Main Category viewable in auto selection

A way to include main categories when the auto selection menu comes up as you type in a category. For example we have a few sub categories with the same name so when the auto selection comes up, it's a guess as to which is the right one. We do scroll through them to find it, but would love it if there was a way to make that pop up in the auto selection.

    Hi @andrewleeschultz_12 Welcome to the Expensify Community! Thanks for your Idea!

    What some of our customers do here is either:

    1. Change the category structure if there's only a few i.e. all at the top level
    2. Include the Category name in the Subcategory e.g. 'Paint Supplies: Rollers' and 'Hair Styling: Rollers' would be renamed to 'Paint Supplies: PS Rollers' and 'Hair Styling: HS Rollers' to make the search easier.

    I hope that helps!
