[GNC] Cloud storage for shared access?

Stephen Mudge
Hi there. I am new to the list and as I am accessing this through my phone
I am unable to see if my question has been asked before. If it has, I
apologise.

If I move the account I have set up on my pc to a cloud drive like Dropbox
or Google drive, would I be able to access it through the mobile app to add
expenses while "in the field"?

Many thanks.
Steve

Hi Steve,

If what you call "*account I have set up on my pc*" is the Gnucash Desktop
(GD) XML file and what you call the "*mobile app*" is GnuCash Android (GA )
. . . , you can transfer your XML data file from your GD via DropBox,
Google Drive or another way to your Android and open it in your GA, edit it
in GA, then you can export XML in GA to the Dropbox (Google Drive is not
supported by GA), download the XML in the PC and open it in the GD.

But . . . there are other ways of transferring information between GD and
GA.

one additional step
The Android App compresses the xml, so it needs decompressing before
you can import it.
Its' caught us all at some time!
