Xero and Microsoft collaborate to help you spend less time looking for the right contact and more time in your business.

Microsoft Outlook allows you to work efficiently with email, calendar, contacts, tasks, and more, all together in one place. Microsoft Office integration lets you share attachments right from OneDrive, access contacts, and view LinkedIn profiles.

Microsoft Outlook + Xero

Xero and Microsoft work together to power your Microsoft Outlook applications with all the contact information you have stored in Xero. View your Xero contacts in your Microsoft Office inbox and calendar to send emails, schedule meetings, and view related tasks for you to do. Update and use them on your iOS and Android devices too if you choose. That means you can always be sure that you have the latest contact information in the places you need it most.

Once the integration is set up, each time a contact is created or updated in Xero, the contact data flows automatically into Microsoft Outlook. Your Xero contacts are grouped together in Microsoft Outlook so they don’t get mixed in with your other contacts such as personal email addresses.

Phone number

Yup, does not sync the phone numbers - fatal flaw and now rendering it useless. I put in a ticket with Xero just to make sure they know so if it's still not working when you read this two months from now then what does that tell ya? :)

No phone numbers

Sync works as promised, one way into a folder in Outlook. However, phone numbers are missing.

Attempted to sync my Xero Contacts with Google Contacts which is not syncing phone numbers, so I thought I'd try connecting Microsoft Outlook. It seems Xero is incapable of syncing phone numbers as my Xero Contacts synced with Outlook haven't synced the phone numbers across. 2 stars as everything else syncs, just not phone numbers.
