Where can I move my Moneydance data files? I know that I can move it to Dropbox, but what about iCloud? Leaving the data file on my computer causes my "Reminder" transactions not to post until I open the file on my computer. So, when I'm traveling using my iPhone & iPad for transactions everything posts but I m always missing the "Reminders" transactions until I reach home and open Moneydance on my desktop. So, what is the best solution.?

    If you are running Moneydance 2017 or 2019 YOU MUST NOT move your data set to any type of cloud server.
    If you do you risk your data set becoming corrupted due to they way Moneydance save/reads a large number of small transaction files.

    The only thing I can suggest is before you travel, any transactions you want to enter, right click on them in the reminder calendar and select “Record next occurrence”.

    Hope this helps.

    Another thought.

    You could increase the “auto-commit” days so transactions reminders are entered before you travel and cover the period you are away.

    Hope this helps.
