  1. Import bank statement lines via the API

    Be able to import bank statement lines into a bank account in Xero. This would be useful for custom bank accounts or banks that do not have a direct feed into Xero

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. integrate google wallet with xero bank account and payment system

    google wallet now allows customer send funds (from credit/debit or bank account) to a business google wallet. I'd like to have xero recognize google wallet as a bank account, so it could receive transactions from it.

    in addition, we'd like to be able to make payments (payroll included) using google wallet

    thanks for considering

    PS. as it stands now, a third party can not write such an integration because the Xero API for banking/payment is not available.

    If this request is not considered, alternative suggestion is to introduce new Xero APIs so this integration could be done by a third…

  6. 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

  8. Fix Bug: Override TaxAmount in BankTransaction Endpoint

    Suggestion: Allow the overriding of the TaxAmount within the BankTransaction Endpoint. This currently works through the UI but not the API.

    Issue: Importing a 'Spend' BankTransaction using the API with an adjusted TaxAmount results in a Validation Error:
    [Message] => Tax amount 936.09 is incorrect for INPUT2 tax type, should be 187.22

    Works: Using the UI
    Doesn't Work: Using the API

  9. Remove validation to allow 0 value spend money transactions on bank account to move money between accounts

    Currently it's possible to add a 0 value transaction on a bank account using the web interface by clicking "New Transaction" selecting "spend money" then adding a positive sum to one account and a negative sum to another account.

    When attempting this with the API you get a validation error "The Total for this document must be greater than zero".

    This is a simple request to remove the additional validation on the API to allow this transaction to be added (like you can in the web interface).

    Something similar can be achieved with a manual journal, however these don't support…

  11. Save Bank Statements in xero

    It would be great if there were somewhere within each of the Bank Accounts where we could upload/scan and store Bank Statements within xero as auditors need to see these regardless of whether we say that the account is reconciled.

  12. Bank Rules Ideas

    Hello, I have a couple of ideas...
    1. Add Alphabetical SORT feature in Bank Rules
    2. Duplicate an existing Bank Rule, slightly modify and choose a different bank account to add it too.
    Thank you
    Warm regards

  14. Reconciliation search box to allow multiple search words separated by commas

    Many people want the bank reconciliation api feature but since Xero wont do that, here are 2 ideas for helping some people reconcile invoices

    1. Allow multiple search words in the search box
      We have clients who pay 50+ invoices all in one batch. They give us a statement in pdf and csv but we have no way to enter that into the xero search except for 1 at a time. Allow us to make a list of invoice ids as a comma separated string and copy paste that into the search box

    2. Next to the search box, add an upload…

  17. lock a bank account once reconciled

    It is too easy to stuff up the bank reconciliation. There is no alert that the account has been reconciled when you are changing transactions. There should be a way to lock a bank once it has been reconciled.

  18. 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.

  19. Allow BankTransactions to import to Accounts with "Enable payments to this account" ticked

    Currently Bank Transactions can only be posted to accounts of Bank type. It would be great if they could be posted to any account that has the "Enable payments to this account" box ticked. For example a customer pays a deposit (prepayment) via electronic or online means - some users like to put this to a clearing account or undeposited funds before posting to the bank account.
