How Tiller Works FAQ

Tiller is the only personal finance service that automatically tracks your daily spending, income, transfers, and account balances in your own private Google Sheets and Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.

Tiller also includes top-rated customer support, ultra-customizable automatic transaction categorization, a daily financial summary by email, and flexible templates for budgeting, debt payoff, expense tracking, net worth, and more.

To link your banks and spreadsheets with Tiller, you first authenticate your financial accounts from the secure Tiller Console. Many of the most popular institutions now support open banking, which Tiller helped introduce to the US market.

You then install the Tiller Money Feeds add-on for Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel to connect your authenticated bank accounts to your spreadsheets.

Once connected, most bank feed settings can be managed directly from Google Sheets or Excel.

Tiller Money Feeds connects your financial accounts to your spreadsheets via an add-on for Google Sheets and an add-in for Microsoft Excel. 

Tiller Money Feeds then automatically imports your daily spending, account balances, and income and transfers them into your spreadsheets via autofill or with a click. 

By eliminating data entry and multiple account logins, Tiller Money Feeds makes tracking your money in a spreadsheet 10x faster and easier.
