How do I access my Payables update?

Your bills to pay are referred to as "Payables" by Tania. Your Payables update is an option you will get after choosing "Cashflow" at the main menu. The reason for this is because paying bills is about your cash going out.

I'm at the main menu, what do I do from here?

  1. From the main menu, you will say "Cashflow".

  2. Tania will then ask "Before we begin today, would you like to know if you have any unreconciled transactions?"

  3. You can say "yes", or "no".  Note, if you say yes, Tania will update you on your unreconciled transactions, before reconnecting you with the same path taken if you had said no.

  4. If you say no, Tania will then say "You are now at the Cashflow Menu.  What would you like to listen to first?  End of month cashflow forecast, payables, receivables, or 3 month cashflow forecast."  

  5. You will say "Payables".  

  6. If this is your first time choosing payables, Tania will say "As this is your first time using my payables feature, would you like me to explain what I will provide in this section?

  7. You can say "yes", or "no".

  8. If this is not your first time choosing payables, or if you say "no" to the above, then Tania will say "Please tell me which payables update you would like to hear.  You can say, overdue payables, or payables coming up."

  9. Say your selection, for example "overdue payables".

  10. Tania will then begin your commentary.

What if I don't use Xero's system accounts payable to record my bills?

Unfortunately, if you aren't using Xero's system accounts payable, Tania will be unable to identify your bills or when they are due.  Therefore no commentary will be provided.
