The above linked video shows me trying to get the notes column to show, and I also try taking away the tags column.  No matter which columns i select, nothing changes on the display - This was the spending report

    @RobWilk.... this is on the web version? I have been primarily using the android version of Simplifi due to availability to my laptop. It seems that the web version has plenty of problems too.

    I am pretty frustrated since I joined in February with all of these bugs that never get fixed on the android version.  They have pushed a critical filtering fix out 4 times now...and never get dates for when fixes will happen. 

    I am starting to question my decision to use Simplifi due to nothing seems to get fixed. As a past Quicken user for years, this program fails to come close in many ways.  Sorry, I just had to vent my frustration.  Hopefully they can fix these issues before I look at the web version.

    @Clark Yes, this is Web version.  I do use the android app as well, i just used it on a train ride home from NYC day trip earlier today.  As per nothing getting fixed, I reported a problem with wrong balances when cash flow shows past days balances, and it looks like it only took about 2-3 weeks to get that fixed (at least in early access).  What i'm saying, though, is some bugs (one?) are getting fixed.  

    I tried filtering by category on android recently, and it worked for me,  Maybe i don't understand the particulars of the problem.

    Hello @RobWilk,

    Thank you for reporting this behavior to the Community, although I'm sorry to hear that you're seeing this issue in Simplifi.

    I'm a little confused as to how you're seeing the gear icon when viewing transactions listed in the Spending Report, as the transaction lists in Reports aren't customizable like the main register view is, and I'm not personally seeing the gear icon when viewing the Spending Report. I'm also having a hard time narrowing down how you got your Report to say "Transactions/Health" -- I'm assuming "Health" is a Category, however, no matter how I filter my Report, it always says "Transaction Activity" above the transactions list. Would you mind providing the specific details of how you're running/filtering the Report, please?

    Also, have you tried looking at the Report from a different browser and/or in incognito mode to see if the same gear icon/issue appears, by chance? I'm wondering if the issue may be browser-specific or something along those lines. Additionally, what occurs when attempting to add or remove columns in the main register view?

    Please let us know so we can best assist!

    Hi,

    My bad, it wasn’t the spending report, it was Spending Plan’s Other spending page.  Yes, I happened to click on health category but it’s there on all categories too.

    p.s.  I don’t appear to get email notifications for this forum anymore, it is possible they’re going to junk mail folder.

    Thanks for confirming, @RobWilk!

    I noticed the gear icon in Other Spending yesterday and saw the same issue that you described here; I wondered if that's what you were looking at instead of Reports. It does look like the Team is already aware of this issue. I'm not seeing a fix version yet, however, I'll be sure to let you know as soon as there's an update.

    When it comes to email notifications for the Community, I've been seeing an issue this week as well. This has been reported, however, there's currently no ETA on a resolution. For now, a great place to post regarding Community issues would be in the Announcement post -- https://community.simplifimoney.com/discussion/3432/community-post-bug#latest :smile:

  • I have seen the same issue when viewing transactions from a planned spending "card".  After clicking the gear icon, it appears to offer the functionality to choose columns.  But the columns will not update to what is chosen by the user.

    Hey guys,

    Just checking in to see if there's been progress on this bug ...

    I personally use "Spending" plan views the most. Not being able to see the "Notes" column/details makes it (for me) much less helpful.

    @RobWilk, thanks for the time spent screen-capturing it so accurately.
