Stage: preparing for alpha testing
A long-awaited feature is to have unspent and/or overspent budget amounts rolled-over from the past into the current period.
After a very long build, we have created a working group on Reddit at https://www.reddit.com/r/PocketSmithRollover/. Join us in this group if you want to find out more details about our implementation of rollover budgets.
Stage: in beta
You will be able to add, edit, or remove a selection of different widgets on your dashboard. You will also be able to have multiple dashboards that can be customised to view different aspects of your PocketSmith account.
Users that have enabled beta features can now switch to the new dashboard to try it out. We will sending surveys to these users over the next weeks for feedback, as we work towards a beta for all users.
Improved Income & Expense statement
Stage: being designed
We are making improvements to the Income & Expense statement, including bringing the functionality of the Cashflows statement into it. You will be able to compare different periods and save settings for easy switching between the different reports you need. We will also be adding better support for sub-categories.
Rebuilding bank feed systems
We're building a brand new system for bringing transaction bank feeds into PocketSmith. This will allow us to connect to the latest APIs that Yodlee offer, and plug-in other bank feed sources more easily too. This is a large project and we've made very significant progress so far, but still has a fair way to go.
Updated transaction search interface
We've found that while the accordion-style of search form performed well functionally, it was often more complex visually than it needed to be, especially if you're only searching for one or two criteria. We're looking to simplify and improve the overall experience here. Stay tuned!
Safe balance out of beta
Safe balance was released into beta over 4 years ago and has been used by a keen group of users to find out how much they can spend today. There have however been a few bugs and user interface quirks that have remained unfixed.
This is changing - with the impending release of rollover budgets, safe balance will be more useful now than ever. We're planning the work that needs to be completed, both from a user interface point of view, as well as fixing up bugs and oversights (such as a lack of multi-currency support).
Multi-currency out of beta
We are working through the remaining additions needed to complete multi-currency support within PocketSmith. Most of these are small changes but the biggest of these is the support of currencies that don't have two decimal places. Adding improved decimal place support is a really big task so it will probably take awhile before it is released.
Trends data for budgets
We are adding trends data for budget categories. This will allow you to see the past details for this budget, in a similar way to the Trends page on the web.
