  1. Short-term cash flow - include draft invoices

    I love the new cash flow feature, but I would love the option (a tick box that you could turn on and off) to include draft invoices.

    When I set up a client we sent 3 invoices. I usually send the first, and make the next two as drafts. But this means these are not included in the cash flow projection.

    I would love to be able to see these included or at least an option to choose to see them included.

  4. Long lived tokens for testing purposes

    Our challenge is with our test and verification setup: we have 4 stages of pre-production environments and every environment runs CI (Jenkins) with full tests each night and relevant tests with each code push. With this setup it is very challenging to share and update shared refresh tokens.
    We would like long lived tokens (access and/or refresh) for testing purposes only.
    Other services we work with have been able to change settings on app/client id level.

  5. Add If-Modified-Since optional parameter to Xero Projects APIs

    We are trying to sync customer's Tasks across Xero Projects, currently we have to poll for all Tasks on each Project. Some customers are using 200+ 'active' (state= INPROGRESS) projects, however they are only adding 5-10 Tasks a day spread across these projects.

    If we were able to query the /projects endpoint with a 'If-Modified-Since' parameter (or header) and the result only contained projects either updated direct or those that had associated Tasks added/edited, then we would only need to call /projects/:id/tasks for those ProjectId's, likewise if this endpoint also could be queried with If-Modified-Since then only those new Tasks…

  6. allow control for the default email when sending invoices

    When sending an invoice through Xero.com the format includes a "Pay Now" button. I wanted this when sending an invoice through the API.

  7. automatically insert a Pay Now button when an invoice is emailed to a customer via the API POST function

    Currently the Xero API allows us to trigger the emailing of a Xero invoice to the customer via a POST command.

    If a Payment Service is already set up in Xero, the emailed invoice should automatically include the Pay Now button.

  9. Search for a purchase order number using the API which includes a forward slash

    We are creating purchase orders in Xero which have a purchase order in the format of: 'ABCDE/123'. These are coming from DataBuild. When using the PurchaseOrders API endpoint, we are unable to search for purchase orders due to the forward slash character. Have tried using various escape characters in the API call, but it does not work. The Xero API Explorer also fails when running the same call against the PurchaseOrders endpoint, yet the purchase order exists in Xero. We would like to be able to search for purchase orders using escape characters.

  10. deferred

    Our business uses deferred income, and my accounts person makes an excel sheet everything month to calculate it (I only discovered this the other day)

    Having revied the invoice API, it would be awesome if

    1) A field called diferredincome to the invoice item, so that we can flag an invoice on creation as diferred, and export that information via the api. The field value would be number of months. E.g. a difered invoice over a year would have the value of 12.

    2) Create a diferred income report using this data.

    3) Create the journal entried for the diferred…

  11. Customisation of packing slip

    There needs to be a simple way of customising the inbuilt packing slip (and accessing it) rather than having to go in and change the view.

    Or can you please amend it to at least include a signatory section for the recipient to sign as Proof of Collection and change the name to Delivery Note.

  12. Get, Post and Delete project Expenses

    Currently, project endpoints are only available for projects, tasks and time. Unfortunately, expense for projects aren't available. Projects are an important feature for many businesses including construction and I've had numerous clients request this. This information can only be pulled via a detailed project report but the layout and format are very limited. So if the client would like to integrate the data to a CRM or format it a particular way they aren't able to.

  13. Add batch support to the Assets API

    CURRENTLY

    The Assets API only allows POST requests of one Asset at a time.

    ISSUE

    If you need to create a lot of assets, that's a lot of POST requests.

    SOLUTION

    Support batch POST requests e.g. Payload = { Assets: [ ...assets ] }

  17. Enable Bank feeds to public

    Allow bank feed to be retrieved via Xero API. All I want to do is allow my staff to see what payments have been received in the last day so they can release equipment. Very basic. But I go through paying the subscription and setting up the whole thing just to find that obvious and needed option is not available?? If I try to setup an API with the NAB thats going to be a nightmare. Its all there in Xero - if we log in we can see it. So why not allow access with an API?

  20. Chart of accounts via API - bank accounts

    As the Organisation creation wizard limits the import of Chart of Accounts to 1000 when they exceed this they need to be imported via the API. Causing additional pain to transfer the bank balance from the chart of account type pushed in via the API to a newly created chart of account to connect the bank feed to.

    The constraints on the API is that the Credit cards and Paypal account types can only be created as type Bank Account type. This means that the client is unable to connect the correct Bank feed as the Account Type is incorrect.
