One thing I like in MS Money is that when I enter a transaction manually and there is a similar transaction scheduled, it will ask me if it is the scheduled transaction or not. When I click yes, it will automatically "pay" the scheduled transaction. It will also offer to change amounts, accounts or categories for the future occurences of the scheduled transaction, but that's not as important. Any chance this feature could be implemented in the future?
I'll mark your first request as a feature request and leave this ticket open to see how many votes it gets.
As for the second feature - when you pay a transaction manually, you can review its details before saving it. We do not plan to implement a review for automatic transactions at the moment - if you need to review a Scheduled transaction regularly, you should disable auto-pay and pay it manually instead.
