Missed Scheduled Transactions

Asked by Nicola Johnstone on 2010-12-01

I am using a Motorola Milestone Android 2.1 update 1 and V1.4.3u1 of Financisto.

I am having a problem with missed scheduled transactions which I can reliably repeat and was wondering if a fix/update was planned.

I have several scheduled transactions and if one is due and the phone screen is off it works. However if I Power the phone off or have a crash and restart the phone then DONT run Financisto none of the scheduled transaction that have been due appear in the relevant account when I do get round to running the program . As I have quite a few scheduled this then means my account balances are incorrect.

It would be useful if the program/service could start when you switch the phone back on and any missed transactions are then actioned-at the moment it means a manual entry posted to the relevant account which isn't ideal and will mean i will have to use something else until/if its fixed as I rely on my balances being correct so as not to go overdrawn?

Other than that the program is brilliant and everthing I need.

Kind Regards

Nicki

I agree, it seems as if a service runs in the background after entering the program - this means all all is Ok and schedules get honoured.
If you do not enter the program after a re-boot, then no background service has been started so transactions get missed. could this be right?
An easy fix for this would be to get the program to start up on re-boot. I believe this is possible on Android?

However a scenario may exist where the phone is switched off fully during a period of scheduled transactions and these will end up never being run.
For this scenario, you probably need an extra field with a flag of last run, so it can pick up on old missed schedules?

Thanks

It's definitely a bug - which we already fixed once - and will fix again in the next release :) Thanks!

Can you help with this problem?
