Order of transactions in the register
I have been a user of YNAB desktop for ages. That has not been updated for a while. I subscribed to YNAB online hoping that my number 1 gripe about the desktop version has been fixed. But no, there's still no option to sort the transactions as they appear in the register the way I want. And what I want is simple: to just sort them by transaction date and the order by which I entered them, instead of the current by date and by amount from smallest (highest negative) to highest.
Who among of you are the same way irritated that when you have a lot of transactions in a day, as you enter transactions they immediately sink among the various transactions for the day and you have to search for them if you want to review for example if it was assigned to the correct category?
🖐 I am! It’s my number 1 gripe about YNAB 4 (still using it) too.
But me and dakinemaui just went back and forth on it recently here:
So I won’t go into it all again, except maybe to say it just seems like common sense to order them by entry time to me.
I don't understand. Why does it matter in which order you entered them? I either enter my charges when I check my bank/credit card accounts (usually daily) in which case I just clear them as I enter them so it doesn't matter what order they appear in my register. Or I enter a small stack of receipts my family members have given me (some probably for several days past, in which case they have already been entered and are only helpful because I now have a way to correctly categorize the charges I've already entered). Those would then just appear randomly regardless of when they had actually taken place.
