When I look at "Spending", I see all transactions (which I like), but not the account

from which these transactions are coming from. Can I add the account into the list of columns I see (Date, Payee, Category, Amount)?

  • Thank you so much - I feel stupid for never having looked there. (I am old, and I need letters and words to understand things. We left hieroglyphs 2000 years ago behind us, so why return to them now? Same things emojis - where one needs a translation to understand what they are supposed to mean; why not use the words right away?)

    LOL!  I'm with you.  I've never liked using icons and emojis, either.  It's like trying to learn entirely new languages when there is already a very simple alphabet with simple words offering pretty clear meanings.  In fact, whenever something on my computer (like the desktop icons) or with a program (like my browser) wants to place an icon for something I do everything I can to at least also show the word(s) for it.  They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks.  I don't believe that but it sure is a lot harder to do than with a young dog.

    Ah, I said I don't like icons and emojis.  Never said anything about acronyms!  (Actually, I don't mind smiley face emojis since the look of them is pretty much universally recognizable.)
    I'll never forget a friend of mine who got pretty heavily criticized for replying to someone's FB notice of a friend who had passed away.  She replied with "LOL!"...thinking that it meant "Lots of love!".   Everyone had a good laugh about that!  So even acronyms are much too easily misunderstood and misinterpreted.  I guess we should just stick with words, huh?  :D:pB)

    I can tell you that some of the acronyms people use in some social media threads take me forever to figure out!

    I saw a comic the other day what the person answered and email with something like "I can do it WTF" (meaning Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday).  The joke was of course that the "old person" saying that didn't realize what it meant to a younger person.

    One of the things I have always "loved" is when people make comments like this GUI isn't "intuitive". There really isn't any such thing.  It is all "learned", and "non intuitive" is just saying that it is using something that they have yet to learn.  There is nothing intuitive about this icon for anyone under say 40 years old, for instance:


    It is interesting that this happens in other contexts too.  I remember a young woman from Germany remarking that passing the written driving test in the US was easy because almost all the signs had text on them.  Whereas in Europe to be "universal" were almost all just some kind of symbol.  One had to learn all those symbols.
