Suggestion For Adding Categories/Account Access

While in the middle of a transaction, allow the ability to add a new category (or account in the event of a cross account transaction), from the transaction entry process while sitting in the Category field of the entry. Have the option to "Add" a new category/account from the drop down list of existing categories/accounts.

    Hi dm_corsa

    When entering a transaction and you get to the category field just enter the name of the new category and you will see the prompt Create New Category with that name. If it a new account you want to set up whilst in the category field of a new transaction click ACCOUNT – NEW ACCOUNT as you normally would and on completion of the set up process just start to type the name of the new account in the category field and it will appear as the list filters, no need to exit the category field.

    Hope this helps

    Hmmmm, I thought I had tried that. I'll recheck that. Thank you for your reply.
