I just started ynab (again) and my forst pay was direct deposited into my checking account. How long does it take to show up in YNAB? Thank you

  • It will be in ynab once it clears. You should manually enter it so you can budget it

  • And set the payment up as a recurring transaction, so you don't have to manually do it every month, or 2 weeks,   Or each 15th and end of month... or however often you get paid.  To set up repeating transactions, select the transaction, and click on the date.  A calendar will pop up, and at the bottom of the calendar is a button that will allow you to select repeating transactions.  choose the appropriate  repeating criteria, and it will show up each payday.  

    If you're not salary, or have other reasons for inconsistent amounts being deposited, you'll probably have to adjust the amount each time, but at least you don't have to create a new transaction each time.

      Bruce You can set a paycheck as a recurring payment? It is different every time but not by much so I could adjust it each time

      Steel Blue Mermaid Can also make the recurring transaction for $0 as a placeholder.

    I used to do that but now I prefer to leave the value in and add a note to the memo and adjust the balance if it changes from paycheck to paycheck when I have that info. I normally get two paychecks a month so for example this month, the first paycheck had a note of 12:1 and the second one 12:2 in the scheduler. Next month I get three so it will be 1:1, 1:2, and 1:3.
