I really like what I read.
There’s a free app for macs called cashculator. It’s a very basic app that allows you to set your own categories and track actual vs planned spending plus gives you some graphs on income, spending and balance. For me, a great feature would also be to be able to see something like that on here.
I take Zander’s post about fully customisable spending periods to mean you’ll be able to set the start and end dates of a period, so you could set the start date to the 25th and end date to 24th. They key word being fully.
I know this was posted a few months ago but also wanted to raise rollover targets as an option. Holidays are a perfect case in point. There are a few things that cost more at different times of the year and having at least an option to switch on budget rollover would be awesome!
Is there any update on when changes to targets and budgeting will next be introduced? I know the trello board says medium term, so next 3-6 months, but this was added in May 2016, which would have made 6 months January 2017. I keep coming back to the forum to see if there’s any updates on the things that irritate me (e.g. receiving money from friends and this not affecting my targets, not being able to set my spending periods, not being able to edit categories) and I see the response is usually “soon” or a link to the Trello board, but when the Trello board seems to be out of date, I’m not sure where to turn for an update - any ideas?
p.s. this isn’t a moan, I am 100% a massive Monzo fan
As far as I know, the Trello board is still up to date. I think the original plan was to make the changes within 6 months of May 2016 but as that got delayed (probably because of the launch of the bank / current accounts), you can now expect the changes within the next 3-6 months. Or a least, that’s what Tristan (who’s mostly responsible for the roadmap), has said.
I’m hoping that this particular issue will be resolved when the new bill splitting functionality is launched, which is due (I hate to say it now)…soon
Hi, I just wanted to ask if it would be possible to be able to start your month on a different date? Payday isn’t always the beginning or end of the month - for me it’s the 25th - so it would be great to be able to start the month on the 25th. Allowing people to set their month start date will really help with budgeting.
Also, I agree with the idea of weekly & daily budgeting, as long as you can choose the “start” date of your month.
