Frequently asked questions
You can change a transaction subcategory by selecting Edit from the transaction details screen. If known, we'll provide suggested subcategories based on the transaction description, or you can create a custom subcategory. To do this, tap Create a subcategory, enter the Custom name you'd like, and then tap Save. Confirm if you'd like similar transactions to be recategorised. The system will continue to learn as you update your subcategories.
Transactions with a pending category can't be updated and won't appear in your Cash flow and Top Categories insights.
