UPDATE: BudgetPulse Will be Down Tonight as New Site Gets Released
Posted by : Raj | Posted on : Tuesday, November 3, 2009
After months of hard work and developing improvements after speaking with many of the users about their experiences with BudgetPulse and what they would like to see improved to help them manage their money and analyze data better, the time has come. Tonight we are releasing our next release for a brand new BudgetPulse site.
BudgetPulse will be down from 10 PM EST – 12 AM EST tonight on Tues November 3 as we push the release worldwide for everyone.
Here are a few improvements we have made.
1. Complete new homepage design.
2. Ability to in-line edit when performing a search.
3. Ability to view a running balance when looking at a single account.
But the biggest addition is the new Savings Goals feature.
In the application you will see a tab for “Goals.” This section will allow you to set up private or public short or long term savings goals. Now you can set goals for those financial goals you wish to complete like saving for a car, computer, or that vacation you deserve. Track your progress as you save to reach your goal.
Public goals are completely brand new. You can set up a goal and email it out to your family and friends asking for help with contributions to raise money for your goal. They can then directly contribute money through PayPal, Amazon, or by pledging money which can help you grow your funds and save up money to reach your goals.
This could be great for individuals looking for some additional help raising money for their goals or for teams, clubs, non-profit organizations and more who are looking to raise money from multiple people and now will ahve a place to keep all the money organized and budgeted in one place.
This has been a huge request from our users I have spoken with and we are proud to be able to bring it to you
I look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts and feedback on the new release. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter.
