update tracking category for PAID invoice via api
Since the operator has the ability to update any PAID invoice's tracking category and account code for any line items, then it should be also doable via API.
Hey everyone, I know a few of you are keen for this one so I'm pleased to confirm work to edit paid invoices is currently in progress, and we're expecting to release next quarter. I'll update and close the thread once released.

Editing fields as per the web interface would be rather handy to have. I don't see a good reason to allow editing in the UI but not via the API.

Any update on this request?
We have recently had the need to categorize ALL our past invoices. Manually categorizing tens of thousands of invoices is just NOT possible!
PLEASE add this feature to the Xero API!!!!!!!!

Since this can be modified via the web interface, it is extremely frustrating that it is inaccessible to the API. We are using a third-party app which sends transactions without any tracking and to a single account code for all transactions.
We are going crazy imagining coding all of our invoices manually!
I have already written a xero-gateway (Ruby) app which talks to the API and was almost finished when I discovered that I wasn't allowed to save the record.
Completely agree with this. I would also add the "account code" piece to the title of this request, since it's equally as important as the tracking category.
