I like being able to search my transactions in Emma. However, the current search features feel a bit disjointed and (perhaps simply because they are disjointed) somewhat limited to me. Here is some feedback:
There seem to be two separate search facilities
- Tag and merchant search (accessed from “what did I spend” card on the Feed). Unfortunately this only provides a subset of merchants rather than a complete list (and its not clear what makes the cut), and I assume also only a subset of tags (but not sure about this). However on the plus side you can limit the search to specific periods in time.
- A keyword search accessed from the Accounts tab. However, this does not allow limiting search to time periods of interest.
Perhaps it would be better if you unify to a single search facility which combines the features of your two existing search options, even if there are multiple entry points to the same facility. I would also add I don’t find the entry point to the keyword search particularly intuitive (accounts tab). Until recently, I have forgotten it’s there on at least a couple of occasions.
