Automatic categorisation of your transactions

Good news – we have made categorising your transactions simpler so you can understand the categories of your spending. When you securely link your bank accounts with  Humaniti, we’ll automatically categorise your transactions for you. That way, you can better understand where you’re money is going and where you can save.

Custom categories to suit your needs

If you need to add a custom category to track your spending habits, that’s also covered. You can easily create up to five custom categories. Simply go to your categorisation settings from the mobile app menu to create a custom category.

This might be useful to you if you want to track a regular payment to a merchant over time to understand your spending. Think you’re buying too many cappucinos every week in your local coffee shop? Simply set up a custom coffee category to understand how much you’re spending.

Set categorisation rules for your custom category

Once you’ve set up your custom category, you can then choose to assign transactions from your chosen merchants to that category. Simply review your transactions to find those you want to assign to your chosen category. Next, decide if you want all past and future transactions from the same merchant to be automatically be put in the same category.
