Feature request: Export ContactNumber in CSV export of Contacts

Started by Francois Botha -   in Getting Started

I'm busy cleaning up a contact mess. I want to export al my contacts to CSV first to have a record of the current state of my contacts. However, the very important ContactNumber (aka Contact Code) field is not included in the exported CSV file. Please add the field to the CSV exports.

I now run the risk of misidentifying some contacts when I start to sort out duplicates and renaming them.

From https://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/contacts :
This field is read only in the Xero UI, used to identify contacts in external systems. It is displayed as Contact Code in the Contacts UI in Xero.
