Connect Appogee HR to Xero in 3 Steps

Step 1 - Get Appogee HR & Connect to Xero

Start your 14 day free trial of Appogee HR Then follow the steps in-app to purchase Appogee HR or Appogee Leave.

Xero Payroll can be integrated with Appogee HR and Appogee Leave using the Xero Payroll API. Note that this is available in the UK, New Zealand, and Australia.

In your app go to System Config > Xero.

Click 'Connect to Xero'

A new window will open where you will be invited to sign into your account. Fill out the details and click login, you'll then need to click Allow Access to initiate the integration.

Step 2 - Configure Your Fields & Leave Types

You'll be directed back to the Integration Settings screen, where you can Configure which Fields you would like to synchronise with. You can choose which Sync Type you would like to initiate - pull from Xero, Push from HR or both.

Make sure you're happy with all the information and click Save & Continue. The next step is to link your Leave Types in Appogee HR to your Leave Types in Xero. When you're happy with this set up, click Save & Continue.

If you are in a country where the API will support the syncing of sickness requests you will be presented with an additional tab within which to configure these additional sync settings.

Step 3 - Sync Your Data Between Xero & Appogee HR

The system will now attempt to match users in Appogee HR with users in Xero. If both systems already have the same set of users you will see that the Employee has been matched, you may need to Setup Sync if the data is slightly different.

Click Setup Sync, a dialog box will open where you will be prompted to select the preferred data entry. Any items with a question mark will need addressing, once correct, click Confirm Employee Sync. Once this is complete, the employee entry will turn green.

If the employee cannot be found, but they are in Xero, you may need to complete a manual search for them. Click Find Employee in Xero and a dialog box will open. If the employee still cannot be found, you may need to create the Employee.
