One thing I would like to see is to be able to have a bill amount change based off an average of the last 5, 10, or 15 transactions for that bill. For example if my powerbill was $10 in Jan, $20 in Feb, and $10 in March. Money Dance would take an average and make April's payment $13.33. I could of course change the dollar amount for April if I wanted. Having an average would make budgeting alot more accurate especially for utilities and if you are budgeting over a 2 year timeframe. Thanks love the product also.

    just a user,

    This is not exactly what you are asking for, but I use this method to get a 12 month average on utility bills so I can update amounts in my reminders and budgets.

    Just create an additional budget using the Mixed Interval Period, then once created, use the budget calculator built into budget setup to find the averages of expenses over a given period, then you have the average amounts for all the categories.
