Employee Stock Options

I'm new to Moneydance and I'm trying to set up my employee share options. I have company shares, made up of employee shares which I bought and matching shares paid for by my company over the past three years (ie 6 lots in total). I've set up an investment account in Moneydance with an opening value, but this shows as cash. How do I set this up correctly in Moneydance to reflect my share ownership etc?

Thanks for your help.

    How are the shares you purchase paid for? If the purchase is deducted from your paycheck, you should have a split transaction attached to your salary deposit allocating the funds into your investment account. Then you would do a buy for these shares from that cash. If the share are purchased from a bank account then you can do a buyxfer from that account. Or if the bank download shows a transfer of cash into you investment account just do a buy transaction.

    For the employer shares, create an income account named "Employer contribution". Do a buyxfer from this account for the shares. You may want to have this category as a sub-category of your salary to link it with your total compensation.
