Split display in From/To columns

Reported by Virgil Dupras | January 30th, 2012 @ 02:46 PM

from email:

In the From or To in the transaction list: if the From is split, show up as "Split", or if the To is split, show up as "Split".

Use Case: Currently a split transaction shows the first From and first To. This can be misleading to the user who might look at the transaction and think it's only between 2 accounts. The user has to view the more info for a transaction to find out if it's split or not.

    I'm split on this one (pun intended). First, it's not the first account that is displayed, but all accounts involved in the split. If you have a split from account1 to account2 and account3, To will show "account2, account3". The problem, which you've probably experienced since you think that only the first account is displayed, is that sometimes the column is not wide enough to display all accounts.

    I like being able to, at a glance, see what accounts are involved in splits, but it's only possibly useful when there's at most two splits (otherwise, you'd have to keep your From/To columns very large all the time). So yes, maybe it's better to just display "-- Split --".

    Ahh, maybe it's possible to still show the comma separated list but when the column is too small truncate all items in the list individually rather than the list as a whole? This might be a little difficult to code, but it would keep the column viewable at a glance like you prefer.

    Content in Column: "Account With Long Name 1, Account That Isn't Displayed 2"
    Currently displayed truncated: "Account With Long Name 1"
    What could be displayed instead: "Account Wi.., Account Th.."
