I rolled money over, so why is it saying I need to budget more?

I'm new to YNAB and just finished my first full month of using the system. Early in the month I budgeted $1990 for rent and used it. Near the end of the month, I was able to set aside $1900 for the upcoming rent (rent for May). After the roll over, $1900 showed in a yellow bar under available. I took $90 from another category and moved it to my rent category. I thought I would then be done with that category and get a green bar, but I didn't. It shows $1990 in yellow. On the right side of the screen, it says

Cash left over from April: $1900

Budgeted this month: + $90

Available $1990

Below that, it says "Your goal needs $1900. Budget another $1900 to stay on track." Why is it telling me this when I have already set aside the $1990 I need for rent?

  • That goal looks at the budgeted column. Go back to April and remove $1900 from your rent column. Then go to may and budget the $1900 to rent. Then your goal will be met!!
