How does Budget Trackers work?
Budget trackers are currently designed to show you how much you spend and receive for a set of tags that you decide. That means that the value you see next to the budget tracker is the difference between how much you spend and how much you receive. Incoming transactions are included to handle scenarios such as refunds or shared expenses.
Let's run through an example to better understand. Say you set up a budget to track how much you eat out. You add the tags that will be counted in this budget. During a dinner out with a friend, you spend £50 on dinner and your friend sends you £25 for his half of the bill.
In this scenario, your budget should work out as:
You spent = £50
You received = £25
Your budget says = Spent £25
So why does my budget tracker reflect £0?
If we apply the same logic that your budget can never be a negative number and you see it reflecting as £0, what is happening is that your incoming transactions tagged under that particular budget is more than your outgoing transactions.
