  2. Ability to change ExpectedPaymentDate on invoice within lock period

    The web UI allows us to change the expected date on an AUTHORISED invoice that is issued before the period lock date. The API however does not allow this, and fails with warning about editing invoice in lock period.

    Contacting Xero support, I got this message: "With the web interface, there is a script that limit fields that can or cannot edited when lock date is used. Unfortunately the API does not have that ability so currently it is all or nothing. So to edit the invoice, the lock date has to be removed first. We don't have any immediate…

  5. GET Invoices & GET CreditNotes need more detail of credit notes

  6. Be able to overide a currency rate for an invoice raised in a foreign currency

    In the app you can override the currency rate with your own. Would be great to do this with invoices generated via the API as I get my rates from another provider (ie. not XE)

  7. update the updateddateutc when an invoice is modified

    I noticed that the value UpdatedDateUTC for an invoice is never reset once it is put into Xero no matter what modification I did to an invoice such as add/delete a line item or add a reference at Xero. Thus the updated invoices can not be retrieved even though they did update after modifiedSince

  8. 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

  12. archive contacts via the API

    Ability to archive a contact. The user should have a way in Xero to view archived contacts and restore them – this could just be another automatic contact group like customers and suppliers are which shows as a tab in contacts where they can view the archive list and restore the selected contacts. Archived contacts should not appear in any of their custom ‘contact groups’ but the links should not be removed so if they are restored they return to the original groups.

    Today’s API release provides the ability to archive contacts via the API. http://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/v2-release-notes/#2.50

    We still have some work to do on contacts, including allowing developers a way to see merged contacts: http://xero.uservoice.com/forums/5528-xero-core-api/suggestions/89557-when-contacts-are-merged-show-this-status-for-the
    And also to merge contacts via the API: http://xero.uservoice.com/forums/5528-xero-core-api/suggestions/5885401-merge-contacts-via-the-api

    Please show your support on these requests if they are important to you.

  13. Integrate Magento into Xero.

    I mean, it's only the fastest growing and one of the most widely used ecommerce softwares available today. Many people on the Magento forums have been asking for a solution to accounting and Xero would be perfect. (I know that there is already a company that created an integrator, but they charge a monthly fee! It's just one more unnecessary monthly expense)

  15. Enable an Attachment for Accounts Receivable (invoices to be sent)

    Attachments (one actually) are permitted for Receipts and Accounts Payable. They would also be very useful for Accounts Receivable (invoices to be sent to customers).

    Common attachments to be emailed with the Invoice are timesheets, quotes, and copies of acceptance certificates.

    Attachments help getting the customer to approve an invoice, in turn helping to get the cash back faster.

    In the December 2010 release of Xero, we added a feature for users to define custom branding themes using .docx invoice templates. These templates are used to generate PDFs of invoices and statements. These docx invoice templates can use any language you choose.

    See http://blog.xero.com/2010/12/design-your-own-invoices/ for more informaiton.

    The Xero API has since been enhanced to allow invoices to be created, referencing different branding themes. Once an invoice has been created, the PDF of the invoice can be downloaded via the API.

    See http://developer.xero.com/api-overview/http-get/ and http://blog.xero.com/developer/api/invoices/ for more information.

  19. Allow blank invoice items when creating invoices

    Example http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/6735/invoicelinebreaksexampl.png

    Add the ability to enter invoice items without specifying quantity, unit price or anything else. And have all these fields blank on the invoice. You can already do this through xero, just not via the API.

    Perhaps some sort of line seperator item?
