How can I share my budget with my partner?

With Goodbudget, you can sync and share with your Household with your budgeting partners! When you do that, you’ll both be able to add transactions, and make changes to your budget as needed.

Before you can share your Household with someone else, you’ll need to register your Household. If you’ve already done that, you’ll be able to share your budget with your partner by having them login to Goodbudget on their device using the same username / email address and password you created when you registered. And, that’s it!

Register on your phone

On iPhone, register your Household by heading to the More tab and tapping on “Register to Schedule & Sync.” Then enter your desired Household information to create your household.

On Android, head to the Envelopes tab and tap the three dots in the upper-right of the screen to open the overflow menu. Then tap on “Register.” That will take you to the Registration page where you can create your Goodbudget Household.

Already have a Household? No problem.

If you’ve already created a Household on the web, then you can login to that same Household on your phone. Just download the Goodbudget app on your iPhone or Android and login using your existing Household Username or email address and password.

What if I registered on my phone and on the web?

Registering on the web and on your phone creates two separate Households. Choose which one you’d like to keep and login to just that Household.

  • If you want to keep the Household you started on the phone, close the Household you started on the web, then register on the phone.

  • If you want to keep the Household you started on the Web, log out of your current Goodbudget Household on the phone, then login with the Username or email address and password you used on the website.
