Missing option to manually reassign "Ready to Assign" Money in New Mobile App

Working on getting acclimated to the new YNAB design that was just released. While the web app still offers the ability to manually move "Ready to Assign" money at the top to a specific category (a feature I use all the time because I have a "buffer" category where all new money goes until the next month), the mobile app only lets you auto-assign when you tap that number. So I now have to scroll to my "Income for Next Month" category and enter the amount there.

Any plans to get some parity here so we can still manually assign dollars on the mobile app to a specific category directly from "Ready to Assign" at the top of the app, like we can in the web app? I'd imagine that for anyone using a buffer-type system to get a month ahead, as YNAB has historically espoused, this would be super helpful.

A bit of kudos though for the web app redesign - while initially it creates an extra step of having to click over to "Manually" as opposed to "Auto" after you click "Assign", it seems to remember your choice after that, so it will now default to "Manually" for me going forward. Very smart.

    You can assign money by clicking on the category. and from what I’ve heard they’re already looking at changing this...they underestimated how many people used the workflow of moving money from TBB.

      WordTenor Oh, thank goodness. I was not looking forward to retraining 3+ years of muscle memory.

  • Thanks, yeah that's a good fix for now. I've pinned my "Income For Next Month" category to the top so I don't have to scroll to get to it. And encouraging to hear they're likely working on a fix.

    Btw love your tagline "Can we agree that goals are dumb and immature? Sure." 😄 My wife and I are big Hamilton fans. "Well if it isn't WordTenor, sir."

      Silver Guitar Ham fans forever! This forum launched right after I got my first set of tix (I’ve seen it twice now and time #3 got scuttled by COVID and hopefully will reappear soon) and so I started out with “I punched the bursar” as my tagline. I update it about every 4-6 months to a new lyric. Some nyoob once got very angry about how haughty I must be with a tagline of “And they say I’m a Francophile; at least they know I know where France is.” 😂

    • WordTenor haha that’s awesome! Look forward to seeing future iterations of it. We haven’t gotten to see the show live yet but certainly hope to one day. Can’t throw away our shot!
