Bi Weekly Goals

Is there any chance that YNAB will be adding Bi Weekly Goal options instead of only Monthly or weekly?

    • Hey Gray Dragon ! Not that I have much different to say... but wanted to make it official. 馃槈

      Our team is looking closely at feedback on Goals for future updates. We have more up our sleeve! I can't say for sure that a Bi-Monthly option will be added, but if you haven't yet鈥攜our can let our Product team know you'd like to see it by submitting a Feature Request.

  • A frequency of twice per month is a period of half a month = semi-monthly. A frequency of twice per year is a period of half a year = semi-annually. No one has issue with "semi-annually", nor does anyone think a "semicircle" is anything other than half a circle. It's beyond me why so many people cannot extrapolate from year to month and still keep the "half" connotation.

    I actually don't know of anyone who has issues with bi-weekly pay meaning "containing 2 weeks of pay". Just like "bipedal" means having 2 feet, a bicycle has 2 wheels, etc. ("Bi" meaning two, not half.) I applaud Gray Dragon for using bi-monthly to mean a period of two months. 馃憤馃槀

    The one I see abused most frequently is bi-monthly when discussing twice per month. It just doesn't fit the pattern of the other similar words (that are not contentious), most obviously to me because "twice" is a frequency, not a period.

    Obviously, my opinion is in the minority given the pervasive abuse in history (and indeed in the present). It's likely a fools errand to point all this out, but hey, it's been a while since this came up last time. 馃槑

       If that's what he was saying, then why even bring up the question?  You can already set it for every 2 months, 3 months, 4 months...  He's asking twice a month (semi-monthly in your scenario above)  Also not fortnightly.

      Bruce Yes, semi-monthly is what the OP is asking for.

  • And the way to do semi-monthly in YNAB currently is to break it into two transactions/goals. E.g. One on the first and one on the 15th and make each of these monthly.
