Repeating invoices via the API
Be able to create and manage repeating invoices (http://help.xero.com/#Accounts_RepeatingInvoice) via the API.
Now that we can create authorized invoices via the API, it would be handy to be able to create recurring invoices as well.
We want to give you an update on this as we appreciate many of you are waiting patiently.
We have not yet prioritised adding support for creating repeating invoices via the API (though retrieving them has been completed).
It is very much our intention to do so, but it will not be happening within the next 3 months. We will give an update again in 2-3 months with some news.
We have added an update on keeping you better informed on feature requests in the future also: https://community.xero.com/developer/discussion/10480255/
Embarassing. Just write the code. Market cap $2.5bn, 1,000 employees, can't even write some simple code to add a simple feature. Really really embarassing

Any news/update on this? Most of our invoices are recurring... and September 18, 2011 was long time ago...
'Beautiful accounting software' more like 'chit accounting software that can't even phukin create and manage repeating invoices'
Andrew McCallum commented
+1, at least 80% of our billing is recurring and this will make it possible to manage so make Xero something we can move to
Matt Rosenhein commented
Having this implemented (with place holder text element) would make adoption far far easier for us. +3.
Toby Tremayne commented
+1, this is the single obstacle to adoption for us, and really makes the whole thing useless without it.
Nathan Carter commented
+1 for the ability to create repeating invoices via the API.
Is there any update for forecasting repeating invoices?
Please add this feature. We need it. We will not pay for this software until it's inside.
Any update as to when the repeating invoice will be able to be created via the API. It has been almost 3 months since your last update and I am currently reviewing which accounting software to choose and this is a significant deciding factor for our business. Even if just a ballpark, such as couple months or a year, etc. Thanks.
This would be very helpful. Please implement this soon.
Any news on this?
We really need to create repeating invoices via the API.

This is a rather difficult API endpoint to call at the moment since the XML schema for it is missing and may client libraries are generated from the schemas: https://github.com/XeroAPI/XeroAPI-Schemas/issues/9
Being able to create repeating invoices via the API would be very useful, it would save us a lot of time
