Upcoming changes: speed improvements!

Welcome to the A2X Accounting blog! We'll post here periodically with articles to help you use A2X, tips for doing your accounting with Amazon and also any product updates.

In this post, I wanted to let you know about some upcoming changes to A2X that address the speed issues. We have been hearing your feedback and we have improved the way we access the Xero data to make some big improvements in page load times.

This means that when you view an A2X page, the Xero data we present may not be up-to-the-minute fresh. We're caching the values so we can load our pages quickly, but if you have recently added/edited a chart of account or tax rate, we won't have that data in A2X yet.

In the settings section you can force A2X to update the latest Xero data using the button shown below.

(You may also have noticed we tidied up the settings area with tabs instead of a long, unruly settings page!)

The caching has improved some page load times by up to 90%, so for heavy users of A2X, we're pretty sure it's going to be a much more pleasant experience.

The release will roll out the week of May 4th. If you have any trouble with it, please let us know on a2x@export-x.com.
