ClearCheckbook Projects: Great for Groups and Classes
1/11/2008 in ClearCheckbook News
This little known feature has been around since about August and was developed specifically for a personal finance course at Purdue University. The Projects feature allows a group of people to manage their ClearCheckbook accounts as usual, but then adds a new kind of report to their navigation.
This new report allows you to view your spending in a set of specified categories with the rest of the group. This is a great way to see how your spending compares to those of your peers. You also don't have to worry about other group members seeing what you've spent your money on. All they can see are group averages compared to their own spending.
If you are interested in setting up a Project with ClearCheckbook, please use the Contact form at the bottom of any page and let us know. This feature is completely free to use and all we need to know is what you would like your project code to be (all users will enter this code when they register) and what categories you would like the project to track.
Since the Project feature is still relatively new and tailored mainly for the needs of one personal finance course, we'd be glad to hear what your opinions are on how we could expand the Projects section to make it even better.
If you're interested in learning more about the Project feature or if you want to give some suggetsions on additions to make to it, please let us know!
