We hope you never have a problem… but if you do, these tips usually resolve any issues.
Our app enables us to push you “over-the-air” app updates without you needing to update the app through the app store. This allows us to deliver you the latest features as soon as they are ready, but sometimes, this causes a problem. If you are getting a blank white screen or just the app won’t get to the login screen, please try the following:
- Open Android Settings and go to Apps -> CalendarBudget -> Storage.
- Click both buttons “Clear cache” and “Clear data”
Then try re-launching the app. This usually fixes any problems.
This change needs to be made at PayPal in your account.
This article explains how: https://www.paypal.com/us/smarthelp/article/how-do-i-view-or-edit-my-account-information-faq772
If you paid using a credit card only (and didn’t use a PayPal account), I’ll have to cancel your subscription and you can simply re-subscribe with the correct information next time you log in. Don’t worry, your account data will be safe even if we cancel your subscription.
If a budget for a specific month is set, it will override the default budget entry. Once you enter these values and save the Category Setup, the figures on the category sidebar will automatically update, which are the difference between your actual spending and your budget plan.
Note: If you leave a category budget blank, it defaults to $0, and thus the sidebar figures are simply a negative total of all of your spending ($0.00 – actual spending = result).
To switch to a year payment, you’ll first need to cancel your existing subscription (in Setup -> Membership Setup and click Cancel in the grey PayPal section at the top [do not click the Delete My Membership button]).
Don’t worry – canceling your membership subscription does not delete your account.
When you come back to CalendarBudget from PayPal, and again go to Membership Details, now you’ll see the year option. At the moment, it’s not a yearly subscription, just a 1-year payment that you’ll need to make again next year (we’ll give you plenty of warning). The year option is $40, saving you 2 months cost.
If you have any trouble canceling your existing monthly subscription, let us know and we can cancel it for you.
CalendarBudget supports multiple currencies which are set both on Accounts and Categories. If there is a mismatch, (ie, the currency symbol on your categories is “$”, but your account is changed to be “€”, when creating/editing an entry in that account, categories with currency “$” will not show up since you cannot mix $ and €.
Those numbers are the difference between your actual spending in that category versus what you budgeted for that category.
For example, in expense categories, if you budgeted to spend $400 and spend $450, the number would be($50), meaning you have overspent on your budget in this category by $50. In income categories, if you budgeted to obtain $2000 and only got $1900, the number would be ($100), meaning you have not reached your budget goal by $100.
No. While CalendarBudget contains data about your finances, that data gets into CalendarBudget either by manually entering it into CalendarBudget, or by importing transactions that you’ve exported from your online bank account.
If you are still experiencing problems, let us know and we’ll make sure to get you up and running as soon as possible.
