Overview – How to Use Blink Reports Add-On
Blink Reports frees you from manually exporting financial reports from Xero to Excel or Google Spreadsheets. Now you can chart your revenues and expenses and refresh them instantly.
The Benefits of Using Google Sheets Add-on
Blink Reports combined with Google Spreadsheets is the ultimate solution for creating reports and dashboards that work on any web browser and any mobile device. iPads, iPhones, plus Android devices can securely open and comment directly on your Google Spreadsheet reports from anywhere at anytime.
Give the boot to static spreadsheet and PDF report file attachments that quickly become out of date. Everyone always sees the same latest figures because only one live version of the report exists on Google Spreadsheets in the cloud!
Blink Reports makes creating a consolidated financial statement supremely easy. You can connect as many or as few Xero organizations as you like and they'll all show up on a single sheet, like this:
