moneyGuru Help

This help document is also available in these languages:

moneyGuru is a personal finance management application. With it, you can evaluate your current financial situation so you can make informed (and thus better) financial decisions. Most finance applications have the same goal, but moneyGuru’s difference is in the way it achieves it. Rather than having reports which you have to configure (or find out which pre-configured report is the right one), your important financial data (net worth, profit) is constantly up-to-date and “in your face”. This allows you to constantly make informed decision rather than doing so periodically.

moneyGuru has a very efficient navigation and editing system which allows you to painlessly go around your accounts and transactions and modify them. Keyboard shortcuts are neatly designed and efficient. Values are auto-completed when it makes sense. Date editing uses a special widget that lets you edit dates with the least possible number of keystrokes, regardless of your date format.

moneyGuru is loosely based on the double-entry accounting system, where every account – including income and expenses – is a first class account, not just a category. It allows for a lot of flexibility in finance management strategies (such as cash management).

moneyGuru has very strong support for currencies. Unlike most other applications, currency information in moneyGuru is defined at the amount level rather than the account level. This gives you a lot of flexibility for transactions with multiple currencies.
