Why spreadsheets are more flexible and powerful than apps when it comes to hands-on financial tasks like budgeting, tracking spending, and managing investments.
When you think of spreadsheets, the first programs that come to mind are likely Excel and Google Sheets. But what are the best spreadsheet alternatives?
We centered an April Fools’ prank around Tiller support for VisiCalc, the first spreadsheet created back in the 70’s. The truth is, that old software for the Apple II computer was really important for our advancement into the digital era we live in today.
If you love Google Sheets as much as we do, you’ve probably already discovered Ben Collins. He recently published an essential post, “10 techniques to use when building budget templates in Google Sheets.”
Our own Tiller budget template is finally here! Customize your budget period, group your categories, configure your linked accounts, track your budget progress, and get a detailed analysis of your transactions by category all with this easy-to-use budget spreadsheet.
Using a built in feature of Google Sheets you can easily and securely get your financial data, like your transactions and balance history, into another Google Sheet. You can use this quick spreadsheet function to harness your data for use in advanced reporting dashboards or quickly get it into an existing financial worksheet.
