Feature Request

Welcome to the GnuCash “New Feature Request” forum.

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

  1. make it easy to switch from Quickbooks.

    Because Quickbooks is pushing all of their customers to moving toward the cloud based system that does not work well at all, I already know many businesses and individuals who want to switch. The biggest obstacle for them doing it is the impossible task of getting any historical data and transactions imported from their existing books into GnuCash...

  2. Automatically prorate the balance of a split

    I see to situations to use this:

    1) Creating a transaction with splits and a balance (not splited yet)

    2) Change the total balance of a splitted transction

    In theses case the program should offer a option to prorate the balance evenly or proportionally between the splits already existing

    Thank you

  3. Save report configurations, the style sheets, and general options relating to that db in the db. (Acc period, business name)

    Some users want to have multiple gnucash databases and that they be portable. This means that certain options should be saved in or with the .gnucash file.
    eg.
    1. Accounting period.
    2. Currency
    3. Saved report configs
    4. Style sheets.

    I would like to completely separate my gnucash databases
    But at present gnucash is almost unusable because of the disparity in what is saved to where. It doesnt allow for multiple gnucash files for different organisations.

    Especially if I am setting it up to be used by someone else eventually.

    I set up a report for my club ( images…

  4. Cash Flow Statement based on GAAP (USA) and/or IFRS (international) standards

    I was trying to find if someone has requested Cash Flow Statement based on GAAP (USA) and/or IFRS (international) standards to be implemented in GnuCash, but only found such requests from the GnuCash users mailing list, not from the feature request database. On the mailing list, unfortunately, the responses revealed that the GnuCash team is not familiar with the concept, although it has long history and is a well established accounting discipline.

    So I decided to make an attempt to describe the idea instead of just referring to external resources (but https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cashflowstatement really is a good source to…

  5. Implement Open Banking API for online accounts

    There was already a request last December for implementing PSD2 in GnuCash, but this was declined as it is only a "legal framework" and not an API in and of itself. Now Nets have an API for their Open Banking solution which is in accordance with PSD2 and already implemented in many Nordic banks. There is even a sandbox available via their website:

    https://www.nets.eu/solutions/open-banking-access

    Will this be something that is a better candidate for future releases?

  6. Connect to banks using the Saltedge Spectre API

    An alternative (and free for most cases) bank connections could be done with https://docs.saltedge.com/accountinformation/v5/#quickstart .
    The project https://github.com/firefly-iii/firefly-iii currently have this implementations and it works perfectly, but FireFly III features are quite reduced. In fact, at the docs suggest GNUCash when a more complex financial app is required (https://firefly-iii.readthedocs.io/en/latest/support/features.html) :)

    Please consider adding this api to automatically obtain the back transactions. The api is well documented and quite simple to connect.
    https://docs.firefly-iii.org/en/latest/import/spectre.html

    Thank!

  7. GnuCash for Synology DSM

    GnuCash is available for Linux distributions like Fedora, Ubuntu, etc.

    Nowadays network attached storage (NAS) is quite popular. NAS-systems are relatively cheap and offer great value (file station, photo station, backup, etc.). NAS-systems from Synology (and many competitors) are based on Linux.

    It is beneficial for small companies that GnuCash becomes available on NAS-systems like Synology DSM.

    Typically a NAS is always running. The continuous availability makes it easy for somebody to update a GnuCash administration on a NAS by using a webclient. Without much effort, somebody else may check the same GnuCash administration at a later time.

    Although a…

  8. create an option to define what type of commodity prices are being imported.

    Once a week I download the week ending prices of all the stocks that I have owned to a csv file. Almost all of them import well. 2 do not. Those two are COP and ADP, because GnuCash assumes both are currencies.

    i.e.
    My CSV file has Conoco Phillips (COP) price and GnuCash assigns the value to Columbian Peso (COP)

    I would like an option to say that all of the imported prices are stocks, or to ignore currencies. Maybe a pop-up window asking what the individual price is associated with when there are multiple commodities with the same ticker.…

  9. "enable Google Drive" as option for exporting transactions

    Hello, I noticed on 20190517 that the "enable Google Drive" option does not appear when exporting transactions. Seeing as Dropbox has recently introduced some very restrictive measures, it might be a good idea to include other options. Google Drive works across all OS'es so its a good bet.

  10. reconciliation

    Only include transactions up to the reconciliation date. Having transactions with later dates only allows for more errors.

  11. Have an option to change the transaction color

    It would be very helpful to have the ability to highlight either a transaction or a group of transactions by various colors. This could be used to highlight the end of a quarter, a transaction in need of review, and could be used to group transactions based on user preference ie green transactions are credit payments and red ones are credit charges. Basically, they could be used to easily make certain transactions stand out on the register, making it easier to spot those transactions. Making transactions easier to spot, makes things more productive and less error prone.

  13. Add Balance column to Customer Report

    Having a Balance column at the far right of the Customer Report would make it easier to track/explain how partial payments and multiple invoices between payments effect the total due.
    I would also like to have the ability to turn off the balance due by age.

  14. file associate drag file

    would be amazing if you could associate a file with a transaction by dragging that file onto the ledger. Or if there was a hotkey available to make it faster to work with files.

  17. Business Quote Facility

    It would be nice from the business aspect of the program to be able to put together a quote for a customer, and then convert that quote to an invoice if accepted.

  19. Allow for transaction delays

    The idea here would be to use an account for funds in flight, allowing you to account for the delays between financial institutions.

    You would go into the Transfer Funds menu and it would have a tick mark for "delay". When this is ticked, another option called "Date Received" appears. If it has a different date, GnuCash would create TWO transactions. One which goes from accountfrom to Limbo, and another which goes from Limbo to accountto.

    Ideally these transactions would be linked such that a change in the amount or description would also reflect in the other accounts.

  20. Add user levels access (username/password), Setting MySql or Postgresql Database

    Need user level access, with username and password.

    Need database setting, for administrator only, not for all users. This is very important, to make database secure from all users access.

    Thank you
