Adding account & budgeting doubles

I just added my checking account to YNAB and now it looks like I have double the amount that needs to be budgeted.  Is this because I was doing it manually before?  How do I fix this?  Thanks!

  • Hi Cadet Blue Sidewinder !

    When you added your Checking account did you add it as an account separate from the initial one where you were manually tracking your spending? If so, YNAB is taking your manual account into consideration and the new account you added.

    Instead, you'll want to connect your original manual account to your Checking account - that way it's only counted once.

    If you're on the web app, click on the Edit icon next to the name of your account and the pop up will give you the option to Connect to your bank. Once your original account is connected you can delete the duplicate. 

    If that's not the issue, let me know and we'll go from there! :)
