    On an afterthought, and knowing that it probably won't happen:
    Why add a view of the SX in an account tree, which contains only accounts being affected by SX? In each account you would see the list of all SX affecting this account.

    This should only be an addition to any "regular" view, as it may not be the best way to get an overview over all SX, however, it can really help to get an overview over SX affecting a certain account.

    Actually a tree view may be in place as well.
    E.g. I have many Sx which refer to various insurance contracts. Other are school related, others loan related. So I would like to organize them in either a tree view or in folders.

    Well, there is no dislike button, so: I object :)
    Most users will only need one book. Some may keep older books (e.g. one per Business year), but even they will usually want to continue to work with the one that was last opened.

    So while it may help some users in some rare and only Initial cases, it would hurt all the other users, who would be presented with a useless dialogue every time they start gnucash.

    Hi,
    @1: Well, as you already noted, there's a Long way to go before FX appears on the horizon for Budgets. Let's try to get what can be achieved with limited effort.

    @2: Well, let's first just look at Income and Expenses. Here it both seems to make sense, e.g.: (IncActual - IncBudget) + (ExpBudget - ExpActual) = 'Net Experience Variance'. So I would call it an inconsistency between Assets and Liabilites - which I never Budget for.

    @3: Yes, this is a highly frustating experience. Check out this Feature request:
    https://gnucash.uservoice.com/forums/101223-feature-request/suggestions/1561553-copy-budget-value-into-all-budget-periods

    You should consider Splitting this request into several, so that someone looking for a Feature request to implement does not get overwhelmed but rather finds sufficiently small and well specified pieces to implement.

    Also please consider already existing requests. We will never draw enough Attention, if the same or very similar requests coexist and votes get split among them. So for initialization of Budget, please consider giving some votes to https://gnucash.uservoice.com/forums/101223-feature-request/suggestions/1561553-copy-budget-value-into-all-budget-periods

    One last comment: My growing Impression is that none of the developers are actually using the Budget Feature. Therefore even some smaller Features never got implemented, like the initialization. So I more or less gave up on budgeting in GnuCash for now... which is a pity.

    Gnucash currently provides Experimental Balance and Income Statement (= Profit & Loss) reports that support displaying multiple columns.

    They are still experimental because of some glitches with price calculations case of multi-currency or stock market scenarios. If you don’t have those, the experimental reports probably will give you what you need.

    Hi, this is essentially the same Feature request as this one:
    https://gnucash.uservoice.com/forums/101223-feature-request/suggestions/2149519-reporting-multiple-periods

    @Admin: Could you merge These two and add the votes, so it may get more Attention?
    @Mike: As I don't know if admins will follow my request for merging, please consider moving your votes to the above Feature request. If we split our votes on two very similar requests, we will never draw enough Attention.

    Hi,

    I think what is needed is the common "Previous Period" usually reported in financial publications. This could be extended to allow more than one previous period, so you could have the previous 12 monthse for example.

    Let me add an argument for implementing this:
    - I usually have all reports open, that I commonly look at. It is just much more convenient than having to open each one through a dialog.
    - It does slowdown my startup.
    - I do not always look at (all) the reports, since sometimes I'm just adding some Transactions.

    So, yes, please implement this Feature - unfortuneatly I'm out of votes :)

    I'm surprised not more votes get to this. Maybe the description is too short - and Tree View is not really a title that helps non-technical people to immediately understand what's being asked for.

    So, while it has been explained below already, for the sake of people coming here trying to get an idea of what this request is about:

    Gnucash should look similar to the Windows Explorer. Where in the Windows explorer you see the strcuture of drivers and folders, in GnuCash you would have your Account hierachy. Where in Windows Explorer you'd see the content of a folder, you'd see in GNuCash the transaction of a selected account. By clicking on an account, the content windows would immediately switch to the new account.

    Yes, this would be a very helpfull feat.
    I think only reports etc. should open new tab, or a option in the context menu "Open Account in New Tab". Otherwise, clicking in the tree should just do what was described: Opening the tree and displaying the selected account in the right.

    @cstim: The tirck with the account separator is actually quite usefull and to some extent makes this request obsolete. However, I doubt this trick is known to most users. The request is much more intuitive.

    There is a bounty available for implementing this feature.

    I think this feature would be a huge time-saver.
    Since I have to book all my credti card expenses, by portfolio and also anything I pay in cash manually in GnuCash, a strong autocompletion would be awesome. In the current version, it's almost useless, except for a few specialised accounts.

    The idea of carrying forward the budget should really be just a reporting option. It shouln't be that difficult to implement. Well, who am I talking, never having looked at the code of GNUCASH at all...?

    While someone is at it: It should be possible to somehow copy one months' budget to the next month - or did I somehow overlook such a feature? Having to enter each months' budget manually is stone-age technology :)

    This is already the default behavior. You have to use the Budget Report however to see the described behavior. In the budget itself, you only see values you enter. If you enter a value for an account which has subordinated accounts, this value overwrites the sum.

    Well, there is a problem no matter what. Admittedly, with open reports it takes much longer, but even without it takes ridiculous amounts of time...

    Font size could even be changable by using some kind of shortcuts, similar to browsers:
    STRG+
    STRG-

    If you like this feature request, please consider giving your votes instead to "Scheduled Transactions: Extend Formulas"

    The above feature request is more general and is not limited to mortgage. It solves many more problems and therefore has also the potential of attracting more supporters.
