Incoming Feature: New Goals!

Hi all!

I hope you're having an amazing weekend!

As a number of you have already noticed, we're releasing (long-awaited) new goal types! Sorry for the late announcement, but if you weren't already aware - surprise! ;)

If you haven't seen them just yet, they're on the way! We're slowly rolling the feature out - this way our team can be certain there aren’t any show-stopping issues. The last time we released a feature all at once, the situation got a bit too colorful. 😅

We’re increasing the number steadily, so everyone can expect to have access within the next couple of weeks. In the mean time, you can read up on what to expect from the new goal types in our new Goals Help Doc.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask here or reach out to our support team if your questions are more personal than you’d like to share. If you already have access to this feature, feel free to leave your feedback below! :)

  • Faness  I notice that the documentation still contains the extremely misleading language “set a goal to spend $X by December 24”. That is not possible. You can set the goal for December 1 or January 1, but not December 24. I don’t understand why it is so difficult for your documentation to be clear and accurate.

    • Hi jenmas !

      This was mostly my fault. I put in the request for change late so it won't be viewed until this coming week, but it has been submitted for the team to review!

  • When this got rolled out on my iPhone, there was a link to a video about these goals.  I wasn’t home at the time so didn’t watch it, and now I can’t find it.  Could you post that link here?

  • Faness I understand it is a slow roll-out and as with any new feature some bugs make their way pass QA, but is there an ETA on when the feature will be available for everyone?

    I've been really bummed that I still don't have the new goals yet and really wanted to mess with them (even if it means blowing up my budget/browser/database entry).

      Madkat-Z It's frustrating, isn't it? Hearing all about it and how it works but not having it.

      Superbone I know, right?  Only been a YNAB customer for 10 years and I feel so second-class 🤣🤣.

    • Madkat-Z Superbone Annieland Sorry for the wait! We can't say exactly when everyone will get access to the new goals, but we should be done rolling out the feature in the next couple of weeks.

      Faness It's too bad there's not a list we can sign up to get on these things right away. I'm always the early adopter type.
