We find the current setup of the transaction detail which can be exported into Excel - less a few columns we can use to update our solution today -- what is missing is the ability to do that online rather than users having to manually run and then reload into our solution. One option to consider when this is made available is the abilty to have the data pre accumulated for same tracking categories. Any idea of timing for this?</p></div></p> Gill Goddard tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/41174518 2016-10-11T18:21:58-07:00 2016-10-11T18:21:58-07:00 Save Bank Statements in xero <p>Sandra Collins suggested:<br />It would be great if there were somewhere within each of the Bank Accounts where we could upload/scan and store Bank Statements within xero as auditors need to see these regardless of whether we say that the account is reconciled. </p> Sandra Collins tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/41133754 2016-10-10T11:49:32-07:00 2016-10-10T11:49:32-07:00 Allow reverting allocations for Credit Notes and Overpayments via API [updated] <p>This functionality is missing from API and available only via front end.

The users of our app use prepayments a lot and it is often that a prepayment allocation is removed from one invoice and moved to another.

Having just started trying to use the API, I find I cannot do this most basic of things, and have to do it manually by file transfer.</p> <p>In general I've found the API to be terribly lacking in all sorts of areas. If you used the API to implement your own UI, you wouldn't get into this mess, you'd implement things as a matter of course. Clearly you *have* an API of sorts, but its just not the secured, public one.</p></div></p> David Earl tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/41037619 2016-10-06T17:17:37-07:00 2016-10-06T17:17:37-07:00 Notify URL When Stuff Changes in Xero - Webhooks [updated] <p>I&#39;m requesting &quot;web hooks&quot; for the Xero API. 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.
