One of our biggest goals when developing PearBudget was (and is!) to make budgeting simple. And one of the things that makes most budgeting programs complex is that there’s so much stuff on the screen. So we’ve tucked away features and made the interface as simple as possible. So — yay! — there are gems waiting for you to discover them. But — oh no! — if you don’t know they’re there, you might never look for them (and, then, never discover them!).
So we’re going to start writing a Tip of the Day, showing how to do different things in PearBudget. We’ll be uncovering certain features (like the Go Card!), showing how to do different things (“how do I set up a recurring receipt?”; “how do I export my info?”), and giving tips that are bigger than software (“how do I talk to my partner about money?”).
We’re putting together a list of the things we think you want to hear about, but we’d love to know what you’re interested in finding out about. So … let us know! You can send us a message by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), or on Twitter, or on our just-getting-started Facebook page.
(Speaking of our Facebook page, if you’re the type of person who likes things like that, we’d sure love it if you headed over there and like our page. If not, no worries! We just got it going last week, and are still not totally sure what to do with it, so if you have suggestions, let us know! Should we stop posting to the blog and just make that our blog? Should we make things more interactive with it? We’re open to your thoughts.)
Anyway, right! Tip of the Day! We’re going to start writing them and will probably start publishing them once we have a cache ready to go. Another thing we’d love to know: are there any discoveries you’ve made in PearBudget that you want to share with others? Let us know those things, too!
