The syncing of data between Xero and Figured happens automatically every 4 hours, via a secure API.
Here’s what gets synced:
- Transactions you’ve added / edited in Xero
- New contacts or changes to existing contacts
- Changes to your chart of accounts
- Actual transactions you’ve added in Figured (via one of the trackers) where you’ve ticked the box Post to Xero
- Posted livestock valuation journals
Running a manual sync
If you need to sync Figured with Xero immediately, you are able to push through a manual sync.
You can do this by going to Settings > Xero Connection, or by clicking on the arrows in the top right corner.
These arrows will take you to your sync status page, displaying when your farm last synced to Xero, as well as showing any progress of a current sync if one is running.
Clicking Start will start your Xero sync, and the page will load to show you the current progress.
If you wish, you are able to Stop an ongoing sync if you only need to sync one part (i.e. your chart of accounts).
