  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. Send invoices to other accounting systems via their APIs

    You can already do a Xero to Xero invoice. I would like to link in to other on-line invoice aggregator services via their API and send an invoice to them electronically. I have a couple of multi national clients who refuse to accept invoices that are emailed with PDF attachments. They want me to use their invoice aggregator which either costs me money (if I integrate using their API) or time if I log on to their portal and manually enter each invoice (yeah right!).

    Currently the "Inventory Item Details" report shows all the sales per item, but very difficult to work with. Can you please incorporate a Slaes for the period column in the "Inventory Items Summary"

  6. API report Sales by Item

    Provide API to get report Sales By Item. because it will help to analyse sales by Item (Product). Now we can generate the report but I don't see API to get report data as other financial report.

  7. have a discount field in purchases

    When clients have Retail Express and applying the discount on purchases in Retail Express there is no possibility to import the original price and the discount received when doing the import. A solution would be either to have the discount per line or at least under total balance of purchase have a field of "total discount applied" to this purchase...so the original price can be still found. When checking that the imports are correct at present it causes confusion and a lot of going back and forth to find out wether bill had been imported with discount and what the…

  8. Be able to opt-out of invoice contact summaries

    For example, creating invoice payments return invoice contact summaries in responses.

    If contact details are required on the client side the result is a subsequent API call to retrieve them.

    In this case the overhead of the subsequent call is greater than the cost of returning the information in the invoice payment response. This issue is compounded due to Xero API's rate limiting on requests.

    An optional parameter 'enableSummaries=false' would be nice.

    I understand that for cases like retrieving multiple invoices that summaries are useful but for single result responses, such as invoice payments the current functionality seems inconsistent. The…

  14. <CurrencyCode> in invoices endpoint is ignoring lower case currency code

    When I send "<CurrencyCode>usd</CurrencyCode>" to a CAD base ledger (with USD as a valid currency) the invoice currency becomes CAD. But if I change it to "<CurrencyCode>USD</CurrencyCode>" then it works fine. (data is coming from Stripe, which uses lower case).

    Xero should always capitalize the currency code.

  15. deposit

    Create Batch Deposits -
    https://help.xero.com/au/BatchDepositCreate
    Does the API support this specific function? Is there a functional issue as to why this is not supported, or just never requested/not enough votes??
    Apologies if it is supported - I could not find it anywhere on developer pages etc.
    THANKS

  16. Supply <Attachments> elements in standard endpoints when `page` is given

    Currently, it seems that you need to make a separate call to get <Attachments>. Being able to get this supplied on the standard invoices/bank transactions/manual journals/credit notes endpoints when page is given would help lower the number of API calls without much increasing the amount of data sent.

  20. allow ItemID to be specified when adding line items

    It seems to be possible to supply the ItemCode but not the ItemID. I guess the ID is unique for each item? It would be really great in my opinion if the API could be consistent and the ID field was always used to specify a join whenever you are creating or updating anything.

    Consider the following use case:

    A web app with integrations to xero to do all of the invoicing, and inventory price management. Contacts (users), orders (invoices) and products (items) are stored in the app, but also created in xero. The app then stores the xero id…
