Move multiple categories

Hi... perhaps I'm missing this, but is there a way to move more than one category at a time to a new category group? I've tried selecting multiple categories (checkbox) but that only moves the first selected one when you drag to a new group.

  • Hi Lee Kendall !

    Currently, categories can only be moved one at a time. Would you mind submitting a Feature Request to let our development team know you'd like to see this option? :)

  • This is a weakness of the Move Money tool.  You can edit the budgeted amounts directly, but that opens you up to other weaknesses of the way YNAB manages TBB and budgeting in future months.

      Patzer I don't think this has anything to do with moving the categories themselves to new master categories. 😉

  • I would also like to see this feature added.  I've been using YNAB for about 2.5 years and still find a need to rearrange my budget periodically and continue to "fine tune" my organization.  I'm a micro planner so I have many many budget categories.  Rearranging can be very time consuming.  YNAB Magicians - please consider this option!

    • Ivory Hammerhead Hey, there! Just wanted to mention that with this new app release we have a new thing called Edit Mode on the mobile app. It's the easiest way to rearrange a bunch of categories at once. Though you're still only moving one category at a time, it's as simple as tap, hold and move, which really streamlines the process. :)

      That said, if you're still interested in seeing the option to move multiple categories at once on the web,  please submit a Feature Request to let our design team know! ;)
