the new home page with quick flows tile Saving a quick flow Quick flows list

Money Manager Pro is one of the most powerful and complete apps for personal finance management which lets you manage all your flows, accounts and cards.

Now a new useful new feature has been added (for both WP8 and WP7.x) to this app: the quick flows

What is a quick flow?

The basic idea is allowing the users to quickly add a particular kind of flows: the ones with a fixed value and a not well defined recurrence.

Let’s explain better with a couple of examples:

Ticket restaurant:
This is an ‘almost recurrent’ flow. Usually used from monday to friday, you have a fixed value but you may not want to set up a schedule for this expense.

Now you have the chance to add this expense with just a couple of tap: open the quick flows list and tap the ‘add’ button. Done!

This is another example of a flow belonging to the ‘almost recurrent’ ones: you may want to always spend the same amount but, for several reasons,

you does not refuel your car on the same day.

Of course there can be a lot of other circumstances you may need this kind of feature…

How can you add a quick flow?

It’s pretty simple! Just open the Add flow page, set up the flow as you do for ‘normal’ flows and save it by using the save quick flow button (take a look to the second picture). Done!

The app saves all flows data except for the date. The flow date will be automatically added when you’ll save the quick flow, using the current date.

Where is now the Documents page?

In this version of the app, the Quick flows tile takes the place of the Documents page. But don’t worry! The page is still present…just in a different place.

Open the Reports page and you’ll find it in front of you, together with the tiles for custom reports.

Let’s now remember the app main features:
