You will have to reauthenticate your Xero Credentials by logging in to Xero. (This will need to be done by the user who has admin access to Xero)
Where do I find the Attachments in Xero
When you post your invoices, the attachment will show in the invoice list, and on the invoice. See below.
How the attachment shows on the Xero invoice depends on whether you're using Classic Invoicing or New Invoicing. If you want to include the attachment with the invoice you set it here:
Classic Invoicing (attachment is at the top)
New Invoicing (attachment is at the bottom)
How Attachments work in Xero
The attachment in Xero is only visible to you and other users of your organisation.
