Do you know what the daily balance is and how it is calculated? This balance is considered to be one of the most important for many of our users, so nothing better than understanding how it works so that you can take full advantage of it, don't you agree?
Since it is one of the most specific balances of Mobills, telling you how much you have on a given day, some users end up not understanding how it is made and start to think that it is being calculated incorrectly. It is calculated differently on two occasions, when looking at the future and when looking at the past, I will explain this difference in calculation.
Understanding the past daily balance
When looking at the daily balance for the past, the releases that are considered are only those paid, as we must agree that if some movements were pending, they do not affect your balance, since in a way, this money did not "come from your pocket ". Basically, the calculation made for the past is as follows:
Daily Balance = Balance of the previous day - Transactions made during the day
Let's check the image below:
See that the balance of the day 17/07 is repeated, because the "Others" expense is pending, the balance on this day will be repeated beacuse on this day, nothing was spent.
Understanding the future balance
Looking to future calculations, we need to understand that it will be a forecast, so we must agree that all entries that are registered will be considered in the calculation. Obviously, these launches will be pending since in Mobills it is not possible to effect releases in the future.
Therefore, the calculation will be made with the following formula:
Daily Balance = Balance of the previous day - Transactions of the current day
Important: We still don't have the daily balance functionality for the future in Mobills Web, we are developing it and soon we will have this new feature.
