Hi,

ich benutze sein einigen Tagen GnuCash und habe einige Fragen dazu. Vielleicht kann mir jemand weiterhelfen:

Ich möchte eine Kontenstruktur für ein kleines Unternehmen anlegen und scheitere an der "Kontoart". Die Struktur soll einer deutschen Bilanz entsprechen mit der GuV als Unterkonto des EK. Mit den vorgegebenen Kontoarten ist dies nicht möglich, warum?

Irreführend finde ich die Möglichkeit bei Buchungen z.B. bei der Kontoart "Einkommen", was vermutlich einen "Ertrag" meint, zwischen "Ertrag" und "Gebühr" zu entscheiden. Diese Begriffe sind sehr irreführend. In anderen Kontoarten sind diese Bezeichnungen anders, aber genausowenig hilfreich.

Ich kenne GnuCash aus der Desktop-Welt als Linux oder Windows-Programm und finde es sehr gut, weil es flexibel ist, aber die Android-Version mit diesen beiden oben beschriebenen Dingen sind eher hinderlich.

Kann man das Problem irgendwie umgehen?

Danke und Grüße,
Olli

I've used the desktop-based GnuCash for several years now. I just recently upgraded to a smart phone and set about looking for an app that would allow me to enter my transactions on the go. I was thrilled to learn that GnuCash had an app that could export to the desktop program. Thanks a million folks for putting this together. You have my graditude. :)

Scheduled Backup to Google drive not working at all.
1: I disabled Google drive in settings > backup and export. 2: I reenabled it. As expected a new folder "gnucash" is created in drive.
3: I deleted all other gnucash and gnucash-beta folders from Google drive and trash
4: I configure a new scheduled backup.
Result: The initial backup, when configuring the new scheduled backup, is executed and placed in the newly created folder in Google drive. No other backups are created, ... ever...

There seems to be some problem with the scheduled backups again. I've noticed the same with ownCloud. I'd say they are not running for some reason. I'll investigate what's going on.

Turns out, I just lost a whole month of transactions.
I was about to transfer my monthly transactions to desktop by export to Qif and delete all transactions. It deleted all transactions alright, but the backup file never showed in Google Drive.

No problem, I have a daily backup to Google Drive going in xml.
I still see the backup-schedule, but no backup-files in google drive for a month.
No problem, i still have the local backup, that is done automagically. The latest Backup is from AFTER Export and delete.
After importing this, nu older backups available.
With a lot of luck I found a backup from three days ago.
Trying to reconstruct the remaining transactions now.

This is a very unsetteling experience.
If I have to check for the backup daily, why backup at all.

+Sven Schaefer that sucks! Sorry.
Google Drive operations have varied widely among users and we have to find a way to fix that. I have prioritized backup/export for the next minor release.
But one thing I find strange is that your latest local backup was AFTER the delete. We have to check this. Normally, backups are created before any destructive operations. But maybe due to the asynchronous nature of backups adds some unpredictability. I think maybe we can fix this in the next patch release already.

Since the latest (I think) update, I am no longer able to export only the most recent transactions. The SINCE field has no effect; the exported QIF always contains all transactions.

Also, when I synchronize in the reverse direction (PC->Android via Google Drive), always loading the same .gnucash file from GD, it gets repeatedly added as a new book with the same name instead of replacing the old book. While this behavior is logical in its own way, it was quite unexpected for me.

What is the correct method to repeatedly synchronize a single book in both directions?

Up until the recent updates introducing multiple books, I did it like this:

0. Set the PC version of GnuCash to save to a Google Drive folder and open its file in GnuCash for Android
1. Record new transactions in Android, using suggestions from existing transactions to speed up entry; maybe (during the same days) record other new transactions on the PC
2. Export only the new transactions from Android to GD (manually, no schedule)
3. Import the QIF on the PC to merge the transactions, then save the updated .gnucash file to GD
4. Re-open the updated .gnucash file from GD in Android
5. Go to 1.

This method no longer works (step 2 always exports everything, step 4 adds a new book each time instead of replacing the existing data under the same name).

Just got the update of the new version on my phone and my husband's. We have have had 3 exports to our dropbox account in the last 24 hours. All say Book 1. Can't identify which phone they're from, but I would say there is a definite bug somewhere.

I have no scheduled exports set up on my phone, and he has an export set up once a month.

I haven't had a chance to do an export to the desktop in a few months, so I was hoping that the "dual currency not exporting in QIF" issue might have been addressed. To summarize, when I export as QIF it says "one file per currency" but in reality, it only gives me one file in the primary currency and ignores all transactions in USD (my secondary currency). As of today, this still appears to be the case. (I had to manually type in each transaction into the desktop app. Not the end of the world because there aren't too many, but...)
Is this happening because these transactions involve a currency exchange? Is there even any way to handle transactions between accounts with different currency in QIF? Would it actually make more sense to write an XML file importer on the desktop GnuCash if QIF is so flawed in this regard?

ok, I have created an issue on GitHub: https://github.com/codinguser/gnucash-android/issues/571
to track and fix this. I think the transactions should at least be exported with their converted Euro amounts.

