Hi,

I think It would make Buddi lots more intuitive to have an special report that Shows a forecast graph of net income. Pretty much what you have to do is to propagate scheduled operations to the future and to show that graph. It would also be nice to show a comparison against forecasted budget.

Cheers

    THis has come up before, and while I think that it is a neat idea, I don't know that there is enough information in Buddi to show this well. There are two main problems with this approach:

    1) There is no differentiation in Budget between different frequencies - the chosen frequency is set for the entire budget. This means that you cannot budget for $1000 car insurance every year; instead, you have to manually break it up into ~$80 / month.

    2) There is not a good way to show current expenditure rates, and how these will compare to future rates.

    However, I plan on doing some modifications at some point in the future to make the data model more expandable, and allow more advanced features such as this. I don't have an ETA for this new features yet, though.

    I will move this request to the Report / Graph suggestion section, and once I have the improved data model implemented, I can take a look at this.

    Cheers

    Given the status of Buddi 3.0, this should be possible now. If a third party does not do so first, I can take a look at this when I get a chance.
