On other endpoints this issue is alleviated with the option of Paging, which when used returns all elements. At present we are forced to GET a list of list of all Credit Notes that have been modified since the last GET and then loop through each Credit Note making an API call for each individual Credit Note just so that we can get the LineItems.

When my customer pays me via Stripe, I listen for the Stripe Webhook and fire off a Receive-type BankTransaction to Xero. I mark it as reconciled when I create it because I run a cron job every hour that compares the balance of the Stripe bank account in Xero against the balance of Stripe in Stripe itself. Therefore, I&#39;m practicing continuous reconciliation rather than reconciling periodically. Unfortunately, sometimes when my customers pay me by ACH through Stripe, their payment bounces do to insufficient funds. In those cases, I&#39;d like to delete that BankTransactionID in Stripe to keep the balances reconciled.</p></div></p> Mark tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/34539630 2016-03-22T23:51:10-07:00 2016-03-22T23:51:10-07:00 Allow Custom URL Schemes <p>Chris suggested:<br />Currently the URL elements of various Xero resources appear to reject URLs that do not fit the http or https scheme. It would be very helpful if this barrier was removed. Both OS X and iOS are seeing an explosion of applications that implement custom URL schemes as a way to hook or callback. https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/iPhone/Conceptual/iPhoneOSProgrammingGuide/Inter-AppCommunication/Inter-AppCommunication.html My personal use case is a custom built warehouse management system. Our established application is hosted on premises, with client runtimes on OS X and iOS. We&#39;re integrating as a private app to Xero and will be pushing in contacts, payables and sales. All of these will retain supporting detail in our existing system. Allowing a URL to our custom scheme could give Xero interfaces 1-click navigation back into corresponding records in our system.</p> Chris tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/34386900 2016-03-17T23:30:53-07:00 2016-03-17T23:30:53-07:00 update archived contacts [updated] <p>Being able to update or unarchive contacts via the api</p><p>Donald Jansen said:<br /><div class="typeset"><p>This is needed</p></div></p> Donald Jansen tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/34381440 2016-03-17T21:07:21-07:00 2016-03-17T21:07:21-07:00 Budget summary report by budget [updated] <p>The current budget summary API report (http://blog.xero.com/developer/api/reports/#BudgetSummary) returns the overall budget summary report. Within Xero, you can create additional budgets which can be filtered by tracking category. This request is to: - Provide a Budgets API endpoint - Allow the budget summary report be filtered by budget</p><p>Lauren said:<br /><div class="typeset"><p>Having the ability to report and compare division actuals with division budgets in Spotlight would greatly improve the efficiency of month end and allow further insight into the siloed performance of the company. This is definitely a feature that should be enabled to make the Xero/ spotlight package more competitive. </p></div></p> Lauren tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/34353915 2016-03-17T06:16:03-07:00 2016-03-17T06:16:03-07:00 when contacts are merged show this status for the API [updated] <p>When merging contacts the system seems to treat them as a delete so we can’t differentiate them from a full delete. Ideally they should show a status of merged and the ID of the contact they were merged with that way we could perform the same action in the CRM of merging the contacts history rather than deleting them.</p><p>Donald Jansen said:<br /><div class="typeset"><p>Is there still nothing implemented for this, we currently have this situation where a contact has been merged but now our system fails to insert invoices because of this</p></div></p> Donald Jansen tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/34262979 2016-03-15T11:30:00-07:00 2016-03-15T11:30:00-07:00 Reconcile via the API [updated] <p>Be able to reconcile bank statement lines via the API.</p><p>Talal said:<br /><div class="typeset"><p>Must have ASAP.

The aim of this isn&#39;t to fool the community into thinking we&#39;re actively working on something, we&#39;re trying to tell the community that we&#39;re actively listening to your feedback and watching these pages. </p> <p>I apologise if it comes across as deceptive, but there&#39;s only so many ways you can say &quot;Great idea, we agree this would be awesome, but it&#39;s not on the roadmap for the next 3-6 months.&quot; I wish UserVoice had a status for that!</p> <p>So, sorry to sound like a broken record, but even though we see the value in this feature it&#39;s still not something we&#39;ll be delivering in the next 3-6m months. That said, we WILL be working on the next version of the API authentication layer which will finally make more complicated endpoints like this possible.</p> <p>Cheers, <br />Adam</p></div></p> Xero API tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/34225755 2016-03-14T13:07:57-07:00 2016-03-14T13:07:57-07:00 Include the IsReconciled field when returning multiple Payments from the GET Payments API [updated] <p>IsReconciled is included in the Payment API, but is not included when multiple payments are returned.

Be able to retrieve the online invoicing URL via the Xero API. Note that this URL is only generated when the invoice is emailed within the Xero application.

I therefore have to keep a separate Timesheet and invoice when I am back in the office. I find this incredibly irritating, because invoices done later always take a lot longer. My own accounting system based on spreadsheets did not have this restriction. Xero may in the long run save my bookkeeper some time, but for me, the person at the coal face, it is quite a lot less efficient because of this inability to do invoices on customer sites.</p> Anonymous tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/34091721 2016-03-09T21:45:36-08:00 2016-03-09T21:45:36-08:00 Add eWise to your list of financial aggregators for Asia market <p>Anonymous suggested:<br />Add eWise to your list of financial aggregators for Asia market. Yodlee does not work for the Sg market where OTP is required. However, eWise is able to login and pull the transaction from SG banks. I have seen it myself. You guys should look into their financial aggregating services if you would like to improve on bank feeds in Singapore. </p> Anonymous
