If you add new Earnings rate in Xero i.e. a new hourly rate or job type or activity, this can be updated and new items married. Note: you need to create both types of Earnings Rate in Xero and Chronicle – only then can you marry the two across the two products.


​ Syncing Employees To avoid having to double entry employees across the two system, users can use the “Sync Employees” screen to move existing employees in Chronicle over to Xero or vice versa. This saves considerable time and effort and visibly shows you which employees are shared across the two platforms. ​ Note – The above screen shot shows only two employees are synced between Chronicle and Xero. The user would need to sync the remaining employees in order to pay these people successfully in the next Pay run.


Send Payments – avoid errors Using the Payments screen users can define the date range to match the pay run in Xero and then view the total hours x hourly rates that equals the Chronicle Amount being sent to Xero. The record will show in Red if the hours have not been sent to Xero from Chronicle or if the hours do not match. Hours may not match if data has been sent early in a pay run but the employee has then gone on to work additional hours that then also need to be sent over to Xero. ​ Note – Only two employees show in the Payments screen as only these two employees have been sent over to Xero as per previous screen shot and example showing “Syncing Employees”.
