Write to scheduled transactions?

I have debt payment snowball spreadsheet in a Google Docs sheet that I am attempting to integrate with YNAB through the API and Google Apps script.

For each debt payment in YNAB I have a scheduled monthly transaction.

My goal is to have the scheduled transaction amounts updated automatically from the snowball spreadsheet when the spreadsheet is updated. Essentially adding a snowball debt payment tool to YNAB.

The roadblock I'm facing is the lack of a writeable API for scheduled transactions. Are there plans to allow this at some point?

  • FiftyAndBroke , the API doesn't currently support writing scheduled transactions, but it's on the list!

      George Just wanted to add my vote to get adding scheduled transactions on the API. It is the final piece that I need to complete the way I want to use YNAB.

      FiftyAndBroke Sorry, no news on adding support for scheduled transactions. I'll be sure to post if/when it is scheduled.

  • I would like to vote for this as well.  I have an app that I'm working on and when I pay bills for a given month, it's often a day or so before the next month...while I can update the category amount for the upcoming month, I can't put the transactions into the next month to match the categories.

  • Plus one from mee too. Have successfully connected YNAB with my bank accounts and set up a Raspberry Pi to do the syncing twice every day. 

    Missing the possibility to automatically import future payments from my bank into YNAB. Would be even easier to manage my budget then.
