Net Income is the result of revenues and gains minus the cost of goods sold and all expenses and losses, in a window of time.
To get your net income in real time, put all Incoming and Outgoing accounts into a cross group Net Income:
On the Balance Sidebar the group Net Income sums the result of all Incoming and Outgoing Accounts in it, getting updated in real-time, upon every transaction posting, for the selected period.
You can slide over months on the period slider above. < Dec 2016 >.
On the left side of the dashboard, you can see your Balance Sheet and Incoming & Outgoing in real-time.
