How to rename or merge a category using the Tiller Money Labs add-on

About

The Tiller Money Labs add-on includes a tool that will allow you to rename or merge categories.

You might want to rename a category if you decide you want to modify it or need to make it more or less broad.

You might want to merge a category if you no longer need the granularity it offers.

This workflow will update the category in the following places

  • Categories sheet
  • AutoCat rules sheet
  • Transactions sheet
  • Budget Journal (if using the Savings Budget dashboard from Tiller Money Labs)

How to use it

  1. Launch the Tiller Money Labs add-on from the add-ons menu
  2. Navigate to Tools > Rename category
  3. Choose whether you want to rename or merge a category
  4. Add a new category or select the existing category for merge

Choosing to rename a category means every instance of the existing category will be replaced with the new category and the old category will be removed from the Categories sheet.

Choosing to merge a category means all existing instances of the category will be merged with the selected category. This will also merge the budget values for the category into the new category’s budget.
