  1. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. Ledger for particular account shows corresponding Accounts

    Existing General ledger report gives understanding Summary/detailed Dr and Cr amounts but it does not tell you which Accounts are involved in transactions. Ability to create Summary Ledger for particular Account that shows correspondence with Accounts according recorded transactions. It is very useful to find mistakes if your allocations were wrong. For example, when you created bill and mistakenly choose wrong GST type or expense Account. Another good reason for monthly/quarterly reconciliation AR/AP. For example, creating AR ledger you will see aggregate or detailed amounts of Bank/Cash accounts, GST and Customer deposits. If you made mistake when you reconcile bank…

  6. Tracking CategoryID/OptionID parameters in Trial Balance endpoint.

    Adding in the tracking CategoryID and OptionID parameters to the trial balance endpoint would allow for easier & more detailed analysis across multiple tenants in client-specific use cases. The capability exists in the UI via the "new" Trial Balance, so there's a disconnect between the expected level of detail one can get from the UI vs. the API.

  9. SIE file report/export

    SIE is a universal data format to exchange accounting information between different systems.

    Our auditor prefer having a SIE4 file, which he would import into his own system, to do the final revision and making necessary documentation for the government. W/o this file he has to tap in the data manually, which takes more time and cost us more money.

    We would like to add the SIE file format as an alternative for export.

    For mor information

  10. 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"

  11. Please update your Reporting APIs w/ option to get V2 [new] Balance Sheet and Profit & Loss including the default custom layout.

    Please update your Reporting APIs w/ an option to get V2 [new] Balance Sheet and Profit & Loss including the default custom layout.

    It is extremely frustrating that the report that comes from the API often in no way resembles the report that the Xero end-user actually uses via the UI, to the point that they don't even recognize it. They invested a lot of time making a custom layout with groups, rules, etc and the result is a pretty fantastic presentation of their financials, but all that work just gets thrown out when a 3rd party application collects the…

  13. 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.

    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

    The Xero reporting api needs an overhaul to enable to report content in a format that makes it much easier to parse and retrieve data from it. The current way the data is represented requires custom parsers to be created at the consumer's end
