Hello

I believe that you are intending to release a new version in the not to distant future.

Is there any possibility that you might address the following two (small, I believe) issues.

1. On distribution input, the screen allows the user to enter the asset code and then defaults the long and short name. The short name is defaulting to the asset code rather than the short name.

2. On purchase or distribution input, could you set the default of the "asset distribution" (Australian equities, International equities, Property etc) to be that of the last entry. I don't believe that there are any cases whereby the "asset distribution" for one purchase of an asset (code) would differ from the last.

Sorry, I cannot remember the wording used in MySF to refer to the "asset distribution".

Thanks
Bryan Lovquist

Hi,

The shortname is typically left as the code and this information is loaded from a table of ASX codes recognised by the software. Do you mean that you would prefer for this to load the shortname from other assets that were added with the same code?

Default asset distributions, usually referred to as asset allocations in MySF Manager documentation, can be defined for any asset class. To define default asset allocations for assets within an asset class please go to System Setup > Asset Classes and click on the link that shows the name of the asset class. A smaller window will open up. In this smaller window click on the "Edit default allocation" button in the bottom left hand corner of the screen.

After defining defaults in this manner you should find that there is no need to enter the asset allocation tables separately for each purchase or reinvestment in that asset class because MySF Manager will use the defaults entered. Of course you can still click on the View and manage asset allocations link and change the entries for a given asset.

Regards,

MySF

In my case I have investments in a number of managed funds. For each asset I use the APIR code as the code when identifying the asset and I have both a long name and a short name.

For example: HOW0001AU
Hunter Hall Value Trust Fund
HH VTF

TYN0007AU
Tyndall Australian Bond Fund
Tyndall Aus Bond


When I enter a purchase or distribution for an asset I would
like to enter the code (HOW0001AU) and have the long and short names default to those specified when I entered the first purchase of the asset.

Thanks

To continue the above.

I have defined two asset classes which are consistent with the ATO asset class definitions.

1. Public Trusts

2. Listed Shares and Equities.

I have defined a default Asset Allocation Table for "Public Trusts".

The problem is that the managed funds that I invest in (Public Trusts) of course all have different asset allocations.

What I want is, if I do a distribution reinvestment or a purchase of more units in a managed fund is that the asset allocation for the newly purchase units is the same as the previously purchased units.

ie. I want the asset allocation table to be tied to the asset code. I would like to define an asset allocation for HOW0001AU, TYN0007AU, MAQ0433AU etc.

Thanks

We will try and make these changes for the next update. Calling up a shortname is likely to be a simple change but the asset allocation tables are a little more complex.

Hello

I have been using the new functionality and in general it works well and makes the entry of distribution details / reinvestment much easier.

One thing that is still happening as mentioned in my first post is that the 'Short Name' is still defaulting to the asset code rather than the short name of the asset. This is currently forcing me to bring up the details of a previous purchase and copy/paste the short name into the screen. Any chance of addressing this?

When entering distribution reinvestment details there is a sub window on the right side of the screen displaying a tree hierarchy with the assets by code. Would it be possible to select the asset code there and then press the 'Add New' button rather than requiring the user to enter the code so defaulting in as much information as possible.

Thanks

Hello

I have defined asset allocation table(s) for each asset as described above.

Some of my investments have changed their asset allocation. For instance the fund manager managing a particular fund identified by the APIR code changes the asset allocation for that fund.

Is there any way to change the asset allocation of all investments (assets) having the same code (in my case identified by APIR code) ?

Thanks

Hi,

There is no quick way of changing the asset allocation categories for a list of assets at once. The only way is to go through and change each affected asset individually.

With regards to the question in your previous post, we are in the process of finalising a quick add screen for dividends and distributions including those received as cash and reinvestments. These screens will mean that you can record these events through one screen rather than two and values are taken from existing data wherever possible. For example, the asset allocation table is picked up from previous investments that have the same code.

We hope to include the quick add screens in one of the next two updates. The exact timing depends on the results of testing.

Regards,

MySF

Hi

As a request on the wishlist then.

Would you please add functionality whereby the asset allocation tables for all assets having the same code can be changed quickly and easily.

Thanks

Hi,

Yes, you should expect to see such a feature added into one of the next two updates.
