I accidentally added 2 of the same scheduled incomes for the same date every month. How do I cancel one of them?

Hi Wendy,

You can cancel a scheduled income by selecting the one you wish to cancel from your transactions list to open the edit screen and then clicking on the delete button. On Web, the delete button will appear as a grey button that says "Delete". On Android it will be a trashcan button in the upper-right, and on iOS it will be a trashcan button at the bottom of the screen.

You can find all of your scheduled transactions (including incomes) at the top of your transactions list. Also, deleting a future scheduled transaction will not affect instances of that transaction that have already posted.

Hope that helps!

Alex, just to clarify, in order to delete all future transactions, don't you have to delete the next "pending" transaction?  My recollection is that if I delete a transaction that is already posted, then it only deletes the one occurrence and not the series, but if I delete a pending (future) occurrence, then it will delete the entire series (not including any transactions that have already posted.  Is that correct?

Hi Wayne,

Thanks for your note -- that is correct. Deleting the pending transaction will cancel all future iterations of the transaction (but none already posted), whereas deleting a posted transaction will delete only that specific iteration and affect no others.

Thanks for confirming.  I have a scheduled quarterly transaction that I thought I had deleted twice, but it keeps showing up in my register the next quarter.  It is so infrequent that I wasn't sure if I had deleted it, but I believe I deleted only the posted transaction and not the next pending transaction.  Nice to know I am not going senile.
