  1. Add assign purchases field to the bottom of sales /invoicing screen - this option is available in purchases but not sales.

    Add "Assign purchases" field to the bottom of sales /invoicing screen - this option is available in purchases but not sales.
    We assign expenses to customers while invoicing - If we have multiple trades it would make life easier if at the bottom of the sales invoice scsreen i could assign billable expenses here.

  3. Let us customize - Add/ Create fields to suit our businesses!! Myob does.....

    Each business is different and requires different information and fields. = it would be great to be able to customise or add fields.

    currently you can from the purchases to assign expense to customer - Give a Reverse for this option and put this to a sale screen and assign expenses - This would help eliminate double entry as we enter sales before purchases.

    Let us customize to suit our businesses!!

  4. Use F6 to copy down line above as Sage does. Would save so much time when entering invoices

    Can you please add a feature similar to Sage that copies the cell data above when pressing F6. Great for entering sales and purchase invoices rather than having to select from drop-down lists etc - would save so much time. ie, descriptions and our specific analysis cells.

  6. Batch payment API by InvoiceNumber instead of InvoiceID

    Thanks for the current batch payment API. it works with InvoiceID.

    Can you please update this API by allowing to use the InvoiceNumber instead of InvoiceID.

    The InvoiceNumber is much more user-friendly and actually used by accountants instead of the long ID, that needs an extra lookup.

    Can you please let us know when can you update it?

    For example:
    <Payments>
    <Payment>
    <Invoice>

    <InvoiceNumber>ORC1039</InvoiceNumber>
    </Invoice>
    <Reference>ggg</Reference>
    <Amount>10.00</Amount>
    </Payment>

  7. Migrate the Pay Run API from Payrolls

    With the Payrolls functionality being deprecated, the Pay Run https://developer.xero.com/documentation/payroll-api-us/pay-runs API will also be deprecated. By our understanding, this functionality, will still be available via the web UI ("Business > Pay Run"). Maintaining this subset of functionality after the overall Payroll deprecation would be useful for tools such as importers of 3rd Party payroll details.

  8. allow for overpayments against a non bank account

    I would like to be able to post over-payments to a control account instead of to a bank account as all other regular payments can be done to control accounts.

    If you attempt to post an overpayment via the banktransactions endpoint to a non bank account , you get "the specified bank account details does not match a known bank account" error.

    However, it is possible to post an overpayment to a non bank account via the UI. It would be great if this could be replicated via the API

  9. Extend Bank Transfer transactions API so that all fields available through Xero's UI are also supported through API

    Currently only 4 fields are supported through the API for Bank Transfers transactions – Amount, From Bank Account, To Bank Account & Date.

    It would be great if the remaining fields that are available via Xero's UI could also be supported in the API:
    API - namely:
    - From Account: Accounts Export Branch
    - To Account: Accounts Export Branch
    - Reference
    - 2 Amount fields (if From & To bank accounts are in different - currencies).

  11. Toggle Notifications via API

    Provide ability to turn off invoice reminder notifications for specific customers via the API.

  12. Include TotalDiscount on GET /invoices

    Please return the TotalDiscount when searching for multiple invoices.

    Xero, indeed, only returns the TotalDiscount when searching for ONE invoice, by its UUID or Invoice Number.

  13. Office 365 backup tool from EdbMails

    Why Office 365 backup? Well, to put it simply, taking initiatives necessary to secure important organizational information is important to the survival of any organization. Attackers often target the information that is most sensitive and would fetch them the highest ransom. If recent trends and researches on these trends are anything to go by then these attacks are getting more sophisticated with each passing day.

    The best way to protect the data most important to you is to be in complete control of it yourself. EdbMails Office 365 backup is a one stop solution that not only helps you create…

  15. make xero identify duplicate bills import from another App eg Receipt Bank

    it would be great for Xero to be able to identify duplication with synching data from other applications. Xero just can not rely on third party.
    it's going to be better selling point for Xero .

  17. Allow bulk retrieval of all outstanding balances by grouped contact

    Currently we can get the amount owing by querying individual contacts. However, given the API limits this becomes impossible to do on a daily basis for reporting once a reasonable number of customers is being queried.

    While it's possible it's better to do it in a web-hook-update kind of way when new information comes into Xero and is pushed externally, it would make more sense to me to have an endpoint that simply allows a contact summary to be obtained in a single API call which could have simple aggregates, like amount owing, shown.

  18. Add some extra data to web hook events

    Specifically for Invoices, some items like 'status' would help the code responding to the webhook to decide what to do - otherwise for every web hook event we need to access Xero to get the invoice - that's a lot of data when all I need is the status.

    There may be a case for some other fields to be included.
