    The Xero app now allows you to have control over the sender’s name, email address and reply to address (see http://blog.xero.com/2013/06/more-control-over-your-emails/) which was a key requirement for using the API to trigger an invoice to be emailed. Previous Xero releases also added the ability to have online viewing of invoices and email templates for sending invoices, statements etc.

    In amongst our other top developer requests we are now actively looking at how we can offer this functionality to developers.

    Please remember you can download PDF’s of invoices which allows you to email invoices yourself and you can also mark these invoices as sent.

        How has this not been done yet? It's been "planned" for nearly 2 years! Come on, Xero. I have customers who also use Xero complaining because their invoices don't get passed to them through the Xero Network.

        We would also like the ability to send invoices from Xero to Xero (using network keys).

        Come on now, how much longer do we have to wait for this simple but necessary functionality?

        Any update on this feature since, 2013. This feature is also very important to us.

        am I right in thinking that after creating an integration solution for my client...I can't get the solution to auto email the invoice for the client?

        If you need any help ... just rip of freshbook..... this is a key request and what's the point of requests that have been requested for 3+ years..... and not produced.

        I don't get xero sometimes.

        Wow it has been 3 years going on 4 years. Is this feature going to get built within the next 3 months -- or never?

        Is there any news on this? Looks like lots of people really need this feature available.
        Hopefully it's not gonna take another 3 years!

        Still waiting anxiously for the ability to email invoice with payment link through the API.

        Sending invoices by email is the one remaining manual task of our website reservation system.

        we've waited a long time for this feature - the combination of being able to trigger xero emailed invoices c/w paypal integration shifts the load of having to add payments to our site and would be excellent .. come on xero it can't be that difficult - any chance of committing to a delivery date?

        We have recently added support for email templates in Xero ( see http://help.xero.com/#EmailTemplates ). The next stage of work is to let users set a sender address which our team is working on now. Once that is in place we'll look to add support for triggering the sending of invoices via the API. After that we'll consider adding support for other documents.
