Thanks for your comment.
A few thoughts. CalendarBudget is designed to track all ape ding and auto-calculate balances based on the entries. What you’re suggesting – just updating the account balance – while convenient, results in you, the end user, becoming a little lax in your financial accountability. CalendarBudget would have to create an “adjustment entry” for the difference between the plan and the actual account balance – but where did that money really go? You can categorize it properly or track you money properly. You’ll be left with a bunch of adjustments that do t help you k ow where your money went. For this reason, I am reluctant to add this feature… Once there, it’s too easy to get lazy and abuse it.
Does that help at all?
Is there a reason you don’t use the bank import feature?
