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 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

        More icon options, and an option to edit the main category instead of just subcategories

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        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!

        it is necessary that you upload moreeeee icons

      • ouss lee lucas commented  · 

        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.

      • tropper789@gmail.com commented  · 

        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!
