Repeating invoices via the API
Be able to create and manage repeating invoices (http://help.xero.com/#Accounts_RepeatingInvoice) via the API.
Hi all, I’m pleased to announce this functionality is now available - see the developer documentation here. You’re a patient bunch, and we thank you for bearing with us! - Lance

Thank you for pushing this feature.
Can you please advise how to 'tick' the 'Auto pay' offered which is available on the regular UI ?
Lewis Jenkins commented
Lance, GREAT NEWS!
If you had to give a ballpark time frame what does that look like? Because I do not know how long SDK work normally takes Xero
Hi all, we’re so close!
The functionality is now ready - we’ve been doing limited testing, and are now working on the SDKs. We’ll update again once we’re good to go, thanks again for your patience.

Hello Dan, any updates on this yet, I have been watching twitter/roadmap and yet to see anything there :(
Hi Dan, is there any update on this?

Another vote pushing for this. 3 months ago you expected to release "early next quarter". Must be soon?!
John Millis commented
Hi, I'm very glad to hear this is being worked on and maybe with us in Q2.
Having this will save a lot of manual work for our accounting team when our CRM (which already extensively uses the powerful API) can handle repeating invoices also.

Another vote for this... is there an ETA as to when this will be released?

... and by coming soon based on your previous response times that still could be years!!! Another 3 months gone and still no "More info"

Wow, yet another disappointment. Not sure what's worse, the fact that is not actually possible is staggering, but knowing it's been a feature request for over 10 years and all you can provide is a 'coming soon' is just a blatant disregard for your customers. Reading some of the comments below, it's clear Xero just keeps missing the basics and ignoring customer feedback. It's causing real pain for so many users - many who have had to ditch Xero as a result.
If this is how Xero leadership wants to treat its customers, then that really should tell you everything you need to know about the future of this company.
Can't wait for this to be implemented. Currently researching other accounting platforms as I've had to hire someone to manually create the repeating invoices.
Please can we have an update on when the creation of repeating invoices via the API is due to be available

Come on seriously, whats taking so long???
Craig Colbran commented
So it has been 10 months since the last update where you advised the work was delayed. During this time there have been 17 requests for an update with no response. The original request for this feature was (I think) in 2011. Some update with real timelines would be greatly appreciated.

This feature is badly needed. Without the repeating invoice support, the automation via API is incomplete
Cameron Lewis commented
Any update on this, we just decided to go ahead and use Xero to accept payments and auto-charge function, only to find we will manually need to add all the repeating invoice templates manually! Seems crazy this is missing from the API?!

This is the third highest item in the top ideas list. The 2 above it are marked as not planned. What's the point in having a community ideas forum if your not going to listen to the ideas and feedback submitted.
Would love an update here please!
Can we have an update please? I'm probably going to lose an integration project as I hadn't noticed this wasn't available.
