Hello,

The spending graph shows me each category and the percentage of my total spending used by each category. Is there an easy way to see what percentage of my salary is being spent on each category?

Thank You

    The percentage of income may be calculated by multiplying the spending by category percentage by the total spending divided by the total income for the time period.

    I suggest exporting an Income/Expense by Category report customized for the desired categories and time period into a spreadsheet which can be further customize to calculate spending by category as a percentage on salary.
