Obsoleted categories will show up on a budget dashboard when a category has been removed from or altered the Categories sheet, but is still either in use on the budget or in the Transactions sheet.

How to handle obsoleted categories:

  1. Correct or remove all instances of the category from the Transactions sheet. Sorting & filtering the sheet by the Category column is a quick way to address these obsoleted categories.
  2. Remove the budget amounts for the obsoleted category in the current and all past budget periods by entering 0 into the Adjust cell for the category. 
  3. Open the Tiller add-ons menu and choose Tiller > Budget > Analyze Budgets History.
