Category groups allow to group categories and get extra information on your monthly and YTD reports. For example, Car, Gas, Car Insurance, Car Finance categories may belong to a ‘Transportation’ group. Your water, hydro, natural gas, and other related to your house expenses may belong to a ‘House’ group (it’s a good opportunity to compare the monthly fee in a condo with the house real ‘monthly’ fee.
Unlike categories themselves, groups are free to type in. Simple Home Budget will still offer you a drop-down list of all existing groups so that you can select an existing group or just type in new one.
On the “Categories” tab you will see new column “Group,” that you can sort like any other column just by clicking on the column header.
