            Bug ID: 426851
           Summary: Need to see real, historical share price balance in
                    "Home" view next to share accounts
           Product: kmymoney
           Version: 5.0.7
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: REPORTED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: kmymoney-devel at kde.org

  Target Milestone: ---


Great program, but I am missing some vital but incredibly simple functionality.
>From the "Home" view, the current balance of each account is shown next to it.
For accounts containing shares, this does not reflect the simple amount paid
for them, as the current balance of that account is adjusted to match the last
price per share paid.
This is utterly not what I would want to see, as it stops any chance of quickly
visually checking that the amounts taken from one account (perhaps a bank) are
now exactly in another (a shares account)
This adjusted balance is never any use to me, and would never be used under any
circumstance, -but it takes the place of the one thing that would be vitally
important to me.
I am sure that the current behaviour is exactly as you intend it to be, -but it
does not work for me, as my needs are simple, -just working out tax.
I need an option to be able to quickly and easily see on the "Home" view,
without having to generate reports, the simple balance of real money paid or
received, without the program altering any prices -just like all the other
-I am astonished how hard it is to find such a simple feature, having looked at
several programs without success. I, and perhaps others too, am likely to start
using the first free program which adds this simple thing, of dealing with
real, historic prices, rather than the "last" price.


1. buy 200 xyz shares for $200
2. buy 100 xyz shares for $200


The account containing the shares, as seen from the "Home" view, will show a
balance of $600


I would dearly wish to have an enablable option to see the actual $400 that was
paid for the shares in the balance in the "Home" view.
