Feature Request

Welcome to the GnuCash “New Feature Request” forum.

Please review/search the existing requests before posting a new request.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Allow csv import of historical quotes

    Ever since the online quotes support ended, update stock prices has become a tedious process. The user must go through the gui, find each stock and enter each price one at a time.

    Yahoo and others allow users to export stock information to a .csv file. Provide a mechanism to allow users to import stock prices from a .csv file. Perhaps something similar to how users can now import transaction data from .csv.

    • Svecchiamento dei dati

      Sarebbe utile una procedura per poter salvare gli anni conclusi e salvarli con backup, questo rendere più snello e veloce l'applicazione.

      • Enable searches to be saved.

        Saved Searches would enable recurring or complex searches to be re-executed without having to reconfigure them anew. Also, if savable, then specific criteria could be adjusted, like parameters, to perform like searches in various ways, again saving the user time.

            • Add memo field to 1-line view

              As landscape monitors have become much more common, it would be nice if GnuCash would use some of that extra space. It would be nice to have the option to include the Memo field in the 1-line view.

              • Make Account code searchable

                This has been useful in traditional accounting when there is a large number of accounts with complex structure and sometimes similar names. The fully qualified account name becomes too long for such big books

                - make account code unique
                - make account code one of the search parameters when looking for an account
                - entering the account code suggest the corresponding account when entering into the transaction

                • Not sound the error beep for every little thing

                  GNU Cash (running on Win10) keeps beeping on every little thing that is done for one's convenience. For example, if I hold down the backspace key to delete everything until the cursor hits the left edge, GNU Cash gives an error beep after the cursor hits the left edge. Or if the left or right arrow keys are kept depressed to reach the beginning or end of a line.

                  Error beeps get annoying for somethings that the user understands he/she is doing on purpose (this is done all the time in other programs).

                  Error beep should be reserved only for…

                  • Better sorting of scheduled transaction

                    Currently, scheduled trx editor sorts by next booking, even including non-active trx. I suggest that:
                    - Non-active trx are moved to the end of the list.
                    - Sorting order is saved (in the sense of e.g. alphabetcially descending)

                    The second item would be more important to me, but the first one is a nuissance too. Most of my inactive trx are quite old, so the "next transaction" is way in the past and therefore much earlier than any active trx, resulting in a long list of inactive trx, before I get to anything relevant.

                    Alternatively, I would suggest to allow…

                      • Multi-year comparison report

                        Is there a way to generate a multi-year report comparing multiple years in one report? Only way I've been able to do anything remotely close is to generate multiple reports and cycling between the tabs but it would be nice to be able to have all the information on one report separated by columns.

                          I really believe it would be better if the Recent Files list was unique and did not show the same file repeatedly.

                          • Allow pasting of passwords for Online Account Actions (HBCI)

                            In preor versions credentials could be pasted in the confirmation dialogs. This feature made it convenient for the use of password managing programs which store secure passwords. Having to enter a password manually discurages the user to use secure passwords for their online accounts.

                                • Import Quicken Data Files

                                  Although the documentation claims GnuCash can import QFX and / or QIF files, it cannot. I exported one Quicken account file (a brokerage firm account file containing stocks, cash "category" / "account" mutual funds and annuities. For the QFX import, a blank "Generic Import transaction matcher" window appears. Clicking the "OK" button does nothing. Clicking the close window gadget closes the window but nothing appears in the main window. No new account.

                                  For QIF, paging through numerous panes makes it look like the import is happening until the final "QIF Import" pane after the "Book" options panel selections are made.…

                                  • Add Classes To HTML Report

                                    In order to properly format printed reports for maximum layout and style flexibility, it would be ideal for Gnucash to:

                                    1) Generate html code with classes for all elements such as tables and divs. Also enclose all text data with the <span> tag.

                                    2) Allow users to set the path to a local 'custom.css' file, which would then be declared in the report as:

                                    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/home/user/gnucash/css/custom.css">

                                    3) Allow Gnucash to output the pdf file using the html report as input.

                                    This would go a long way for users that need more than the basic printouts produced by the…

                                    • Process Payment Facility - Fundamental Function Not Fully Developed

                                      The way to receive a payment and apply it to a customer's invoice is a basic function that has not been fully developed in Gnucash.

                                      Currently there is only one convoluted way to process a payment, and that is through the top menu only. One has to manually find the invoice and do several clicks. If you have multiple payments to receive, this is a rather sloth procedure.

                                      I'd like to request the following features that would improve a very fundamental function:

                                      1) In the 'Customers' window, place a button on the toolbar labeled 'Process Payment'. When a customer is…

                                      • A series of related ideas that will improve register readability and create a tagging mechanism

                                        1. Add a notes column (narrow by default) to the "main" register display line. Monitors are wider and adding a narrow column should not hamper those who prefer double-line mode to see notes. But allowing for a notes field effectively doubles the number of transaction per screen for those for whom seeing notes is important. I have modified my source code to accomplish this, the chnage is trivial to implement.

                                        2. Allow users to associate a foreground color with an account, that color whould be used for the acount name when displayed in a register. By allocating different colors to…

                                        • Allow batch export/printing of files associated with expenses/transactions over time range

                                          One feature I utilize extensively is the "associate file with transaction", so that I have proof of an expense which I deduct against my income. However, for the benefit of someone ever being audited, one should be able to export a year of expenses, and have the receipts automatically labeled and exported in a graphical manner too. I currently use a set of python scripts I wrote to:
                                          1) Determine the transactions that occur over my desired range (i.e. Jan. 1 2016 to Dec. 31 2016).
                                          2) Converts the file for each receipt to a PDF with image magick, and…
