Multi Scheduler as "Planners" feature suggestion

Post by AlecFasani »

Hi Angeman,

First I'd like to thank you for the excellent and very helpful tool Icompta is.

Since I use it to plan ahead, both my business and my personal life, I'd like to suggest a new feature for your app.

How about adding a new Planner Tool to the Scheduler?

I mean, to plan changes and create new scenarios to my business I change many planned transactions
In the end, I check how balance evolution graphics look to see the results.
From there usually, I must go back to the starting point if I want to test a different scenario.

Well, that's not bad but maybe could be even better.

What if instead of having only one Scheduler I could duplicate and create new ones as, let's call Planner 01, 02, 03...?
In this case, I could make as many changes on the Planners as needed without actually losing the point where I started from my original Scheduler.

Then when we go to Balance Evolution Graphics, we could opt to use the Original Scheduler or any of the Planners instead.

I believe that would be great a great tool to make comparisons and take decisions.

I hope that makes sense.

Kind regards
Alec

You can just duplicate your document using File > Duplicate and modify the scheduler there.

Well, that's what I've been doing.
But then if I import or update any transactions I must do exactly the same for every copy of the document.
When you have multiple accounts that could represent a massive work.

Multiple schedulers on the same document would be much easier but was just an idea anyway.

Cheers

Yeah sorry but that seems much complicated to deal with and I don't think many users besides you would use it.

I understand.
But maybe most people don't consider different scenarios ahead simply because there is no easy way to do it ;-)

Thanks anyway.

Have a great day.
