Sum totals for transactions
Save yourself a trip to the calculator by using the sum total feature on the Transactions page.
Located in the top right of the Transactions page, PocketSmith will display the sum total of the transactions listed. If you selected some of the transactions, the total displayed will be based on those transactions.

- Transactions selected
Click on the value to see the sum, total in, and total out of the selected transactions.
Transactions totals with Multi-currency enabled
If you have multi-currency enabled, the Transactions total will display differently depending on whether you have chosen to 'show balances in base currency instead of native' or not.
Show balances in
If you have chosen to display your multi-currency account balances in their native currencies, you'll see the totals for each currency displayed separately.
- Show balances in base currency enabled:
If you've chosen to 'show balances in base currency instead of native', your transactions will be converted to your base currency using the current exchange rate.
If ' Show transactions in base currency' is enabled but PocketSmith isn't able to get an exchange rate for a transaction that is included the total, it will safely fall back to show in separate currencies.
Graphs and charts
Choose from a line graph, pie chart, or transactions histogram view to analyze your transactions.
- Line graph
The line graph shows the balances of your accounts over a period of time, based on the accounts in the current search criteria.
The date range of the Transactions page line graph cannot be extended into the future. To see your forecast balances, head to the Calendar
- Pie chart
The pie chart shows a breakdown of the categories based on the current search criteria. For detail on using the pie chart check out: Transactions pie chart
- Transactions histogram
The transactions histogram shows the amount of income and/or expense transactions based on the current search results. Displayed as a bar graph, data can be broken down into daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly periods over the date range selected.
