Which is expected. However when the &quot;If-Modified-Since&quot; filter is used on the GET Contacts endpoint where the &quot;If-Modified-Since&quot; date is after the contact is created but before the conatct as made into a supplier (i.e. after the isCustomer or isSuppler flag flips from false to true in the body of the Contact response) then the contact is not returned in the response.

Here&#39;s how they work: Customer provides a URL (http://myserver.com/xero/changed) to Xero, and when something is changed, Xero notifies that URL, perhaps indicating which records have changed. The Xero API provides methods that you can query and compare with previous results to see what has changed. However, this is not performant for large data sets, and detecting changes involves a lot of code. The competition has it - web hooks are supported by QuickBooks. Let&#39;s get them in Xero - it&#39;s a superior product in every other way. </p><p>Jesse Archer said:<br /><div class="typeset"><p>Any news on this?

Our current app has rudimentary accounting in it but we are seeking to set up a sync with a dedicated cloud-app for all the accounting. Purchase Orders are crucial to this niche market and if we could sync them with Xero via api it would make a huge difference.

Until the quote api is released, 3rd party integration from our CRM to Xero is useless and we will have to continue double keying quotes. The inclusion of quotes in your api would be amazing for us, and I&#39;m sure others.</p></div></p> Lyndon tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/35294523 2016-04-14T09:49:18-04:00 2016-04-14T09:49:18-04:00 History &amp; Notes [updated] <p>Expose invoice History &amp; Notes through the API</p><p>Anonymous said:<br /><div class="typeset"><p>Any updates?</p></div></p> Anonymous tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/35291631 2016-04-14T07:09:00-04:00 2016-04-14T07:09:00-04:00 Be able to email approved invoices via the API [updated] <p>Andrew Moorcroft said:<br /><div class="typeset"><p>Any updates?</p></div></p> Andrew Moorcroft tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/35250594 2016-04-13T00:22:00-04:00 2016-04-13T00:22:00-04:00 Populate reference field on payable invoices [updated] <p>Would like the ability to set the reference field on payable invoices.
