Could be so much better

We like using Projects and have found it useful to track staff time against a job and particular tasks. Where it could greatly be improved: * When opening an invoice or quote from projects, it would be great if it opened in a new tab as currently it doesn't so then I have to reopen Projects and find the project again * Tasks is linked to Products and Services which is also great and helps with consistency but when generating an invoice using tasks and expenses, it doesn't automatically put in the description of the product/service so for each line item in the invoice, I have to edit it. * It would also be super helpful if a quote is linked to the project then the option to covert selected line items to tasks.

Although quotes, invoices and bills can be done against a project, there still is not way of linking an purchase order against a project. Projects also do not have project addresses and the customer's (contact) address is used. Pity when you do various projects for a single customer with many project managers. Xero's Projects might be perfect for a small one man contracting business.

Would be ideal if you could tag a project off a xero timesheet particularly the Xero me app. The time capture in Projects is clunky at best and not ideal for self serve when there is non project time. Will need to find a different solution

Added projects to my package recently. Has lots of potential. Need to be able to assign quotes and expenses from xero to be worth it.

Too time consuming

I really want to utilise Projects to help support our business, but it is far too time consuming. You should be able to link bills and invoices directly to the project that you have set up. Instead you have to double up on everything.

So Much Potential!

So much can be done with Projects that is great but why doesn't it talk to the rest of Xero like Expenses add-on does? Infuriating - just needs a little extended development and the system will fly!

Although Xero reviews each app in the Xero App Store, we can’t give any guarantees. It’s up to you to assess the performance, quality and suitability of any app before going ahead.
