Using trackers in transfers

Mon Dec 04, 2017 10:13 pm
When I use a tracker on a transfer between own accounts, Skrooge only considers the first part of the transfer for the tracker. For instance,

100€ from Acc A → Acc B with tracker "trip"

    Acc A has -100€ with tracker "trip"
    Acc B has +100€ without tracker
    The tracker has now -100€

Could you explain the reasoning behind? Shouldn't it be zero?

OK, this is may be a bug.

But what is the use case? Why do you want to set a tracker on a transfer?
Usually, trackers are used to a payment that will be refund. So, not really a transfer.

Could you clarify the use case?

I don't need it, really. It's just how I used to use tags in KMyMoney that would allow tags between transfers. If I run a tracker report on just Acc A, it shows that "trip" has -100€. The same on Acc B, and "trip" has +100€, even though it zero's out

Thank you for this answer.
I will do the change to set the tracker on both operations of a transfer.

PS: To replace KMyMoney tags (I don't know exactly what is it), did you try to use properties?
