How do I see category spending in iOS client?
Today I was about out of gas, so I stopped at a gas station, filled up, and bought a car wash. In the car wash tunnel I pulled out my iPhone to record the transaction. After recording, it was clear that I had spent about $200 more on fuel this month than I had expected. In fact, I thought I had spent about $200 in the past few days, which seemed wrong. Did I or my spouse misrecord a recent large transaction, such as groceries?
I tried and tried to have the app tell me where I spent all of that fuel money. On YNAB4 it was as simple as clicking the budget balance for a category, but doing so in nYNAB only resulted in the app cajoling me to cover the budget shortfall. Yes, I will cover the shortfall later, but right now, in the car wash tunnel, all I want to know is how I spent all of that money.
Is there some secret to looking at the category transactions on the iOS client?
Hey Sea Green Transistor !
Sorry for the run around there! To see the spending in that category, tap on the category and then tap on the Details button. On that page, there's an Activity for JAN [this changes depending on the month] - tap there and all of the transactions for that month in that category will be listed.
Give that a try and let me know if it gives you any trouble!
