We’ve been busy here at Tiller this year, growing our customer base significantly while also investing in our solution. Our work in the months ahead is guided by four priorities. I wanted to share those priorities and what they mean for you.
1. Security and privacy are at the core of everything we do at Tiller. We are unique among personal finance services in that nobody in our company sees any customer transactions and balances. We’ve written our software so your data remains encrypted and unavailable to developers, support, and everyone else at Tiller. Your data is just that: your data. Our job is to empower you in using your data wisely. Looking forward, we will continue to invest in privacy and security while also communicating about this work to customers.
2. We know that reliable and consistent feeds are the biggest reason you use Tiller Money. We’re already delivering a home run for many customers. For others, we have work to do and we know it. We are currently working to improve Tiller’s performance with banks that use multifactor authentication, to add unsupported banks, and to get data into your spreadsheet faster. Some of this will come through new interfaces and APIs with our data provider, Yodlee. We’re also evaluating using additional providers so every customer gets all their data into their spreadsheet each day.
3. We are creating a community of spreadsheet enthusiasts. We’ve always been awed by the solutions people have created with Tiller. Now there is a place to share that great work: right here in the Tiller Community. It’s a place to find and share workflows, spreadsheet examples, and other tools that empower people to manage their financial lives with the control and flexibility of spreadsheets.
4. We’re jumping into the community ourselves to share more spreadsheet tools and templates that demonstrate what’s possible with Tiller. To showcase this work, Tiller Labs has created an add-on with new solutions we’ve built as well as many of our existing templates. We’re focusing on velocity and breadth, trying to get more new concepts into your hands faster. We’re using the community to both share and support these solutions, and to spark ideas for new solutions to build.
Our latest product release that reflects these priorities is the Tiller Money Feeds Add-on for Google Sheets. In the past, you could only use Tiller in spreadsheets that were owned by Tiller. Now if you want to try Tiller in a spreadsheet you find in our community, discovered via Tiller, or anywhere else, you can add Tiller Feeds to it easily. (This add-on is built much like our Excel add-in.)
No changes are needed for current Google Sheet spreadsheets that use the Feed Bot. However, the next time you decide to create a new Tiller-powered Google Sheet, you will do it with the Tiller Money Feeds Add-on. It performs like the Feed Bot, but it allows you to attach Tiller Feeds to any spreadsheet.
Thanks for being a Tiller Money customer. You are why we are in business. Your subscription fee is our sole source of revenue. And your success inspires us to keep making Tiller better. Thank you!
