The billing section within projects has seen a great number of 3rd party integrations over the last few months, and this month is no exception. Thanks mainly to the feedback you guys sent in, we kept the pressure on and went right ahead and added in another billing integration.
We are now proud to announce Xero is now another invoicing application that you can send your billable time to so you can invoice your clients.
Xero integration for Teamwork Projects
If you already use Xero and now you want to know how to hook your Teamwork Projects account up so that you can send your invoices, below are the steps involved.
Once you have logged your time marked as billable it will move through into the billing tab. The aim of the game here, is to have no time sitting in the unbilled area. Anytime left here is work you haven’t been paid for, which is never good!
Now for those of you who haven’t used the billing section before I will quickly run through from the start what to do here:
Step 1: Set the user rate for this project.
Step 2: Create a new invoice by clicking on Add Invoice, and filling the details.

Step 3: Pick the logged time that you wish to assign to the newly created invoice. You can either drag and drop the time onto the invoice or you can pick from the drop menu. You can create as many invoices as you like within a project to break up the invoicing.

With all the screenshots I put together it looks like a lot of steps to get through, but all of this is done in well under a minute, and once you are doing this on a regular basis you will be flying through these steps.
For those of you using Xero we really hope you find this integration helpful and as always, any feedback or comments please let us know.
