So I recently went about two weeks without tracking my purchases on YNAB. I cross-checked the majority of my purchases but the bill wasn't giving me the same total as YNAB. So I used 'Reconcile Account' to bring the numbers back in line. YNAB added a reconciliation adjustment and I figured that was it. But then, I got an overspending alert on my credit card category and then was required to budget money to get it to go away.
Am I understanding the credit card category incorrectly? I thought it was for tracking my credit card transactions and I would pay them off from a checking account category or something. Why am I being told to budget money for this category?
