Can't figure out how to upgrade
I have YNAB 4 on my Mac. It is version 4.3.353. I see no option to upgrade/update from the File menu, nor is a newer version available for download from the Apple App Store. Can someone advise on how I can begin using the new version without having to rebuild everything from scratch? Thanks.
Sorry, wish I could help you. To the best of my knowledge there is no option to update without rebuilding everything. Some people have attempted to migrate data but it does not migrate well. I had to rebuild everything. The new YNAB handles so many things differently I don't see how migrating could work well. Is a fresh start that bad? It wasn't for me.
For me, it was worth rebuilding.
Are you talking about upgrading YNAB4 to the latest sub-version, (4.3.855) or migrating to the new YNAB, which is a web-based subscription? If the former:
if the latter, use the Migrate to the new YNAB option on the File menu. I migrated with only a few problems, mostly relating to scheduled transactions.
I don't get a "Migrate..." option in my app, so I'm thinking I'm too far behind to upgrade to even the legacy version at this point. The software was never particularly intuitive and with the subscription version at a steep $84 a year I'm going to look around for alternatives. Thanks for the replies!
