October 2019 DataDear release



Welcome to the October release which is primarily focused on improving the various features launched during Summer. The team also launched an improved online Dashboard in preparation for more functionality which will be offered from this platform. New pricing plans have also been launched as part of this update.

Major Improvements to the DataDear Dashboard

The DataDear online Dashboard has received several improvements including ability to search for companies / organisations - particularity useful for larger firms who have hundreds of connections.

Introducing Pricing Plans

DataDear has been using a pay per connected company approach for a few years and this might have worked for some users but was complicated for larger accounting firms and groups. New pricing plans effective immediately are available on the pricing page.

Note: All accounts active by the end of October 2019 will remain on their current pricing unless they opt to move to the new pricing plans

Xero Account Transactions


Major rework on this DataDear report. It is now easier to download the list of transactions from Xero and eventually append new transactions instead of having to redownload all transactions. The main toolbar now changes mode based on the user input and focus to help with the automation of this function.

  • QuickBooks Transactions List report - major improvements to improve performance.

  • Xero Account Transactions report - several minor improvements and includes both tracking categories.
