Migrating from other apps

Keeping your existing transaction history is important. If you already usy a different app, you probably want to migrate it over into Actual.

Right now, only YNAB4 is officially supported. However, the API allows anyone to write a custom importer. We will work with the community to help write other importers soon.

Migrating from YNAB4

  • Go to the Create new file screen (this is the first screen you see on first launch).
  • Click Import…
  • All of your existing YNAB4 budgets should be listed. Select the one you want to import.
  • Click Import
  • That's it!

Migration from other apps

YNAB4 is the only builtin importer right now. We're hoping the community can help build other importers on top of the API.
