Editing Transactions


How do I edit the merchant name or category for a transaction?

When you make a transaction, we'll automatically try and categorize it, using information we get from the merchant's card reader.

If that information is missing, or hard to read (or you happened to buy candy at the gas station, rather than gas), you can easily re-name or re-categorize the transaction. This way, you can keep your spending graphs and trends super accurate.

When you do this, you can specify whether you'd like the change applied to future transactions with this merchant or just the one you're editing. If you note that you'd like it changed on future transactions, we'll try to automatically apply the category or merchant name you entered whenever we process a new transaction with that merchant.

To change the category:

  1. Click Change next to the assigned category. Editing transactions 1
  2. Select a new category.Editing transactions 2

Can I create my own categories, or split one transaction into multiple categories?

Not at the moment. We've gotten a few requests for these features, though, and we're definitely exploring the possibility of offering them in the future.

Adding a memo or hashtag

You can add a memo to any transaction from the transaction detail screen. This is a good place to jot notes, like what you bought or how you felt about the purchase.

If you add hashtags, like #cash or #socializing, to your memos, you'll be able to click on them (hashtag search is web-only for now) to instantly bring up all the transactions with that tag.
