Transfers between accounts also shows up as money to be budgeted
I have a transfer from a checking account to a credit card. Both accounts show the inflow and outflow. However, it also shows up in the money to be budgeted as if it is new money instead of a credit card payment. I tried logging out and rebooting. I tried deleting and reentering the transaction but no luck. I still have an erroneous amount to be budgeted.
If you'd like, I can take a look at your budget. To do so, we'll need permission to access your YNAB account.
Permission, once granted, is read-only. This may include filtering, sorting, or hiding/unhiding of transactions and categories if necessary. Know that your budget will be handled with care and will only be seen by our support staff and development staff.
Additionally, we often find it helpful to provide annotated screenshots or video of your budget using a secure service. Any videos or screenshots of your budget are automatically deleted from this service after one month. We may retain selected images securely and internally in order to internally describe and diagnose future issues. If you would rather we don’t use visuals in our response, please let us know.
Other than for these purposes alone, your budget won't be shared in any way.
If you're up for it, simply reply to this email letting us know it's okay to access your account, and the name of the budget we should take a look at. If you have more than one budget and don’t specify a budget name, we’ll take a look at the most recently opened budget. We do not need your email or password.
I can send you a screen-shot from Jing if that is what you mean. I have a transfer from [edited out by Dan at YNAB ] Also I have noticed that the months up to August are now being affected as before the change of each month, the money to be budgeted was always zero. Now some of them are red instead of green and a zero amount. This seems to be happening with credit card accounts, but I am not sure.
Okay, I totaled up all cash in my budget account. I added the Total Available to To Be Budgeted. Cash in accounts equaled Total Available + To Be Budgeted to the penny. As long as that is equal, does that mean that when a transfer between accounts is made and shows up also in To Be Budgted that I can safely move that amount in To Be Budgeted into categories so that To Be Budgted returns to zero?
