Totals in the Inspector

Ever noticed those totals on the right of your budget?

Total budgeted and total activity and total available and total inflows shown in the right-hand sidebar

When you have no categories selected, those tell you the sums of each column, for all categories.

Total Budgeted

This is the sum of the Budgeted amounts for the selected categories (or all categories if none are selected):

The budgeted amounts in all categories which make up the Total Budgeted amount in the sidebarPro Tip: Check your hidden categories (at the bottom of your budget) if you're having trouble getting the numbers to line up. 

Total Activity

This is the sum of the Activity amounts for the selected categories (or all categories if none are selected): 

The Activity amounts in all categories which make up the Total Activity amount in the sidebar

Total Available

This is the sum of the Available amounts for the selected categories (or all categories if none are selected):

The Available amounts in all categories which make up the Total Available amount in the sidebarPro Tip: This includes money that is set aside for credit card payments

Total Inflows

This is the sum of all transactions in cash, checking, and savings accounts categorized as Inflow: To be Budgeted in the current month. This line is only shown when no categories are selected. 

A $1500 inflow transaction and a $250 inflow transaction both selected resulting in a $1750 Selected Total amountPro Tip: This may include outflows that have the Inflow: To be Budgeted category, including balance adjustments made throughout the month -- but not inflows in negative-balance credit card accounts.

Viewing Selected Categories:

When you have multiple categories selected, you'll see a summary displayed in a panel on the right-hand side:

the sidebar has changed to reflect only the totals of the 4 currently selected categories in the budget

This can be a great way to view data about a single Category Group, a few common spending categories, or any set of categories you want to view quickly together. You can always return to the month overview by de-selecting the categories, either individually or all at once by clicking the " - " symbol on the top left side of your budget. When there aren't any specific categories selected, the totals in the inspector represent all the categories in your budget.

You can also use the Quick Budget options with multiple categories selected to quickly adjust your budget throughout the month!
