Suggestion - Bill Tracker recurring transactions

Is there any reason why I can't create a Transfer when adding a Bill to the Bill Tracker with a recurring transaction . I'd like to add credit card payments to this that transfer funds from my checking to credit card account? I seem to be able to go into the recurring transactions and change this, but is doesn't seem ideal, but hopefully this will work.

It seems a bit 'klunky' having to link the Bill Tracker and recurring transactions the way it is, but I guess it allows all recurring transations to be visibile in one place.

Would it not be better to, instead of the "If your bill amount changes month to month, we'll pull the value from the Bill Tracker, not what's in the transaction below" message, to just grey-out the transaction figure so it cannot be edited?

The bill tracker was built more for bill payments such as utilities, rent, etc. We have the reminders and recurring transactions tool for more complex transactions. We'll look into adding a transfer option to the bill tracker.

Brandon, I would appreciate that feature as well. I track spending via categories within the credit card accounts and would simply like to transfer funds from my bank account to the credit card accounts in order to pay the bills. What I will do in the interim is create a Category called TRANSFERS and put my credit card payment there. Then when the payment posts in my credit card account, I'll categorize it as a TRANSFER with a net zero. It's a work-around but Brandon if you will do this your tool would be even more useful and I'll upgrade to Premium!

I generally set those up as recurring transactions. That way they post automatically as transfers.
