Auto-commit Reminders up to specified date

I really like MoneyDance, and less convoluted than other tools for personal / home finances.

I have a small suggestion by way of an improvement request. When I set up reminders I can set an auto-commit of a number of days. I use this to see what my predicted balances will be at my next pay day. I set it to 31 days so cover a full month. However, as I get to the end of the current month, I want to look a bit further ahead to the next month after the current one. I can fix that by extending the auto-commit date, but that just means more and more yellow / future lines to scroll through.

What would be really cool is if I could set an auto-commit date rather than a number of days. So, if my pay day is the 6th of the month, I'd like to be able to set the auto-commit to be anything that will land up to the next '6th of the month', or the next '6th of the month' plus one month.

Even even better, auto-commit anything up to the next '6th of the month' (or whatever day of the month I set) but after, say, the '20th of the month' start to show me the '6th of the month' plus one month.

Does that make sense? Doable?

Email me if it doesn't make any sense.

    Hi jmsmith.res,

    If you haven't done so already, take a look at the Money Foresight extension for Moneydance.
    (Moneydance menu bar > Extensions > Manage Extensions > Money Foresight).

    It provides a table view as well as a graphical view of account balances based on Reminders. The graphical view can be positioned on the Summary Page. It has become a mainstay on mine.

    The free version forecasts out to 1 month. The paid-for version unlocks that limit.

    Here's a link to the Money Foresight webpage. Be sure to click the 'Features' link for info.
