    - Update September 2016 -

    You can retrieve repeating invoices via the API but we have no current plans to add create or update functionality.

    We know this would be a useful feature but the team is currently focused on other big features like webhooks.

    We’ll re-evaluate the status of this in the new year.

        Hi Xero Team,

        I understand that you've started this feature and I'm sure you guys are working as hard as you can to get it to us, but do you have any idea when this feature might become available? It would help us a great with planning.

        Thanks,
        Oliver

        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'

        +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.
