  1. Be able to see if an invoice has been emailed

    At the moment the invoice Status field only shows draft/submitted/authorised/paid.

    Would be realy great to be able to see if an invoice was emailed after authorisation, and also if the invoice has been emailed once fullpayment has been made.

    Thanks

  2. Include the IsReconciled field when returning multiple Payments from the GET Payments API

    IsReconciled is included in the Payment API, but is not included when multiple payments are returned.

    This would be exceedingly useful for monitoring which payments have been reconciled, without having to individually request their entire details details in separate API requests.

  3. API History (log) for OAuth 2.0 apps.

    We used to get OAuth 1.0a app history on developer.xero.com/myapps but no longer for OAuth 2.0 apps. Can we have this back?

  4. Allow posting to bank accounts via the API

    All that is required is that the Invoice API be changed to allow posting to the bank accounts. Then it will serve as a general transaction import function.

  5. Support oauth_callback during request for an unathorised request token

    Allow a oauth_callback URL to be specified for each call to authenticate rather than a single URL location for the entire application.

  8. Retrieve contactGroups on GET request for all contacts

    As far as I can tell you can't get contactGroups when doing a GET request for all contacts. You can only retrieve them when requesting a singular contact.

  9. Add DELETE functionality to things like Items and Accounts

    Currently we can populate items and accounts through API calls but we cannot remove them using a delete API call.

    I understand if an Item is being referenced withing an Invoice Item it probably can't be deleted, but would like the ability to at least flag the item or account so that it can no longer be used.

  10. Credit notes: enable file attachments

    Enable attachments on credit notes - support the files functionality in Xero via the API so files can be attached to credit notes in Xero.

    Do you have some interesting use cases? Share your ideas so we can assess the priority of this feature.

  12. Include contact id on GET /invoices

    When retrieving invoices using the GET /invoices method the contact portion does not contain the Xero contact ID or contact Code therefore an additional series of GET /invoice/invoiceID method calls are required to establish the contact.

  14. Add Reference field to BankTransfer end point

    It would be very useful to be able to add a reference field to Bank Transfers. We are using the API to create many Bank Transfer transactions and many of them have the same date and dollar amount, making them nearly impossible to reconcile. Simply exposing the reference field would solve this issue.

  15. Notify via email when webhooks is disabled automatically

    The custom webhooks are disabled automatically if there was not a successful response from the destination for 24 hours. There is no notification when this has happened and to check this we need to go to the webhooks page and then manually enable it and re-send the ITR.
    There could be email notifications sent when the webhook is disabled.

  17. Allow you to specify the tax on an invoice rather than have Xero calculate it

    The system I use for generating invoices calculates tax on the subtotal rather than each line as Xero does. Because Xero applies rounding to 2dp on each line items tax total then sometimes the total tax does not match my system. I need to be able to enter invoices so the totals match my system

  18. Add the new multiple email address functionality to API

    Hi there,

    A recent update to Xero now allows for multiple email addresses for each contact to be added. It would be great we could add multiple email addresses through the API, mirroring this process.

    Many thanks
    David

  20. allow Contractor invoices coded to 321 CIS Labour Expense to post via API

    CIS API.

    Recently started using simPRO enterprise where Contractor invoices are raised against specific jobs and exported into xero.
    These Contractors are subject to CIS Tax Liability and therefore line items should be coded to 321. unfortunately Xero currently does not allow for Contractor invoices using 321 to be imported through API.
