Clear out categories on multiple transactions

I usually YNAB first in the morning.  For the transactions that I don't know what category they belong to, I clear out the category field, so my wife knows which transactions she need to assign.  This would be much easier if I could multi-select and clear the category.  This could be achieved by adding a "Clear Category"  in the category list, or on the Edit menu.

  • Hi StephanWolf !

    There isn't a way to mass clear those categories, partly because we want every transaction to have a category. You can change the category of multiple transactions at once, they just can't be changed to nothing. 

    You could create a 'NEEDS ATTENTION" category, and categorize the transactions there until your Wife has the chance to go through them. Or use the flag feature to mark the ones that still need to be categorized.

    I hope those ideas help!
