Back when YNAB was just a spreadsheet, we only had one developer…and that was just our CEO/Founder, Jesse, creating fancy formulas and the sweetest macros Clippy’s eyes had ever beheld. But nowadays, we have dozens of developers and product designers.
In today’s release, one of our full stack devs, Kyle, got to flex his full stack dev chops (can one “flex” a chop?) outside of his normally front end world. Kyle fixed things so that, now, when creating an account for a credit card, if a user plans to pay a specific amount each month, YNAB will create a Monthly goal instead of a By Date goal. Here was the first review item that got checked off to complete this fix:
We also shipped a fix to the running balance feature that we released a few months ago. On an account with a large number of transactions with the same date, moving one of those transactions to the future (to make it a scheduled transaction) was breaking the running balances calculation. But we fixed this issue!…Hey YNABers, is your balance running? After this fix, you might want to go catch it! *rimshot*
