Hello, I’m new to the forum and Tiller Money but have found I really like it. I’ve used a spreadsheet for decades and decided it was time to get real time feeds integrated into my budgeting. I’ve tried several products including Mint and YNAB and neither worked the way my brain works. Tiller on the other hand, seems to fit very nicely.
That being said, I have a few questions about overall direction of product development. When I first stumbled on Tiller it was due to the Excel support of the program. I’m not a fan of `the cloud’ from a security standpoint (I’ve been in IT since 1983) and so having my spreadsheets in the cloud doesn’t sit quite right. As I poured through the forums it quickly became obvious that Google Sheets is the original and more supported tool when it comes to the very handy lab add ons. I’ve reconciled using Google Sheets for now, but will always yearn for Excel because a) I’ve used Excel for years and am fairly proficient with it and b) all my data stays on my laptop.
Excel support is in beta currently and that’s all good, but it does raise some questions:
If I decide to move from Google Sheets to Excel will I be able to without losing historical data?
Is the direction for Excel support to have all the functionality, including lab add ons, that Google Sheets has?
Will Excel development be on the same timeline as Google Sheets? In other words, can we expect added features/functions to be rolled out at the same time for both products?
Sorry for all the questions and long winded post!
