Overbudget in April?
« on: March 26, 2018, 12:57:49 PM »
I don't think this is a bug but I am not sure what is going on:

1) Started a new budget/file in February, so I only have 2 months worth of transactions.

2) I have 0 available to budget in both February and March, but April shows a $10 overbudgeted - that I overspent by $10 in March.

3) I double-checked that all transactions have a category.

Are there are any categories in March that have a balance of -$10, like the attached screenshot?

No, that's the weird part.

Every category in March is zero (I spent all that I budgeted) execpt for 2 categories. One has $1.79 left and another has $28.21 left. So I don't know where the -$10 is coming from.

Would you be comfortable with backing up a copy of your budget and emailing it to me or @Alex? Sometimes a budget backup is worth a thousand pictures.

You can also send it to me... hello@financier.io

Make sure that any split transactions are expanded when checking for red.

A split category transaction with $10 not assigned was the culprit.

Thanks for pointing me in that direction. All is well now!

I think its in the backlog somewhere but it would be good to have some sort of notification system to warn users of issues like this after they have entered a transaction with a missing category. This has caught me out a couple of times too.

I totally agree - it's a priority.
