Bank Connections Suck
So, yes, I'm frustrated. I have been spending the better part of a year dealing with the joke that YNAB calls bank connectivity. Today, I'm staring at a screen - again - where YNAB can't connect to my bank.
The replies I get from support are "well that's not the YNAB way, just enter every expense proactively" (paraphrased). Or, if I look at the support page, I see entry after entry showing failures in connecting to different banks.
This isn't widespread, this is YNAB. My Fidelity account works fine when connecting to other accounts, when I used Mint, it worked fine, and when I used Quicken - also perfectly fine.
I'm tired of YNAB's CONSTANT connectivity failures and constant inability to help. This is 2020 - all kinds of online services talk to each other flawlessly. Get this fixed YNAB...
Have to re-up on this one. It has been over a month of issues with AmEx and Charles Schwab and it just doesn't seem that YNAB and their direct import partner should have problems like this for that long. I know how to to unlink and I know how to manage connections and then re-load the whole thing. But truly, YNAB is falling down on this - what's the status of fixes here? It's crazy that we pay a monthly charge and then have problems like this over and over.
