Quicken tasks in ynab
I use quicken to balance my accounts and because it tells me 5 days in advance when a payment is due. I know I can run a balance in ynab but is there anyway to get a notification when a bill is due to be paid?
Somewhat expanding on what Fuzzball Meows said:
When I want to be reminded of something (like to check the exact amount of an automatic payment about to come out or what have you) I set up a transaction with $0 assigned.
For instance, I am doing the debt snowball method and have an account I pay the minimum on right now, but that isn't always the same amount, so I have a "payment" transaction for $0 with a note in the memo line to remind me to check what that exact amount will be, and I can send the rest of my debt snowball money towards my target debt.
I've also heard of people doing this same thing and basically using YNAB as a calendar. For instance, setting a yearly recurring transaction for a wellness exam. I don't do that personally, but I thought it was really creative!
