– Budgeting support
iCash v4 introduces Budgeting, a feature designed to replace cumbersome and
error-prone spreadsheets. Indeed, it is now possible to take advantage of
the data you have been typing in iCash so far in order to create a budget.
iCash budget feature is very user-friendly and straightforward, just adjust
a few parameters, click on the calculate button and you are done. Actually
when you use iCash budgeting feature, there are two ways to set it up. One
is to let iCash look at your history and estimate what the budget should be
and the other way is to assign a number for a specific item. In fact,
accounts and categories are automatically populated so they can be adjusted
manually. In addition, a summary panel displays all the totals per interval
for both your incomes and expenses. You can create as many budgets as
needed and as usual, you can print and export them.
– Overview Panel navigation
We have brought iCash Overview panel to a whole new level giving you the
ability to browse thru types and categories as if you were handling folders
on your desktop. You can double-click a type or category to see its
contents down to account level. You can go back and forth, return to root
view, refresh a view, print or export current view and hide or display
deactivated items. A new navigation toolbar has been placed right above the
viewer. In addition a new pull-down menu lets you jump to a given view by
telling iCash to display a given type or category. This is really handy if
you need to temporally isolate the items you are interested in. Of course
next time you open a document, last view will be restored.
– Overview Panel flat list display
The Overview panel finally offers the possibility to also display flat
lists. In fact, you can now set iCash to show a flat list of accounts from
multiple categories and/or types at once rather than hierarchically
organized as it was done so far. That allows you to easily compare accounts
by sorting them exactly the way you need. Of course, it also allows you to
print what you see on screen so you are no longer limited to default
hierarchically organized lists.
Currency update thru the Internet
If you are connected to the internet, it is now easier than ever to keep
all your currency exchange rates updated. Just open the currency window and
click on the ‘Update Now’ button. All rates will be updated taking the
default currency as the reference. The default currency is the one in bold
on the list. You can easily change it, select any currency, press your
mouse right button (or Cmd+left button) and select the ‘Make Default’ menu.
Once done, don’t forget to click on the ‘Update Now’ button to take the new
currency as the reference and to update all rates accordingly.
– Support for Bar and Pie charts
The Toolbar pie chart icon has finally been honored. Now you can create
both bar and pie charts in addition to default line chart. Line and bar
charts are intended to display the evolution of an account or a group of
accounts over the time whilst the pie chart simply shows ratios. In
layman’s terms it simply allows you to visually compare accounts or
categories of the same type. For example it allows you to know the
proportion of a given expenditure compared to others.
– Colored balance status
Both the general and transaction status lines now use colors to display
positive and negative amounts. Besides it looks pretty it is very likely
many users will discover its utility for the first time. Indeed, that line
offers a quick view of your current situation. Color was a long time
– Enhanced balance report
You can now create a Balance report by category. When selecting ‘Balance
sheet’ you now have three choices, ‘Summarized’, ‘Accounts’ and
‘Categories’. In addition you can create a report at a given date or for a
date range. By choosing a date range you simply ask iCash to calculate the
balance at two different dates and the variation between them. In other
words, you can get for example January 1st and December 31th balances on
the same sheet along with the variation percentage between those two dates.
– Much faster DB engine
We took advantage of this new release to update the SQL engine used by
iCash to the very last version available. All procedures are now much
faster. Besides of that this new version will also allow future
– Deactivated Accounts
Accounts can now be deactivated directly from both the Overview panel and
the account editor window. In addition you can set iCash to hide such
accounts. As a reminder a deactivated account doesn’t appear in pull-down
menus throughout the application so it can no longer be chosen.
– Duplicating or transferring transactions to same days
The transaction duplication/transfert window has been enhanced to allow
transferring or duplicating transactions to a different month keeping each
transaction original day. That lets you for example duplicate/transfert
transactions on march 1, 2 and 5 to april 1, 2 and 5.
