What?! There’s a new version of YNAB coming? Yes. It’s YNAB 4, and it’s awesome. If you missed the announcement, you can catch it here. We talk about pricing, availability, etc.
We’ve made some huge improvements to the Spending report in YNAB 4. For starters, you can now view your spending by Payees. That right there is a cause for celebration.
However, we made a lot of great visual changes as well. For starters, with the same size app window between YNAB 4 and YNAB 3, look how much bigger our charts are:
Yeah, so that’s a lot nicer.
The view begins at the master category level, but you can drill down to the category level pie clicking on a pie segment. You get a nice breadcrumb to find your way home:
All of the standard filters are still available for both reports (timeframe, categories, payees, and accounts).
And once again, the sidebar on the right provides some nice tabular/total data when needed. It also doubles as a legend:
You can also click on one of the legend items and see the transactions making up that amount. I can agonize over Walmart spending with the click of a button!
If you want to do further number crunching, the Export option is extremely useful.
In YNAB 4, Spending by Category is dramatically improved, a Spending by Payee debuts. You’ll be enjoying it shortly!
