Contacts

Contact details with addresses sorted into Postal and Street in Xero.

We check every phone number and make sure the mobile number ends up in the mobile field. We also check each address for variations of PO Box and automatically move it into the postal address fields.

If you have duplicate contacts in the source data we will add an identifier to the name so that each contact will still appear in Xero.

If you have contacts that are marked as inactive they will still be converted as they may have transactions associated with them. Simply archive these contacts in Xero following conversion.

In regards to ‘Sales and purchase account codes for contacts’ – the default income and standard purchase account codes for contacts currently do not come across as part of the conversion.

To update this information quickly in Xero you are able to ‘export’ the contacts update the relevant fields and re-import the updated file back into Xero. Please see the Xero help notes to assist you in regards to this:
