Automatically add dividends, not possible?

Saturday, Oct 21 2017 by

I was looking at the analysis tab of one of my portfolios, and noted that one could see how much of the profit was dividends and how much was in equity. However, I also noticed that the dividend line was flat. Looking in the FAQ, I found which may solve the problem, but I would rather not have to manually enter all the dividends for my diversified portfolios.

Is it possible to have them added automatically?

Also, is it possible to have a "portfolio of portfolios" and is it possible to display the value of portfolios as a whole in more than one currency (or change currency from pound and back)?

Both of these have been suggested here

Sadly, when bored, I read through these.

Many of the suggestions are entered by StockoStaff which would suggest a high likelihood of delivery although this will be influenced by votes and ease of implementation. I can't find the link to where I came across the timeline but I remember that 2017 was the target date for major improvements in functionality. There are hints in articles that this is 'RealSoonNow' and personally I'm hoping 2017 will deliver me a Darvas box and improvements to mobile access (although I'm considering a tablet for visibility and ease of access, rather than a laptop).

We are working on all these features, but I'm no longer providing release dates. The reality is that we're working on a big project with lots of dependencies and it takes time. We'll be inviting some users into a beta at some point in the coming months.

Completely understand and appreciate that multiple dependencies add to complexity (and timescales). Until I learn't to program I never understood the phrases "I'll add it to the queue" or "it'll be ready when it's ready"; the quirks of programming have to be experienced to be appreciated.
