If you ever need to temporarily disable the Toolkit, the Disable Toolkit for YNAB setting on the Advanced Setting tab was designed for such occasions.
To be clear — this button temporarily disables the Toolkit altogether. It does not change your settings. If you want to reset your settings, use the Reset Settings button instead.
The Disable button is handy but there’s an even quicker and easier way to accomplish the same thing.
There’s a Disable button built right into the extension’s popup. Simply open the extension (1) and click on the slider off/off toggle button (2) found between the bug icon and the Open Settings button.
When the Toolkit is disabled (using either method) there are plenty of visual indicators reminding you that the Toolkit is off. The browser extension icon turns from green to red. Also, on the extension’s popup window, the Toolkit for YNAB logo replaces all the normally green text with red text. And finally, the disable toggle button itself is grey with red instead of green.
In my line of work — working with clients, recording my screen for videos, taking screenshots for this guide — I make frequent use of this function. I’m not sure how often the average YNABster would use it but it’s nice to know it’s possible to disable everything with a single click.
