I have been using Quicken since 1991 and am actively looking for a replacement before my Quicken sunsets on April 30, 2020. In comparing the two products, Quicken has the ability to customize the order of the accounts listed on its Side Bar yet I can not figure out how to do this in Moneydance.

After searching your knowledge base it appears that many people have been asking for this as far back as 2011. The way suggested to do this is to rename the accounts alphabetically which, in my opinion, is very lame. It would also seem that in eight years, you would be able to add this relatively simple feature.

My suggestion would be add the ability to reorder the accounts much like you are able to reorder/add/remove what appears on the Summary Page when selecting File -> Preferences -> Summary Page Tab. (See attached.) I really like what I am seeing in your product so far. Thank you.
