We've given the Budgets tool a complete overhaul both visually and mathematically. The new visual feel of the budgets will make it easier to see how much of your budget has been spent. You can now expand the budget to view more details such as the start/end dates, original budget amount (if rollover is enabled), a percentage of your budget spent in pie format and what duration the budget resets at.
Speaking of duration, we've added five new durations to the budgets. Now, in addition to monthly budgets you can set up weekly, bi-weekly, quarterly, semi-annual and annual budgets. If you create a budget with one of the new durations, you select the start date for that budget and we'll use that as the starting date for when the budget resets.
We also updated the Budget History (both the visual and text history) to be more informative. The visual reports now show your budget history for the last 2 years. The text history has been updated to look more like the new budgets page. The Budgets dashboard gadget also got a visual overhaul and the ability to expand the budget for more information.
We will be working on the mobile apps to bring the new budgeting features to them as well. For now, the mobile optimized website also has these new updates available.
If the budgets look messy, please refresh the browser about 5-10x in a row really quick to force your browser to download the latest CSS files.
On top of re-building the Budgets tool, we've also made several other minor updates and bug fixes including:
- Update: Changing premium membership billing durations
- Bug Fix: Sorting on Search Page
- Bug Fix: Importing QIF files with GBP sign
- Bug Fix: Reports Gadget not showing currency correctly on refresh
As always, if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact us and let us know!
I would be better if the total budget pie showed all budgets instead of spent and remaining. It would be more accurate!
with my currency, and using large number as transaction, the display is not pretty, here is the capture : http://tinypic.com/r/m936sj/6
is there any option can be set to make it smaller and look better? nothing critical though, just a suggestion, thanks for your service :)
Thanks for this wonderful site! It is the first online budgeting one I've stayed with beyond the trial period. I especially like the Android app because it lets me enter purchases as soon as I make them. That means I seldom forget to enter a purchase.
I don't use all of the features, but ClearCheckbook is definitely worth the annual subscription fee, and I will be renewing my subscription.
