It would be great if autocompletion was remembered across accounts. As of now, if I switch banks or credit cards I have to reenter all this saved info. It is a huge waste of time.

    Hi bb,

    This issue has been discussed here on these forums at length.

    There are arguments for both global auto-complete and account-specific auto-complete.

    The obvious solution is to make it a user-defined option.

    A user-defined option would be perfectly fine with me.

    Any update on this? I remember in the Slack channel hearing that this would be a trivial change if I would just add it to the feature suggestions.

    We have an open suggestion ticket regarding having autocompletion function across all accounts within a Moneydance data set. I've attached it to this discussion and the developers will be looking into it. I'm unable to supply a timescale for the implementation of this suggestion but you will be notified via this thread if the change is made in Moneydance.

    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance!

    Checking to see if there was any decision made on this?

    For some time now, and unfortunately, global auto-complete has been implemented into MD 2017 without offering it as a user-defined option.

    I find it entirely unhelpful when entering an item into my investment account to have auto-complete offer items from my checking account.

    Without the user-defined option, this is a huge step backwards.

    Do you know what version it started with? I have version 2017.7.1 and I don't have it.

    Hi bb,

    Per The Infinitekind Blog - 2017.6
    When finding autocompletion matches, allow matches from other accounts if no similar transactions were found in the current account.

    It's the sixth change listed in the blog.
