Setting recurring payments up
I still can't work out how to do it.
Because the instructions are not as specific as I need them and while there are sometimes illustrations, they don't show the browser format/layout. It feels as if there are assumptions going around that people are _only_ using tablets or phones so instructions and illustrations are geared towards them.
Additionally, I've found that when two different pages send the reader to what should be the same page, it actually may not have the first step or illustration on it and thus are not exactly the same in terms of content. How they have the same filename beats me unless they are in different folders.
I am a visual learner, so need the sort of "we are learning how to spell 'Cat' today. here's how we do that. A is the first letter in the alphabet, C is the third letter in the alphabet, and T is the 20th letter. Now rearrange the letters and you get C A T".
Silly example I know, but I hope I'm getting my point across that that the above is different to "we're learning to spell 'Cat'. It has three letters A, C and T, and if you put them in the following order you'll spell 'cat' - CAT" The second example has much less info or explanation than the first.
By all means shoot me down in flames - I'll not see it as I can't work out how to customise the notifications! :)
Hey Maroon Admiral , I'm a visual learner, too! So here's a quick video I made to show you how to enter recurring transactions/payments. Let me know if you have any questions!
*Just a note* If you don't see the greyed out scheduled transaction at the top, then you may want to check your filters in the top right corner of your account register. The link says "Filter" and it's next to the search bar.
[email protected] - I can't see your response. This is EXACTLY why I gave up on YNAB last summer. I was never able to get anyone to help me with this topic. Almost all of my fixed expenses are set up on autopay. I even emailed for help and didn't get any.
Hi! I'm having a hard time describing my issue. I don't understand the accounting side of this - when I set them up, instead of being one transaction they doubled or tripled, because I was transferring between my own accounts and also had budgeted for them. I've tried to get help with this for over a year, surely someone else has had this issue?
