Please forgive this question, as I suspect it has been asked/dealt with previously. But I cannot find reference to it in any documentation.
My question: Can or does MoneyDance "automatically" categorize a transaction upon downloading, and assign it to a previously identified category for such a Payor or Payee type? IOW, does MoneyDance "learn" as it goes, so that each like-kind of downloaded transaction need not be manually changed to its correct (non--default) category?
Thank you for contacting Moneydance support.
I believe you are referring to the feature Automatically Merge Downloaded Transactions. When selecting this option from Moneydance/File->Preferences->Network, it automatically merges and categorizes transactions downloaded through direct connections, or imported from your bank's website.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions or need more assistance.
Did this solve the problem for you? I am
still having the same problem. All the downloaded transaction for me
show up as the default category (ATM Withdrawals in my case). MD 2022.3
(4077) on Windows 10.
I am setting up an empty account from scratch, linking it to an online account (created through MD+), and then downloading all the transactions. All the transaction show unconfirmed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance for your time
Yes, have same issue - all transactions downloaded from MoneyDance+ use default Category Tag of ATM Withdrawal even though I set 'Automatically Merge Downloaded Transactions'.
Any way to auto categorize?
