Have auto-complete fill in Tag associated with payee

I love that fact that auto-complete not only fills in the category previously associated with the name in the Description field (ordinarily a payee or payor), and that it even fills in the type of transaction (e.g., deposit or EFT).

What is missing is the Tag. It would be great if the Tag used with this payee or payor in previous transactions would also be filled in. Perhaps this could be an option that users could disable if they didn't like it.

(If there is a way to get Moneydance to do this already, please let me know. I have not been able to find it.)

    Hi Maddy,

    Thank you for considering this.

    I would like to add, as I think about this issue more, that it would be even
    better if there were a listing of payees, payors, and other entries in the
    Description field which could then be modified by the user, as one might want to
    set up different Descriptions differently. There might be some for which we
    would want a Tag attached automatically and others for which we would not want
    that to happen.

    However, I imagine that creating option for each Description would be more work
    to set up. Just having auto-complete available for Tags would be a great
