On the page of report "Expense by Month" (/reports/expense-by-month.php) we can or get a report about all envelopes, or only about one per time. It will be very usefull, if there will be an option to select more than one envelope for report.

I would also like the ability to select/deselect multiple envelopes. The "Spending my Month" report is very useful but can be skewed based on different factors such as transferring money to different account (shows up as high spending month), or rent being paid on the 31st of the month vs the 1st...

Hi Yasin - Thanks for adding your feedback! I've updated the notes in our tracker to include this information. To clarify, transfers won't show up in your spending reports. That's because you're only moving money around, not spending it. Hope this helps!

Thanks! That would be a very useful feature.

Also, I said "transfers" but I actually meant movement of money from one bank account (tracked by GoodBudget) to a different one.. I record these transactions as expenses and they show up in my reports. Ideally, that envelope could be removed from the report as it shows spending that wasn't technically spent.

Why not place those accounts in Goodbudget. You can always allocate them to a category so they are kept out of Unallocated.

That's a good idea, Colin! You can always allocate funds to Envelopes so that they are pulled from Unallocated, and so you don't accidentally spend that money.
