Well I was really excited about this. Zapier promises the ability to add invoices in Xero whenever a line is added to a spreadsheet in google docs. Thought it was a fab workaround for a client who has income recorded in a centralised CRM system which doesn't integrate with Xero, but which produces reports in spreadsheet format. So I took out the trial and did a test, and yay, draft invoices appeared in Xero - magic!

BUT Zapier can't deal with dd/mm/yy date format! So your spreadsheet line dated 1 August becomes 8 January in Xero. And they can't offer a workaround......response was "'I'm afraid this is a problem we don't have a good solution to right now. We're working on ways to better format dates for you down the line, but for now we don't have a way to adjust the formatting of that date". Very sad - and I know we're not the only country in the world to use dd/mm/yy dates :-)
