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.

        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!

        Me too!
        Almost a year after and the developers have not taken any action...

        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.

        The excuse to not allow us to create our own categories or rename the main ones is because of the bank synchronization, but it DOESN'T WORK.

      • Jakub B commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Bank synchronization is a bonus feature and not everybody needs it, but possibility to manage expense categories is fundamental one.

      • Phani Krishna pamarthy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        No excuse can justify this fixed categories list. Atleast we should be able to edit sub categories to our lifestyle. I have a number of instances where I feel the fixed list does not capture my need. For example in supporting my sister in education, but in financial expenses I can only log it under child support or others... I already have Child whose expenses go under this category... This is just screwing my budget and making me spend more time... Just because your developers didn't think through this!!
