Amount to be budgeted wrong?
Hi, guys! I logged into my ynab account just now after a few days of inactivity, and my "to be budgeted" amount, which I always keep at 0 is way too high (like 6 months worth of pay way too high).
Categories that had money allocated to them have negative numbers in the "Budgeted" column. My "Wedding" category, for example, has been cancelled out. The site seems to think I "unbudgeted" all that wedding money and it now is ready to be budgeted again.
This is happening in a bunch of random categories and not just for this month. I'm finding negative numbers two and three months back that I know I didn't put there. I'm afraid to go back and mess with anything any farther than that.
Is this happening to anybody else? My budget is all screwed up now and I'm so stressed about it.
Hi Powder Blue Thunder !
It sounds like you may have hit one of the Quick Budget options by mistake. There's one option to "Set Available Amounts to $0.00", which takes the funds out of the selected categories and puts it back into your To Be Budgeted.
When that happens, you can use the Undo button if you haven't cleared or refreshed the page in the web app. Otherwise, you'll need to rebudget those funds.Reply
I have noticed this happening with my credit card for some reason. All I did just now is approve a transaction to my credit card (a small $13 purchase) and it increased my Amount To Be Budgeted by $2500, which was the size of my last credit card payment. I have noticed this happening before as well -- at some point, something went tragically wrong and my To Be Budgeted money has been dramatically off.
These aren't rebudgeted funds, this is phantom money that well exceeds the amount in my accounts.
Looks like I'll have to fresh start as well due to this bug, but I'm not sure if the issue will persist. Shame :(Reply
