Spectrum is alive again! Post a new thread or ask anything quick in here!

A while back we moved to reddit but I've noticed that it's not nearly as easy for people to quickly post a question if they don't already have a reddit account. There's no reason we can't have both communities open and people can use whichever they prefer. Eventually it would be…

Thoughts on moving to reddit?

Emergency fund

Hey guys! How are you supposed to manage your emergency fund in Actual? The money is already in a separate checkings account in my bank, though I'm unsure how to include this in the budget. How do you all manage this?

Syncing

Not able to sync with my iphone. It keeps asking me if I'm on the same network, which I am. Tried it on both the .97 and the Beta version to no avail. Tried reseting the sync, and again to no avail. Any ideas?
