History & Notes
Expose invoice History & Notes through the API
There should be a field indicating the last modified date of an invoice. At least multiple fields, one for each status, with the date when the invoice was changed to that status. Or just expose the history entries for an invoice.
This is related to the post "update the updateddateutc when an invoice is modified" you said "If you're keen to see this implemented soon please vote for it", Are you kidding?. How can I vote if has a "completed" status. By the way the status should be rejected, you aren't completing nothing, just saying "we desing this wrong because the field name should be PaidDateUTC " And why you dont have a way of getting the info, if Xero always store a modification in the history entries?.

Just moved to Xero and assumed this feature would be present. We'd like to see this for Invoices and Payments so additional "unstructured" information which is important can also be recorded.

Have you even tried this? The Xero interface does tell you if the invoice came through the API. If you want to check this on a third party system, just store the fact you sent it through to the API in the first place.
