Viewing all accounts
By default, your empty accounts will be hidden. To view all your category accounts, click on the gear icon to the left of the search bar and toggle on "Empty Accounts" to see them. Once you have a transaction or budget entry in the empty account, it will no longer be hidden.
To add sub-accounts, hover over the main account you want to create sub-accounts under and right click or click on the 3 horizontal dots on the right > "+ Add Sub-Account". If you want to add a main account, add a sub-account under Expense to create a new main account.
To re-order the accounts, click on the category account you want to re-order and drag & drop it to a different row. You can re-order the accounts however you'd prefer.
Applying tag to accounts
To apply a department tag to a category account, click on the drop-down under Financial Report and click on Department Report to access it. Drag and drop the category account to its corresponding department. Once the category account is in there, all future transactions that are in this category account will automatically have its department tag applied. visual: department report
