[feature request] Add search filter to Manage Payees

I really like the new manage payees feature but I have so many payee entries in the list that it can be frustrating to find the few I'm interested in. Having an input that filters the list as I type would make managing these much faster. Since the manage payees feature was introduced after I had been using ynab for a while, the list is large and I clean up the payees as new transactions come in.

    Hey  Jason , thanks for this! Search could definitely speed things up. I'll get this to our design team as they regularly review feature requests. 

    I'm also going to move this over to the App Functions channel, as it's less a bug and more a feature request.

  • I would also very much like this feature for the same reasons the OP expressed.

  • Also, review how YNAB selects a payee by default when selecting the manage payees option. I sometimes find that a payee is selected but the list doesn't move to focus on that single payee. It's easy to notice that one is selected, resulting in errors when editing what you think is a different one.

  • +1. I tried to clean up my list of payees, however not having search makes this super tedious. Would go a long long way!

  • This! It would make the function so much more usable.

  • Hi all!

    Since this post was initially published, we've changed the way we collect feedback. Would you mind filling out the Feature Request form? This goes directly to our development team so you can let them know exactly what you'd like to see going forward! :)

      Faness Done! Thanks for letting me know.

    • Thank you Jason !

      We can't make any promises, but this puts it on the radar of possibilities! :)
