Merging Transactions


(Douglas Macmillan) #1

Hi. Is there any way to merge transactions? For instance if I was in a bar and bought two rounds of £8 during the course of an eve - rather than clogging up the list with two different transactions - it could show as one merged one totalling £16?

Giving the ability to mess around with transactions would become very dangerous. I can see that it would be nice to have, but it’s a risk that I don’t think is worth it. :slight_smile:

It would definitely be interesting :slight_smile: But I’m not sure it would mesh very well when we’re a bank and this becomes your ‘bank statement’ :thinking:

I think the suggestion is more something that would sit on top of the data, in the app as a statistic instead of part of a statement.

Sounds like it would fit best under the budgeting features that have been suggested a few times.You can already see transactions grouped by merchant if you click on the spent today.

This is something I’ve thought about before but not actually got round to posting. On a few occasions I’ve made multiple transactions at the same merchant very close together (okay, yes mostly nights out…) and it does seem to ‘clog up’ the feed. Definitely a +1 here for merging of transactions.

Just to bump this again, I think that it’s a great idea.

Say for example I buy something from Amazon. Sometimes Amazon charges me a quid and then charges me the rest of the money in a separate transaction. If I was able to merge these two, it would be a lot cleaner.

As for what @tristan said, I feel as though it’s not as serious as made out in the OP. If there are some “merged” transactions, clicking on them could reveal how many “sub-transactions” took place within them.

Maybe there could be a way to “group transactions” so that in the view, it appears as one transaction (with an icon to show it is a group) and if you exported data for tax purposes it would display as actual, separate transactions?
