How do I update my paycheck / income schedule?

To update income that you have already scheduled, go to your Activity tab (the second tab over) and select a future instance of your upcoming income event. 

You'll be able to edit that income schedule directly on that screen, just be sure to tap the "Update Income" button at the bottom of the screen to save your changes. 

To schedule additional income events, tap on a previous instance of that income (for example, your last paycheck) and tap on the "Repeats Every" field to create a new event. 

Note: Sweep uses your income schedule to determine how much to automatically save for all your bills. Updating your income schedule will automatically re-adjust your bill buckets.

    My bank account is a joint account. I'm paid on one schedule and my husband is paid on another. How do I set up his? He's paid once a month. I'm paid twice a month. Not exactly every two weeks but that was the closest I saw on what to select. Just trying to get this correct.

    Hi Trina,

    To set a semi-monthly schedule, you can select 'half-month' from the 'repeats every' selector.

    Then, for your husband's income, you can create another recurring schedule for income directly from his last paycheck in the Activity view. Tap on the entry, then on the 'repeats every' field to set it up.

    Shoot us a note at support@sweep.co if you're still having trouble getting it set up.

    I have scheduled paychecks from the office, but also unexpected paychecks for freelance. I cant put 1 time payment. This confused me because if the algorithm says save X or the upcoming bills appear like I won't make it to pay because the paychecks are not enough then how i make this work if i cant add all the non scheduled payments I recive? Thnx

    Hi Tane, Drop us a note at support@sweep.co for a more personalized response, but Sweep's algorithm uses the cash that you have in the bank to figure out just how much you'd need. We don't yet support one time events (but it's coming!) and we use your income schedule to figure out just how much you should have set aside for your bills.
