Reminders: Ability to permanently change reminder when entering a transaction

Some reminders change periodically, say a slight increase in the amount per month. It would be nice if I could update the reminder when I was entering the transaction into the register. Currently it is a two step process. I first select the reminder, which opens the transaction details, I modify that transaction then store it in the register, then I have to go back into the main Reminders window and modify the reminder to be the new value as well.

MS Money (which I hate but am still very much used to) has two ways of handling this, I would love to see both of these implemented in Moneydance in some form:

1) Ability to set the "amount" of a reminder based on the past X values for that same transaction (I usually set this to be the last "1" value, so that when the reminder comes up it was always the amount of the last time I entered it)

2) When using the reminder to enter a transaction, have it automatically (via prompt) update the reminder values. For example, I click on the reminder to store the transaction, change the price to the "new" price, submit to my transaction, then it pops up saying something to the effect of "you have modified this transaction from the values stored in the reminder. Would you like to update the stored reminder with these new values? Yes/No"
