is it possible to clear transaction and see their status from the android app ?
If not, is it a function that will come?

The clearing of transaction is very usefull for me but it's a shame that I can't use it on the phone.

Hi Gilles,

We're currently not working on the ability to manually clear transactions through the Android app. In the meantime, you can clear transactions on the web by manually marking them, importing, or reconciling them. 

I've added your suggestion to our requested features tracker for future consideration.

I don't understand why this feature isn't implemented.  If you have the ability to enter transactions in the app, isn't it logical to expect to have the ability to clear the transaction using the app?

Hi Wayne, 

Thanks for posting and adding your voice! It sounds like this is a feature that would be really useful for you so that's why you're wondering why it hasn't been added. 

We have considered working on this in the past. But we couldn't find a design that didn't add clutter and wasn't clunky - both of which can cause usability issues - so we tabled the idea and have chosen to work on other things instead. And, to be upfront, this isn't something we have foreseeable plans to work on again. 

If you're curious about what we are working on, right now, we're dedicating our team's time and efforts building out some Debt functionality to the mobile apps, so folks can manage debt on the go. We know that building out these features would help a significant number of Goodbudgeters. 

If you want to stay updated on what we're working on, feel free to check out our Roadmap

Hope this makes sense!
