    Hi everyone,

    The functionality to send sales invoices via email is now open to all apps.

    Check out the docs here: https://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/invoices#email

    There’s more functionality we could add around emailing but I’m going to close this request. Please feel free to create new specific requests for any additional email functionality you’d like to see going forward.

    Cheers,
    Adam

        This is a good thing to see happen but i'm not sure if it work our the best given at the moment many email sent from Xero addresses with quotes, purchase orders, and invoices get blocked by the end users spam filters, and often times even blocked by ISP level spam filters which customers don't have the ability to modify. It is a great idea being able to send emails through the API so save needing to create your own email sending code within the bespoke application just to send something that can be emailed through Xero, but I think a high priority to ensure this feature is worthwhile should be to do something about Xero's mails being flagged as spam without needing vendors and customers to whitelist the relevant email addresses as in many instances they either don't know how to do it or choose not to instead saying that it is the businesses responsibility to ensure that addresses we use are not assessed as being spam related.

        + 1 for this. We are integrating Braintree to Xero via Zapier, and currently we cannot send invoice via email or download it, making the integration useless.

        Wait... You have been working on this crucial basic feature for 6 years - without any results. You gotta be kidding...

        Please add functionality to view invoice status i.e. whether customer has viewed it or not.
