Batch Payments - Ability to 'split' when reconciling
Currently a client can upload a number of invoices and then create a batch payment for these invoices. When they make a payment for 1 of the invoices in the batch, you have to remove and redo the payment then match the separate invoice up, and then recreate the batch payment, excluding the amount which has now been paid. Would be easier if like with invoices, the batch payment could be split, saving the new to remove and then recreate the batch payment.

You can override the value in the payments column just before you continue to close out the batch. I use this function almost weekly as we often have to pay deposits only on full invoice values. I have attached a screenshot for reference :)
step 1. Select the bill/s you want to pay - Click make payment
step 2. Choose bank account to pay from
step 3. It is here in the review payments area on that line for that bill that you can click into it and override the value to pay and that will transpose to the batch. Here I have used your $25 example to show you the bill value is $778.53 but I am only going to pay $25, reducing the entire batch.

I receive some bills that we pay in instalments, eg invoice to us $100, we pay quarterly amounts of $25. I cannot see how to pay less that the full amount of the invoice in the batch payment.

not being able to reconcile a batch payment in Xero with several lines of a bank statement is UNACCEPTABLE. How is it possible we can match several transaction in Xero with one bank statement line but not the other way round. I makes NO SENSE AT ALL. This is definitely a NO GO for Xero. Others Like quickbooks or zoho books are able to do so

If I missed one payment, I need to redo the whole thing again. I hope we can add more payments in edit payment batch. Thanks!
