Problem Changing Scheduled Transaction Date in App

I had a transaction scheduled for today, but need to change the date to the future.  The app will not allow me to do it, but I can do it on my PC.  In the app when the calendar pops up future dates are grayed out for the transaction.  Is this a bug?  I always have this issue on the app.

  • I believe that is "as designed". The app was/is designed for "on the go" so it would not make sense to be entering a transaction that has not happened yet. They may change that going forward as more people use their phones exclusively. For example, you also can't reconcile an account on the app.

    MXMOM is right, you can’t change a past or today’s date transaction to a future date on mobile. Instead, you need to delete and create a new future-dated version. This is the behaviour for now, but we're definitely looking into improvements there!

  • Thanks for the responses.  I hope that this is changed in the future.  If I can enter a new transaction with a future date in the mobile app it seems to make sense that I should be able to change a current dated transaction to a future date as well.  I shouldn't have to delete and reenter.

  • I also hope that this is changed in the future. Just to give some context I try to use YNAB on my phone as much as I can. I use my spare time while commuting or waiting in line to reconcile my accounts and take care of my budget. Not being able to correct an upcoming transaction to a future date is really annoying, mainly beacause the work around (deleting it and making a new one with the same content) is much more demanding on my phone.
