Version 6.0 (Windows) Considerations

In the previous version of the finance system (5.14 for Windows), my database was in C:\Controle de Gastos\ Controle.pfd, but from version 6.0 the synchronization stopped working with Android and I also noticed the absence of the synchronization function in the Tools menu. So I had to point the system to the database in C: \Users\Gilberto Junior\Google Drive\Controle de Gastos\Controle.pfd so that the synchronization would again work with Android.

This is normal?

In the system installation folder in C:\Program Files (x86)\Alzex Finance, I now also have two system executables, AlzexFinancePro.exe (new version) and PersonalFinances.exe (old version), both are working. I believe that with the update the old version should be deleted.

In Portuguese:

Na versão anterior do sistema de finanças (5.14 para Windows), minha base de dados estava em C:\Controle de Gastos\Controle.pfd, mas a partir da versão 6.0 a sincronização parou de funcionar com o Android e também notei a ausência da função de sincronização automática no menu Ferramentas. Então tive que apontar o sistema para a base de dados em C:\Users\Gilberto Junior\Google Drive\Controle de Gastos\Controle.pfd para que a sincronização voltasse a funcionar com o Android.

Isso é normal?

Na pasta de instalação do sistema em C:\Program Files (x86)\Alzex Finance, agora também tenho dois executáveis do sistema, AlzexFinancePro.exe (nova versão) e PersonalFinances.exe (versão antiga), ambas estão funcionando. Acredito que com a atualização do sistema a versão antiga deveria ser excluída.

Hi!

Congratulations for newest version 6.0...

but just a little problem. Why cannot we use usericons like older version. I lost all my beautiful :) icons.

I hope in update 6.0.1 version we'll have this possibility, won't we? Thanks

Hello,

There are several problems with the custom icons:

1. The icons size have been changed (once again), so custom icons now incompatible. When I would change it next time, they become incompatible again.

2. New set is much bigger and take place of custom icons, as you can see it in your database.

3. There is no custom icons in Android, iOS and Mac OS versions and will never be.

So I decided to remove them completely.

Hello,

You can delete the old version if you don't need it anymore.

Hi Alexandr,

I was also quite confused by this. When you make changes to the way sync works, can you please let users know rather than leave it up to us to figure it out. That way we can make the relevant changes to our set-ups.

Many thanks

Waiting for the answer about the synchronisation option in the new version ...

Hi! The system syncs, but your database needs to be in the Google Drive or Dropbox folder. This is independent of the sync option.

Yes I noticed that. But I wanted Mr Alexandr to confirm that.

The manual is mostly ready: https://community.alzex.com/knowledge-base/article/sync_ios

Sync via Dropbox is optional and only needed to sync between iOS and Android.

Sorry, the manual for Windows version has been updated with the 6 version release and it’s quite short actually: https://www.alzex.com/help/synchronization.html

Thanks Alexandr. I am mostly struggling with sync with the Android app. Four questions in relation to that:

1) Is my understanding correct that the sync functionality in the Android app is not needed anymore?

2) Sync between iOS and Android should now be possible using GDrive, correct? Both apps can access GDrive now.

3) How do I ensure that the latest version of the database is downloaded from GDrive before opening the file?

4) How do I ensure that the latest version of the database is uploaded to GDrive after closing the file?

Many thanks

Carsten

I've updated the article, now it's included how to sync iOS and Android apps and recommendation not to use Google Drive on iOS (you can, however, if your really want to): https://community.alzex.com/knowledge-base/article/sync_ios
