A big issue I’m having with this app is it seems that only the first word of the description is used to identify similar transactions. For most places this doesn’t really matter. McDonald’s Bristol and McDonald’s Swindon for example would both correctly become “Eating Out”.
For Paypal it’s a bit different, all their transactions are “Paypal * ShopName” and Nova’s categorise similar transactions feature then attempts to categorise ALL Paypal transactions. Curve has a similar isssue because they use “Crv * ShopName”. Whatever comes after the * could be a very different category.
Asda has a similar issue, their transactions are labelled either “Asda stores [location]” or “Asda filling station [location]”, two very different categories, but again Nova attempts to categorise them the same.
I really don’t want to have to categorise every Paypal transaction manually, especially as I have a few shops I regularly buy from, and I certainly don’t want to have to do it for Asda. Is there a way to make more specific rules for these transactions?
