I have two requests to make manually assigning spending categories easier:
1. Remember scroll position when returning to the transaction list after editing transaction details.
Today I was reviewing expenses from trip that happened 3 weeks ago, and assigning categories / notes for each transaction. Every time I returned to the transaction list after updating the transaction details, I was taken back to the top of the transaction list and had to scroll all the way back down to find the transactions for my trip.
2. Indicate the spending category for all transactions in the transaction list, not just those that don’t have an icon.
It’s currently very time consuming to ensure transactions have been categorized correctly, as I have to click on each transaction to confirm the category (unless the merchant doesn’t have an icon). Most recently I wanted to make sure that all my business expenses were categorized as such (it’s impossible for the auto-categorizer to get this right), and this took quite a bit of time. I’m sure some sort of highlight or non-intrusive indicator could be added to each transaction to show the category.
I realize that most users won’t categorize their transactions as thoroughly as me, but both of these requests seem like they would support power users without adding friction for the average user.
