I used mixed-style budgets, and I would love to see the ability to add comments to budget lines.

I can add multiple items for budget items, and I maintain a separate Excel sheet which notes what those items are, but it would be really useful if I could just add comments on the items themselves. The idea being that all the information I need is contained in one source.

For example:

   550.00 | Technology:Hardware | Annually (not-prorated) | 2020/01/01 | 2020/12/31 | **Comment: NAS**
   875.00 | Technology:Hardware | Annually (not-prorated) | 2020/01/01 | 2020/12/31 | **Comment: Laptop**

In this way I can plan my budget at the start of the year, and always see how it was I arrived at the amounts/totals, without having to refer to an external source. At the moment, I can only add

   550.00 | Technology:Hardware | Annually (not-prorated) | 2020/01/01 | 2020/12/31
   875.00 | Technology:Hardware | Annually (not-prorated) | 2020/01/01 | 2020/12/31
or
  1425.00 | Technology:Hardware | Annually (not-prorated) | 2020/01/01 | 2020/12/31

but in both situations I can't see what the amounts were for or how I arrived at the total without referring to my separate Excel sheet.

    I totally agree with you! The best I have managed is to add this as a note to each Category - but the note is then rather hidden away and not easy to refer to.

    Hovering over the budget line snd just the note popping up would be great and is possible with some other apps.
