Transaction Search

Hi, I love the search facility in the Transaction view, it’s neat how you can build up a filter using the different criteria.

However, what would make it great would be two extra tweaks:

  1. When you are selecting a #tag to search for, can the list you are shown to choose the tag(s) be filtered to only those used in the Categor(ies) you have also selected (if any). If you haven’t selected a category, then it’s like it is now - all tags - but if you have selected one or more categories, then only show the tags used in those categories transactions.

Oh, and could the list be in alphabetical order.

  1. Please show a total for all the transactions that have come back in the search. It’s very handy to say show me all my ‘Clothes’ category transactions, ‘This year’, with a tag ‘#Martin’ and see how much had been spent.

This sounds more subcategories? :slight_smile:

I guess it is effectively sub-categories, but more powerful, because you can have multiple tags under a category. So I can see ‘all clothes’ spend, or I can see ‘all clothes’ #martin spend ‘for the year’, or I can see ‘all clothes’ #martin and #work spend or ‘all clothes’ #daniel #school-uniform or ‘all clothes’ #ruby #school-uniform or ‘all clothes’ #school-uniform to show all school uniform clothes, etc., etc… Can you see how useful/powerful this would be?

It already has this functionality, however, you have to scroll through a very long list of unsorted tags to find the one you want, as well as know what you’re looking for. It would just be great if the app pre-filtered the tags for you?

Without filtering the tags, when you have picked a category, it’s arguably pointless showing me all the tags, when 95% of them won’t return any data, so why not be smart and only show me tags that are applicable within the selected category/categories (and period if you want to be even smarter?)? I don’t think there would be much work involved in providing this?

Hey @Themitch :wave:

Ahh, I see what you mean! No point in having to scroll through a list of tags about food if you’ve already filtered on the transport category etc

We can definitely pass this feedback on to the team :blush:
