  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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

  7. 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.

  8. Manual journals: enable file attachments

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

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

  9. API improvements for mobile devices

    At the moment, the Xero API authentication model does not support authentication and connection via mobile devices in a practical way - the only option is the public application type giving 30mins of access.

    While changes are not currently planned, please add your vote and use case here if you would like to be able to connect directly to the Xero API from a mobile application.

  12. enable sending multiple invoices to the same address as one message

    I haven't been able to find a way in which I can send multiple invoices to the same contact as one email message rather than individually. I wouldn't imagine this would be difficult to do and am surprised I have not been able to find a way to do this.

    This would be useful when there is a quantity of invoices to go out at the same time. Currently I have fear of overcrowding the customers inbox.

  13. Expose Contact Financial Details Tax Exclusive/Inclusive/NoTax via the API

    Return this setting for a contact under Financial Settings | Sales Settings as a LineAmount type https://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/types/#LineAmountTypes to allow this to be used to set the <LineAmountTypes> in the creation of an invoice for this contact with the appropriate Invoice Tax Line Amount Type.

  15. Define a schema for the final version 2 REST services

    Currently no schemas exist on the developer release of the Xero REST services. Many languages provide useful tools for XML serialization that require a schema. Providing a schema will allow developers to integrate with Xero quickly, as well as ensure that the data format is consistent.

  16. Start programming thing that really matter and really update the software

    From almost 2 years I've seen NOTHING really happening to Xero. Looks the same, works the same, missing same things.
    From initial hype went to total stagnation.

  19. Make addresses available in reponse of GET Organisation like you do with GET Contacts

    It would be great if the Organisation's addresses were available in the response message of GET Organisation, just like the addresses that are available in the response message of GET Contact.
