Tender is an inbox-zero style tool. When new transactions arrive, they first appear in your inbox.
From here, transactions leave your inbox when you assign a category. You can also create rules to auto-categorize transactions.
You can also set a reminder on a transaction. The transaction will leave the inbox until the reminder duration elapses.
Often, you may see pending transactions. These have yet to settle in your account and the amount may be changed, or the transaction may be canceled altogether.
You can take any actions (categorization, splits, reminders, etc.) on a pending transaction. If the amount of the transaction changes, Tender will place the transaction back into the inbox to let you know.
Splitting a transaction
Sometimes, you may want to categorize a transaction in multiple ways. For instance, a trip to Costco might include both groceries and health products.
When you receive refunds or someone pays you back, you can link the repayment back to the original charge.
This option will show up for any transactions for incoming money. When you link transactions, Tender will know to show you those charges together.
Sometimes, you may have transactions that can be ignored, such as moving money between bank accounts or when you pay a credit card bill. These transactions can be marked using the special
Internal Transfer category which tells Tender to ignore them in reporting.
Tender supports keyboard shortcuts for most features. In the inbox, try using
j (down) and
k (up) to navigate transactions, and
c to categorize.
