Schedule Transactions for Every 30 Days

I have several bills that come out of my account every 30 days instead of on the same date each month (Netflix, phone bill, etc.). There is currently no option to schedule recurring transactions for every 30 days, so I have to manually change the date for these transactions most months. There are currently options to schedule recurring transactions for every four weeks (28 days) and every month (i.e. always on the 15th). I propose adding an option to schedule recurring transactions for every 30 days.

This app has been extremely useful in budgeting my finances. The biggest downside is that this feature has not yet been added. I hope it gets added soon!

Totally support additional flexibility with recurring transaction scheduling.  Please can I add an awkward one to the requests - in the UK we commonly have payments such as our Council Tax (to pay for bins, roads, police etc...) which is traditionally collected 10 months out of the year, with two months (usually February and March) off.  I'm pretty sure I've also got insurance policies that take only 11 monthly payments and give me the last month off!! Crazy, but would be great to add this into any flexible scheduling functionality!! :D

In my own envelope budgeting program from long ago, I offered the choice of the following envelope payout periodicities:  "every X days", "every X weeks", "every X months" or "every X years."  This would cover almost any possible periodicity, but it does require the program to do a bit more complex calculations and to save the user's paycheck frequency as a unique numeric variable to be directly plugged into those specific calculations.  It works very well and takes only a tiny bit more coding.  Just an idea for possible future consideration.
