  1. 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.…

  2. "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.

  3. reconciliation

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

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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 account_from to Limbo, and another which goes from Limbo to account_to.

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

    Use case…

  13. 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

  14. Save read-only status in the "recent" entries

    when you use "open" you can specify "read-only" seems to work fine but... it looks like its not saving that in the "recent" entries. which means you need to redo all the path all-over again every time with the open if this would be saved with the "recent" entry it would be very very nice. Also along those lines . it would be nice to document that to create a read only access you need to "grant" insert update and delete to db.gnclock and select to db.*

  15. Change DBI test for mysql to allow proper read-only

    Currently Mysql DBI back-end requires too permissive "grants" on database. There is a Read-only tick-box but it seems to require Update, insert and delete on database. also "locking" is achieved trough a table in said database where-as mysql already has "locking" facilities for its tables. i would like to be able to add a Select+execute only user so i can say give access to an accountant without giving write access...risking data corruption by 3rd party.

  16. Add keyboard shortcut for "show/hide hidden accounts" in Accounts view

    Currently this takes five mouse clicks: View > Filter By > Other > Show hidden accounts > OK. A shortcut like Ctrl-H would be helpful.

  17. Sync android app with desktop

    My request is a way to sync the app with the desktop version. I input data via my pc as it is much easier, but then I would like to sync my app to the desktop versoon so I can quickly check balances. As gnu cash lacks such a sync feature, I would switch to a different app if not for gnucash being the only app with sub accounts

  19. 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.
