Update: The bank feeds integration for Chase, Bank of America, Capital One, and Wells Fargo banks are now using oAuth connections, extensively improving the stability and security of this feature.

How to switch between multiple bank and bank accounts

You can connect to multiple banks and individual bank accounts. Here's how:

  1. Select the "+ Connect bank" button on the top right corner of the screen.

  2. Follow the instructions on the screen to add multiple bank and bank accounts.

  3. Select the dropdown icon beside the bank name.

  4. A dropdown list should appear, listing all the banks you have connected.

  5. Select the bank you'd like to switch to and wait for the system to retrieve your updated accounts and transactional data from Plaid.

  6. To switch between accounts within the same bank, simply select the "Select to view transactions" button on the account card.

How to add or remove bank accounts

At times, you may wish to add or remove the accounts selected from your bank. Follow the steps below to add or remove accounts.

  1. Select the cog button located on the top right corner of the page and select "Manage accounts".

  2. Upon confirmation, you will be taken through the Plaid account connection flow to select or de-select the accounts you'd like the system to connect via Plaid.

    *IMPORTANT* - You will lose all reconciliation history of removed account(s).

How to assign a nickname to an account

You may wish to assign a nickname to accounts of the same type.

  1. To edit the account name, select the edit account located in the top right corner of the account card.

  2. Give your account a nickname by typing into the highlighted field. To restore the account name back to its original, simply remove all text in the field and select "Enter".

  3. Your account name is updated.

We are still developing this feature and we intend to automate the entire process once we have taught our AI systems to accurately recognize and record payments.
