Understand wanting fresh news from us here now in Feb 2021, everyone. While we have made headway, the work toward an Azure SSO is going to be a lengthy and longer journey, and we want to be upfront that this project is likely to span the next few years.

Good news to kick things off, is that 2020 gave us the chance to test our development with a small group of practices and partners. Results were pleasing and are helping the teams continued progression of this SSO service.

We know that SSO is important, especially for our larger practice customers. And this is where development of the Azure SSO is going to be primarily focused.

In parallel, this team are working on another large piece of work surrounding Xero's authentication service - enhancing current process to create a more seamless path to setting up your security, and accessing Xero.

When there's more substantial news, we'll swing back in to share this with you all.
