Categories and Transactions

Neontra auto-categorizes your transactions so you can quickly see where your money goes. See how much you have earned and spent in a specified time frame. Our automated cash flow will manage your complex transactions across all your accounts and group them into four expense-type categories

  • Essential - e.g. rent, groceries
  • Non-Essential - e.g. concert tickets, restaurants
  • Savings Contributions - e.g. cash directed to a savings account
  • Debt Payment - e.g. a payment toward a mortgage or car loan

Each Category has a default type. You can change the type by clicking the arrow to the right of the type icon.

Expense Explorer

The Expense Explorer lets you go deeper into your spending, and identify opportunities to save. Expense Types display your expenses by type: Essential, Non-essential, Debt Payments and Savings Contributions. There are three primary visualizations and more will be released shortly:

  • Cumulative Over Time: a running, or cumulative total of your spending
  • Monthly Totals: how much you spend per month
  • Category Size: size comparison, per category

Neontra enables you to build your knowledge and see all your data in place.
