This page explains budget dates, how you can change them and what we are looking to do in the future.
Determining Budget Dates
Do you see the picture below? See the Start of next budget button? So, to keep things simple we make all your budgets run across the same time period. So whether you want to calculate spend every week, 4 weeks or every month we leave that up to you. You are also able to select the start date of the next budget.
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 IOS
At present, it is only possible to view the last calendar month and current calendar month on the mobile version of Money Dashboard, 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 pie chart on the Dashboard.
