  1. Modified date on product items should uodate when the on-hand quantity changes

    When you change something simple on a product item (say the description) then a request for modified since returns this item.

    But if the stock in-hand figure changes (because you've sent an invoice) then the modified date doesn't change and this item isn't returned in the atli query.

    So, in effect there is no easy to tell (via API using modified dates) when the stock on- hand has changed. You would have to load all items every ten minutes to know what the current in-hand stock is... And then you would get rate limiting issues.

  2. Be able to specify the company required at login

    We are operating with multiple companies within a single Xero account. It would be more secure if we could pre-select a company rather than leaving it to the user to select one after they have logged on.
    In PHP we call
    $XeroOAuth->request('GET', $XeroOAuth->url('RequestToken', ''), $params);

    i.e. Can we include the company in the $params?

  3. Provide API to retrieve Customer Invoice Reports

    We'd like the ability to retrieve customer reports (as data and in PDF format). We could attempt to re-assemble the reports ourselves but for consistency we'd like to be able to retrieve them directly from Xero.

  4. Webhooks - support for Payments endpoint

    Now that the Webhooks for Contacts and Invoices is in open beta please add support for the Payments endpoint as the next endpoint to be supported. Many of our customers need to be notified when a customer has paid an invoice and update their internal CRM systems. Would love to be able to do this without having to poll for new payments.

  8. use Contacts' tax details on invoices

    This almost seems to be a bug, since the Xero web interface works differently than the API.

    In the "Tax" section for a Contact, the help message states: "Each account you code an invoice to will have a default rate as specified in the Chart of Accounts but if you have specified a rate for the Contact here, this rate will override the default rate from the Chart of Accounts."

    This works when adding an invoice using the web interface, but adding an invoice using the API results in the wrong tax type and wrong calculated total.

  11. deposit

    Create Batch Deposits -
    https://help.xero.com/au/BatchDepositCreate
    Does the API support this specific function? Is there a functional issue as to why this is not supported, or just never requested/not enough votes??
    Apologies if it is supported - I could not find it anywhere on developer pages etc.
    THANKS

  12. Pass the PDF attachments when sending an invoice through the Xero to Xero network

    Currently when you send an invoice via the Xero to Xero network it does not pass a PDF copy of the invoice as an attachment.
    You have to download and re upload the PDF which takes away from teh benefits of sending through the Xero to Xero network

  13. Allow Custom URL Schemes

    Currently the URL elements of various Xero resources appear to reject URLs that do not fit the http or https scheme. It would be very helpful if this barrier was removed.

    Both OS X and iOS are seeing an explosion of applications that implement custom URL schemes as a way to hook or callback. https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/iPhone/Conceptual/iPhoneOSProgrammingGuide/Inter-AppCommunication/Inter-AppCommunication.html

    My personal use case is a custom built warehouse management system. Our established application is hosted on premises, with client runtimes on OS X and iOS. We're integrating as a private app to Xero and will be pushing in contacts, payables and sales. All of…

  15. Add a "Retry now" button to force webhooks in "Retry" status

    If the webhook listener goes offline, the webhook server will try to send the data with increasing delays up to 24 hours where it will stop.

    The issue is that if our listener crashes during an extended period of time, we might have to wait for an extra long period of time before it is retried.

    Adding a "Retry now" button would allow devs/admins to restore the webhook to their "OK" status much earlier (ie. as soon as the listener has been fixed).

  16. Create more granular accounting scopes (eg: Sales - Invoice only)

    Right now there is a very wide range of APIs wrapped up in the "accounting.transactions" scope, with no way to provide more granular access within these APIs (https://developer.xero.com/documentation/guides/oauth2/scopes#organisation-scopes).

    This means that it's not possible to grant access to something quite narrow without also granting access to other things that are often not needed. For example, you cannot grant permission to creating/manipulating Sales Invoices without also giving access to all Bank Transactions at the same time.

    This problem is perhaps accentuated for Custom Connections, which are designed to be used for "in house" integrations, as ALL developers with access…

  17. Insert invoice lines via the API

    Currently you can do this only by resupplying ALL current invoice lines along with the new line. There is a concurrency issue here between when the invoice was read via the API and resupplied to the API for the update. Can you make it so we only have to supply the new invoice line to the API and it be added to the invoice?

  19. invoke receipt sending via API

    The sending of receipts is fine for one off... but when there are many, it becomes tedious. Could it possibly be enabled to be invoked from the API, so that a whole lot could be sent automatically?
