Setting up Your Neto, Unleashed & Xero Ecosystem





Step 1: In Xero add a “stock on hand” and “cost of goods sold” account.

  1. Add a “Current Asset” account called “Stock on Hand”. All purchases and journals sent from Unleashed will be coded to this account.

  2. Add a “Direct Cost” account called “Cost of Goods Sold”. All invoice journals sent to Xero will be coded to Cost of Goods Sold account and the Stock on Hand account mentioned below.

  3. Note: If you already have accounts setup for these you do not need to create new ones.

Step 2: In Unleashed map your warehouses to Neto warehouses.

Make sure your warehouse codes in Unleashed match your warehouse codes in Neto, even if you have 1 warehouse.

Your warehouse codes in Unleashed must match the warehouse reference codes you have setup Neto. You can edit the warehouse code and warehouse ref of existing warehouses in both systems to match.

To locate and edit warehouse reference codes from the Neto dashboard, navigate to Products > Warehouses / Locations.



To locate and edit warehouse codes in Unleashed, navigate to Settings > System > Warehouses. This ensures inventory and sales are mapped to the correct warehouses.



Step 3: Connect Unleashed to Xero

  1. In Unleashed navigate to Integration > Integration Store > Xero > Configure.

  2. Follow the onscreen instructions to connect your Xero account to your Unleashed account.

  3. Select your Unleashed Xero export options as per below.

Integration Tasks

An integration task is an import or export process that pushes data to or pulls data from a 3rd party application.

To see a full list of tasks that run between Neto and 3rd party systems from the Neto dashboard, navigate to Xero / Unleashed > Tasks.

The tasks required for your integration will automatically run on the schedule set. You can edit a scheduled task by drilling into it. We do not recommend editing the default schedules that have been setup for you.

Manually Initiating Integration Tasks:

  1. From the Neto dashboard, navigate to Xero / Unleashed > Tasks.

  2. Select the task you want to run from the list of active tasks and click the With Selected > Run Selected Task button at the bottom of the screen.

  3. This will run the chosen task within a few minutes.



  4. The results of your export will be shown in the accounting export logs. From the Neto dashboard, navigate to to Xero / Unleashed > Export log to view this log.

    Every single invoice, payment, customer or credit note that is exported to a 3rd party system is logged here. These logs provide in depth reporting into the success or failure of each transaction.

    From these logs you can also re-export any transaction at the click of a button.
