missing something on income?
Can you help me understand what's going on?
first pic is my budget before I imported some transactions. Second one is after I imported some transactions, INCLUDING £400 of income as well as some expenditure - the income isn't showing up in "to be budgetted". And the third I imported another £1000 (invented for testing this out) and now I DO have some money to play with.
Now: I GET that this is basically saying I've overspent, or overbudgetted, so my £400 got absorbed, and actually I need an extra £120 or so to be up to speed and breaking even.
What I don't understand is how I read my figures to know by exactly HOW MUCH I'm short.
Obvs I'm not sticking to the budget and giving more dollars jobs than I have, so I get that. But I do need to be able to see by how much I'm out so I can correct.
Part of this is because I'm self employed, so money comes in when it feels like it and I have to plan for spending in advance otherwise I forget it's coming.
ALSO - has the live chat support feature disappeared? I couldn't find it anywhere, is this the one and only place for support now?
Thanks in advance,
Check for overspent categories in the current month as well as overbudgeting in a future month. You are going to need to fix both, yet they have an impact on each other.
It's not really about knowing how much you need to correct, but rather just taking the corrective actions necessary to fix everything.
