Last Month, This Month
This Month shows all your transactions for the current month, for each account, in a single place. For each account, the report lists any income, any scheduled expenses, and any other expenses. The Other Expenses section of each account helps you understand where your discretionary dollars are going.
Last Month works just like This Month, but for transactions from the previous month.
The Spending Cloud is a visual representation of how much you're spending in different categories and for different tags.
- Each category or tag is shown in word form.
- Bigger categories or tags mean you've spent more money in that area, relative to the whole. Smaller ones mean you've spent less.
- You can mouse over a category or tag to see a total, or click a category or tag to see all the transactions that are assigned to that category or tag.
Spending Over Time
The Spending Over Time report lets you see how your spending is changing over time.
The Tax Schedule report displays any tax schedule line items that you assign to your categories by Form or by Category.
