Group activities list in parent category

Very often I would need to look at all movements grouped by the parent category. Suppose you have these categories:

|- software:licences
|- software:apps
|- software:services

I would like to set only the parent category "software" on the left bar and click it to see all transactions from the subclasses licenses, apps and services. Instead the list is empty because there are no transactions assigned to the parent category.

    Hi Roberto,

    You could generate a 'Transactions' report on 'Software'.
    When setting the parameters, check-mark the option to 'Include Sub-Accounts'.
    'Memorize' the report so to designate it to the left side-bar.

    Hi Kevin,
    your suggestion helps for generating reports, my concern is about creating an editable view like any other account view (in which you can "edit" the transactions) showing all the transactions of a category and its subcategories. Sometime I would have take a lot advantage of such kind of view.
    So that's my suggestion :)
