Payee Name import (Mobil app)
Many of my transactions are imported with an odd prefix before the actual Payee name....see attached image. This becomes a problem in the Mobil App (Android) as I am unable to see who the Payee is. I need to login to my bank or YNAB on a computer to see the name. Does this happen to anyone else? Anything I can do to resolve this?
Orange Robot Oof! Payees can be a maze - I'm sorry you're running into these long ones! I wanted to let you know that at this point, there isn't a way to view more of the payee name in the mobile app - just in the web app, as you mentioned you've been doing!
That said, YNAB will remember the payees your edit on mobile and automatically rename them for future imported transactions – as long as the original payee is an exact match! Additionally, if you're able to enter transactions on mobile as they happen, then the imports will match right up with those - preserving the payee you'd added manually and helping you avoid the dreaded check on your bank's website.
I know those aren't perfect solutions, but I hope they help in the meantime! Our design team is aware of this limitation, and working on improving this, too. Let us know if you have other questions about this - we'll be happy to help however we can!
