  3. Include TotalDiscount on GET /invoices

    Please return the TotalDiscount when searching for multiple invoices.

    Xero, indeed, only returns the TotalDiscount when searching for ONE invoice, by its UUID or Invoice Number.

  4. 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…

  6. 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 .

  8. Allow bulk retrieval of all outstanding balances by grouped contact

    Currently we can get the amount owing by querying individual contacts. However, given the API limits this becomes impossible to do on a daily basis for reporting once a reasonable number of customers is being queried.

    While it's possible it's better to do it in a web-hook-update kind of way when new information comes into Xero and is pushed externally, it would make more sense to me to have an endpoint that simply allows a contact summary to be obtained in a single API call which could have simple aggregates, like amount owing, shown.

  9. 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.

  12. Allow more than one contact with the same name so API does not overwrite existing data incorrectly.

    We have had several 'David Smiths' buy from us via our website. As the API feed sends the data to Xero - Xero looks for a 'David Smith' and then automatically overwrites existing address and phone number etc with the new info.

    The result is data that is totally incorrect. Furthermore I recently sent a product to the wrong client which was costly and embarrassing.

    The simple solution is for Xero to have a 2nd and 3rd 'identifier' i.e. email address, post code. For example:

    If the name + the email address and/or the postcode are a match then =…

  13. Offer the Account Transactions report as an ODBC table

    I would like to be able to select a table in the ODBC connection that is the same as the Account Transactions report. This allows me to create financial statements and analysis based upon the full 'general ledger' of a company's transactions data set.

  14. Make it possible to run a report featuring all account codes including those with zero balcance

    When one is running a Cash Summary or Profit & Loss, why not make it possible to view & export the report featuring all active account codes?

    This would save a lot of time formatting excel sheets if the rows lined up every time. And it seems like a simple fix, just add the checkbox:

    "Run report featuring zero balance active accounts"

  15. Default Tracking option for line items

    Hi, the Xero api offers creation of Tracking options against line items but is missing a way to add Default Tracking option for line item so that the generated line item will have this option as preselected. Currently we have to ask our customers to go and set the proper tracking option themselves. Maybe if we can have an endpoint to associate a certain option as default for the line item that would be great and save our clients the work to assign it manually.

  17. Quotes with lineAmountTypes=inclusive returning wrong unitAmount

    Unlike invoices, if lineAmountTypes='INCLUSIVE', quotes return the items with unitAmount having the tax deducted.
    Example (invoice):
    1. Invoice created with lineAmountTypes=Inclusive with 1 item with unitAmount=100, quantity=1.
    2. GET invoice returns the invoice with the item. unitAmount field is correctly showing 100

    Example (quote):
    1. A Quote is created with lineAmountTypes=INCLUSIVE with 1 item of unitAmount=100, quantity=1.
    2. GET quote returns the quote with the item's unitAmount=86.96 (86.96+15% GST = 100) which is wrong.

  19. Update the UpdatedDateUtc value on an invoice when an invoice is sent or unsent via the Xero web interface

    Sadly this is a bug not a feature request ...

    We have found and verified that invoices that are sent via the Xero web UI do not update the UpdatedDateUtc value. In the case of synchronising to an external system this makes it difficult to keep the invoice status in sync (so we can avoid expensive API calls).

    Typical use case is:

    1. A lot of invoices are created - these sync to our local system.
    2. We track the latest modified date and store for future syncs.
    3. Invoices are sent from Xero - webhooks trigger for these.
    4. We then check with…
