The automated bank feed method is great and I agree with your approach and why you prefer that.
However, it bugs me without end, that historic transactions are missing!!! I keep wondering how it would have effected my trends etc.
Reasons for my 'missing transactions' are:
1. If you close an account at the bank, the bank feed doesnt update anymore. I have 3 accounts that are incomplete and now after being closed I cannot update them with the final transactions.
2. transactions pre-dating the start of my bank feeds. I have significant transaction I would like to be include in the month predating the start of my feeds.
What manual adding will do for me:
I dont think this will detract or harm your strategy. The day to day is and should be handsfree and automatd with feeds. This works.
But, I will have the peace of mind to know that my trends, nudges etc. are inclusive of my history as far back as I want to go.
May I also point out that in my case (and in many others Im sure), this tool is also used as the financial record-keeping of a household, even one or 2 small businesses. So, having the ability to add ALL transactions is quite vital.
Please add the function to add missing transactions for this of us that are pedantic and cannot stand incomplete accounts!!!
