Just wanted to drop in a feedback thread for the Google Sheets functionality of Plus - I’ve been playing with it most of last night, so had some thoughts.
Figured others may too, so rather than a thread for discussing how we all use Google Sheets, a thread for improvement ideas in the base integration.
Things to address for myself:
- Pot interest payments are not a captured type of transaction anywhere on this sheet - it would be good to capture these as a specific transaction type (though would need to be done in way that doesn’t interrupt a running balance).
- Split Categories - I believe handling each “split” as an individual row would be a more appropriate way handle data, vs the column with the split details - again analysis on the whole data set is more straight forward with that approach.
Any other things missing / you’d like to see improved in the Google Sheet integration?
I came here to say the same about split categories. As it stands, it’s extremely cumbersome to use in formulas in my own budget trackers
So much so, I don’t even want to use it. Automated exports, category splitting and custom categories are actually why I signed up and category splitting is useless to me as it currently stands
Agree on the showing split transactions as separate lines, makes it far more difficult to summarise category spending elsewhere if these are just in a cell
I’d like to have the retailer icon URL in the export. I have an IFTTT-driven integration with Sheets working already. I’ll replace it using the Plus export as a source, but I’ll miss the nice icons that the IFTTT webhook sends over. e.g.
I’d also ideally like imported accounts from other banks exported in other worksheets/tabs, but don’t know if that’s allowed
