Feature Request

Welcome to the GnuCash “New Feature Request” forum.

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

  1. Add the ability to attached scanned images to invoices.

    Corresponding bugzilla item: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=336843

    Gnucash could kick off new process to display image based on type (gif, jpeg, pdf, etc) maybe. Similar function is present in Quicken.

  2. Allow saving of Custom Reports without changing name, overwriting existing report

    Corresponding bugzilla item: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=649284

    Currently the 'Add Report' button is only available if a report's name is changed. If a report's details are changed e.g. new account added/date range changed then the name has to be changed to be able to save this, causing clutter.
    If the 'Add Report' button was always available, the option to overwrite the exisiting saved report could be given.

  3. Support for Credit notes (or negative invoices)

    The current version of GnuCash doesn't have a paradigm for Credit notes.

    For clarity: with a credit note, I mean the opposite of an invoice, or a
    "negative" invoice, depending on the view you prefer.

    This report is created as a follow-up to the mailing list thread called "GDA:
    status", although most of this thread deals with GDA and not Credit notes. The
    relevant part of this thread starts May, 27th 2008.

    According to Derek, it's not possible to simply remove the negative totals
    error check. The internal logic relies on value+accounttype to determine
    whether a transaction is an invoice…

  4. File linkage to transaction

    Currently in v2.6.0 there is a possibility to associate file or location to the transaction. However there is no possibility to unlink it. Also there is no 'symbol' to allow user to see there is a file/location linkage to the transaction. It should show up so user will be able to differentiate when transactions have a file associated or not.

    As the link in an earlier comment currently states: as of GnuCash 3.0 it is possible to export transaction data to CSV. Excel can perfectly import CSV files so this request has now been fulfilled.

    To export you can open a register or general ledger. Optionally filter the data to only what you want to export and then select File→Export→Export Active Register to CSV.
    If you want to export all transactions in one or more accounts, you can instead use File→Export→Export Transactions to CSV

  6. Change minimum vertical resolution to work on netbooks (1024x600)

    The GnuCash window can not be resized below about 700 pixels high, which does not fit within the space available on a netbook 1024x600 screen minus Gnome panels. Even autohiding panels doesn't allow a full view.
    Were the restriction removed, the register window would seem to work fine, although the edit scheduled transactions dialogue may be a bit cramped.

  7. Improved Close Book

    I'd like to have a better "Close Book" implementation. This should be implemented without affecting the reports (meaning, that the zeroing transactions would never be included in the reports). I'd like to be able to produce reports over several years.

    Closing entries should be ignored by reports and most reports I know of effectively do so automatically or can be configured to ignore closing entries.

    Should you still find reports that show closing entries where they shouldn’t, please file this as a bug in our bugzilla database (https://bugs.gnucash.org)

  8. Reassociate already existing transactions with a bill/invoice

    For example, you have a bill or invoice and payment relating to it gets recorded by some method other than the Business, Process Payment options, perhaps as a result of importing bank data. Rather than deleting the transaction and remaking it through the Business menu, why not just click some option to reassociate it with the invoice/bill, and let it mark that invoice/bill as payed if it's for the right amount. This can be a real time saver when you have a large number of transactions like this.

  9. Allow Filter By settings to be saved and reused

    When I open my checking account, from the View | Filter By menu I set the Filter By settings in the Status tab to only show Unreconciled, Cleared, and Frozen status. I would like to see these filter settings saved and reused when I close and reopen GnuCash so that I do not have to redo the Filter By settings every time.

  10. provide a means to export transactions

    At present, only accounts can be exported. GnuCash should have an export facility, allowing all the transactions within a selected account (or all selected accounts) to be exported to format such as QIF, QFX or even CSV. There is a third-party Java program that does this, partly. GnuCash should do it well.

    Thank you for your request. GnuCash 2.6.x supports a simple export of transactions to CSV. For 2.8.x this is being impoved to be able to export transactions in such a way that the exported file can be imported directly into gnucash again (allowing to move transactions from one file to another).

    As for the option to export scheduled transactions together with Export Accounts, please file that as another request. This is another part of the code.
    Thank you.

  11. Add a right-click option for jumping to an invoice/bill that a transaction refers to.

    Similar to how you can right-click and jump to the other account that a transaction refers to, but have another option to instead be able to jump to the invoice/bill that the transaction refers to.

  12. Show account colors also in the chart of accounts

    Accounts can have colors assigned to them, in the "Edit account" window. This color should also be shown in the account hierarchy (e.g., hi-lighting the account names), which would help us locate commonly used ledgers quickly. Also, this feature might make this drab but useful software brighten up a bit as we continue adding and tracking new accounts.

  14. Display (e.g. in form of a small icon) if a file/location is associated with transaction

    Please enable the possibility to display somehow if a file/location is attached to transaction. Don’t want to ‘right click’ all to see if a file is attached or not.

  15. X-Plattform / relative / ... file attachment pathes

    Currently, file attachments are stored with their absolute path on the file-system. This makes it impossible to use a GC environment (datafile and attachments) cross-plattform via sync (dropbox, git, etc). Syncing on the same plattform, also is difficult as you need the same pathes as well.

    Some ideas:
    - Pathes are stored relative to the gnucash file
    - Files are kept inside the datafile / -base
    - Usage of environment variables

    This feature has been implemented in our development branch, which will eventually be released as gnucash 2.8 (currently scheduled for early 2018).

    Thank you for your request and feel free to send new ones!

  17. Import invoices

    I would like to be able to import invoices (created by my shopping cart) into Accounts Receivables. It doesn't have to be individual items just an invoice total and GST. The only other required info would be invoice number, customer number and date. Preferably as a .CSV or .XLS.

    This feature has already been implemented in the unstable gnucash version and will appear in GnuCash 2.6. It is marked as an optional feature though, so its availability will depend on how your version of GnuCash is built.

  18. Add 'Memo' (Notes) to list of choices of columns for .csv import

    I use GnuCash 2.4.11 on Windows. Currently, the choices available for the columns in GnuCash .csv import are 'Date', 'Description'. 'Balance', 'Deposit', 'Withdrawal', and 'Num'.
    The 'Generic import transaction matcher' has a column in 'List of downloaded transactions' for 'Memo', but predictably is always blank since there is no discernable method of selecting a .csv column for 'Memo'. I am assuming that 'Memo' is the same as 'Notes' displayed when using 'Double Line' display for an account.

    The csv import has been reworked fairly intentensively in the current development branch. In gnucash 2.8 it will be possible to select both a memo column and a notes column. This version is currently expected for release early 2018 as other major changes are being implemented still.

    Thank you for your request. Feel free to submit additional requests.

  19. Replace the "Case insensitive?" button in Transaction Search by a checkbox

    Cuirrently, each line of the search criteria in Find Trahsaction has a button "Case Insensitive?" It is uinclear what the actual state of the case insensitivity check is, however, since clicking on the button only changes its grayness. That button should be replaced by a checkbox.

    This request has been implemented for gnucash 2.6. The button has been changed into a check box with the label “Match case”.

    Thank you for your request. Feel free to make any new requests!

  20. Add feature to show the 'hidden' column in the Accounts tab

    In the accounts tab, you can select to view a number of different columns. I would find it helpful to show the 'hidden' column so that I can see which accounts have the 'hidden' attribute selected/deselected.
