The Net Worth Linechart can be modified to show a crude cashflow forecast. First de-select Assets and Liabilities to show only the Net Worth line. Then select only the relevant accounts (current account in my case). This graph shows all the transactions entered for that account, which by default doesn't include future scheduled transactions. However, if you set your scheduled transactions to be entered a few days before the actual transaction date, once they show up in the transaction register, they'll be reflected in the graph, giving a future cashflow. Set the step size to 'Day' and you get a reasonable approximation of MS Money's cashflow feature.
Ideally, of course, the Net Worth Linechart should show future values as a default. Also, it would be nice to have the date options start from 'Today' and end in after a certain duration rather than the current 'Start of month' - 'End of month' etc.
I think this also shows that this feature could possibly be implemented as a report. Anyone willing to give it a go?
