    Yes it works like before.

    Thank you!

    It still can't merge investments but maybe someday?

      Is it downloading schwab investment transactions to avoid manual entry using Plaid?

      This is looking promising.  I resubscribed to Plaid and downloaded to all accounts.  Over 3 months of cleanup to do but I have time.  Will run parallel with Quicken until I clean it up.  Do you have a shortcut for changing category.  All dividends defaulting to 'misc other' instead of 'dividend income'.  Need some magic!!  :blush:

      Ignore my question.  I have downloaded an extension called 'Find and Replace' so I can fix most of my issues.  I changed my investment account category to 'dividend income', just wish I could change it by 'Action'.  But, since the world is following modern monetary theory, interest on the way out anyway, so probably not an issue as we all look for equity.
       At any rate, thanks for all the work performed on this release.  It will take me awhile, but once I clean it up, 'back to moneydance' for me....

    @jr

    Did you download and install Moneydance 2022.3 (4068)?
    This build is required in order to be able do download investment accounts.

    Then, in the Set Up Moneydance+ window, you'll need to click on the "None" label in order to select which account in Moneydance corresponds to the account names and numbers on the left side of the window. After doing that and selecting the Moneydance account from the menu, using the ⌘D keyboard shortcut or clicking the Download button when the account is selected will cause Moneydance to download the transactions for that account.

    Please keep us posted on your progress, Thank you!

    not sure if this helps jr - but I had similar issue last night as the accounts I was downloading were already setup via Online Banking and working prior to October.

    Once I got MoneyDance+ all setup AND then I had to go to Setup Online banking and disabled that account (I am assuming this disabled the "old" way of downloading). Then it downloaded fine.

      In resetting my accounts and adding others for Plaid I notice that in order to download credit card activity via Plaid, the account must be classified as a 'Liability'.  This is an issue for me as I use my credit cards similar to a checking account, thus I have them setup as 'Asset' ( a contra asset).  Is there an easy way to change account type, as I do not want to add 'new' credit card accounts and move transactions.  On most of these, I could do it the old fashioned OFX way, but Amex and Bank of America would not allow that.   Any ideas appreciated.

    That worked BEAUTIFULLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Thank you.  Only did my Bank of America as I could tell they weren't accepting OFX signups.  That was so painless.  The warning helped me realize that credit card made more sense than liability.  Thank you!!

    So David Greene, just to clarify.
    Instead of changing your credit card account type from Asset to Liability, you changed it/them to Credit Card?
    I hope so, because mine are already Credit Card accounts, and I have been waiting patiently for this to settle down and be correct and easy. Schwab is my prime concern, but I also have BofA cards which I have been downloading by .qfx files manually downloaded from BofA website. Not hard, but OFX will be easier.
    Did you have to make a setting on the BofA website to allow 3rd party downloads?
    Thanks.

    Yes. I changed to credit card. Seems to work perfectly. But as they say,
    backup before you do it, then review afterwards. I gotta say, I am
    impressed at the tools available with Moneydance!

    davet65 - I bit the bullet and downloaded six months of data from Schwab yesterday.

    Took about 2-3 hours to clean up (duplicate transactions and four items that are now reported as "still not right".) The good news is the four items, once you know them, are just boring mechanical fixes. [Still, it would be nice if the program handled them properly.]

    I was pleased to catch up (5 accounts) in only one evening.

    If curious, here's the thread about what is still wrong with investment accounts (at least Schwab).
    Hopefully, they will be fixed in the near future.

    @David - shout out to @Stuart Beesley, who wrote the Toolbox extension. That and Quote Loader I couldn't live without.

       All going well.  Any tips on when to download schwab transactions, via Plaid.  It never downloads all transactions for the schwab date.  Should I wait until at least 10PM or so at night, before attempting to download via Plaid?

      I googled this, so answers my question.  Will see tomorrow, if all came thru.
       From googling:
    Typically, Plaid will check for transactions once every 6 hours, but may check less frequently (such as once every 24 hours) depending on factors such as the institution and account type.
