Supporting synch for other online drives

Wondering if there is plans to support other online synch options like MS One drive or google drive in upcoming releases? Dropbox’s limitation of only three devices to access a personal account has caused me to drop its use. But Moneydance does not support other online drive synch options currently. Any plans to expand options?

    Hi CJ

    The Dropbox restrictions maybe not as bad as they first sound.

    The limit of 3 devices running Dropbox applications with a free account applies to the devices that can be connected to a Dropbox product itself, via official Dropbox applications, such as the official Dropbox desktop client or mobile applications.

    If your computer is using Dropbox Folder as a syncing method for Moneydance then as you have to have Dropbox Client installed, this count towards the limit. However, if you use Dropbox Connection and don’t have Dropbox Client installed, this does not count towards the limit. This limit does not apply to third party apps that connect to Dropbox via the Dropbox API, such as the Moneydance Mobile APP. Your mobile devices would only count towards the limit if you had Dropbox official app installed on your mobile devices for another reason.

    If you are only syncing between computers and don’t want to use Dropbox then you can use the Moneydance syncing method Shared Folder. I have tested Google Drive, Box.com, One Drive and pCloud and Dropbox as a bench mark with free accounts.

    There are some non-critical issues which I can expand on if you are interested.

    Hope this helps.
