Weekly Targets on Mobile
Are you paid weekly? Perhaps you prefer to budget for your grocery run each week, rather than once a month? Or maybe you’re trying to cut back your morning drive-thru spending to $10 a week (some mornings you just need a caramel macchiato, right)? Weekly targets are here to help!
A Weekly target is part of the Needed for Spending target family. With this type of target, you can even choose which day you would like your week to rollover.
To see your progress, tap the category name followed by Details. You’ll see your progress broken into the number of weeks in the current month. You can also see your progress for all your categories with a glance in the budget tab, if you have Progress Bars toggled on.
In the first month that the target is created, you won’t be prompted to assign money for weeks that have already passed by the date that you create the target, but as you go through subsequent months, the progress will still show as yellow—underfunded—even if you’ve assigned enough to the category to meet the current week’s target.
This is because the weekly target will continue to prompt you to budget until all weeks in the month are funded.
The number of weeks, and how much you’re asked to budget for the full month, can change based on how many times the selected day of the week occurs in the given month.
Underfunded and Weekly Targets
You can use the Underfunded or Auto-Assign buttons to quickly fund your weekly target in full for the month. Tap on the category, then tap the Auto-Assign or Underfunded to fund that category in full based on the target amount.