I just came across a minor bug. When I tick the "enable Google drive" tick box under "backup settings", a little pop-up notification says "connected to Google drive" but the box isn't ticked. Then I close the settings and reopen the settings and it is already ticked.

Figured I'd report it.

No, there's no need. Use the one you are more comfortable with. I've added it there because it's more convenient for us to have all issues tracked in one place.

[TRANSLATION] I think the strings underlined in the pictures are still hardcoded. One is the title "Preferences" in the navigation drawer, the others are all the strings in the dialog window that pops up when setting a recurring transaction/export.

Also, the name of the books (Book 1, Book 2, etc.) are in English.

Sorry for the bad photos but since I can't take a screnshoot I used my old shitty phone.

The stuff in that dialog, I unfortunately cannot change as it comes from a library. But the "Preferences" I can fix!
Also, I think you're right that we should also localize the default names of the books.

This is a fairly minor issue that I've been seeing for a while that I just haven't gotten around to posting. In fact it took me a while to realize what was going on. When doing a post with split currencies, the work flow does something unnatural. I'll try to explain:
- post a transaction that splits currencies (such as a 300 THB expense paid for with a USD credit card)
- once everything is setup in the transaction window, click save
- the currency exchange window pops up. (This is expected.)
- once you complete filling in the currency exchange window and close it, it returns back to the transaction window. (This is the unexpected part.)
- you then have to click save in the transaction window a second time in order to complete the transaction.

Since for single currency transactions, clicking save closes the transaction window and completes the transaction, is there a reason that you have to click save twice to close the split currency transaction? Isn't the expected behavior that after completing the exchange rate step, the transaction is already completed and saved (since you've already clicked the save button) and the transaction window closed?

Split transaction have to be saved twice in general. No matter the currencies.

Hi! The strings we talk about in here https://plus.google.com/u/0/+NgewiFet/posts/QsQkhkAPneA are still hardcoded?

Also on Crowdin I can't find the string "Compact view" we can find on transactions list.

Thanks for the reminder. I've extracted the strings and uploaded them to CrowdIn. Happy translating :)

Is anyone else having trouble with exports in GnuCash Android? No matter how (or where) I try to export a QIF file (on-demand, not scheduled), I get all transactions instead of just what's been entered since the file was imported. This happens whether or not the All Time switch is set and regardless of whether I choose a time to export from or accept the system default.

This is the second release I've had this problem with.

I'm running GnuCash Android 2.1.3, and the Mac version I am running is 2.6.14. I looked on GitHub and, if there's an issue for this there, I didn't find it.

After a closer look at the exported data, it turns out I wasn't reproducing the bug. I was getting a weird export due to bogus data in my test installation. I haven't been able to reproduce the bug with fresh data.

Please, tell us if you find this problem again.

There is currently no release in beta. So that is probably a Play Store error.

The GnuCash Android developers are happy to announce the release of +GnuCash #Android v2.1.0. This release brings the following changes:

- Feature: Use multiple GnuCash books simultaneously
- Feature: Backup/Export to ownCloud servers
- Feature: Compact transactions list view for single-entry mode
- Improved: Redesign of passcode screen
- Improved: Scheduled transactions now have more accurate timestamps
- Improved: Generate all scheduled transactions even if a scheduled is missed (e.g. device off)
- Fixed: Accounts lists not properly refreshed after switching between recent and all

The new release is rolling out slowly over the next week. Thanks to all the beta testers for feedback which was used to improve this release. Also much appreciation goes to all the translators on CrowdIn who work on making the app accessible to a wider audience.

OK.

BTW, in Balance Sheet report, the Net Worth seems to have text overflowing issue or probably position issue on potrait of small phone, e.g. SNote4. E.g. if the value is 6 digits and the currency has 3 characters. Pls have a look. Thanks.

Since the first beta I have been seeing this weird behavior on the right edge on settings UI. There is also a "strange" transition animation (don't know if it is intended as it is or not but it doesn't "feel" as it is).

Again, sorry for the shitty video.

I'm on a Nexus 5 with the latest Android Marshmallow.

Hi +Luca Vallerini, no worries about vid quality, I know what you mean.
Yes this is actually by design. It is part of the efforts to improve the usability of the UI for tablets, and also make preferences more powerful.
The edge you see is a peek into the preference screen which has been loaded. You can drag it to open it.
This will be refined further in future releases.

I'm still having an issue with the beta version doing unscheduled exports. As you can see, since August 5 there have been 18 exports. I have eliminated all of scheduled exports except one--and I am eliminating it now. I have the box checked to delete transactions after export. That does not happen. I'm not sure what is going on.
