The budget spreadsheet details and settings stored in metadata are:
The information listed above is stored with limited visibility as well: only the add-on can access and modify the metadata. The add-on doesn't allow other add-ons and scripts to access it either, and the add-on does not access metadata other than its own.
- Financial year
- Initial month
- Financial calendar
- Number of accounts
- Budget n Sheets signature
The Developer Metadata was introduced as part of the next feature "Copy your data": this option allows you to select an existing budget spreadsheet in the setup process. At the end of the spreadsheet build, the add-on automatically copies all transactions, accounts, cards, tags, and settings to the new spreadsheet.
