Whether you’re curious about how credit cards are handled in YNAB or if you’re looking for the best way to do a Fresh Start, we want you to find the information you’re looking for when you need it.

Remember how Clippy used to follow you around in late 90’s Microsoft Office products asking you if you know what a pivot table is?

Today’s release adds Beacon to the “My Account” pages. Beacon is now there to help whenever you need it inside of the YNAB web app. Go away, Clippy!
