Scheduling

I have just registed with Moneydance and set up my account. I have also used the Reminder function to schedule payments. However, when the due date arrived, the transcations were not entered. In the 'Edit Transaction' box I have checked 'monthly' and 'every' and the day of the month and 'autocommit' '0' days in advance.

I tend to keep Moneydance open at all times. However, unless I close it and re-open it each day it does not seem automatically to recognise the new day?

    Hi Chris

    Currently Moneydance only applies auto commit reminders and updates the date upon launching the program. We are implementing a new timer system for MD2010 that will check when the date changes and apply the appropriate functions.

    I am sorry for the inconvenience.

    Sincerely

    Thanks for your response. I seem to have got a bit confused by asking two questions. From your reply, I understand that for the time being I need to re-launch the program for the date to be enabled. However, even in doing this my scheduled transactions do not get entered. How do I get them entered on the relevant accounts? Do I have to do this manually and if so please could you go through how I do this?

    Hi Chris

    If you check the auto commit option on a transaction reminder it will automatically be entered into the register n days before the date of the reminder. This will happen when the application is launched. I just created a reminder that is set to occur every day, I set the auto commit to occur 0 days before. I received a transaction automatically in my register for today. I then closed the program. advanced the date on my computer by 1 day and relaunched Moneydancee. This resulted in another transaction automatically being entered in the register. If you do that do you not get any transactions in the register?

    Thanks. I have sorted it out. I had confused some of my accounts. It was
    all my fault! I look forward to receiving updates about the service.
