    • Support for Inventory Adjustments

      Add support for the inventory adjustments in the API.

      Currently you can effectively perform inventory adjustments via the API using invoices. See the tracked inventory guide for more info: http://developer.xero.com/documentation/api-guides/tracked-inventory-in-xero/

      This request is to expose the specific inventory functionality in Xero via the API.

      • Add a Quantity column in the inventory watch list on the Dashboard

        Currently on the Dashboard you cannot see the quantity on hand. It would be easier for tracked items on the Dashboard to have a quantity column, so that it's easier for smaller firms to keep track and be able to place orders efficiently.

        • new Bin Location field for Tracked Items will assist Warehousing and Inventory Management

          it would be useful to have a field which can be used to specify the warehouse location of the item needed for pick and packing

          • Allow case insensitive search on Item codes

            Apparently there is an unique index on Item codes which is case insensitive, i.e. you can not create a different item with the same code with a different case. However the API doesn't allow case-insensitive search on item codes, which is really awkward. This is a big problem when you get an error when inserting a new item because of an earlier item with the same code but different case. It's very hard to find the original item in this case.

            • Integrate Inventory with Shopify

              An awesome feauture would be to automatically update stock on hand in Xero AND Shopify when receiving Purchase Orders. Without this it's not feasible to manage inventory in Xero for a Shopify store.

              • Add more precision for Items endpoint

                When getting an item from the /Items endpoint, even with unitdp set to 4, the TotalCostPool only provides 2 decimals of precision. Unfortunately I have plenty of items in my tracked inventory that have 4 decimal places of precision. This prevents me from getting the accurate average cost data.

                  • include BARCODE field in Item

                    hi guys,

                    if a BARCODE field was present in the item it would enable using a barcode scanner when pick and packing the Xero order/invocie.

                    Also, most items / products these days have a unique standard barcode and this would enable greater integration between Xero and EDI (Electronic Integration between suppliers )
