I was wondering if there could be a timeline or update on a few feature requests which have been asked for, for a while. There seems to have been few feature additions in a while just updates to interest rates.
category specific rolling budgets
hide exclude transactions from transactions feed
negative rolling budgets for overspending on particular categories
being able to select clear when making custom category backgrounds after selecting a colour
Price tracking of Bullion as offline accounts selecting weight and price bought
Offline account manual returns tracking to be able to add what the return is for investment accounts
As of now, we are focused on releasing Transunion in Rent Reporting and adding a better savings provider for pots. There is also lots of going on since we are shipping two/three updates per week, but this is not strictly feature related.
As I have mentioned before, 2023 is requiring every company to be profitable and Emma is no exception, so we need to make sure we can release features as well as achieve our main goals.
ps: there will also be an update in terms of savings, investments and net worth coming out next week. We are adding more graphs.
Absolutely agree EMMA needs to be profitable however it has seemed like minor feature additions so far in 2023, be great to have a weekly newsletter or post update on whats coming. Just as an idea keep the community engaged and up to date whats going on. Look forward to seeing the new graphs. I think EMMA has a lot more potential to be the central finance app for many but some more power user features would be great to see coming too
I am not sure how meaningful it is a toggle in settings that say “don’t show excluded transactions in this particular screen”. How would you do it? The vast majority of users is not going to understand that.
If it was me designing i would have a toggle right here with the exclude transaction icon to show what it is. And can tap it to have the description come up for people who dont know what it does but it would be either show or hide excluded transactions
Easy when you setup your emma account a splash screen in the recent section shows the toggle and says “did you know you can hide excluded transactions, try it out” and the default setting is show excluded transactions so if users want to change that they can new users can never use it and nothing changes for them but if they need it they can find the feature easily or remember from setup. Hows that sound
Am pretty sure the current approach (showing excluded transactions in the transactions list) is how the app was originally setup in the early days. Then went through a period of them being hidden from the transactions list. Now back to the original approach.
I do agree it would be good to have this as a user-controlled setting though. I don’t think providing the option would confuse people; the app already has more complex features/concepts that users are expected to get their head around (e.g. left to spend and smart rules).
