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…

Importing from European banks

👋 Acutal community! It's great to see the new api released and already being documented on the website. Since my bank only supports exporting transactions as csv files, I had to enter them by hand until now. Using the api I could write a small script to automate the import.…

Seeing "Subscribe!" in top right of desktop app, but I am subscribed

Unfortunately, I'm not sure if this is due to v0.0.102 but I'm suddenly seeing "Subscribe!" in the top right. I tried entering my code from January but it said it is invalid. Syncing still works between Desktop and iOS so maybe it's just a UI thing?

Thoughts on moving to reddit?

I wanted to get this discussion going: I want to move this community to reddit. What do you all think about that? I like Spectrum as a lightweight forum but I keep finding myself wanting to either be more like a real-time chat like Slack or more like a fully-featured forum like…

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?
