I am new. I entered my paycheck in my checking account with category 'to be budgeted'. I have 34 budget categories that I want my paycheck to be divided into. I'm finding that going to the budget page and moving what I want into the various categories is time consuming and error prone. Is there some way to automate this. I have a lot of categories that I just want to add the same amount to with every paycheck, I'd like to allocate the paycheck the same way every month, then I can review the budget and move what I need to to different categories.
This is probably one of the best videos you can watch. This is what pulled me away from YNAB 4. Give every category into which you plan to put money a goal. I do this about two days before the end of the month. At the beginning of the next month, I press the "underfunded" button in the budget inspector, and my budget is funded in less than 1/2 a second.
Budget Templates are the way to go! Nick True also has a good video on why you need goals and how to set them up with YNAB:
