Change the way Money uses your information to forecast cash flow

By default, Money forecasts cash flow based on business accounts receivable and payable, Advanced Budget information (if you've created an Advanced Budget), past transactions (if you haven't created an Advanced Budget), and scheduled bills and deposits.

To change the way Money uses this information to forecast your cash flow:
  1. Go to the Forecast your cash flow page.
  2. In the left pane, under Common tasks, click Change cash flow settings.
  3. Make the changes you want, and then click Done.


Your cash flow forecast will be most accurate if it's based on information you keep up to date. So, if you don't update your budget regularly, base your forecast on your actual spending. To do this, select Amounts calculated from past trends under For cash flow forecasting.
