Connections between Transactions and Budget?

Are there any connections between transactions and budget?

For example, I create categories for my budget and then do some budgeting - plan some expenses and savings.

And then I do some transactions. Does these transactions reflect on my budget? Can I see how much actually I had spent and how much is left in budget for current month?

It could be silly question, but I just don't see any field where I can point/provide information that this transaction goes to this budget category. I can only select transaction categories and they are separated from budget categories.

Thanks!

You should setup include/exclude filters to select transactions which reflect on budget entry: http://www.alzex.com/help/budget-edit.html

Nonetheless, I believe that users (me at least) want to compare their expectations and real expenses looking at one shared set of categories, don't they? Would you mind explaining to me why it's necessary to have two separate sets of categories? It's not convenient, requires extra actions for writing down each operation and confuses users, what's the point?

Is it possible to combine the two sets of categories into one? Thank you.
