In our upcoming December 2010 API release we’ll be introducing some sought after enhancements.
Here’s what’s new
A new Journals endpoint with the ability to GET Journals
This data is essentially the same as the data you can retrieve manually in Xero from the “Adviser > Export GL Transactions” menu.
Improvements to the Invoices endpoint
To complement some great invoice customisation in the Xero app, developers will be able to make use of any invoice branding themes a Xero customer has created. Specifically you will be able to:
- Retrieve a list of branding themes an organisation is using
- Apply a branding theme to draft invoices and draft credit notes
We’ve had a lot of requests to be able to link back to source documents from invoices in Xero, so taking a generic approach we’ve made it possible for you to set up a URL link when you enter invoices via our API. Invoices created using this functionality will then show a “view invoice in [app name]” link, similar to the functionality we already offer customers that use FreshBooks with Xero.
We’re planning to release these enhancements around mid December. Look out for the release notifications within the app and Help Centre. Full details of all these improvements will also be available in our release notes.
What’s coming up next?
Entering draft “ManualJournals”
This is almost ready, so expect to see this early in the new year.
Entering approved invoices
On the horizon
In Q1 2011 we’ll be releasing the first of our reporting endpoints. Cashflow and other speciaist reporting or analysis apps will be able to easily access a growing range of data from Xero. Our team is really excited at the possibilities this will open up to developers. But as always let us know on our Uservoice forum what specific features you need.
