Social Networking of Money!

Posted on 01 January 2011 by Vikram

With the start of a new year we are happy to announce our most exciting feature called the “Social Networking of Money”.

So what do we mean by social networking of money?

Imagine you go out with your friends and share some drinks. One person pays for it and others are to pay back later. We have all been there, done that – it gets increasingly harder to followup with friends on the money they owe you. Here is how Track Every Coin makes it simple for you and your friend…

Step 1:

After you login to your account, click on “Contacts” tab on the right corner of the screen (just below today’s date)

Step 2:

In the contacts tab, add your contact by adding his/her name and email address…

On clicking “Add”, the system will add your friend and send an invite automatically if the “Send an invite” is selected.

After adding your friend, he/she is added to your contacts list…

The “invite” button on the grid disappears after your friend has accepted the invitation. If your contact has not accepted the invite yet, you can send a reminder by clicking on the “Invite” button.

Step 3:

Upon adding someone in your network, you can quickly share expense against them…

After you share the expense, an email is automatically sent out to the person you shared the expense with. The expense shows up under his/her “I Owe” block and you can track it under your “Who owes me” block.

Who owes me

This networking feature is a hassle free way of sharing expenses with friends.

So now with Track Every Coin, you can not only track your own expenses but also split bills with friends.

How to effectively use Bill reminders?

Posted on 24 December 2010 by Vikram

When we launched Track Every Coin’s Dashboard, we also launched out bill reminder feature. In this blog post we will explain how our bill reminder feature is different and how to make best use of it.

Two most important feature in bill reminders are:

  1. Be able to add recurring reminders (Eg: Weekly, Bi-Weekly, Monthly, Yearly)
  2. Know all your future bill reminders

To be very effective in bill payments and not forget the due date, you need to add all your bills with the payment dates as a couple of days before the actual due date. Make sure you select the frequency so that you dont have to do this ever!

Eg:

  • Electricity bill -> Make sure you select monthly.
  • Car insurance -> Make sure you select yearly and forget about it!

Once you have added all your bills, we will send you an email reminder when the bill date has approached.

After you have paid your bill, make sure to mark the bill as paid. This will help you keep your list clean and it will automatically add future bills.

Eg:

Consider the case where we have to pay our Car insurance premium every year.

After you have paid your bill, hover your mouse on the reminder and click on the “tick” mark. This will give you two options:

You can fill the amount and add the bill to your expense on a click of a button or just mark the bill reminder as complete.

When you click on either one of the button, the current reminder is removed and the future reminder is added. In this case, the car insurance premium is due once a year. It will be added for the next year so that you don’t forget the next payment.

Note: the car insurance is now added for the next year and it is the last recurring bill on the list!

Consider another example: Say you have to pay your phone bill and you have added it as a monthly recurring bill reminder

Once you have paid your phone bill and you mark it as complete, it is automatically added to the next month and it is shown in the list…

When the next month’s bill date approaches, we will send you an email reminder!

This way you will never lose track of your bills and at the same time you are aware of all your future bill payments.

Go ahead and make the best use of the bill reminder feature of Track Every Coin.

Let us not miss any bill payments starting 2011!

Wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in Advance!

Power of search – Track Every Coin

Posted on 15 October 2010 by Vikram

Track Every Coin now has “search” feature implemented. We are really excited about this feature as we think this is one of the most powerful feature and will help our customers to a great extent!

Let me demonstrate how search feature helps us understand our expenditure pattern.

Our “search” feature searches through the description or the category. You can first select the date range where you would like to search, and enter  a search string.

For instance, if you want to find out how much you spent on food this month, select the month in our date range selector and hit go, now type ‘food’ in the search field and hit go. The grid is updated with all items pertaining to food and the total of the grid is shown above it.

For a selected date range, you can perform search multiple times. Search results are cleared by either hitting go on the date range or clearing the search and hitting go.

Let me take another example

In case you want to know how much you spent on grocery last quarter, it is simple – just select the last quarter date range and hit go. Now you search for grocery!

What is really cool is… you can know how much do you spend on; lets say “Pizza” in the whole year!

Just select the current year and search for pizza!

Wow! Just made me realize I really need to cut down on Pizzas!

Finally here is my favorite. We had been on a trip to Srilanka this year. To find out how much we spent on the whole trip, I just had to select current year and search for the key word Srilanka.

A small tip that can come handy is that you may want to keep in mind is to use keywords based on which you would like to fetch the data at a later date. For example, prefixing the name of the place for expenses on the trip like “srilanka”

Next time I take a vacation I know how much I need! 😉

Hope you like the search feature as much as I did!
