Search Transactions on Mobile

How to search on Mobile

Can't remember how much you spent on takeout last week? Not to worry — you can search transactions easily at the top of your account register! 


You can also search across accounts by selecting All Accounts on the Accounts tab and using the search box there.

Can't see mobile search? Try scrolling up or tap on the search icon in the top bar to reveal the search bar.  

To activate search, tap the search box and start typing. YNAB will filter the transactions in your account register based on what you type.

Type a number and YNAB will show you transactions that match your search.

Search Criteria

You can also search for multiple criteria. For example, if you wanted to see all of your red flags in your dining category, you could search "Dining Red". Here are the different criteria you can search for:

  • Category
  • Payee
  • Amount
  • Flag
  • Memo
  • Splits
  • Cleared/Uncleared/Reconciled/Unreconciled
  • Approved/Unapproved
  • Inflow/Outflow

Tapping X or Cancel will clear a search. If you only see a limited list of transactions in your account register, that means that search is still filtering your transactions. To go back to the full list, scroll to the top and tap the X or Cancel.

Let the transaction hunt begin!
