  1. API to retrieve the invoice link exposed to a customer

    It would be a great idea to provide an API to access the invoice link sent to the customer. If the link was available via API, 3rd party apps like CRM's can directly send a link to the invoice without needing the user to log into Quickbooks.
    PS: I am referring to the link that's available by clicking on "Print or Preview" under an invoice. The same link is used in the email that a user sends to a customer.

    • Add methods to read Inventory Adjustments created in QBO UI

      When the user adjusts QOH for the items in QBO, there is no way to get information about this transaction via API. For Inventory management applications it is a critical feature to maintain the correct QOH levels.

      • Mechanism to delete or reset a sandbox

        There NEEDS to be a way to delete a sandbox, or reset all the data to be up to date using a more current date range. The inability to do so SIGNIFICANTLY hinders our ability to develop against the QBO APIs.

        • Expose a QBO Health API using that developers can handle service outages

          In a case of any service outage,all sync jobs(configured in an app) fail. It is not always possible to monitor the status page. A QBO health API would help developers to handle service outages programmatically.

          • Support associating PurchaseOrders and Bills

            Support writing to LinkedTxn when updating a PurchaseOrder or Bill, so it's possible to associate them with each other through the API as done through the UI.

            • Improve and expand Data Query supported operators

              The current list of supported operators is extremely limited. To acheive a negative filter, we have to take a hacky approach of instead listing all positive matches using "in ('item1','item2','item3'...)", or where that is unfeasible (e.g. the full list of matching terms is unknown), we have to retrieve all values and then filter the result set manually, which results in really inefficient and clunky code, as well as network overheads since potentially large amounts of unwanted data is being transferred only to be immediately filtered/discarded.

              Please expand the list of supported operators to allow for the following:

              != or <> …

              • Full unicode support for query

                Queries currently seems to be able to take 2 unicode characters and not more.

                Example:

                Item name: 波士頓嫩豬肩肉排 Pulled Pork

                Query: SELECT * FROM Item WHERE Name LIKE '%pork'
                Response: item found

                Query: SELECT * FROM Item WHERE Name LIKE '波士%'
                Response: item found

                Query: SELECT * FROM Item WHERE Name LIKE '波士頓%'
                Error: QueryParserError: Invalid content. Lexical error at line 1, column 39. Encountered: \"\\u9813\" (38931), after : \"\\'\\u6ce2\\u58eb\"

                • Ability to Link the Bill with Purchase Order via API

                  We can create bill and Purchase order via the API but we cannot create the link between the Bill and the Purchase Order through the API as we create the bill from the Purchase order from the UI a link is created between them.

                    • Support OAuth2 for desktop applications

                      OAuth2 is meant to accommodate various workflows, and one of the ones that we need is the ability for our desktop application to connect with our customers' QuickBooks Online accounts. Adding support for that without requiring a publicly-visible Redirect URI would ease deployments tremendously. The IETF has a draft best practice here:
                      https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-oauth-native-apps-12
                      and Google outlines their approach here:
                      https://developers.google.com/identity/protocols/OAuth2InstalledApp

                      Thank you!

                      • Merge Entity

                        There is a real need for a “Merge” feature (where we can request that Customer “John, Smith” merges into “Johnny, Smith” and moves all transactions over to them. We do this in QB Desktop, just can’t do it on QBO.

                        Not only can we not initiate the request, we can’t really hear that the request has happened manually in the interface. We can detect that an entity was deleted, but we don't know where they were moved to.

                        It creates a real problem as a CRM, as you can imagine as it users get garbage data.

                        • Add ability to send PO to vendor via API

                          Now it's impossible to send PO to the vendor via API. I see that such requests were raised two years ago and still not implemented. At least add the ability to gather PDF document of the PO via API so we could send it ourselves.

                          • Deep Link Transactions

                            Deep linking to transactions (Invoices, Journal Entries, Payments, Deposits, Transfers, etc.) would be extremely useful. It seems as though you're already almost there.

                            You have the /login?deeplinkcompanyid={Company ID} endpoint for directing users to the appropriate company.

                            You have the /app/{Transaction Type}?txnId={Transaction ID} endpoint for pulling up the transaction.

                            If your web app could take the deep linked realm ID, a transaction type, and transaction ID, prompt the user for login to the appropriate realm if necessary, and redirect them to the transaction upon login, then we'd have it done! Makes the interface a lot nicer for clients within the 3rd…

                                Add ability to query payments for an invoiceId. This was available in the previous API but for some reason it has been deprecated. This would be helpful to reconcile payments in my application with those in QBO.

                                      • When creating BillPayments, allow Deposits to be a linked transaction

                                        Using the QBO interface, when making a payment on a bill (creating a bill payment), you are able to link vendor credits and deposits via the linked transaction process. Unfortunately, when creating a BillPayment object via the API, you can not link a Deposit to the BillPayment. This feature would improve the API and make it more consistent with what the user expects from the QBO UI.

                                        • Retrieve LinkedTxn data via QBO V3 API

                                          When querying the QBO API V3, for an invoice, incomplete data is returned.

                                          If an additional pre-existing charge is added to the invoice using the QBO web interface, future queries of that invoice via the API will show those charges as a LinkedTxn.

                                          <LinkedTxn>
                                          <TxnId>40096</TxnId>
                                          <TxnType>StatementCharge</TxnType>
                                          </LinkedTxn>

                                          This shows nothing about the charge (specifically description and amount).

                                          The total of the invoice reflects the all charges, and returns some line charges, but the Linked transactions details are not provided.

                                          Please enable querying of ReimbCharge, ChargeCredit, or StatementCharge via the QBO V3 API.

                                          If only one can be done, my focus…
