Money Management automatically calculates how long it will take you to pay off each debt, based on your balance, APR and minimum payment. The default setting is to prioritize your debts by Fastest Payoff First, but you can change the priority by clicking on the drop down menu at the top-left corner of the Debts view.
Click on the gear icon in the navigation bar to open Settings, and then click on the Alerts tab. Simple Alerts automatically sets up your alerts with the most popular configuration. Just click on the alert to determine whether it is on or off. Switch to Detailed Alerts if you want to choose which accounts have alerts, what values trigger an alert and how alerts are delivered. If you want to receive alerts via email, you must first verify your email address by clicking on the yellow “Verify your email address to receive alerts” link in the Settings view.
If you want to receive alerts via text, you must first verify your mobile phone number by clicking on the yellow “Verify your mobile number to receive alerts” link in the Settings view.
The Budgets View can help you track and control your spending in select budget categories. You can use budgets to track all of your regular household expenses, or just specific categories that you want to monitor more closely. Budgets are useful for setting and working towards financial goals, or simply being more aware of your spending habits.
There is a special category called “Transfer” for loan payments and transfers that will exclude those transactions from Spending and Budgets.
- A note about payments. All loan payments have two transactions: the negative transaction of money leaving your bank account and the positive transaction of money paid towards the debt, decreasing what you owe. The negative transaction should be categorized as the expense, so your budget will reflect your spending on that category. The positive transaction should be categorized as a transfer, so it does not void the expense of the loan payment.
- For example: The negative transaction of a mortgage payment would be categorized as Home: Mortgage & Rent, and the positive transaction would be categorized as Transfer: Mortgage Payment.
- You can create custom subcategories for all of your loan payments if you wish. A loan payment essentially is a transfer. The money leaves your bank account but you then own that much more of the asset associated with the debt.
- Credit cards are different, because there is no asset associated with the debt. A credit card payment is repayment for money borrowed, on transactions already accounted for in your budget. If you actively use your credit card, payments on that card should be categorized as Transfer: Credit Card Payment.
