    Hi community, to keep you updated of progress in this space. Our product team recently released an update so you can view more detail in history such as where an issue or due date has changed or total amounts of the invoice have changed and who these were made by. We have more improvements coming for history and notes in new invoicing and will share more as it's made available, here.

    Wow, is this update a joke? We are not asking for new functionality here. It is a cosmetic change. The webpage currently retrieves the history using an API call that returns the history data that includes both the date and the timestamp. The webpage then throws away the timestamp data and only displays the date! All we want is the webpage to display the date AND the timestamp. This requires a tiny change to the webpage and is super easy to do. WHY aren't you listening?

    This is a cosmetic change, the timestamp data is already present, your interface is simply hiding it. Making the interface display it is a tiny, tiny change that would require almost no effort or testing to achieve. Why is this incredibly easy-to-implement request being ignored by Xero!

    This is also our biggest issue with the new version. The super crazy thing is the data is sent from your server (you can see it if you know how to use DevTools in your browser) it's just the styling on your page that drops the time info and only displays the date. I.e. this is a super, super easy change to make that would take a dev a few minutes to do and test. Really no excuse not to knock this off the list quickly.
    For those of you who are a little brave then the way to use DevTools to see the timestamp is pretty easy. Most web browsers work in a very similar way but these instructions are for Chrome. Open the invoice in your browser, press F12 or open DevTools from the menu, select the Network tab in DevTools, now click on the show history and notes button and you should see an entry in Devtools called history, click on this entry and in the details that open choose the Preview tab. This will show the raw data that the web page is using in the history section. If you expand each line of data by clicking the triangle you can see the Date field includes the full date and time down to the second. Note: to see the history entry in Devtools you must open DevTools before clicking the show history button, if you don't you will need to start again as the history data gets cached so no amount of show and hide will work. Also if you open DevTools too soon then your list of entries in Network can get long.

    History no longer displays a timestamp just a date, so you have no idea how far apart actions occurred. It can be incredibly frustrating when troubleshooting, especially when the timestamp data is available but is being concealed. Makes Xero sense!
