The impact of hiding accounts

Using version 5.1.2 , and I have a number of zero balance accounts when I view the 'Home" icon. Want to leave the accounts in KMM, just not see the zero balance ones. They are closed with Financial Institutions.

If I close these accounts, then change the config. to “Do not show closed accounts” will that affect other accounts/transactions where the closed account had activity in the past ? I don’t want balances affected, and still may have some need for the (closed) account transaction in reports and other searching.

The main objective is to not see them. :slight_smile:

I haven’t been able to find a work-around for this. I would prefer that you could check a box “Do not show zero-balance accounts”. As you surmise, closing an account (i.e., an equity like Tesla after it’s sold) removes it from some important reports later on. A

@Atheist - Thanks, yes that is my concern also. Needing these accounts not to be visible whilst at the same time, not loose the audit trail.

There are a number of views now within KMM that offer a filter. Can a filter be added on the account list, the home/main page ? Balances > 0 ?

@Atheist - I have added it to the wishlist - 478904 – Do not show zero balance accounts

It was implemented in the master branch as a little Christmas present even before you posted the wishlist entry :slight_smile:

@ipwizard - Oh wow, thank you, a very nice Christmas present. :smile:

@ipwizard - I downloaded the latest DEvelopment release and can see the new feature, thank you. I will probably wait until that goes into the stable release of the AppImage though. :smile:

@Atheist - fyi


i also would like to hide the accounts having a current balance of 0.

i have activated the proper tickbox here:

and then restarted the program.

Unfortunately the three accounts having a current balance = 0 still show up (here the assets side, issue is the same on liabilities side):

Have i misunderstood the feature?
Or does the feature work in relationship to the account type (Checking, Savings, Cash, Loan, Investment, Asset, Credit card, Liability)? I mean it works only for specific account types?

You misunderstand the meaning of that setting. It applies to “equities” not to all accounts. Those are the subaccounts within Investment Accounts which hold a specific stock or other investment within that specific account.
There is no general setting for not showing 0 balance accounts. Depending on your situation, you may want to Close those accounts, and then there is a setting to not show Closed accounts.
