I can budget more than I have money
Suppose I have € 1000 and like to budget € 1001 an option that indicates that you are trying to budget more than you have money.
Monthly Spending Trend vs. Previous Month
Would like to see this type of graph to see how the current month's spending compares to last month's spending. What's the trend? Are you trending higher or lower than last month. This helps me determine how quickly I'm spending my budget and whether I need to throttle back spending or have wiggle room to spend more. A column or some sort of indicator in the Budget view would also suffice. But some sort of indicator of current spending indicator.
Simple Formulas on Budget Cells
It would be helpful to allow simple formulas like addition and subtraction in the budget cells. For example, 75+25 would populate the cell with 100. Or 100-25 would populate the cell with 75. This is a feature in EveryDollar and I found it to be useful when shifting a certain dollar amount from one budget category to another.
Budget view improvements
In the compact view Have a link from categories to the expanded budget view with that particular category selected. Hide categories with '0' budget but keep categories with 'no budget'. Allow folding categories (and thus hiding subcategories) with a single button. In the expanded view Show the status of the categories next to their names, where status can be "This month's budget" or "Difference" as seen in the Compact view. Also allow hiding zero-budget categories
12 month view for budgeting
I'd love to be able to plan & enter my budgets over a whole year, instead of going one month at a time. See attached for an example of a common spreadsheet format.
Increase visual distinction between categories and the group they live in
On the budgets or categories table, the group rows look the same as the standard category rows, making it difficult to parse. It would allow me to more quickly scan the list of budgets / categories if the category groups were more visually distinct from the child / ungrouped categories. Possibly give the group a heavier font weight or use a different background color for group rows. I've mocked up a quick example of what mean. Thanks!
