Reconciliation Improvement

Post by cliveju »

In order to maintain accuracy in my accounts, I reconcile against statements. Reconciled means that the transaction in MMEX matches the official statement.
However, many transactions are transfers between accounts. For example, a mortgage or loan payment.
When I mark a transfer transaction as reconciled in MMEX, it marks the transaction as reconciled in both accounts. This is incorrect. It should only be marked as reconciled in the account on the screen.
The issue that this causes is that when I come to reconcile the other account in the transfer against the statement, the reconciled balance does not match the opening balance, so I have to find these transactions and "unreconcile" them in order to ensure that I have the correct opening balance.

I used to use Microsoft Money and its reconciliation function only marked one side of the transaction as reconciled. This is the way that MMEX should implement reconciliation.
