Monthly Winning Workflow → Win a Free Year of Tiller
Starting this February 2020, we will recognize an exemplary solution shared in the community at the end of each month. The author of each month’s recognized solution— or “winning workflow”— will win a free year of Tiller Money. (If you’re in a trial, we will pay for your first year. If you already have an active subscription, we will extend it by one year.)
We hope this recognition will inspire the creation of new spreadsheet-based solutions that empower people with greater understanding, confidence, and control of their financial lives. We also hope this process will further showcase and recognize the creativity and skills of spreadsheet enthusiasts.
Our team at Tiller Money is inspired by your contributions in this community. As we watch the community grow, we are amazed at the breadth of spreadsheet, workflow and finance insights. We are reminded each day of the abundant knowledge and lessons when we learn from one another to better manage our finances to better achieve our life goals.
The Tiller Labs team has seeded dozens of general-purpose solutions via the Tiller Labs add-on. We recognize, however, that there is appetite for tools, templates and workflows that extend far beyond what our team can anticipate and conceive of. We witnessed this during the Builders Challenge last Fall.
What We’re Looking For
Each month, the Tiller Money team will evaluate entries on quality, functionality, usefulness, ease-of use & setup, documentation, and creativity. Specifically, we are looking for solutions that:
- Empower people with greater understanding & control of their financial situation
- Solve specific personal-finance riddles
- Showcase what’s possible in a spreadsheet
- Function reliably with clean design, code & documentation
