      As a gnucash developer I can tell you multi-user support is still a real design goal for gnucash and one all active developers would love to reach as soon as possible.

      The necessary core rewrite however takes much more time than anticipated and contrary to what some suggest in the comments here hasn't attracted loads of extra interested developers. It's essentially hard work and currently done by less than a handful of volunteers. So if you are interested in contributing you're most welcome to let us know via irc or gnucash-devel and we'll work out what you can do. Note we're currently close to starting our beta-release cycle for gnucash 2.8. It will take us the next couple of months of our time to stabilize this big release so core refactoring will only be resumed after that.

        If someone provides code patches with the necessary changes, they would be included yes. It will need someone with knowledge of the Indian specific tax rules to provide these patches though.

          Thank you for your suggestion and offer for help.
          However as far as I can see gnucash is already translated in Spanish and the translation is rather up to date according to the translation project's statistics:
          http://translationproject.org/domain/gnucash.html

          So what exactly would you like to see translated in Spanish and are you offering help with ?

            For those who unlike mary haven't figured it out yet, here is how you can currently do this:
            - Open Tools->General Journal
            - Select View->Filter By...
            - Set the appropriate date range and click ok
            - Then select Report->Account Report

              The link to that image is not working. Perhaps this one serves as well:

                I have merged these two ideas into one because in code they are essentially the same thing. Implementing quotes for customers is about the same code as implementing purchase orders for vendors.

                    Thank you for your feature request. However unless the interface to this bank is publicly available AND there's a swiss developer with access to such bank account, this isn't going to happen. This is not a matter of ill will, but rather lack of sufficient information to be able to even consider this.

                      This feature is also requested in via our Bugzilla issue tracker:
                      https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=647343

                      You can read the comments over there which point out several difficulties to get this implemented.

                        I have moved this request to the GnuCash Android forum as it is a request for the mobile app.

                            "The creation of a cost center would be very interesting, because it could be created a cost center to a given project.

                            Please make your requests in English in the future. The gnucash developers don't speak Portuguese. Also please make only one suggestion per feature request. This request has two unrelated ones.

                              I'm still having trouble trying to understand what you want exactly.

                              Perhaps you are really talking about the fact that gnucash automatically reopens the file you have used last time and don't want this ? Would you rather gnucash asks you which file to open on startup instead ?

                              Thank you for your suggestion, but I'm afraid I don't understand your request. Can you describe in more detail what you are missing ?

                              In particular the term "Main Window" as opposed to "not open the account directly" is not clear to me.

                              Thank you.

                                I'm not using these fields either. When I don't need them I simply put a dash in the mandatory fields (only Name and the first Address line are mandadory). That's not much wasted time so you could consider this as a workaround.

                                  There are currently technical limitations in gnucash that make it difficult to implement a lookup for vendors when printing checks. Additionally vendors would not be sufficient. Employee vouchers and Customer credit notes may also be paid by checks, so lookups for those would be useful as well.

                                  While not exactly what you are requesting, gnucash 2.6.12 will have the ability to print checks from the Process Payment window for Customers, Vendors and Employees. If these people/companies have addresses specified, these will be used for printing on the check.
                                  In addition, if you didn't print a check when you processed a customer/vendor/employee payment, you can still print a check from the transaction that was generated from that payment. Again gnucash will figure out the address from the partner information associated with that payment.

                                  This new functionality does require the use of the business features. If you are not, there is no address information available.

                                  Would this be sufficient to close your request ?

                                    Thank you for your request. It's a variation of the currently most popular request to add categories or tags allowing to filter on something other than accounts only.

                                    On the other hand I also think you are using accounts the wrong way. Accounts shouldn't be named after the shop you're buying from but after the type of goods you are buying. You can use the Shop's name in the description or notes field instead.

                                    So the accounts in your example would be
                                    Payments:Food
                                    and
                                    Payments:House

                                    Then when you want to report all payments to ABC market, you can search from the account hierarchy on "Description" (or "Notes") "Contains" "ABC Market". And from the search ledger you can open an Account report if you like to print your results.

                                    Would that suffice for your needs ?

                                      When you transfer money between accounts in different currencies, gnucash will ask you for an exchange rate automatically. Instead of entering an exchange rate, you can also enter the amount in the foreign currency and gnucash will calculate the exchange rate for you. How much easier can it get ?

                                      If that's not what you mean, then please explain in more detail what you are looking for. Thanks.

                                          I'm in Belgium and "Tax Report Only -- No TXF Export" is available on my system.

                                          Greg - John is referring to an option in the dialog to configure your accounts for tax reporting (Edit->Tax Report Options).

                                          In order to use this dialog, you will first have to edit the Income Tax Identity in there (by clicking on the Edit... button). Enter an name and select a type other than None.

                                          Now you can start marking accounts for inclusion in the tax report. By default they are added as "Tax Report Only -- No TXF Export".

                                          Final note: I have played with this and found that even then the tax report itself is highly US oriented. It assumes a report currency of USD and will want conversion rates for all other currencies that might end up on the report.
