    Hi Blair

    I sync 4 data sets between 3 computers, 2 windows 1 Linux and 2 Android phones using Moneydance’s internal sync engine. Add a transaction on one device and it appears on the other devices within 60 seconds. Trying to share data sets using any other method can result in data corruption.

    To set up syncing using Moneydance’s sync engine see support articles at

    Hope this helps

    Many thanks... I was able to get it to go. I'm using NextCloud

    Good day!

    Hi Blair

    I am not familiar with NextCloud. I have only tested using Moneydance’s internal sync engine via Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive. and pCloud. Provided you are using NextCloud via Moneydance’s internal Sync engine it should be OK. Whatever you do don’t share Moneydance’s data set directly via NextCloud. The way Moneydance save/reads data means that doing so will eventually result in data corruption.

    Hope this helps.
