I use the checkbox a lot, not only in the Register but also in the Budget...
Normally I select 4 or 5 rows to do some action on them... To unselect them I seem to recall I'd select on the "master" one at the top of the page (same level as the titles), and that would unselect the ones I had chosen... If i clicked again it would select all...
Now when I click the "master" to unselect the few I have selected it first selects all, and I have to make a second click to unselect all...
Has this behavior changed in some recent release or has it never worked as I describe, and it is wishful thinking on my behalf???
Yup, you need two clicks now. I hate it. I'm always paranoid that somehow messing with "all transactions" multiple times is gonna cause some kind of browser/app slowdown or crash. It's happening relatively quickly for me, but I still think it's stupid, especially with a " - " in the box, as if you're about to UNselect.
Hey Annieland Move Light Sound Life Rick Thomas I'm the designer on the Connections, Accounts, and Transactions team here at YNAB. Long time lurker, first time poster. I wanted to let you know that I hear your feedback and would like to improve this once a few things line up on our end.
A bit of info if it’s helpful/interesting. A while back we received some feedback that our checkboxes were not following the W3 standard (spec, example), which wasn't great for customers with accessibility needs. In response, we updated all checkboxes in the app (e.g. budget checkboxes, Manage Payees checkboxes) to follow the standard. We adopted the standard for the right reasons, but I agree it doesn’t feel quite right for our app, yet. However, I’m confident we can get it to a place where we’re following the spec and the interaction feels natural.
Any change like this goes through a research phase on our end. In addition to reading the spec, we looked at a bunch of examples. More often than not we found other apps were complying with the standard, but there were outliers, and Gmail was a big one. It's tough when a giant app like that bucks the trend and creates its own “standard” through sheer scale.
We prepared the Support Specialists for a sizeable amount of customer feedback since this was a (potentially) disruptive behaviour change, but it was shockingly quiet—probably less than one-tenth of the feedback we were expecting (and that's across all platforms we monitor, not just this forum). Other metrics we monitor were not affected either. But that doesn't mean a whole lot if something still feels off.
I imagine we'll be running an experiment with some changes to this in the next little while. If you'd like to give it a try, we'll figure out a way to securely get your email addresses so we know who to include in the experiment!
