Add "Include Subaccounts" checkbox when getting online transactions
Similar to the Include sub account checkbox when reconciling an account, it would be very useful if when retrieving online transactions that the matching algorithm had the option to consider transactions within subaccounts. This feature would enable Envelope Budgeting - where I have one actual checking account but within GNUCash I subdivide it into several "envelopes", and pay for things out of those envelopes. Currently if I download transactions then modify them to debit the sub account, upon next downloading transactions the same ones come back, because they matching doesn't consider subaccounts.
I should also mention, your software is excellent - thanks for the work that you have done.
This is an excellent idea. It appears to me that GNUCash is an great program for tax accounting and such but is a very poor program for budgeting. While charts and darts have their place, the easiest method of making a budget and sticking to your set spending goals is the tried and true "Envelope Budgeting Method". If GNUCash could implement your idea, it would become great at doing both accounting and budgeting.
