Proposal - Create a custom endpoint only for &quot;Demo Accounts&quot; that will flush every bit of data. It&#39;s easier to create data in xero than to delete it. This will allow a reset before integration tests are run. We can then seed new data and run tests as expected. This will also allow projects with multiple developers to get their own test accounts setup and more easily match the rest of the team&#39;s.

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. The issue with this is that we are often exceeding the 60 second rate limit.

At the moment I can attach the support data but I can&#39;t email it out from Xero. I therefore have to download each invoice and then manually generate an email from my email system for each customer in order to attach the data and invoice in a single email... a laborious process at the start of each month! Life would be so much better if I could email attachments along with the invoice directly from Xero. This functionality is literally the only thing I miss from my old system... Xero is far superior but falls down in this key aspect. </p><p>MJ said:<br /><div class="typeset"><p>I would also value this functionality. For example I act as an agent for my customers and purchase items on their behalf (I am flat rate VAT registered so it makes sense to pass on costs as disbursements). </p> <p>I attach the original receipts against the invoice in Xero but it would be really helpful to see all the files attached when sending the invoice email and be able to select any to attach to the client&#39;s email.</p></div></p> MJ tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/21035045 2015-02-10T13:35:16-05:00 2015-02-10T13:35:16-05:00 Allow to submit inventory items names <p>Serge suggested:<br />Currently it&#39;s not possible to set an Item Name via Xero API.
