Save QuickFill Rule MAC

Amazon for example has $13.10 every month, I categorize as Dues & Subs. Amazon also has purchases of this and that with a variety of categories. Can the QuickFill rule look at the vendor AND the amount for the category? Marie

    @Lilykn  To answer your question, no, QuickFill rules are based solely on the Payee. You can have multiple QuickFill rules for a Payee, and you can designate one to be used automatically when there are multiple rules for a Payee. (So you could make this recurring Amazon charge a QuickFill rule, lock it, and make it the default rule for Amazon. But you'd need to edit your other Amazon transactions to have the proper category.)

    There have been requests for rules which incorporate an account (e.g. use one rule if Payee X has a transaction in one credit card, and a different rule if Payee X haas a transaction in a different credit card), but the developers have said they don't plan to implement it because of the complexity involved. Other users want to be able to combine other criteria, such as price, but implementing price-based criteria can also get complex -- is it just matching a specific price? A price greater than or less than a certain amount? A price range? I think the developers are reluctant to add functionality which could be helpful to some but make the interface too complex/confusing for others.

    That said, you could create a new Idea post requesting this functionality (I couldn't find an existing one); if other users agree with the need for the idea, it could get pushed to to developers for consideration.
