How to add events for possible money in or money out?

  1. Select Money in if the event is income, or Money out if it’s an expense.

  2. Give the event a name and enter an amount, then select Continue.

  3. Select the date when the event will occur.

  4. When you’re done, select Save.

To edit or delete an event:
