    We’re getting some more clarity on our roadmap for the first part of 2016 and unfortunately that’s unlikely to include support for creating/updating repeating invoices.

    I realise it’s extremely frustrating for those of you keenly waiting for this feature, but unfortunately there are still a few other features ahead of it in priority.

        Shame very useful feature there, even could include a repeating invoice -> invoice link.

        Hope for next year perhaps.

        You need to prioritize this API function, this is very helpful. Or at least, supply a widget for Repeating Invoices.

        API is completely useless to us without this. Seems like such a simple thing to program. I would be willing to pay extra to get this made a priority. I just don't understand how the regular invoice part could be programmed but not the repeating invoice part. Your system didn't seem to have a problem creating my repeating bill...... what would happening if my bill pay system could not pay a repeating invoice.....

        Embarassing. Just write the code. Market cap $2.5bn, 1,000 employees, can't even write some simple code to add a simple feature. Really really embarassing

        Any news/update on this? Most of our invoices are recurring... and September 18, 2011 was long time ago...

        'Beautiful accounting software' more like 'chit accounting software that can't even phukin create and manage repeating invoices'

      • Andrew McCallumAndrew McCallum commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        +1, at least 80% of our billing is recurring and this will make it possible to manage so make Xero something we can move to

        Having this implemented (with place holder text element) would make adoption far far easier for us. +3.

        +1, this is the single obstacle to adoption for us, and really makes the whole thing useless without it.

        Please add this feature. We need it. We will not pay for this software until it's inside.

        Any update as to when the repeating invoice will be able to be created via the API. It has been almost 3 months since your last update and I am currently reviewing which accounting software to choose and this is a significant deciding factor for our business. Even if just a ballpark, such as couple months or a year, etc. Thanks.
