  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.

      • Improve / Finish the API

        It could be a great idea to, not improve the API, but just finish it. What I mean by that is to be able to do everything we can do on the QBO Plateform, but from the API. There is some limitation today on the possible action you can do with the API. I would take as exemple the Purchase Order, that you can't send, you can't even fill the mail input. You can't also fill the "Your message to vendor" part. Same with customer or vendor object, where you can't fill the notes part. The item you can't set…

          • 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.

                Allow 3rd party applications set VAT number and Registration number for customers using the API. This is essential when you want to manage all customer information in a CRM and just have the data synced to QuickBooks.

                • 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 <> …

                  • Place of Supply field in the Invoices and Sales Receipt Object

                    There's no way we can set the place of supply (GST) in India while creating a new Sales Receipt or Invoice using QBO V3 API right now. Searched the Invoice and Sales Receipt object but found none. Could you please introduce an object that can be used for this purpose.

                    • 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'

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

                        • API Created Invoices Shouldn't Ignore Default Payment Options

                          When invoices are created via API they appear to ignore the default payment options for whether customers should be allowed to pay online with a credit card. This needs to be adjusted as it currently creates a huge amount of overhead:

                          1. Invoice creation via API needs to obey the settings of the QBO account. If a QBO account is configured to Accept Credit Cards by default (online payments), an API created invoice should reflect the same settings.

                          2. Developers should have the ability to optionally specify payment methods via API.

                          The problem as it stands is when using 3rd…

                          • 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.

                                  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.

                                    • Provide a way to get Payments using the LinkedTxn

                                      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.
