  1. Return account & bank connection status

    It would be valuable to be able to obtain a status or timestamp of the last successful sync with the bank account. This way, we can inform customers if there is a problem with their bank or if their transactions or accounts are out of date.

  5. Add some extra data to web hook events

    Specifically for Invoices, some items like 'status' would help the code responding to the webhook to decide what to do - otherwise for every web hook event we need to access Xero to get the invoice - that's a lot of data when all I need is the status.

    There may be a case for some other fields to be included.

    Ability to assign items to a project is currently missing in the API, which makes Projects API totally useless to us.

  7. 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.

  8. Contact search should be case insensitive via API

    While creating the sales invoice via API, usually we check if the contact is already created or not, to search the contact the name/keyword must be used in the same case that is available on Xero, if its different then it will not search.

  11. Office 365 backup tool from EdbMails

    Why Office 365 backup? Well, to put it simply, taking initiatives necessary to secure important organizational information is important to the survival of any organization. Attackers often target the information that is most sensitive and would fetch them the highest ransom. If recent trends and researches on these trends are anything to go by then these attacks are getting more sophisticated with each passing day.

    The best way to protect the data most important to you is to be in complete control of it yourself. EdbMails Office 365 backup is a one stop solution that not only helps you create…

  12. make xero identify duplicate bills import from another App eg Receipt Bank

    it would be great for Xero to be able to identify duplication with synching data from other applications. Xero just can not rely on third party.
    it's going to be better selling point for Xero .

  13. To generate OnlineInvoiceUrl while creating Invoices in single API call

    Need to have a way to generate OnlineInvoiceUrl while creating Invoices in single API call so no need to do api calls twice to get the onlineInvoiceUrl using GET https://api.xero.com/api.xro/2.0/Invoices/9b9ba9e5-e907-4b4e-8210-54d82b0aa479/OnlineInvoice

  15. Multi-currency Bank Transfers

    Currently, if I try and send a Bank Transfer through the APIs between 2 accounts with different currencies, I get an error response with the message:

    "Multi currency Bank Transfers are not currently supported"

    There is a field for the "CurrencyRate" in the documentation for GET, however, setting this for a PUT call, results in the same error message.

    It's possible to do this through the UI as a user, it should also be possible to do this through the APIs.

  16. Get the list of projects and invoices / bills lines attached

    Currently, it is not possible to get the list of invoices / bills lines attached to a project. Neither via a report nor via API.

    It's only possible to get the list of invoices for a particular project in the GUI and we are not even able to get an extract of that info.

    We are using other operational systems and need to use this info. Plus, we would like to point out all invoices where there is no project attached and this is currently impossible.

    That would be awesome if we could extract this via API.

    Thank you

  18. Include TotalDiscount on GET /invoices

  20. Allow Batch Payments API for Multiple Currencies

    The API guidelines state that you can only send a batch payment in the currency of your account. E.g. if your account is in GBP, then Batch Payments can only be in GBP, even if you have a multi-currency account like we do.

    We'd like to propose allowing Batch Payments if the transaction currency and the bank account currency are the same.

    E.g. You have a home currency of GBP, but you can create batch in USD, if the bank account is in USD, and the invoices being paid are also in USD.

    Just a suggestion.
