Ok, I just downloaded this app today, and I must say... "ITS AMAZING"!!!

One thing that I would recommend though would be the ability to fill or refill the envelopes based on a percentage of the income. In my profession income varies greatly, so amount on envelopes should too.

Less monthly income = Less amount in envelope!
More monthly income = More amount in envelope!

Would be a great addition to the app!

Thank you for a great app anyway!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for sharing your input on why this feature would be helpful to you and others as well. It's always helpful for us to be able to better understand where people are coming from when they make requests.

As for the status of this feature, we do not have any current plans to implement this. We understand that it's a longstanding request and that it might seem odd that there's been no movement, but request date and number of requesters are only two of the many factors we take into account when considering updates.

While we certainly consider every request that's made, as we're a small team with limited resources, we try to focus our efforts on the changes that will help out the most people, and this request hasn't yet made it to the top of our long list. That doesn't mean it will never be added to Goodbudget, but we're currently focusing on other development priorities, like bringing our new Debt features to the iOS app. I hope this makes sense.

If you're ever curious what we're working on or what's in the pipeline, check out our Roadmap here.
