  1. Open up the Pay Run (Global) to the API

    It is currently not possible to get/post/push data related to the payrun for the global edition. This limits integration with systems who can help with the administration of the payroll.

  2. 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.

  4. include BARCODE field in Item

    hi guys,

    if a BARCODE field was present in the item it would enable using a barcode scanner when pick and packing the Xero order/invocie.

    Also, most items / products these days have a unique standard barcode and this would enable greater integration between Xero and EDI (Electronic Integration between suppliers )

  5. 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.

  6. integrate google wallet with xero bank account and payment system

    google wallet now allows customer send funds (from credit/debit or bank account) to a business google wallet. I'd like to have xero recognize google wallet as a bank account, so it could receive transactions from it.

    in addition, we'd like to be able to make payments (payroll included) using google wallet

    thanks for considering

    PS. as it stands now, a third party can not write such an integration because the Xero API for banking/payment is not available.

    If this request is not considered, alternative suggestion is to introduce new Xero APIs so this integration could be done by a third…

  7. Add a URL field to the CreditNote object to bring it in line with Invoice.

    The CreditNote object has no URL field, unlike the Invoice object.

    I suggest one is added which is clickable on browsing to the page for that credit note.

  8. Store application data against invoices, payments, credit notes, etc.

    Allow an extra field so that the application can store data with the invoice, credit note, purchase order, payment, etc.

    Other third party sites allow this in the form of an array, in Xero's case, this would be XML an data field or JSON data field.

    This will enable apps to quickly access data using their own pointers, or variables, etc.

  9. incorporate LawPay into your payment services options

    Many lawyers cannot use just any Merchant Services provider, but Law Pay provides the necessary features for firms. It would be great if you could partner with them as Clio does.

  11. Add the ability to filter by Updated Date on Files API

    This should be similar to the Modified After parameter for invoice requests. The UpdatedDateUTC field is available int the body of the file response and users would like the ability to filter on this.

    This is in lieu of webhooks notifying users of the file API of changes, which is a separate requested feature.

  12. Expose Check Number(s) to API

    Today, we use another system for writting checks and we need to add the check information to Xero.

    The API allows us to create an invoice for the check and then upload the invoice. However, the API does not allow us to associate a bank account and then check number with the payment of the invoice.

    I know that there is some reason that this the case. There could be an instance where a user tries to associate a previously used check number to the invoice payment. If Xero were to throw a blanket error (eg, "Some of the transactions…

  15. Apply Branding Theme by name

    Currently only way to add a Branding Theme to an invoice via API is by specifying the BrandingThemeID parameter.
    This is rather impractical as BrandingThemeID has to be unique across all of Xero, so if you hardcode the ID for your real Xero organization, when you go to try something with your demo organization, this will fail as ID is not the same, even if the name is.

    On the other had Xero already forces you to have unique names for your branding themes, but these are supposedly only unique within your organization, so you could have a Branding Theme…

  17. 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.

  20. Cash Flow Forecast

    I would like to be able to do a monthly cash flow projection. I would start with the cash flow from the past 12 months. I would present the average for each line item and give the forecaster the option to increase or decrease the figure for the coming 3 months. It would need some work to break out the revenue figure by account and to give a way to put in a projection for accounts or opportunities yet to be won by the sales team.
