Official API Development Trello board

Hi everyone

We’re really pleased to see a continued growth in API usage as well as the
number of discussions taking place in this group. We read all the threads
and we take note of all the issues you raise and the suggestions for
improvements you’d like to see.

In order to give you better visibility of what we’re working on and to
better gauge what the most in-demand features are, we have created a public
Trello board:

We’d welcome your feedback on this board (the first card
https://trello.com/c/9BRFJbnG/1-what-can-you-expect-from-this-board is a
guide that explains the reasoning behind it and how to use it) and we look
forward to hearing your comments and seeing your votes!

Cheers,

Olly

Big +1 for Nic’s request.

Also, can you provide full expense details in the /expenses response? At
the moment, the feed seems to be missing attributes such as rebilling
fields (rebill_type, rebill_factor).

Thanks

  • Cashflow (the monthly data - so an array of 6 items, one for each
    month, of in and out)
  • Invoice timetime, with links back to the invoices (I think the
    timeline is there already, but no links, just general info)
  • Bank info over time (monthly or fortnightly balance would be good,
    going back 3-6 months. I have to pull down 3 months of transactions to
    get this at the moment)
  • Profit and Loss (it’s all in the box)
    eg:
    Income Expenses Operating Profit
    Less
    Corp. Tax Dividends Adjustments

Retained Profit Carried Forward/Distributable

Brought forward

(Same stuff I’ve been asking for for a few years, along with quite a
few other people)

BTW, this is pretty much the #1 requested thing in mobileAgent:
summary info. And not something I can provide (esp P&L, as a lot of
the values are not available in the ledger, or I can’t work them out)

I’d also add a vote for the docs to be up to date. For every entity
(eg invoice), have every field. For every field, have every possible
value (ok, not for numbers, but you get the idea)

For example, Invoices (https://dev.freeagent.com/docs/invoices)

the GET lists no fields what so ever, just a basic json document which
has around 10% of the actual fields.

within invoice is a field called Status. What are it’s possible
values? I had to make invoices, and keep changing its state, to work
them out (and even then missed a LOT, things like over and under paid,
cancelled, etc). Chances are I’ve still missed quite a few states.

Repeat for all the data types.

Maintain the current stability of the api. You’ve done an awesome job
so far of not breaking ANYTHING. Keep it up :slight_smile:

We’ll look at doing that Nic. It would help if you could be more specific
for things other than P&L.

Also, I’ve just enabled voting which was disabled. Sorry about that.
