Feature Request

Welcome to the GnuCash “New Feature Request” forum.

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

  1. Create check writing feature similar to QucikBooks

    GnuCash supports generating checks via the Accounts Payable process. I'd like to see a more simple method to write checks similar to how QuickBooks works. Instead of entering a bill/invoice into accounts payable, simply write a check to the vendor. Multiple checks could be written and then printed as a batch. Many, if not most, cash businesses don't use an accounts payable process. Rather they simply hold the bills/invoices and then generate checks as needed.

    I would be willing to contribute funds to implement this feature.

  2. Batch (bulk) editing of transactions

    In addition to categorizing multiple transactions at once, additionally being edit any field in multiple transactions. Could be a "find/replace" feature added to the "find".

  4. In register displays differentiate where past/current transactions and future transactions meet

    Currently all transactions in a register alternate between the same colors making is difficult to find where the break between past/current date and future date transactions meet. It would be helpful if a visual clue like a line with an contrasting color could be placed between the 2 record sets.

  5. Have notes appear on the same line as the transaction

    This is not my idea but azalea4va 's.
    I just want to place it for a vote.

    Currently there is the option to have Transaction Notes appear as a second line on the transaction.
    azalea4va seems to have created already the code to place the notes on the transaction line next to the description.
    This is an option that I would welcome in GNUCASH.
    And it would not mean that the existing placement of the Notes should go away for the people that wish it.

    Maybe azalea4va could provide an option that the notes can be placed
    on a new…

  7. Allow multiple currencies/securities in QIF imports

    It would be great if QIF imports could handle multiple currencies/securities in different split transactions.

    My actual use case is to create a stock transaction that contains some split transactions due to tax withholding, regulatory fee, commissions.

    Currently QIF investment transactions do not support split categories, so I could not use QIF investment transactions to represent the desired transaction.

    Currently the normal QIF bank/split transactions do not support different currencies/securities in different splits so I could not use that either.

    OFX format does not support split transactions either.

    It seems only the CSV import supports my use case now. However,…

  9. Hotkey Toggle for Reconcile Field Value

    When entering values on a ledger transaction entry, there's no way to toggle the value of the R (reconcile) field without using the mouse. I'm recommending that <ctrl+r> be a hotkey combo that toggles this value for open transactions during the data entry process.

  10. Split toggle button (expand/collapse all transactions)

    I use the "Transaction Journal" style (Prefs > Register Defaults > Default Style) to constantly compare splits between months.

    Although this mode is the most useful to me, as the transactions start increasing, it becomes tedious to find a specific transaction and overwhelming to look at all the available information when you're scrolling through.

    It would be extremely useful to have a toolbar button that toggles between the existing "Basic Ledger" and "Transaction Journal" modes, which would act as a "Collapse All" / "Expand All" option for all available transactions.

  11. A Security Ageing Report for determining Short/Long Term Capital Gains

    An Ageing report for securities to determine Capital Gains - both Long / Short term.
    Some Securities may be classified as 365 days for LTCG, others 3/5 years. Settings for securities may be set in the security editor itself when creating the security. eg Shares have 1 year as LTCG, Mutual Funds have 3 years as LTCG, Bonds have varying terms, etc

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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
