  1. Align the decimals for invoices & bills (7 digits) with payments (6 digits)

    Through Xero API, invoices and bills can be created or updated with up to 7 decimal places while payment transactions can only be created or updated with up to 6 decimal places, it would be great that payments transactions could also be created/updated with 7 decimals

  2. Ability to access Practice Manager staff billable rates

    It would be really useful to be able to access (and ideally edit) staff billable rates via the Practice Manager API.

    Many other fields can be accessed via the Staff endpoint:

    https://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/practice-manager-3-1/staff

    This would be a really useful addition.

  3. API support for deleting Prepayments and Overpayments

    API support to delete/void prepayments and overpayments will add benefit to keep our system in sync with Xero without the need for manual intervention.

  5. Expose employee cost rate data through an API endpoint

    Currently, we can enter employee cost rate data into Xero, but this data is not available back to us through the API. This limits our company's ability to accurately track project profitability, especially through more sophisticated solutions using BI tools outside of Xero. A simple solution would be to expose this data through the Projects endpoint (User table) or another Xero API endpoint (Accounting?). Such a limitation has sparked recent conversation in our LT to migrate away from Xero as our company grows > 50 employees. Without this data available in the API, messy workarounds are implemented externally.

  6. To show 2 active tracking categories on the payroll timesheet

    Whilst 2 active tracking categories are shown on Sales invoice, Bills and manual Journal entry.
    On the payroll timesheet entry only shows 1 of 2 active tracking categories.
    Could we please have 2 active tracking categories appear on the payroll timesheet entry ?
    Thanks

  7. Support compression in API request / response

    It would be great to support compression e.g. gzip for API response payloads. Currently including the Accept-Encoding header within requests does not result in any resource size reduction.

  8. Allow Prepayment Attachments to be Uploaded via the API

    It's currently not possible to add Attachments to a Prepayment via the API.

    It'd be nice if we could access this at "https://api.xero.com/api.xro/2.0/Prepayments/{Guid}/Attachments/{Filename}" to bring the functionality in line with the GUI.

    We currently have access to: Invoices, Receipts, Credit Notes, Repeating Invoices, Bank Transactions, Bank Transfers, Contacts, Accounts, Manual Journals, Purchase Orders, Quotes (https://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/accounting/attachments).

    Seems like the standard and infrastructure is already there, it would be nice to have this one soon, thanks!

  9. Allow booking of time entries on Jobs I am not assigned through in the API for XPM

    In XPM you can create a time entry for a Job you are not assigned to. However this is not possible if we are making the time entry through the API.

    The API should offer that possibility as it is the same as in the browser.

    The API is not allowed to reproduce the same behaviour as in the the portal which is a bug.

  10. Ability to create Practice Manager invoices

    It's possible to get details of Practice Manager invoices using the Invoices API endpoints:

    https://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/practice-manager-3-1/invoices

    However, it's not possible to create or update invoices using the API. It seems to be possible to create and update most other objects using the API so why not invoices?

    This functionality would be very useful as invoices are a fundamental part of the system.

  11. Ability to update Practice Manager time sheet entry "Billable" field

    The Practice Manager API allows the editing of most time sheet entry fields via the Time PUT Update endpoint:

    https://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/practice-manager-3-1/time/#put-update

    However, for some reason it doesn't currently allow toggling the Billable field.

    It would be really useful to allow editing of this field along with the ability to edit the rest of the time sheet entry fields.

  12. Enhance API to include Invoice Created By information

    Created by is an important audit field and minimally allows the broader organization to know who to go to for questions...E.g. Think PM getting Invoice questions from customers and then needs to speak with whomever created the invoice to review.

    Additionally, this impacts many 3rd party integration tools such as Breadwinner that aim to surface Xero data into other systems. The better enabled integration partners are, the more successful Xero will be in growing with customers and entering larger companies.

    Enhancement / Use Case:
    Enable API to be able to include the name of the person creating an invoice via…

  15. Provide the OpenDate and ClosedDate in the Projects endpoint

    The Projects endpoint of the Xero Projects API does not include the OpenDate and ClosedDate as fields.

    These are useful for users to report with and should be included.

  17. Add Expenses endpoint to the Projects API

    The Projects module of Xero allows you to capture expenses. However, this data cannot be retrieved from any endpoint.

    It would be good if an Expenses endpoint was added to provide the list of expenses add to projects (including estimate cost and revenue information).

  18. Update Xero Projects API endpoint to Include estimated costs

    The Xero Projects API / Projects endpoint include an estimate field that provides the estimated revenue.

    It would be good to add an additional estimateCosts field to provide the estimated cost so as to be able to calculate margin for a given project.

  20. Udpate Projects API Endpoint to deliver Contact Name as it does in the internal endpoint.

    The Internal Endpoint used on the website delivers more fields than the endpoint in the API.
    Internal Endpoint: https://go.xero.com/api/projects/projects?status=INPROGRESS

    API Endpoint: https://api.xero.com/projects.xro/2.0/projects?status=INPROGRESS

    While the internal Endpoint delivers the contactName, the external endpoint does only provide the contactId. To fetch the Contact name a user needs to get access to the whole accounting module which is nonsense. The contactName should also be delivered where the id is delivered.
