We just rolled out the ability for premium users to create additional users to access their accounts. This has been a highly requested feature and is ideal for a couple who has joint bank accounts.
When you create a new user to access your account and they add transactions, their username is appended to the description of the transactions they add so you can easily see who has added what transactions. The main users name will not show up next to all the other transactions to make things easier to read.
To set up additional users for your account, you must be a premium member and then go to Settings and click on the "Additional Users for this Account" link. You enter a new username and password on this page to set up the new user.
All additional users will have the same permissions as the main user. This means they can add/edit/delete transactions, reminders, notes, gadgets, etc.

You can now change how you want your dates displayed on the site from the Settings->Date Format and Timezone menu. You can choose from mm/dd/yyyy, dd/mm/yyyy and yyyy-mm-dd.
I'm not quite sure how this setting had been left out, as it had previously been available. Anyway, it's back up now and is working in both the standard and mobile site.

We have added the ability for you to export your data based on category. You can now select between all accounts and specific accounts and all categories and specific categories. This will make it easier to export exactly the data you want.

We are proud to announce the release of a highly requested feature: Limit Histories. Now you can view your past spending limits compared against what you actually spent. Unfortunately, all previous limits are based on the current limit, but from now on, the history will reflect the limit for that given month.
To view your limit history, go to the Limits page (Tools -> Spending Limits). Now there will be a navigation box that lets you click on "Limits History". This will take you to the graphs showing your history.

I wanted to let everyone know that we updated the Import tool for premium members slightly to allow them to import their custom fields (memo, payee and check #). These options now show up when you import a file.

We just released a new premium feature that allows you to view some advanced reports. These new advanced reports allow you to view your spending/saving per account and category for each day or weekly average for a given month. You can also compare one month with another one to see how your spending/saving habits might have changed over time.
To access these new reports, you must be a premium member and then go to the Reports page. There will be a new link at the top of the page that says Advanced. Simply click on that and you will be taken to the new reports.
To use the new reports, select whether you want to view deposits or withdrawals and what account or category you want. Then you select the month you want to view and an optional month to compare with.
