Bug: Bil Pay Transaction Date

When making an online bill payment, the register shows the date you enter/make the payment instead of the date entered in the bill pay window for due, or processing, date. This adds unnecessary confusion when comparing the same un-cleared payment in MD and the paying institution's online website.

I do not know this is the same operation as in pre-MD 2015 versions, but believe I would have noticed if it was.

    Hi Avp2,

    I'm terribly sorry for our delayed response! Somehow your inquiry slipped through the cracks.

    The payment date method has changed to use the date that your financial institution's server replies to Moneydance about when the transaction will be registered with them. With many banks, this will most likely be the date that the funds are debited from your account, though all financial institutions have different preferences and restrictions for when they enter the transaction into their system (like financial institutions that don't support payments on weekends or holidays, for example).

    Based on the feedback we've received on this issue, we're going to add an option in the next release of Moneydance that allows you to select which date is used. In the meantime, you can manually change the date in the register in Moneydance to your preferred date.

    Please let us know if we can be of further assistance!
