Budget totals and column width

Postby nicolleen » 25 May 2011, 02:34

Hi,

still enjoying this great software, easy to use, simplistic and very efficient!

What I'm still missing is two things:

- I know it's been mentioned before. There are lots of regular payments or income records, that don't happen monthly but bimonthly or quaterly or every 6 months, 12 months etc.
It would be great to be able to view the budget not only for one month, but for different periods of times too, like 2 months, 3 months, 6 months and yearly.

- The descriptive text to every record ("notes") is always cut off and therefore not really legible. This is no problem, because I can adjust the column width. But unfortunately, the programme doesn't remember this. So every single time I open the programme or even simply change view I have to re-adjust column width to this end.
It would be great if there was a feature that the programme remembers my column settings!

Thanks,
nicolleen

Hi nicolleen,
There is some work being done to add reporting to Finance Explorer. This will allow you to see whatever range of transactions/budget you would like. This feature is still in the research phase so it will be a little while before it's released.

As for column widths, that will be added in the next few weeks.

Thanks for the great feedback.

All the best,
Metalogic

Hi nicolleen,
You will be happy to know that starting with Finance Explorer 5.2.0, the column widths are remembered as you change views. They are not remembered after the program closes yet but that will come soon as well.

Keep the great feedback coming!

Enjoy!

Hi!

Sorry, took a baby break... Back on my computer, just seen in the update news that you added this feature, actually I wanted to say thanks and that I find it very nice, that you posted here too! But being me and a nuisance, it seems I can't get this feature to work! When I switch from one month to another and back, the column width has gone back to default, what did I get wrong? Sorry to bother again...

best regards,
niki

Hi niki,
Congratulations on the baby!

About the issue you reported, you didn't do anything wrong, rather, you found a legitimate bug. The column widths are preserved as you go from view to view (for example change from one account to another) but they are not preserved when you change the month/year. Oops!

This will be fixed with the next release.

All the best!
