How quickly are transactions posted in the app?

I have used some budgeting apps where transactions are posted immediately (therefor you budget is always current and up to date) and other budgeting apps where the transactions take several days to post. Before creating a goodbudget account, I would like to know how up-to-date this app works!

Hi Bethany,

Generally speaking, when you enter a transaction in Goodbudget, whether on the website version or the mobile apps, it will immediately "go into effect" and update your transaction history, Envelope and Account balances, and other parts of your household.

There is also the option to "schedule" transactions for the future and have them not post and update your balances, etc until a future date, but this is a chosen behavior, and not the default.

Hope that helps!

Just to be clear.  Goodbudget does NOT automatically import transactions.  You must manually enter them individually or import a CSV or OFX file from your financial institution.
