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!
