


4. Using the tick boxes, select the Purchase Invoices you wish to push to Xero and select the relevant Nominal Code.

Selecting the Nominal Code is not mandatory and can be actioned in Xero once pushed.


5. Ensure all details are correct and to finalise the process, please select Push Purchase Invoices


What happens next? 

Once the push action has completed, you will receive the green confirmation banner at the top of CMap stating the number of transactions that have successfully been pushed to Xero. The pushed Purchase Invoices will now be present in Xero’s Bills Draft section waiting for approval.PI6.png

If any of the Purchase Invoices did not push through successfully then you will receive a red warning banner.PI7.png

In this instance, a red exclamation icon will appear next to the offending transaction(s). When hovering your cursor over the red icon, a validation error message will display detailing why Xero denied the transaction.

If you do come across this, please contact CMap Support detailing the affected transactions and screenshots of the validation message. This information will be pivotal in determining why Xero has not accepted this.
