I’ve recently upgraded to the Plus account and I’m really enjoying it so far.
I went to split my first payment into multiple categories this morning and just find it to be a truly horrible experience. While the support staff are lovely, sending feedback via in-app help seems to be akin to sending things into the void, and I can’t find a similar thread on here so I’ll outline some of my issues with it.
Even as a lead UI designer and developer, not all of my ideas are fantastic, and I understand that everyone wants something slightly different, but I hope I’m not the only one having trouble:
- Having to select categories in advance is annoying. It means having to figure all of that out in advance, which might be good practice, but is unlikely to be the case all of the time. It would be nice to be able to ‘add another category’, like you can for payees when splitting a payment between multiple people.
- The idea of automatically assigning amounts to other categories when filling one in is a nice idea, but in practice it’s infuriating. It seemingly assigns amounts at random, and repeatedly overwrites something you’ve already manually entered after changing the amount in one of the other categories. It would be much nicer to just let you manually type things in and show you if you haven’t accounted for the whole balance yet.
- If the bill was split originally - e.g. groceries between me and my partner - even after requesting and receiving payments for those splits - I have to account for them in categories, meaning I have to assign an amount that doesn’t really have anything to do with me to a category. It would be nicer if it just ignored amounts requested from other people.
