Update: Change in Pill Colors

Hello everyone,

We recently introduced a change to the colors (the “pills”) around Available amounts on the budget in order to bring those colors into compliance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. We were made aware that these changes actually made it more difficult for some to quickly identify key information, which is the opposite direction we want to move in for accessibility.

Today, we’re following up with two related updates, which will roll out to YNABers over time.

  1. We've tweaked those new colors a bit. It’s a small change that made a significant difference for some of the folks who tested it in the past weeks.
  2. We’re introducing the option to use the classic colors, if that’s your preference. To check that out, open your Budget Menu by clicking on the name of your budget in the top left, select My Account, and scroll down to the Options section.

If you'd like early access to these options, please send us an email at [email protected]! Otherwise, please know that your account will automatically be granted access within the next couple of weeks.

We've got lots more work to do to make YNAB even more accessible, including not relying solely on color for important signals in the app. We're excited about that work to come.

  • We've started to ramp this feature up to more users today, so I'm going to shut down further comments on this thread. Testing is going well, and all users will have access over the next couple of weeks.

    If you still prefer to have early access to the feature, please send us an email at [email protected] to request it. We'll be happy to do so!

    Thanks, everyone!
