  2. Display the AR/AP contact balance in API in both base currency and contact currency

    Currently the API only displays the contact balance in base currency and NOT the contact default currency.

    This makes it extremely difficult to confirm synchronisation drift between our systems through the current balance.

    Please include two currencies in the AR/AP contact balance object.

  3. Contacts' creation date exposed in API

    Would enable the measurement of new business. e.g. number of new customers since the start of the year and their $ value.

  4. Add ability to delete a ContactGroup

    I can create a new ContactGroup through the API yet I cannot delete that group?

    The documentation states "The DELETE method is used to remove a contact from a contact group or remove all contacts from a contact group."

    Neither of which I want. I want to remove the entire ContactGroup from existing.

  5. CIS Fields on Contact via API

    There is currently no way to set or retrieve CIS fields via the api with the exception of:
    - CIS Enabled (GET ONLY)
    - CIS Value (GET ONLY)

    This request is to be able to GET POST AND PUT all contact CIS fields via the API including:
    - CIS Enabled
    - Registered CIS Name
    - CIS Rate
    - Organisation Type
    - Unique Taxpayer Reference
    - Subcontractor Verification Number
    - National Insurance Number
    - Customer Registration Number

    NOTE: Although Customer Registration Number is not under the CIS section, it IS mandatory if CIS Type is set to Limited Company so this…

  7. Be Able to get Contact Usual Payment Days

    It would be good to be able to get the usual payment days number which is shown in Xero's contacts page through the API in order for displaying that data in in house software used to rate customers payments against their established payment terms.

  9. Expose Additional Contacts - First Name, Last Name, Email address

    Can we please have the ability to view all additional contacts, first name, last name and email address, if we use the GET request to pull ALL contacts.

    At the moment this is only viewable, by looking up individual contacts which can quickly use up API calls which I need for the other applications of my web app.

  10. Fix the Contact creation API to fail when PUT-ing a duplicate contact that has been archived

    Currently (Jan 2016, API 2.0) using the API to PUT a new contact fails when its email is in use by an existing contact - as would be expected.

    However, if the contact that has the duplicate is archived, the PUT will SUCCEED, returning a new contact ID and everything. However, the new contact will not actually be added. This can be done repeatedly, each time "generating" a new contact ID.

    Given this, there is no way to ensure that a given contact has been added via the API before attempting to, for example, create a new Invoice via the…

  11. Be Able To Get Customer Credit Rating Through The API

    Given that credit ratings can now be shown for customers in the main application I would like to suggest that the credit rating, even as a number or as a descriptor (matching the rating gauge in the main interface, be made available through the API in the contact payload data so that when viewing customer data through the API the credit rating can be seen as well.

  12. Different Contacts under the one company for example - Sales, Purchasing, Accounts Payable, Accounts receivable and the General Manager..

    It is frustrating when i send statements or invoices and i have to go in and individually delete the sales emails and other general contact details. I have them all ticked to include in emails though as I need to send my invoices to accounts payable and the salesman but statements go to another accounts person . When we purchase from the same customer we have to send to accounts receivable. It would be great to have different Contacts so when i click send statements i dont have to delete the rest of the contacts.

  13. Contact search should be case insensitive via API

    While creating the sales invoice via API, usually we check if the contact is already created or not, to search the contact the name/keyword must be used in the same case that is available on Xero, if its different then it will not search.

  14. include the Group ID field in the Clients API method for Xero Practice Manager

    This is more for the WorkflowMax/Practice Manager API but as I can't seem to find a community site for that product I'm posting here. It seems like an oversight to not include the group ID. Can this be added please.

  15. reminder

    Optimise the collection process by having an automatic 'reminder' date (day/week) or a manual action to remind you to follow up outstanding account for payment. A calendar format to set action / follow update. Perhaps integrate with MS Outlook to include email attachments for follow up action.

  16. Change of bank account - checkbox and/or prompt to verify that you have verbally confirmed the account details are correct for Suppliers

    Change of bank account - checkbox and prompt to verify that you have verbally confirmed the account details are correct for Suppliers. Date functionality of when you confirmed would also be beneficial.

  18. Toggle Notifications via API

    Provide ability to turn off invoice reminder notifications for specific customers via the API.

    Failing this, provide a way to set up notification rules so certain patterns of customers aren't notified of follow ups.

  19. Can we have the old feature of the A-Z tabs at the top when searching for contacts?

    We used to have A-Z tabs on the top of the window to enable us to search for a contact. Could this feature be re-enabled as currently we cannot browse the contacts - we have to type in a name.

  20. add the ability to hide empty fields for clients

    When in the Client view, it would be helpful if you could opt to only show fields containing data.
    With the ability to enter a large variety of data fields, the page is quite long, however, for many clients a limited number of fields actually contain data.
    If the view could be minimised to only show the fields that actually contain data, the page would be shorter and easier to see the information at a glance without the need to scroll through the page.
