Each month, our team releases highlights of what has changed in Bill.com and posts them to our Support Center.
Get all updates here:
March 2020 - Release Highlights
iACH Payments to Canada
To expand your international payment options, you can now choose to send iACH payments or wire payments to your vendors in Canada. iACH payments take 1 business day to deposit to your vendor, vs same day with wires, but iACH payments do not have any bank fees to your vendor. When you set up a Canadian vendor, you can select either method for payments, and change it at any time.
Google Authenticator for backup MFA
Use Google Authenticator as another way to get backup multi-factor authentication (MFA) codes. Google Authenticator is a free downloadable mobile app that provides a new code every 30 seconds for apps linked to it. Once setup, you can open the app and use the current code as backup MFA in Bill.com.
February 2020 - Release Highlights
Lead time preferences, which determine the default process date of your payments, can now be set between -60 and 100 at the account and vendor levels.
You can now turn off the notification that lets you know your customer has created an invoice, in your notification preferences.
International wire exceptions
If your international wire encounters a delay or exception, we will now update the payment's arrives by date in the payment record, when the exception has been resolved.
Check number sync
We will now sync check numbers from Bill.com payments to QuickBooks Online, in the payment memo field.
Bank customer or vendor sync
To continue complying with federal recordkeeping laws, if a piece of important info is missing from a vendor or customer in your accounting software, the vendor or customer will not update in Bill.com and you will see a sync error letting you know what is missing.
December 2019 - Release Highlights
Multi-factor Authentication (MFA)
MFA at login
In order to reduce interruptions to your workflow, especially at key times in the process, MFA at login has now be enabled for all users. This means when logging in, an MFA code will be required, then you will not be prompted for a code again unless you log out and back in, or you want to add a backup number, change your primary or backup phone numbers, or change/reset your password.
When entering codes, you can also know select to trust each device, which means you will not get prompted for a code on that device for 30 days, unless you want to add a backup number, change your primary or backup phone numbers, or change/reset your password.
MFA for Approvers
Prior to this release, users with the Approver role were not required to set up MFA due to their limited permissions. You can now request that MFA is enabled for your Approvers if you wish. Please contact Customer Support to have this enabled. Also, even if your Approver does not have MFA enabled, they will now be required to enter a phone number and then a code if they request to reset their password. The code will only be required that one time to reset the password, unless they do have MFA enabled.

September 2019 - Release highlights
With this release, we have added the option of editing business type and purpose of use to the Company Profile, on accounts that are not set to Individual Household and Government or Non Profit.
With this release, we have updated the audit trails of bills, so that the actions of all approvers will appear in the audit trail, rather than just the first and last.
Billing Statement Export
You can now export individual billing statements to a CSV, if your account is either not on an Accountant's Console.
We have enhanced the Network Icon by adding a number to the orange notification dot, indicating the number of pending invitations.
We have added a vendor type field to vendor records, which is required by some countries to send international wires. This field is required and will need to be updated when adding new or editing existing vendors.
New countries available for wires
59 new countries were added to our International wire offering with this release! See the article below for details.

Click and Capture will now work on IBAN or Swift codes in inbox documents, to make setting up an international wire vendor via quick add as part of bill creation flow easier.
