Income not showing in TBB
I've been using ynab since January and have a pretty solid understanding of the system, but today I'm baffled.
Today is my payday. At 11:59 last night, I had $0 in TBB this and all future months. In other words, everything assigned a function and no future negatives.
My pay goes into two accounts (I know that's not simplifying, but one gives way higher interest than my day-to-day local bank account). My accounts are linked to ynab, and the savings account updates quickly, so the transaction on $250 was already imported and shown on my "to be approved" list, showing "inflow, tbb" as the category. I approved it.
I also manually entered the amount going into my checking account (let's say $500 to keep numbers simple) since it was still pending in the account so not synched automatically.
Here's the problem - my TBB only shows $500 available.
I manually checked every category to make sure I hadn't somehow overspent (over assigned) without realizing it, nope. I went through every category for the available future months and other than $5 I knew I'd already assigned from my last income, all future categories show $0 assigned.
I'm at a complete loss to figure out what happened to this money in my budget. It seems unlikely it just disappeared (boy does it *feel* like that some days 😂), but I've hit a wall in where else I can look to figure out what happened.
I'm using the Android app.
Is there something really obvious I'm missing??
Hi Heather is not Sea Green !
Oh gosh, I can totally relate to the:

It definitely does feel like that some days. 😆
I'm wondering, is it possible that you already budgeted the $250? If you were on the web app and you deleted the $250 inflow transaction, does your TBB now show an over budgeted -$250? I suggest using the web app, because then you can just undo the deletion of the $250 transaction (or, you can just re-add it, if you're only using your Android).
I should have mentioned, I deleted and manually re-entered the $250 transaction to test, and when deleted, the TBB amount decreased by $250. (And deleting both transactions brought me to negative $250.)
But before the transaction went in, TBB was zero (including in the future), so I don't see how I could have already assigned those $250 somehow without realizing it (plus, like I said, I manually checked all the budget activity for this month and the remaining in 2018 - as far in the future as I can go on the app - and no category had been assigned it. A few had smaller amounts this month due to moving funds between categories, but since I'm paid biweekly, this would have been the first substantial in October. I haven't assigned the TBB amount from the other account yet until I figure out what happened. It's so strange.
Okay - I can't figure out WHY/HOW this happened, but I see a glitch using the website
When I go to the account where the $250 transaction occurred, as explained above, it shows up, it was automatically imported, and marked as cleared.
But when I pull up "All Accounts" that transaction isn't listed at all. In fact, that ACCOUNT isn't shown at all (I was confused because my last transaction for that account was a transfer from it to my checking account. So, I see the transfer as income, but not the transfer OUT of the savings account).
Can an account somehow be removed from the "All Accounts" report? (It's not a "Tracking" account, it's listed among my other usual bank accounts)
