Possibility to create own categories (parent/ sub-categories)
I would again pay for this app if I could create my own categories and sub-categories. It used to had this option, but a few month ago it was changed to fixed categories, and when I summarize my month it's quite exhausting to categorize my expenses in my own categories. Please consider putting this option back. It doesn't necessarily mean that you have to delete the fixed categories, rather just put an option into categories menu to be able to create your own categories, without any limitations.

I want option to add custom categories which is currently resricted
Enrico Dentale commented
For me is mandatory, a table with my usual shops
I did not buy Wallet for three reasons
1 no minus cost = returning goods shows as income but should show as negative cost
2 cannot change names of top categories ( which they could fix by having concealed/hidden names for inport purposes and have user changeable names visible for users
3) budget function as I understand it does not support the zero sum budget and not different budget per month - instead I found that adding a budget for a month it meant the budget value is ame for all month.
in philosfy one should update budget monthly - I did not understand how.
ANd I want to se a table with all budget figures to see an overview
I really like all the good reports and the ease of how to add transactions/ duplicate transactions etc.
I might check in next year before renewing my current solution
Western Union money transfer
I like to be able to add, edit and move my categories according to my preference too.

I want to be able to write something about the particular transaction, say, food &drinks: lunch with Brian at diners cafe
I need help butting my money on my card
Whitney Lee commented
or at the very least rename them and let us choose a color. I get why we can't edit them if we are syncing our transactions but if there was an option to approve our transaction before it posted in Wallet or if we are enterting them manually, it would work!

not everyone has the same needs so why dont let us make our categories and rearrange them as we need( the ability to show hide is awsome so make ot for the main categories too)
You are right, it would be a great challenge...
Therefore the bank sync should be more like a module, meaning an extra package that can be installed by whoever wants it. They should decouple it from the main app, otherwise they will loose thousands of customers.
I thk why they decide to lock out cat option to allow them have move control on bank sync auto cat assignment.... however more often than not auto cat assign is incorrect anyway. I have to end up correcting them.
For them to get this right will be huge challenge as they so many countries, language and naming conversion to consider.
If the "At the moment there is no plans to change the category structure" is the answer of the support, the "At the moment there is no plan to renew my subscription" is my answer to that.
It's a pity, cause otherwise it's a nice app. Too bad that the developers are stubborn!
category : health. Right now it's divided between two categories

I've contacted the support about this issue and unfortunately, this is the answer:
At the moment there is no plans to change the category structure. You can try to use labels for more flexibility. To learn more about labels, please see: https://support.budgetbakers.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002411225-Labels
Almost a year after and the developers have not taken any action...
I'm done, I quit subscription. Have fun

Something new about implementing this MUST-HAVE feature?
Paul Sticea commented
I just canceled my subscription for Wallet, which was due for renewal this month. I tried a few apps and I ended up paying a subscription for CoinKeeper. It doesn't have as many features as Wallet, but I can create and manage my categories.

Great app, but without this I must use other one which is not so good but it has this basic feature. You must give the users option - banc sync or custom categories, so they can choose. Moreover, I think most of them would choose custom categories.
