I've had a biweekly budget for years.  26 pay periods. Not sure why you can't see that option.

Hi Nicolette, 

By default, you start with a 'Monthly' budget period. But, you can change that to a budget period that matches your pay period.

You can do that while on the website by clicking on Add/Edit on the Envelopes tab (https://www.goodbudget.com/envelope/edit). From there, use the 'Monthly' drop down menu to select your new budget period. Once you've done that, all of your Primary Envelopes will switch to the period you just selected. Be sure to save your changes when you're done. 

To clarify, you'll only be able to track Envelopes that are equal to or longer than your Primary budget period. So, if you choose the 'Every two weeks' option, you won't be able to track 'Weekly' Envelopes as well. 

Hope that helps!
