My default location is always one location behind (GeoPayees)

Every time I enter a transaction on my phone, the default payee is the one that was used for the previous transaction.  If I edit the payee, the one I want is available at the top of the list due to the GeoLocation.

If I am at McDonalds, it first shows Dunkin Donuts (the previous place I had entered a transaction from), I need to edit and select the first item from the list which is McDonalds.  Then, if I cross town and go to the gas station, the default payee shows up as McDonalds.  If I edit the payee, Mobil is the first one on the list due to its location.  This cycle repeats throughout the day.

It seems to me, if I am at McDonalds, the default should be McDonalds.  Is the behavior I see typical, or is there something I can adjust?

  • Janelle at YNAB  can we port this to Bugs? This sounds like a bug. (Also I don't know who to tag to move things from one category to another.)

      WordTenor I'll wait to hear what device the user has and we'll move it over to the iOS or Android bug category as appropriate! Thanks!!

  • Hey  glynab thanks for reporting this! I'd love to dig in a little more to this one. 

    When you enter a transaction, (1) does the defaulted Payee have a globe icon next to it? 

    (2) When you click to edit the Payee, is the actual payee listed near the top of the section "Near You"  with a number next to it? If so, what's that number (it should be in feet)? A screenshot is fine, too!

    Feel free to send those details in through the YNAB app and we can take a closer look!

      (1) The default Payee does not have a globe icon next to it. 

      (2) Yes, the actual Payee is available and at the top of the list within a few feet of my location.  I just confirmed this today.  Just to be clear on how I start the process, I 3D press the YNAP app and select "add transaction".

  • I also tend to get this. It happens if I'm too quick trying to enter a transaction (which I guess applies to 3D touch on the icon). If I wait a few seconds, the app then picks up the correct location.

    I figure the app just needs to be changed to make sure it's grabbed the latest location prior to starting the new transaction flow.

  • Based on what switkiss mentioned, I tried an experiment today.

    When I entered my transaction using 3D touch, the wrong default payee showed up for my location.  Instead of selecting the correct one, I just cancelled the transaction and then started a new transaction from within the application.  This time, the correct payee showed up.

  • YES!! this has been happening to me forever. and it does appear to be related to 3D touch and the app not getting my new location quick enough. would love to see a fix for this. it's been driving me batty for awhile now.

  • I run into this as well with 3D Touch. Once I edit the Payee, I am provided the correct one based on my location.
