  3. Is it possible to have the Management Report and more budget reports available to export via API?

    I use QWD and would like to see the Management Report exportable as well as more budget reports eg budget per month from budget manager.
    This would allow far more flexibility in building reports and dashboards.

  4. Get mapping of companies with all embedded integrations

    Suppose, I have more than 500 companies to manage and each one uses different integrations eg: routable, adp, toast, square etc. How can I see which company is associated with how many integrations. I want to have a report or api that can provide me that information.

    Otherwise, there might be a possibility that for example: "Company A" in Xero might accidently or by human error be connected to "Company C" in routable instead of "Company A". Having some kind of metric can help in auditing/correcting such things else it could be a recipe for disaster.

  5. Get the percentage of income in the Profit & Loss API

    The profit & loss api requires a % of income exported into their json it'll help report devs like me working on the custom reports to avoid complicated calculations on the reports and bring flexibility of data in the API

  6. Allow API Access to run the Bank Reconciliation Report

    In lieu of being able to interact with the Bank Feed information directly via the API - it would be useful to be able to run the Bank Reconciliation Report directly from the API.

    The use case in mind is:

    I would like to set up a proactive notification when there are incoming amounts that are not reconciled in Xero in order to prompt someone to go in to Xero and manually reconcile those items. This will help prevent our customers from getting automated invoice reminders when they've paid.

    We're not at the point yet where someone is in Xero…

  7. Get-BalanceSheet API for reporting should spit out data as of the input date parameter

    I've been working with GetBalanceSheet reporting api, I realized while fetching data for all dates and found out that it is returning data pointing to the last date of the month in the input date.

    Example:

    Get-Balancesheet API
    date: 10/24/2021 (mm/dd/yyyy)

    API returns data as of 10/31/2021 instead of 10/24/2021

    Get-IncomeStatement does not have this issue.

  9. Add the date a transaction is created/finalised to appear on all reports as an option

    I have clients that do there own bookkeeping but are on partial exemption VAT and they are forever changing things in prior VAT periods. It would be useful to have a date of the transaction in all reports as it would be easier to make the required adjustments. This also relates to aged debtors/creditors and transaction reports as it would speed up the process of identifying any new transactions that were posted in earlier periods.

  10. Generate reports by using specific identifiers in the "reference field"

    As a building business it would be nice to ascertain the costs of a specific build/client to ensure the company is on track with profit/loss per project.

    When I started out in Xero, and when all purchases were been entered in as drafts, when a certain reference was entered, such as the client name or job number, a running total was always displayed as to how much was spent on a particular build/client.

    Ironically once the purchases were approved and/or paid, upon typing the same specific reference, would no longer provide a tally or what was spent, to be paid…

  11. Budget Variance Report via the API

    I would like the Budget Variance Report to be available via the API:
    https://central.xero.com/s/article/Budget-Variance-report

    It is not listed in the reports available from the API

  13. Sort your reports out

    Why are Xero reports so frustrating??? Is it just me?
    Another one that has wasted extreme amounts of time, the vat audit report.
    Why is it spread over a ridiculous area so you have to view it in wide view to see any useful information. What is the point? It fits it on a normal view then expands itself and you lose half the useful information?

    Then you have to randomly click all the blue underlined options to find the ONE that drills down to the detail. You check what you need to - ie why the hell there are…

  14. Include also zero balances account in result

    When an account has a zero value in the P&L Report (but also in all others), it is excluded from the returned data.
    The request is to provide in the result all accounts, even if they have 0 balance and/or no transactions

  15. Create API to get information from Inventory reports (sales by item)

    I would like an API which tells me the same information as I can see in the Sales by Item report, this would mean I can see how much I sell in a month, or selected dates, of a particular item.

    For example I have an item called hourly rate I would like to GET the total invoiced in the month for hourly rate

  16. add an option BankSummary to include accounts with zero balances and no transactions

    When an account has a zero balance and no transactions for the specified time period in the Bank Summary Report, it is excluded from the returned data.

    The request is to provide an optional parameter, 'includeZeroBalances' or the like, that includes these accounts and displays them in the report with zero balances.

  17. create a new report for suppliers customers

    We need a report which can show all activity in suppliers/customers ledger by date ie invoice date, description, payment date. I cannot see anywhere a report like that which would be very useful.

  18. Make it possible to run a report featuring all account codes including those with zero balcance

    When one is running a Cash Summary or Profit & Loss, why not make it possible to view & export the report featuring all active account codes?

    This would save a lot of time formatting excel sheets if the rows lined up every time. And it seems like a simple fix, just add the checkbox:

    "Run report featuring zero balance active accounts"

  19. Trial Balance Report - Add Parameter to specify sort order

    At the moment the Trial Balance report via the API can only be sorted by Account Name. I would like to see a new parameter to allow us to specify the sort order for the report, e.g. by Account Name or Account Code. These are the same options available in the Xero UI.
