Use the Save-Up Tracker to help you save your money for a purchase. Enter a goal name, how much you want to save and which account you want the funds to come from. You can also optionally add a deadline and account percentage options to each goal. Hover over the progress indicator for more details about your goal.You can find the Save-Up Tracker by clicking on Tools at the top of the page, then click on the Save-Up Tracker link.
If you're saving up for something and want to keep track of when you can afford it, you can add that item to the Save-Up Tracker.
You can set how much the item costs and then use a percentage of your account balances to determine if you can afford to purchase that item.A good example would be if you are saving up for a new DSLR camera which costs $3,500, but only feel comfortable buying it when you have $10,000 in your Savings account, you can set a goal so when 35% of your Savings balance meets or exceeds $3,500 you will be alerted.
To add a new goal, click on the blue
+ Add Saving Goal button at the top of the Save-Up Tracker. When you do, a form will appear where you can enter the details of the goal.
The fields in the Add Goal form are explained in the table below.

The list of goals shows the goal name, account, amount, deadline and progress as well as options to edit or delete the goal.
Each goal will have a color associated with it based on the status and progress of the goal. The various colors are explained in the table below.

Edit link for the appropriate goal.
Next, click on the
