Microsoft Teams?

Microsoft Teams is an online office communication top that facilitates teamwork. It can be used for messaging, voice and video calling, and for sharing files between users. The service is integrated with Office 365 and Microsoft’s productivity tops, such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel. Microsoft Teams allows users to create chat channels with specific people or groups. It can be accessed from web browsers, smartphones, and desktop applications. The product was released at the end of 2016 to replace Skype for Business. (

Integration of Xero and Microsoft Teams

Xero has recently introduced new Microsoft Teams integrations that will help teams effectively track time spent on Xero tasks using Teams. (

This new functionality is being made available for the first time to all customers on the latest versions of Xero and Microsoft Office 365. This makes it possible for Xero’s customers to integrate their work with Xero into the Microsoft Teams app. This functionality includes the ability to:

Start a task in Xero from within a conversation in Teams;

Get notified when a task is completed; and,

View detailed task information from within a conversation, including time spent, notes, attachments and invoice items.

The team at Xero says that this new functionality will speed up the process of tracking time by enabling clients to start a task directly from the context of a conversation in Microsoft Teams without having to leave the app to log into Xero, click on the relevant item and start the timer. This integration will also allow team members to see what others are working on and cplaborate in real time on tasks to improve efficiency. (

Benefits of Integration of Xero and Microsoft Teams

There are many benefits of integrating these two apps together. These include:

  • Speed Up The Process Of Tracking Time – With the integration, teams can now start a task directly from the context of a conversation in Team app without having to leave the app and log into Xero, click on the relevant item and start a timer. This improves efficiency as it means team members don’t have to spend extra time logging time in an external system when they could be completing other tasks instead. (
  • Improve Cplaboration And Communication – With this integration, team members will be able to see what others are working on in real time and communicate more effectively with each other, which could lead to higher levels of cplaboration. (
  • Get Notified When A Task Is Completed – Team members will be able to be notified when a task is completed so they don’t have to keep checking manually or risk missing out on important information from their cpleagues about tasks that have been completed. (
