  2. Reconcile window: Add number of transactions for "Funds Out" (debit) and "Funds In" (credits).

    This minor modification will help in tracking down discrepancies by comparing these numbers to the ones on the bank or credit card statements.

  3. Auditing report to show what changes were made when (and, later, by whom)

    An auditing report shows recent changes sorted by date. This would be very helpful when trying to sort out issues caused by simple data entry error.

  4. Improve the documentation on setting up hotkeys (or make it more intuitive)

    Currently I can (apparently) set up hotkeys. The process is not intuitive at all and requires significant background knowledge.

    SUGGEST: Add examples which show names of common keys

    SUGGEST: Make the whole process more intuitive by allowing hotkeys to be configured in the preferences

  5. use ctrl-pgup and ctrl-pgdn for next/prev tab rather than requiring the ctrl-alt

    It's more standard and easier/faster to not require the alt key in addition to the ctrl key

  6. Allow scrolling of tabs

    Currently if I click on the horizontal arrows on the tab row it selects the next/previous tab. That means if I am on one end and want to go to the other end I have to cycle through all of them.

    Better to have one or more of these options:
    * Allow tab row to be extended to multiple rows so that multiple rows of tabs can be seen at one time (you often see this on preference dialogs)
    * Resize the tabs if the number of tabs doesn't fit so that it does fit, even if I can't see…

  7. Set the default frequency of scheduled transactions to monthly

    99% of my scheduled transactions are on a monthly basis and almost never do I use a daily scheduled transaction.

    It makes sense (if others' usage is similar to mine) to either set the default frequency for these scheduled transactions to "Monthly" or (if my usage is not similar) to either (a) have a preference to set or (b) keep track of whatever was used last and make that the default for the next one.

  8. Make the need for ALPHAVANTAGE_API_KEY env var (or preference) clear while setting up

    I was setting up multi-currency and just quickly followed the instructions that came up. It failed. Turned out I needed an Alpha Vantage API Key in order for it to work. I didn't find this out until I went deep into the trouble-shooting docs even though this is apparently a basic requirement.

    If this is a requirement, when someone is setting up multi-currency include that as a step and ask them to enter it at that time.

    WHERE I LOOKED IN DOCS: Section 9.6.3 where it says this:

    Run Install Online Price Retrieval which can be found in the GnuCash…

  9. When a number is entered in both columns (credit/debit) keep most recently entered number rather than deleting both

    I was setting up my personal finance and got mixed up with column names and put all my credit card transactions in "Payments" instead of "Charges". After 20-25 transactions I realized my mistake and quickly went down the list typing in the number into the "Charges" column from the payments. I assumed it would delete the number in the "Payments" column. Instead it deleted BOTH numbers and saved the resulting transactions, thus making it so I had to go back to my source document (which, since I summarize and sub-total some transactions, was a pain in the neck).

    If I…

  10. CNY currency change to CNH

    Currently GnuCash uses CNY as Chinese Yuan currency name, is it possible to change it to CNH, insce CNY is Chinese Yuan used in Mainland China, which is not available to exchange for other currencies, and CNH is the offshore version of the same currency (therefore can be exchanged for other currencies). Detail please see here https://www.dailyfx.com/forex/fundamental/article/special_report/2018/09/12/cnh-vs-cny-differences-between-the-two-yuan-.html

  12. How To: Remove Entries from Recent File History List

    After searching forever and finding no answers, but seeing other people also ask ... the question remains, how to remove the history of opened accounts, say for example you have several test accounts in various locations or named the same ... example: business.gncash, but 3 versions... obviously it's very helpful to remove what is not currently used or named unique.

    Most people use Windows right ?

    Open regedit (type regedit in the run box, press ok)
    Open HKEYCURRENTUSER
    Expand Software then GSettings then org then gnucash
    Click on the History folder to see a list of names and…

  13. A/Payable Shows red amounts on some transactions

    Recently payable account shows a red minus value after a payment? Searched for ever to find why all other transactions are normal.
    By total accident discovered that if auto number invoice is used, then its normal.
    Adding an invoice number makes a red entry.
    The solution, make sure the payables account has the same invoice number for recording and paying, by default it does not add the invoice number on one entry, add it manually and balances show normal then.
    Perhaps add a tip somewhere on this in help file or cause gnucash to copy custom invoice numbers on debits…

  14. Sync desktop to the app

    How to sync the desktop to the app: import structure and also the transactions.
    First go to desktop and do save as and save as an xml file ex: Business.xml
    Copy that file to the phone, for samsung android, my file explorer works very good.
    Now go to the phone app and do settings/accounts/import xml file.
    Nothing will happen.
    Next go to the app and select Open and browse to the place the xml file was saved, select it and open. It will then say importing xml.
    All structure and also all transactions will appear.
    And that is how you…

  16. Add buttons to navigate between online price retrieval and security editor

    Adding securitites and setting up online price retrieval can involve a lot of clicking to switch between the retrieval tool and the security editor. Please add a button "Retrieve prices now" to the window allowing to edit/create securities. And add a button in the retrieval tool "Edit Security" for existing ones when selecting the security.

  17. Ignore dummy split in memorized transaction for proper calculation of exchange rate and Trading Accounts

    At the moment, memorized split transaction works perfectly if it involves a pair of regular accounts (and a pair of trading accounts).

    However, in the case of stock dividend entry, another dummy split will be needed to indicate the relevant stock for proper reporting in Advanced Portfolio. For example:

    Asset\Citibank\USD 100.00
    Trading\Currency\EUR 92.00
    Asset\Stock\ABC
    Income\Dividend 92.00
    Trading\Currency\USD 100.00

    Due to this extra split, the exchange rate windows won't popup to calculate the equivalent amount for the other account as well as the trading accounts.

    It would be nice if some extra logic could be added in processing the memorized transaction…
