How to setup

If you haven't already done so, log into Xero and setup your tracking category


Xero example
In this example, we have set up two tracking categories: Account Type and Account Manager.

You have the flexibility to choose any name for your tracking category. Our tool simply requires that the names of your options match in order to accurately map them.


If you haven't done it yet, go ahead and set up your territories in Autotask. It's important to make sure that the names of your territories match the options names you created in Xero's Category. This will ensure accurate mapping between the two platforms.
