Quick Answers

Why are some categories missing from the earning and spending donut chart?

This may be because the category has been set up as a Transfer category, or due to the transactions themselves being marked as transfers.

By default, transfer categories, and transfer transactions are hidden from the earning and spending donut chart. If the missing category should not be set up as a transfer category, you can learn how to edit this here: Editing and deleting categories

If your transactions are not within a transfer category, but have been incorrectly marked as transfers, please get in touch and we can take a look!

Why is one of my expense categories showing as income (or vice versa)?

If one of your expense categories is incorrectly showing in the income section of the earning and spending pie chart it’s likely that the category’s type option has been set incorrectly. To fix this, change the category's type option to No, this is an expense category (any income is a refund).

Similarly, if an income category is showing as an expense, change the category's refund behavior to No, this is an income category (any expenses are deductions).

Why are some of my budgets not showing under ‘Your active budgets’?

This section of the Dashboard shows all of your budgets that have at least one transaction assigned to them during that budget's current budget period.

The period associated with each budget is dependant on the period assigned when creating the budget. Hovering over a category’s budget bar on the Budget page will show the period set for that particular budget and how many days are remaining.
