How do I understand Expenses in LivePlan?

This part of the dashboard will show you your actual expenses vs expected.

  •  Expenses
    • Hover over “Revenue” drop-down menu 
    • Click “Expense & cost breakdown” under “Top Metrics”
    • Hover over the “Actual Results” box to reveal:
      • Actual / Amount per day
      • Target $ forecasted
    • Next to “Show change in:” select “$” 
    • Scroll to the top and sort columns as desired to identify the largest spending changes against forecast/last period/last year (“Donut” view can be helpful to visualize differences)
    • Note all changes +/- $500
