  1. Add the ability to filter by Updated Date on Files API

    This should be similar to the Modified After parameter for invoice requests. The UpdatedDateUTC field is available int the body of the file response and users would like the ability to filter on this.

    This is in lieu of webhooks notifying users of the file API of changes, which is a separate requested feature.

  2. Add the ability to download PayRoll files (either ABA files or transaction Files)

    It would be terrific to be able to download information about PayRoll payments, either in the ABA format or some other form.

    It appears all the information is inside Xero somewhere, it is just not exposed.

    For example, Company A has two employees Jen and Joe.

    Jen earns $12,000 in one payrun with $2,000 going to one bank account and $10,000 going to the second.

    Joe earns $7,000 in one payrun going to a single bank account.

    The total is $19,000.

    It would be good to be able to get this information out of Xero via an API

  4. Allow XML file types to be uploaded as attachments to invoices

    We have electronic invoicing in Costa Rica and a legal requirement involves creating a xml file and sending it to the customer. It would be great if we could upload this xml file as xml rather than a txt to the actual invoice as reference in case the user wants to send the invoice with the xml included to their customer.

  5. IncludeOnline for files API

    Currently there is no option to include the files to be sent in email to customer with object e.g. Invoice.

    Attachments API has an option includeonline to specify if we want to send the attachments in the email to the customer.

    Also there is an issue to include multiple files via the attachments API. I have added 2 files via the attachments API to invoice only one of them is showing as included online but other file need to be manually included via Xero GUI
