I saw it in a video once. there's a little calculation you can do to know how much to bet on the turn to have a comfortable shove on the river.

Can anyone tell me?

all in except one dollar, then on the river you'll always get called

Well it depends on the potsize, but let's say there are 10 units of money in the pot on the flop.
So you bet 7 units into 10, the opponent calls.

On the turn there are 24 (10+7+7), you bet 16 the opponent calls - now there are 56 (24+16+16), so roughgly 5-6 times the pot on the flop.

You invested 23 units already and you can comfortable shove up to 50 in the 56 pot.

What this tells you is, that if you have ~7 times the pot left on the flop you can comfortably get all in by the river.

Now it's up to you to look at other scenarios like 9 times pot left on the flop, 12 times, 15 times etc.
