Reports

thumb_IMG_0531_1024 Once you start adding transactions and assigning them to categories, the reports screen can show your balance, cashflow, spending, income and transfers. Reports can be shown per account, per account group or across all accounts using the All button.

There are actually seven screens in total and you can move from one to another by scrolling/swiping to the left and right.

The first screen shows your running end-of-day balance for the selected period, as well as starting and ending balances, the increase or decrease in balance, and the maximum and minimum balances. The dotted line shows the average balance, and the solid red line is either 0 or if you are viewing a report for a single account, your alert limit. Weekends or months are highlighted with the blue bars. You can also tap and hold the graph to display actual end of day balances at different points in time.

To change dates, use the left and right arrows, and to return to the current date, select the date itself. When viewing the current date, selecting the date again lets you choose the report period (daily, weekly, biweekly/fortnightly, monthly, yearly or your own custom dates). For custom dates, use the left and right arrows to set the start and end dates.

On the balance and (non-yearly) cash flow screens (see below), selecting the PDF button will generate a multi-page report for the selected period. This can be exported by email, or printed to an AirPrint-enabled printer.



thumb_IMG_0532_1024 The second screen is a bar chart showing cash flow, with breakdowns of incoming, outgoing and the increase or decrease. When viewing a whole year, you can view daily or monthly averages using the 1/12 button, the latter showing a breakdown per month too.


thumb_IMG_0533_1024 The next five screens show breakdowns of spending and income by category and payee/payer details, and transfers by category, all as pie charts. To drill down into actual transactions, select the List button at the top right.

When viewing transactions, these can be exported in CSV format by email by selecting the CSV button.



Subcategories

If you would like more control over your budgets and reports (see below), subcategories are supported. Simply enter your per-transaction categories in the format “category:subcategory”, e.g. House:Utilities.

The pie charts will roll up the subcategory amounts into their respective categories, and the List view will show you a category and subcategory breakdown.
