  3. Make the BrandingTheme for a contact customizable

    Currently the field 'BrandingTheme' is only returned on a GET request. We would like to have this field customizable, so we can change the theme used based on info in our CRM

  4. Be able to email attachments on invoices

    When I send invoices to customers I have to attach the correlating support data to the invoice. At the moment I can attach the support data but I can't email it out from Xero. I therefore have to download each invoice and then manually generate an email from my email system for each customer in order to attach the data and invoice in a single email... a laborious process at the start of each month!

    Life would be so much better if I could email attachments along with the invoice directly from Xero. This functionality is literally the only thing…

  5. integrate batch payment export into a banks payment system

    I believe it is possible to export a batch payment file for subsequent import into your internet banking solution. It would create efficiencies to build outward direct bank feeds to set up payments on Bills. Then make it available via the API to set due/ payment dates and create payment batches.

  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. Be able to extract via API bank balances in Base Currency or in Foreign Currency of Bank Account

    Currently API can only get bank balances in Base Currency from Reports -> Bank Summary. This means it is all converted into the Base currency by XE.COM. There is no way to convert this back into the original currency, XE.COM rates are not available vis the API. There should be a way of getting the bank balance in the origin al currency.

  9. Give the API the ability to provide the minimum of every report that Xero has

    I have found an awesome tool by Quick Win Development (http://www.quickwindevelopment.com/) that allows us to extract data via the API straight into Excel.

    Because 80% plus of the reports I ever generate in Xero are exported directly to Excel, please can Xero build into the API the ability to replicate every report currently supplied by Xero, as a bare minimum seeing as though the Reports are diabolical compared to other accounting systems. Particularly for me the P&L by month for a start/end date period.

    Thanks
    Murray

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Xero Workpapers API

  18. 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.

  19. Approved Invoices:: Should have the facility to "Revert it back to draft"

    Once an invoice is approved, it should have the facility to "revert it back to draft"

    It is because of the reason that mostly, my client ask me to approve the invoice and then says that it's not yet approved and then i don't have the facility, ultimately it is showing in our accounts that an overdue invoice is available, which is actually not yet approved.

    Xero should facilitate us in such a way.

    Thanks

  20. 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…
