Budget Variance report - budget vs actual for Tracking categories

Started by Fletcher FitzGibbon in Feature Requests | Idea

It would be nice to see each of the tracking categories next to their budget figure and the variances, listed across horizontally.

Having to do this in excel is frustrating, and it should be a relatively easy add for Xero to make.
Hey Fletcher, thanks for raising this with us on Xero Community! 😊 As our support team confirmed, it isn’t currently possible to add tracking to the Budget Variance report when viewing the Actual vs Overall Budget in Xero, but for now you can continue exporting to excel as you've been doing.

Great to hear you'd be interested in having this feature in Xero though. We'll keep our eyes on interest here, and if there's any development we'll be back to let you know! 🙂
