Create groups to organise your clients in Partner Edition

You can create groups to categorise your organisations. Group them by business type, frequency of review or account manager, depending on the size of your practice and client base. Only the Principal or a Practice Administrator can add, delete or modify groups.

About Partner Edition groups

Once you've set the access level for a group you can't edit it. You'll need to select all the organisations in the group and move them to a new group with the correct access level.

  • You can edit the name of a group you created by clicking Manage Groups.
  • An organisation can be in more than one group at a time.
  • Staff members have access to the practice wide group if they have access to at least one organisation added to the practice wide group.

Add a new group

  1. Click New group...

Restricted Access group

If you're a Principal or Practice Administrator, you may have a Restricted Access group in My Xero. This group is created automatically and includes any practice organisations that you haven't been given access to.

Click on the name in the Staff access column to see who in the practice has access.
