This page explains budget dates, how you can change them and what we are looking to do in the future.
Determining Budget Dates
To keep things simple, all budgets run across the same time period and you are able to select the start date of your next budget. At present the supported periods are:
1. Every week
2. Every 4 weeks
3. Every month
We appreciate that greater flexibility and customisation of the budgets' length and start date is something our users are looking for. Our team has received this feedback and hope to bring this functionality across in the future. There isn't a definite timescale for this yet and updates will be posted here as they become available.
Custom Dates Desktop
At present the budget date ranges are set to either weekly, 4 weekly or monthly. We're planning some improvements to the budget feature that should allow greater flexibility with the date range options. We don't have any definite timescales for this at the moment, but we'll keep you updated on progress.
Custom Dates on iOS
At present, it is only possible to view the last calendar month and current calendar month on the mobile version of Money Dashboard Classic, though the budgets can be set to run from any day of the month. We're planning some improvements to this, including greater date range flexibility. In the meantime if you login to the full web version you can set custom date ranges on the similar Spend by Category widget on your Dashboard.
