I want to see my spending trends by merchant, not by category. For example, I want to see a bar graph of how much we have spent at Amazon each month this year.
The 3rd-party YNAB Toolkit Extension adds additional reports, including spending by Payee. (It has many other VERY useful features as well.)
dakinemaui Thanks. YNAB needs this feature! Would be incredibly simply to integrate. Plus alerts would be welcomed! (e.g., "Looks like you've been spending more on Amazon lately.")
LizardWizard but how would that info help? If I’m spending within my budgeted amounts then it doesn’t really matter if I’m spending that money at amazon, target, or Walmart....
satcook well (A) you just assumed a fact there ("i'm spending w/i my budgeted amounts"); and (B) this info is incredibly helpful for longterm planning. Mint had this feature, and it's quite nice.
Could also search for Payee: Amazon in All Accounts, select each month's transactions to get the totals, and put them in a spreadsheet or online graphing tool.
dakinemaui I already have a job—don't need another one! This is why I pay YNAB.
