So I have this design where I have a large list of transactions, which I want to categorize. The transactions have the following information:
**Date**: 2014-03-16 **Note**: 1231832 Belfast account **Amount**: 21000
When this large list is imported I can leave every item as "uncategorized", or click each item to give it a category. When I categorize an item, I want to have the option to create a rule, which will give me the ability to categorize all items, for both previous imports, this import and future imports. One rule could be
<categorize all transactions containing "Belfast account" into the "Ireland" category>
I therefore need (?) to select a subset of the "note" string. In the above example I'd want to remove the "1231832" part from the rule, only selecting "Belfast account" for the rule. I'm thinking of using sliders, to also scale well between pc and mobile. The problem I see with this solution is that I'd either have to have the create-rule-action on a separate page, making the flow a bit cumbersome, or I'd have sliders on every row on the import page, possibly making it cluttered.
