I need the description field however, I think it is very annoying how the description field is currently auto filling itself.
This would always make me do an extra step of deleting whatever the app is auto-filled into the description field.
A better algorithm would be perfect or perhaps an option to disable? ;)
We are receiving feedback regarding this from time to time. Currently we plan no immediate changes to this behavior but I'll note your vote on this one! We'll also keep an eye on this topic and the number of votes.
I have the same opinion as dennis!
The Description field is only populated if it's left empty. The design decision was that it should not be left empty as it can provide useful information - if you leave it empty, we can display the Category for you so you can identify it on the list of transactions easier.
Remember that Description field can be disabled from Settings -> Transaction layout and Memo field can be used instead - it does not have this feature.
Why not just insert an option in the settings:
"Description autofill: yes/no"
The wish does not appear for the first time.
We're very careful about introducing new settings and preferences as each setting increases the application's complexity a bit more. We'll note your request regarding this and discuss this internally.
