I'm new to YNAB. What I'm finding frustrating the handling pending transactions. My transactions are pending on my credit card for about three days. Since they are not in YNAB, I don't know the current balance in my spending categories. If I enter them in YNAB and there is a discrepancy in the date or amount, it loads the duplicate transaction and I have to hunt down the problem.
How are people handing pending transactions?
Hi Steel Blue Hammerhead !
We suggest manually entering pending transactions, so that your budget is always up to date. As long as the amount is the same and the dates are within 10 days of each other, YNAB will automatically match them for you. If the amounts are off, you can also manually match an imported transaction with one you entered to get rid of the duplicate.
