When merging contacts the system seems to treat them as a delete so we can’t differentiate them from a full delete. Ideally they should show a status of merged and the ID of the contact they were merged with that way we could perform the same action in the CRM of merging the contacts history rather than deleting them.313 votes
The MergeToContactID field is now available on the Contacts endpoint and shows the destination of a merged contact.
When you GET a Contact via the API you are returned the ContactGroups that they belong to. But if you try and update their ContactGroups with a PUT or POST the API will just ignore the ContactGroups XML element.
It would be really useful for automating the organisation of Contacts, if you allowed us to update the ContactGroups for a Contact in a similar way that you can add LineItems to an Invoice.75 votes
We are glad to announce the release of the ContactGroups endpoint which allows this functionality: https://community.xero.com/developer/discussion/6512619/
It is now possible to add notes to many of our accounting resources including contacts.
Expose the organisation and contact default due dates on GET Organisation and GET Contact respectively. Xero now supports setting default due dates on an organisation wide or per contact basis.48 votes
You can now retrieve the default payment terms for an organisation and also for a specific contact. See http://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/organisation/ and http://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/contacts/
Support for updating these via the API will come in a later release – please vote on this other request – http://xero.uservoice.com/forums/5528-xero-api/suggestions/4376082-set-payment-terms-via-the-api
When using the AU Xero there is a field for ACN which is great.... except that it's not in the API Response for contacts. If that could be added it would be awesome. Thank you40 votes
You can now retrieve the ACN as the CompanyNumber field on the Contacts endpoint.
I can see you can GET the payments terms of a contact and the organisation defaults, but I'd like to be able to set these via the API too21 votes
The ability to update payment terms was released on 14/09/2015 http://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/v2-release-notes/#2.145
Thanks for you patience.
Ability to archive a contact. The user should have a way in Xero to view archived contacts and restore them – this could just be another automatic contact group like customers and suppliers are which shows as a tab in contacts where they can view the archive list and restore the selected contacts. Archived contacts should not appear in any of their custom ‘contact groups’ but the links should not be removed so if they are restored they return to the original groups.18 votes
Today’s API release provides the ability to archive contacts via the API. http://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/v2-release-notes/#2.50
We still have some work to do on contacts, including allowing developers a way to see merged contacts: http://xero.uservoice.com/forums/5528-xero-core-api/suggestions/89557-when-contacts-are-merged-show-this-status-for-the
And also to merge contacts via the API: http://xero.uservoice.com/forums/5528-xero-core-api/suggestions/5885401-merge-contacts-via-the-api
Please show your support on these requests if they are important to you.
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.12 votes
By specifying the optional ‘page’ parameter on GET Contacts, additional elements are returned, including any groups to which the contact belongs: http://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/contacts/#GET
This is now possible using the Contact Groups endpoint: https://community.xero.com/developer/discussion/6512619/
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.
Support for this feature was released today: http://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/v2-release-notes/#2.37
Archived contacts appear to be included in the contact lists returned by the API. I would be useful if these contacts were flagged in the result set say.4 votes
Enable attachments on Contacts - support the files functionality in Xero via the API so files can be attached to contact records in Xero.
Do you have some interesting use cases? Share your ideas so we can assess the priority of this feature.0 votes
Today we released the ability to attach files to this endpoint. For details on how you can use it, see our Attachments documentation: http://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/attachments/
The only way to currently check which contacts have been deleted is to make an API call for each. See https://community.xero.com/developer/discussion/24201/0 votes
