  4. Add SagePay to invoice payment gateway, they are one of the most popular in the UK.

    Sagepay is one of the most popular payment gateways used in the UK, it would be a huge benefit to add sagepay as an invoice payment method option in xero.

  5. API to set exchange rates

    Create and API entry point to set default exchange rates, just like we do on the Settings page.

    Rational: here in Poland, we're obliged to use the Polish Central Bank exchange rates on accounting. Having an API for it makes it possible for us the call it once everyday to set the rate for the next day. Without this we're not able to use Xero officially for bookkeeping. (we have to setup the rates for this whole calendar year!)

  6. Fix the Expense Claim dates

    The C# wrapper is looking for CreatedDateUTC, UpdatedDateUTC & Date but the API returns just UpdatedDateUTC and even this appears to be wrong in my testing (I get 2008-09-25T11:04:21.707).

    I'd like to see ReportingDate and PaymentDueDate.

  7. Client code field when setting up new clients

    Currently, there is a feature to add a client code for businesses who handle multiple clients. However this code can only be entered after the client is setup as a separate step. It would be quicker to optionally add the client code as part of the setup process.

  8. Add the "Analysis Code" field to the Bank Statement report end point

    The bank statement report API works great. For each bank line it has the date, amount, particulars, code and reference fields, however the "Analysis Code" field is not available, although it is available via the normal Xero interface on the Bank Statement view. Sometimes this field contains important transaction identifying information. Please make this available via the Report API.

  9. Allow Tracking categories and options to be specified by GUID when using the API

    If a tracking category name or option name is changed then often this isn't picked up when bulk approving invoices and invoices get entered with missing tracking categories

  10. Lets make the integrations with client details seemless

    Challenge:

    We love using Xero there are so many pluses! But…we also use add-ons which integrate with Xero. When information is pushed and pulled through, if our clients have misspelt their company name, or even written Limited as Ltd (or vice versa) it creates a whole new client in Xero even if the client currently exists (eg.if purchasing tickets through Eventbrite). We have three integrations going so this can happen three different times and for our administrators and accounts team…a logistical nightmare .

    Solution:

    I’m pretty sure a code can be developed that recognizes elements in a company name (or…

  11. Increase rate limit (or allow details to be included in invoices, etc)

    This is especially important for an initial sync of a new customer with our product as we need every invoice in the database (including the PDFs, which we are happy to trickle into the system over time).

  12. let us automatically set cost centre and region when creating a new inventory item

    At the moment, they can't be set as far as I can see and so every time I pull in an inventory item those two fields are blank and have to be set manually. For certain inventory items those two fields are always the same. In Sage you could press F6 to set from the cell above which would have been a workaround but here I have no choice but to do everything manually each time.

  13. Include ContactNumber in the response for GET CreditNotes

    GET CreditNotes has the InvoiceNumber field but not the ContactNumber field. It would be quite nice to have both.

  15. Add User element to Invoices API to allow Suppliers to approve system generated invoices

    Added to wrong section, moving here to Invoices.

    I'd like to generate draft Bills for my subcontractors via xero api, and let them review and submit the invoice. If the User element is exposed like it is in expense claims, then the invoices will be available to the users that it is attached to, and have the draft invoice role.

  16. Expose internal unique identifiers in the API when retrieving reports

    Because we currently extract accounts through reports, we don't get the internal unique identifier and have to match on number and name. If the user re-names or re-numbers an account in Xero (and this is likely to happen to other entities) we lose the connection to the account stored in our system and the user potentially loses data.

  17. Return TrackingOptionId from GET BankTransactions

    TrackingCategories returns IDs for both categories and options as follows

    <TrackingCategory>
    <Name>My Category</Name>
    <Status>ACTIVE</Status>
    <TrackingCategoryID>a020cd2b-31ac-49a4-b459-f8ffbe854e7c</TrackingCategoryID>
    <Options>
    <Option>
    <TrackingOptionID>dc167d85-6c3a-4261-b7f9-4fda00c2e38d</TrackingOptionID>
    <Name>My Option</Name>
    </Option>

    GET BankTransactions with a bank transaction id specified returns both the category id and name, but only the option name (no id).

    <Tracking>
    <TrackingCategory>
    <Name>My Category Name</Name>
    <Option>My Option Name</Option>
    <TrackingCategoryID>23333b58-b938-479c-9bdd-5a599bec698c</TrackingCategoryID>
    </TrackingCategory>
    </Tracking>

  18. Create an api for the in.xero.com portal?

    It would be cool if we could push invoices to the in.xero.com portal from other 3rd party applications, then users could import them seamlessly into their accounts.

    We continue to see great success with our new Bank Feeds API with a pipeline over over 30 Financial Institutes currently integrating and positive feedback from customers using these bank feeds.

    We’ve completed our roadmap for the next financial year and have decided to not implement a public version at this time in order to maximise opportunities in other areas of our bank feeds product, in particular PSD2 and Open Banking.

    This feature request is still on our backlog and we will be keeping an eye on this forum to understand the use case for a public bank statements API going forward.

    If you are a customer of a financial institute not integrated with Xero and could benefit from having statement data in Xero, encourage them to make use of our API, they can contact us here https://www.xero.com/nz/partner-programs/financialweb/contact/

  20. allow sales unit prices to be to 3 decimal places - to avoid rounding errors

    when a supplier generated sales invoice is received it would be nice to be able to agree to their grant total
