Hey, all! I know I’m not the only YNAB (You Need a Budget) user who’s also a Beeminder user. Daniel has given me the go-ahead to make this post as a way to collect suggestions for integrating Beeminder with the newly released YNAB API.
My own YNAB goals, all of which are currently manual, but which I’d love to turn automatic:
- A do-more of reconciling my accounts X times per week
- A reverse odometer (cumulative do-less that resets every month) for spending in my “lunch” category
- A do-less of categories I have to WAM (move money from a different category to cover overspending) per reconciliation
- A do-more to update my YNAB forum journal (I imagine this probably doesn’t connect to the app’s API, so it might have to stay manual)
I also have a do-less “delivery” goal that I update manually whenever I get takeout or delivery (and I’ve recently revised it to be triggered when I get lunch out or go out to eat in a restaurant as well), which could probably be automated as well, by triggering whenever there was a new transaction in my “delivery”, “lunch”, or “restaurant” categories, though I imagine that would probably be a bit more complex to set up.
What YNAB-Beeminder integrations would y’all like to have?
