Nested groups

Reported by Virgil Dupras | July 16th, 2010 @ 06:43 PM

From email:

I like the fact that you can use folders, I wish this capability would be expanded to have nested folders. This would allow building a hierarchy of accounts and categories. The example below illustrates this:

  +Personal Expenses Folder
     +Food Folder
          Dining Out
       Personal Hygiene Supplies
     +Medical Folder
  +Facility Expenses Folder

    Also requested in this thread

    Would it be possible to have sub-groups or does it make the reporting messy?

    (I can see that it might, but there are occasions when it would be helpful to group within a larger group.)

    I believe this feature is a must!

    Of course, anybody would be able to abuse this feature and add unnecessary complications. However, when used appropriately, it could really clarify things.

    It's great to be able to look at an overview of your accounts with general account categories. However, it's also beneficial to "zoom in" and look at the different accounts in your categories. This is especially pertinent to graphical analysis of expenses.

    I find myself fighting whether separate accounts for easier analysis, or to keep the transactions in a single account for easier overview. Why not have both? An account tree make it possible!

    This is the only thing that this application is "missing" in my opinion. I plead you to accept this ticket and implement it as soon as reasonably possible. I love moneyGuru, and I will switch to it from GnuCash as soon as the "account tree" or "account categories" is implemented.

    Thank you in advance,
