Additional Home Page Thermometer Graphs/Bars

The thermometers are one of MD's best features. Their space-efficient overview with drill-down capability is really fantastic. How about adding more to the Home Page preferences. For instance, income/expense/networth, bank account transactions pending/cleared/all, income categories only, expense categories only, invesment account value of stocks/bonds/CD's etc. All these would be settable like the existing income/expense thermo for time periods and as many as desired allowed to be added to the Home Page.

Better yet would be to have a thermometer graph/bar template that could be user configured instances ( for account/category or type or child) when added to the home page preference panes, similar to memorized reports and charts.

    Hi avp2

    That sounds like a fine idea. I have created a suggestion ticket based this post and attached it to this case. Posts in this case will count as votes for the ticket.

    I did not get my typing right in the last part of my post; it should have been:

    "Better yet would be to have a thermometer graph/bar template of which multiple, user configured (for account/category or type or child) instances could be added to the home page preference panes, similar to memorized reports and charts."

    I guess most understood what I was trying to say though. Anyway, looking forward to it.

    I'd also like to add my vote. I'd really like to see 2 new charts/graphs added to the Home Page. The 2 that I have in mind are the following:

    1. Networth.
    2. Income versus Expense.

    I use these two graphs on a regular basis to track my progress/status. I would love to have these on the Home Page rather than having to click on separate report pages.

    Thank you
