    I'm trying to get certain bills to carry over from month to month but I'm having trouble. I add each bill as recurring for a few months but nothing ever carries over to the next month.

    Haven't had that problem myself, but not to worry, Return7 will surely be along shortly to help you figure it out.

    Hi LSUTigers. I think there's confusion about how recurring works. BillMinder does not (yet?) support an end date for recurring bills. Please go to the bill list and tap on the current month's bill you want to recur. Now tap Recurring, choose Not Recurring and tap Done in the top right. Next, Tap Recurring again, choose 1 month (if you want the bill to recur each month) and tap Done in the top right. Now tap the back button in the to left to go back to the bills list and you should be good to go. You need to do this for each bill in question. The Recurring option is the recurring period, not the length of time the bill should recur for. Hope that helps. :)

    Billminder Question

    I am a bit new to computers ... never mind Billminder. However, I want to adapt Billminder to record rents (recurring of course), due from tenants each month

    Is there a help facility anywhere ?

    Specifically, I havent grasped the 'history' payment view. What does the exclamation and tick icons signify ? When a tenant pays short, why is 'paid' status indicated, (when it still remains partially due) ?

    Thanks .... seems a great app if only I could see the obvious !

    1) or
    2) Exclamation means past due
    3) What do you mean by tick icon? There's a calendar and that means upcoming, if that's what you're referring to.
    4) If they've paid part of the rent, you'll see a checkmark that is partially green. On the bills tab you can tap "Paid" to see the paid portion and "Unpaid" to see the unpaid portion of their rent.

    Please expect slightly longer response times as my wife and I just had our first baby.
