New integration with digital signing solution FuseSign

FYI now integrates seamlessly with FuseSign, a digital signing solution built by accountants, for accountants – just like FYI!

FuseSign provides greater control over who signs, views or has limited access to each document, making it fantastic for handling a whole family group in one bundle.

Clients receive just one link, don’t need to remember username and passwords, and can access from any device.

Released 05 August 2021

New integration with AccountKit

FYI now integrates with AccountKit to make cloud-based practices more efficient and give you insights to start bigger conversations with your clients.

Import and file AccountKit reports into FYI with ease, link documents in FYI to AccountKit tools, and jump straight from AccountKit to the same client in FYI with a single click. The integration works out of the box, matching clients between the two apps, and applying security and permissions – and even allows you to browse documents by Client Group in AccountKit.

Released 14 October 2021

New integration with myprosperity

FYI now integrates with myprosperity, a sophisticated client portal that makes it easy for practices to work together with their clients and key stakeholders, maximising efficiencies and scaling their level of engagement.

Invite your clients to sign documents within myprosperity. Once signed, documents will be automatically pulled back into FYI and threaded with the original – in the same way that our existing digital signing platform integrations work.

You can also use the new myprosperity integration for document exchange – sending documents to the client or receiving them via upload.

Released 17 November 2021

Managing XPM Jobs in FYI now even easier

FYI’s new and improved Jobs Board makes it easier to view details like job budget, variance and due date – all colour coded and available at a glance. You can even display comments on the job in a single click, without leaving the Board.

And to make Job management even easier, you can now create new Jobs from within FYI! Jobs added in FYI will sync back to Xero Practice Manager.
