Unfortunately we were not able to come up (with help of our users) with a better visual cue than the one currently in place – i.e. the future timeline graph view. We still welcome any suggestions, but as it stands this is how Cash Cast has been designed for this primary feature from the start:
How much we can spend each day to avoid deficit is closely related to the timeframe in question. For just today it’s your account balance but on an annual basis this would be essentially the minimum account (category) balance visible on the graph for the entire year of forecast. This is true for any timeline 30 days, 90 days or 3 years. It all depends on when you need to spend the money and how you can balance your budget afterwards if it works only within a shorter timeframe but not longterm.
Additionally, Cash Cast allows for a quick single transaction to be set just to see how it impacts up to the 3 years of available forecasts. It can always be removed subsequently with just a swipe if it does not pan out.
We are open to any ideas you may have how to make this more useful or user friendly for a simple “scenario” situation.
