  1. Document restrictions in the API

    Where a restriction is imposed by the API (such as the characters acceptable as an Item Code) ... this should be documented somewhere ... ANYWHERE!

    • prepayment

      Update documentation for Prepayment allocations. In current documentation you get the feeling that prepayment can have allocation only on Invoice, but if you send CreditNote or another Prepayment it works correctly.

      It would be awesome to write this down in documentation and next time name the element TransactionID, or somehow so you don't think only Invoice is supported.

        • Demo g

          One contact in the Demo database with all elements and element nodes populated would be helpful. I'm starting to code against the Xero API and my first task is to read the GET responses and encapsulate each entity. If there was one Contact in the Demo database that I could validate my parser code against, this would save a lot of time.

          And the same for the other API objects like Employee, Tracking Categories etc.

          • PO's enable file attachment

            When we send a PO to a supplier we also need to send supplier specific order forms for our goods; it would be great if we could see this function in Xero
