What should have happened is that the Invoice URL simply be provided along with the rest of the Invoice data through the paging API. Instead, it is provided on a per-invoice basis, requiring the use of an API call for every URL retrieved. Given the shockingly small limit to API calls, this makes this non-workable. Your competition, QuickBooks Online, allows 500 calls per MINUTE, compared to Xero&#39;s 1000 per DAY. If you had their API limits your implementation of the Invoice URL would be annoying but workable. However, with your current API limit there is no way to avoid the fact that the current implementation of the Invoice URL via the API is badly, badly crippled. On behalf of myself and everyone who builds Add-ons on the Xero Platform, improving your eco-system, I would ask you reconsider your implementation of this, or increase the limits on your API 100-fold to a more reasonable 100,000 per day.</p> Stony Grunow tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/37845144 2016-06-22T15:44:45+08:00 2016-06-22T15:44:45+08:00 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.

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>Isaac said:<br /><div class="typeset"><p>Come on guys!
