  1. when contacts are merged show this status for the API

    When merging contacts the system seems to treat them as a delete so we can’t differentiate them from a full delete. Ideally they should show a status of merged and the ID of the contact they were merged with that way we could perform the same action in the CRM of merging the contacts history rather than deleting them.

  6. be able to filter getAccounts depending on type of request

    Would be nice to only show those accounts that are valid for a particular purpose.e.g entering an Accounts Receivable invoice , entering an Accounts Payable invoice rather than listing all accounts. Filtering on a specific type maybe useful as well. e.g. Assets, Liabilities

  7. add Receive Money transactions via the API

    We commonly expect to receive cash from within our organisation; ie: depositing a float, or cash takings from a sale. Rather than invoice ourselves, a simple Receive Money transaction would track and account for this nicely.

  11. allow tax inclusive invoices via the API

    at the moment invoices have to be specified with their tax exclusive amounts, which leads to some invoice totals being unavialable. I would prefer to specify the tax inclusive amount, and have Xero work out the tax portion

    You can now approve invoices via the API . See our latest release notes for more details – http://blog.xero.com/developer/v2-release-notes/

    At this stage the scope of this work is limited to allowing you to enter approved invoices and not trigger the sending of invoices via email. You can vote on that request here – http://xero.uservoice.com/forums/5528-xero-api/suggestions/1930769-be-able-to-email-approved-invoices-via-the-api

  14. Bulk fetching of invoice payments within a date range

    Rather than having to query the API to get payment information for each invoice consider allowing a date range to be specified and return all invoices that have had payments applied
