Running MoneyWell 3 alongside new MoneyWell

As of March 2023 we released a brand new version of MoneyWell, only available to download from the App Store. This new version stores its data in a totally different location from both MoneyWell 3 and MoneyWell 2 (technically known as a container).

When you import a MoneyWell 3 Document into this new version of MoneyWell, this is a non-destructive operation*.

The new MoneyWell copies the underlying data file to its new location, it attempts to find and import attachments that were linked to your old Document and then when opening that Budget going forward, it never touches your original data again.

This does mean that any preferences you may have set at the app level may need to be done again in the new app.

The only possible shared data across apps may be passwords. If you use Direct Connect, MoneyWell stores your password in the macOS system keychain and requests access when it needs it. As this new version of MoneyWell is a new app, if it attempts to access the existing password you may be prompted to allow the new app to access this password. This will only apply for Direct Connect connections which existed in your old MoneyWell Document prior to importing it into new MoneyWell.

*While it is a non-destructive action, any instance of a computer opening a file can lead to all kinds of significant consequences, so please continue to ensure you have working backups before undertaking anything.
