    Thank you for raising this request! We currently have Xero Accounting on our roadmap to build an out-of-the-box connector in the 2H of 2023. I'm moving this to "Planned for Future Release", and will update with the corresponding epic when we officially start developing this connector. Keep in mind, this is subject to change if we run into legal/account obstacles when assessing development for the applicaiton. Thank you!!
