Blue dots

When importing downloaded transactions, they are identified with a blue dot (per the 2015 manual chapter 4).
I want to use python to find these downloaded transactions and process them but I cannot determine how.
Can anyone throw light on programmatically finding txns with blue dots?

    Hi David,

    Great question! For any given transaction you can check if it is yet to be confirmed using the .isNew() method. If true, it will be displayed with the solid blue dot. For recent versions of Moneydance (2017 and up) you can use the getOriginalOnlineTxn() method to get the information that was in the original downloaded info (if it exists).

    Thanks! I'm using md 2017.7 (1668) so this should work for me.
