Auto Reminder Entry

Glenn's Avatar

I am finding that Moneydance regularly 'forgets' to record automatic reminders, even when set to auto-log the day prior. Can you advise if this is a regular problem and is there a fix?;
Thank you;

    Got to PREFERENCES -> NETWORK & make sure there is a tick in "Auto-commit Reminders"

    Have done so with all entries. Some will auto comit others don't for some reason. Also, doesn't seem to make any difference if I auto-comit a day previous to the required date. Frustrating!

    My suggestion above is a MD universal setting, this has to be switched on in addition to the auto-commit on individual reminders.

    Are you leaving MD open permanently? I believe there is some "on open" code relating to posting of Aut-commit reminders and always shutdown MD when I am finished with it for the day. Never had an auto-commit fail except on the few occasions I've left MD active overnight. - a fellow user (and of course my input may be outdated - I'm still on 2021.2)

    Thanks Jeff. Can you ellaborate on the MD universal setting. I'm not familiar with it. I do leave MD open all the time. I assumed this wpuld better facilitate auto commit.

    The preference setting on the network tab is intended for use when you are syncing Moneydance between systems.

    Moneydance is not intended to be a 24/7 application hence it does not do routine polling to determine things like day changes so it can go around and do things like reminder posting when a day change has occurred.

    The sort of things is does on a time basis is on a elapsed time basis, so activities like regular data saves, checking to see if there are any updates from syncing operations.
