  3. amend the account transactions report

    include the proper payment or sales description inputted. The report currently shows the supplier / customer in the description column and doesn't pull through the actual description e.g. flight for programme manager to attend conference.
    I need separate columns for the description I entered and for the supplier /customer for donor reporting and I currently have to mess around with several different reports to put the information together for our donor.

  4. AccountID to come across with Payments when getting Invoices from Xero API.

    Hi there,

    At most when I am doing a GET for Invoice details; the payment details that come across do not have the AccountID

    This is the maximum amount of information I am ever getting from a Payment on an Invoice

    PaymentID => 22974891-3689-4694-9ee7-fd2ba917af55
    Date => 2017-10-18T00:00:00
    Amount => 148.50
    Reference => Chq 409

    But if I do a Get on the Payment ID I can grab the full details;

    Can we get the AccountID to appear within the Payments array of a GET Invoice request?

    Thanks

  6. fix the Balance Sheet report via the API to support periods and timeframe

    You have recently completed "fix the Profit and Loss report via the API to support periods and timeframe", but not for Balance Sheet.

    This means can't do weekly cashflow reporting as balance sheet items are end of the month only which defeats the purpose of the P&L fix as need to balance this across to the balance sheet.

    Should be able to do as at any date.

    BUT can do this report via the Xero Reports in Xero. Needs to be consistent.

  7. allow Xero-to-Xero connection to reconcile balances between connected companies.

    I'm new to the concept of connected companies, despite having about a dozen related companies all on Xero for several years. Until now, we've manually captured the invoices that get raised between the companies.

    Is there not a dashboard tool of some sort that could get added, so show the balance owing in one company vs the balance receivable in another, thus allowing easy confirmation that the balances reconcile and that all transactions have been considered by both parties?

  8. Allow XML file types to be uploaded as attachments to invoices

    We have electronic invoicing in Costa Rica and a legal requirement involves creating a xml file and sending it to the customer. It would be great if we could upload this xml file as xml rather than a txt to the actual invoice as reference in case the user wants to send the invoice with the xml included to their customer.

  9. supply non .net date format via API

    I understand that you are using the Microsoft .NET JSON date format internally but would it be possible for you to return a more agnostic version of the date in a seperate field e.g. UpdatedDateUTCAlt?

  10. Schedule of Planned Payments

    The Schedule of Planned Payments shows a total of the bills in £ Sterling. However we pay some bills in Euros, the total needs to show in Euros for those invoices.

  11. add an endpoint for BankStatements so we can read the bank feed through the API

    We need to automatically recognize certain payments withing the daily bank feed statements and create overpayments on the respective client accounts.
    The information is already available as the lines of the statements are available in the portal so it is just a matter of exposing it through the API.
    Currently this is done by our accountant which takes a lot of his time for no good reason as this can easily be automated.

  12. Add assign purchases field to the bottom of sales /invoicing screen - this option is available in purchases but not sales.

    Add "Assign purchases" field to the bottom of sales /invoicing screen - this option is available in purchases but not sales.
    We assign expenses to customers while invoicing - If we have multiple trades it would make life easier if at the bottom of the sales invoice scsreen i could assign billable expenses here.

  14. Let us customize - Add/ Create fields to suit our businesses!! Myob does.....

    Each business is different and requires different information and fields. = it would be great to be able to customise or add fields.

    currently you can from the purchases to assign expense to customer - Give a Reverse for this option and put this to a sale screen and assign expenses - This would help eliminate double entry as we enter sales before purchases.

    Let us customize to suit our businesses!!

  15. Use F6 to copy down line above as Sage does. Would save so much time when entering invoices

    Can you please add a feature similar to Sage that copies the cell data above when pressing F6. Great for entering sales and purchase invoices rather than having to select from drop-down lists etc - would save so much time. ie, descriptions and our specific analysis cells.

  17. Batch payment API by InvoiceNumber instead of InvoiceID

    Thanks for the current batch payment API. it works with InvoiceID.

    Can you please update this API by allowing to use the InvoiceNumber instead of InvoiceID.

    The InvoiceNumber is much more user-friendly and actually used by accountants instead of the long ID, that needs an extra lookup.

    Can you please let us know when can you update it?

    For example:
    <Payments>
    <Payment>
    <Invoice>

    <InvoiceNumber>ORC1039</InvoiceNumber>
    </Invoice>
    <Reference>ggg</Reference>
    <Amount>10.00</Amount>
    </Payment>

  18. Migrate the Pay Run API from Payrolls

    With the Payrolls functionality being deprecated, the Pay Run https://developer.xero.com/documentation/payroll-api-us/pay-runs API will also be deprecated. By our understanding, this functionality, will still be available via the web UI ("Business > Pay Run"). Maintaining this subset of functionality after the overall Payroll deprecation would be useful for tools such as importers of 3rd Party payroll details.

  19. allow for overpayments against a non bank account

    I would like to be able to post over-payments to a control account instead of to a bank account as all other regular payments can be done to control accounts.

    If you attempt to post an overpayment via the banktransactions endpoint to a non bank account , you get "the specified bank account details does not match a known bank account" error.

    However, it is possible to post an overpayment to a non bank account via the UI. It would be great if this could be replicated via the API

  20. Extend Bank Transfer transactions API so that all fields available through Xero's UI are also supported through API

    Currently only 4 fields are supported through the API for Bank Transfers transactions – Amount, From Bank Account, To Bank Account & Date.

    It would be great if the remaining fields that are available via Xero's UI could also be supported in the API:
    API - namely:
    - From Account: Accounts Export Branch
    - To Account: Accounts Export Branch
    - Reference
    - 2 Amount fields (if From & To bank accounts are in different - currencies).
