Thursday, September 5, 2019

⭐ Improvements

Wednesday, September 4, 2019

🎁 New Features

    You are now able to delete linked bank accounts and manually added assets. When removing a linked bank account, you'll be presented with options on whether you'd like to keep or remove imported transactions and recurring expenses.

Monday, September 2, 2019

🎁 New Features

  • This changelog!
    Hurrah! We are excited about launching this public changelog. If you have any feedback, feel free to reach out to us via email.

πŸ”§ Bug Fixes

  • Expanded budget view no longer fails & refreshes continuously for some users
Sunday, September 1, 2019

🎁 New Features

  • Autocomplete & search category list
    Quickly select the category using your keyboard when creating a new transaction or updating the category of a transaction

⭐ Improvements

  • Transactions list no longer refreshes in Unreviewed view
    If you make any change to an unreviewed transaction, it will automatically mark it as reviewed. This is by design in order to save users a click. However, if you are in the Unreviewed view of the Transactions table, this causes transactions to disappear before you're finished updating all the fields. We have made so that this will no longer happen in the Unreviewed view.
  • Plaid connection errors are surfaced to the user
    We will now show you more specific error messages related to issues with fetching transactions from your bank.

πŸ”§ Bug Fixes

  • Transactions sort no longer gets reset on changes
  • Dates no longer showing up as INVALID DATE in chart tooltips
  • Mini transaction window in Budget page no longer stuck on the same month despite changing the budget month
  • Updated the empty state copy in Linked Accounts pages to be more consistent with the rest of the UI

end of changelog.
