Thank you for contacting Moneydance support.
There's a new option in Moneydance 2019.3 which allows you to enable or disable auto-committing of reminder transactions on specific computers. We added this option because when you're data is synced automatically it's possible for the reminders to be auto-committed on multiple computers nearly simultaneously (or at least while one or all are offline), resulting in duplicates of the resulting transactions.
Could you check and see if this option is enabled on your computers (as outlined in the article below)? I'd recommend only enabling this option on one of your computers
If the Auto-Commit box is not checked when you create your Transaction Reminder, the transaction will not be applied to your register until/unless you manually apply the reminder, as outlined here
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have further questions or need any assistance.
Thanks for the quick response, Maddy! Right now, we have Auto-Commit enabled for one computer and not enabled for the other computer (as you suggest). This address the issue.
I was hoping MD 2019 would keep Reminders in sync so that – if Auto-Commit was enabled on both machines, whichever computer loaded MD first would Auto-Commit that day's Reminders – then the second machine to load MD would detect this and not Auto-Commit again (possibly creating dups or writing over Reminders possibly changed) from the first computer.
We'll stick with one computer with Auto-Commit enabled and one not. However, I would like to suggested an enhancement where both computers could have Auto-Commit enabled as outlined in the above paragraph.
