  • Hello, Powder Blue Yeti ! Thanks for giving YNAB a try.

    Here's how to add, remove, and customize your categories, on both the web version and the mobile app. Please let me know if you run into any issues or have any other questions!

  • And just to be clear, a bill gets added to an account but you can have a category to cover that bill.

      Powder Blue Yeti Can you share what bill you want to add?  It would be easier to understand what you'd like to do with an example. 

      If you want to set up a monthly transaction for a bill (like your cell phone or Netflix) you create it under the account it will come out of, such as a chequing account or a credit card and choose the appropriate category.

      Powder Blue Yeti You have to set it to recur, if you want that. Does this answer your question?

      Powder Blue Yeti Paying your bills online is a totally separate action from recording them in YNAB. YNAB is where you document what you paid and should match reality and your real world accounts. Recurring transactions are a good way to record monthly bills in YNAB.

  • This question has 3 or 4 different answers depending on what it is you are actually trying to do. The question is not detailed enough to make it clear.
     

    Do you need to add a new category so you can reserve money on the YNAB budget screen?
    Do you want to add a new scheduled transaction in your YNAB account register?
    Are you trying to set up a bill pay with your bank or with the billing institution?
