Isn't there a difference between the website and the app in the "set" and "add" functions ? On the website "set" just fills the enveloppe up to the budgetted amount and "add" takes into account the previous month balance. It is the other way in the app (at least on my phone ! :D)

Hi Lionel, 

Good question! Both do the same thing on the web and mobile app. However, when 'setting' on mobile, Goodbudget using the Envelope's daily starting balance to determine how much is needed to set the Envelope's balance to your particular number. So, if you 'set' multiple times in the same day, it'll look like it's adding. 

Is that what you're experiencing?

Hi Karisa,

Thanks for your answer. I may have missed an update actually: "Set" function is just taking what's needed from the unallocated to fill the envelope to its value. Or I had never figured this out, because i thought "Set" was considering the previous balance was always 0.

Hi Lionel, 

That's right! When setting, Goodbudget will only take what you need based on your balance to get the new balance to your specified amount.
