Remove no longer used category

How would I remove a no longer used category so that it stops showing up on my monthly budget page but I do not lose the historical data associated with it?

E.g. We tracked category “A” in 2019 and 2020 but starting in 2021 we will no longer track category “A”. Can we somehow make it so category “A” doesn’t show up when looking at the 2021 budget but I can still see the spending on it when looking at 2019 and 2020? Right now I just have it set as a budget of $0 but was wondering if there was a better way to hide it all together.

you can hide the Category from the Category Sheet. Just change the value in the Hide from Reports Column

@richl is right on hiding it for 2021 budgeting purposes. If you then later need to review 2019 and 2020 data just unhide it temporarily as most of the other dashboards from Labs and in the Foundation template won’t show categories marked as Hide.
