  1. Reconciliation API

    It is very important to add an API that would allow us to pull the reconciliation data in order to connect it to our customized platform where we can add more AI logic which will make reconciliation much faster and easier.
    We can pull all bills and invoices, and it would be great if we can integrate the reconciliation of Xero in order. this way our developers can implement the logic that works for our business

  2. automatically insert a Pay Now button when an invoice is emailed to a customer via the API POST function

    Currently the Xero API allows us to trigger the emailing of a Xero invoice to the customer via a POST command.

    If a Payment Service is already set up in Xero, the emailed invoice should automatically include the Pay Now button.

  3. On Attachment of supplier invoice against PO, update the POs UpdatedDateUTC

    Upon Uploading a file to a Purchase Order in Xero the UpdatedDateUTC value does not update.

    We are looking to pull all files linked to POs into our system and currently need to send a list of POs to check for attachments against, instead of easily knowing which PO has an attachment added since the last time we completed an API call.

  4. unlock reconciled transactions so that updates can be made via API

    Currently, you can update reconciled transactions in Xero. However, reconciled transactions are locked (read-only) and can't be updated via the API. Users want to be able to update reconciled transactions via the API (add descriptions, change accounts, etc.).

  5. deferred

    Our business uses deferred income, and my accounts person makes an excel sheet everything month to calculate it (I only discovered this the other day)

    Having revied the invoice API, it would be awesome if

    1) A field called diferredincome to the invoice item, so that we can flag an invoice on creation as diferred, and export that information via the api. The field value would be number of months. E.g. a difered invoice over a year would have the value of 12.

    2) Create a diferred income report using this data.

    3) Create the journal entried for the diferred…

  6. Search for a purchase order number using the API which includes a forward slash

    We are creating purchase orders in Xero which have a purchase order in the format of: 'ABCDE/123'. These are coming from DataBuild. When using the PurchaseOrders API endpoint, we are unable to search for purchase orders due to the forward slash character. Have tried using various escape characters in the API call, but it does not work. The Xero API Explorer also fails when running the same call against the PurchaseOrders endpoint, yet the purchase order exists in Xero. We would like to be able to search for purchase orders using escape characters.

  7. Allow Calculating leaves in days and not hours

    Please allow calculating leaves in days and not hours. Some Xero users prefer calculating leaves in days.

  9. Allow 20 characters in Phone Number field in New Zealand and UK

    Problem:

    The Xero phone number field only supports 13 characters in New Zealand and the UK. We have build an integration between Xero and BambooHR that is used by mutual companies in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. It has become a global necessity to keep mobile phone numbers with a country prefix. 13 characters, your current Xero limit, is not long enough and needs to be lengthened.

    Solution:

    We propose that Xero allows 20 characters in this field as BambooHR and many other companies now do.

    Benefit:

    Happy mutual customers who can data entry effectively important communication numbers.…

  10. Practice Manager API returns the Last Modified Since value which you can search for

    The Practice Manager API allows you to restrict the list to anything that has been modified since a particular date. The issue is that the value isn't returned on the response.

    We would like that field to be returned so we have visibility on the exact last modified time.

    https://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/practice-manager/clients#get-list

    modifiedsince=yyyy-MM-ddTHHss

  12. allow control for the default email when sending invoices

    When sending an invoice through Xero.com the format includes a "Pay Now" button. I wanted this when sending an invoice through the API.

  13. Add If-Modified-Since optional parameter to Xero Projects APIs

    We are trying to sync customer's Tasks across Xero Projects, currently we have to poll for all Tasks on each Project. Some customers are using 200+ 'active' (state= INPROGRESS) projects, however they are only adding 5-10 Tasks a day spread across these projects.

    If we were able to query the /projects endpoint with a 'If-Modified-Since' parameter (or header) and the result only contained projects either updated direct or those that had associated Tasks added/edited, then we would only need to call /projects/:id/tasks for those ProjectId's, likewise if this endpoint also could be queried with If-Modified-Since then only those new Tasks…

  14. Long lived tokens for testing purposes

    Our challenge is with our test and verification setup: we have 4 stages of pre-production environments and every environment runs CI (Jenkins) with full tests each night and relevant tests with each code push. With this setup it is very challenging to share and update shared refresh tokens.
    We would like long lived tokens (access and/or refresh) for testing purposes only.
    Other services we work with have been able to change settings on app/client id level.

  18. Short-term cash flow - include draft invoices

    I love the new cash flow feature, but I would love the option (a tick box that you could turn on and off) to include draft invoices.

    When I set up a client we sent 3 invoices. I usually send the first, and make the next two as drafts. But this means these are not included in the cash flow projection.

    I would love to be able to see these included or at least an option to choose to see them included.

  19. Attach pdf invoice when emailing invoice via API

    There is currently no way to attach the invoice PDF to emails when emailing from the API. We've had to resort to sending the link in the template used to email our customers. However, our customers prefer having an attachment instead of going to a link to download it.
