    Please fix the "In/Out/What's Left" chart on the home screen, or allow more customization. I cannot remove credit card accounts from the spending graph so it double counts inflows & outflows -- I just want to see checking & savings transactions. The account balances "profit" bar doesn't show the net change, it shows the total balance for all accounts. I just want some way to show monthly inflows, outflows, and difference (positive or negative cashflow) for my "cash" bank accounts. This shouldn't be hard!

    Agree - the In/Out/ Whats Left is so completely wrong it is misleading. (Removed-Rant) Ignores all the income items and has only some of the expenses so it's no use!

    This is so annoying! The balance shown does not include transactions from today (even though the detail when you click on "See Projected Balances" does include them)...and apparently the balance is including an online repeated transaction that I deleted months ago! This should be easy to check! If it is supposed to be what's left before next income, it should be equal to the balance in my checking account before my next paycheck. If that doesn't tie, it's wrong. This is not a project enhancement. This is a bug that needs to be fixed! Just do it!

    Projected balance also includes a duplicate expense from the wrong checking account. Can't delete it. Can see it anywhere other than there. Like why? This app has gone downhill since it became a subscription service. It might be time to start looking for other options.

    I managed several accounts yet I would like to track certain accounts. Can the "In/Out/What's Left" be set up to track groups or specific accounts and expenditures? Even the ability to track different groups would be an excellent tool for Quicken.

    For clarification, I managed the family accounts and my children's accounts. I would like the "In/Out/What's Left" to focus on the family accounts and not the children's accounts.

    I love the concept of this tool. Its even is useful broken. But it is way broken. There needs to be a better correlation between the figures presented and your registers and actual transactions.

    Specifics:
    - I have an uncategorized line item as an expense which is clearly a transfer between accounts. There is no way to correct this.
    - If I look back several months, there are uncategorized line items that have zero correlation with any of my various registers. I cannot fix or change these. They may be valid, but I have no way of determining this.

    I just want to say again. I love this tool. Please make it work better.
