integrate the orders in Xero with the purchase orders in RS and sync them
Xero is great for keeping on top of invoices due, but occasionally an invoice does not get created or uploaded by staff. If that were to happen while they were booking in the stock it would simplify.
This is not currently supported by Xero: https://xero.uservoice.com/forums/5528-xero-core-api/suggestions/4327134-enable-the-upcoming-purchase-order-module-to-link. We’ll revisit when they add this functionality.
Is there any update on this now that Xero have updated the API (according to the page that Robert linked to)
Hi Robert, after looking at the link you posted 2 years ago it seems to have been sorted at Xero. Is this now fully operational with RS and Xero?
Hi Troy, do you have an ETA - it seems the required Xero parts are now in place?
"Today we’ve released POST PurchaseOrders so you can now update purchase orders via the API: http://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/v2-release-notes/#2.191
These means you can now retrieve, create, update and delete (via an update) purchase orders using the API."
Anymore news on this?
Any chance we can revisit this? We are a MSP and require PO numbers for some of our high volume clients - this forces lots of manual, double entry cases for us. Would be great to enter it once (and ensure that we don't make a mistake when manually entering it on the Xero side). Please?

Nice to see your post here, Troy, I'm a bit anxious about the Xero integration and it's great to see you're on top of it.

They have added 2 of the 3 required parts - they said a couple mor weeks. That's when we will get started.. Thanks

This functionality has now been added it seems. Time to revisit? As a small shop it's hard to get admin done in between our 'real' work anyway, and entering purchases twice is a bit of a pain, especially when it means multiple orders of parts every day, some of which we can claim VAT back on, some we can't.

More xero sync improvements in general, core is there, but more work to be done
