Void Sale does not sync. If you void a sale in Hike, does not report back to Xero. Need to manually go into Xero and change the report for any past sales.
Hike requires a company name and first name.
Ensure these details are in Hike, otherwise, will not sync all details from Hike to Xero.

This will be dated as of date received (not when invoice created). Note Supplier details must be correctly listed to sync.|
