It would be great if we could customize the dashboard to see what is most important to us and not have it cluttered with widgets we don't use or aren't as important to us.

    @mazar1977 I think that would be an amazing addition to Simplifi!

    I just starting using Simplifi as a spending tracking tool.   It has a great UI and it easy to customize and use.  One are that needs attention is the Dashboard, too many panels and for it is cluttered.  I would like to be able to hide the majority of the panels not related to spending - plan, watchlists, goals achievement and investments.  Thanks form listening, Mike S

    One of the primary use cases for me for a budgeting/tracking app is the ability to go through and verify my transactions in real time. It feels like Simplifi is trying to push them under the carpet in order to generate reports. 

    I would really like if there was an option to configure the dashboard so that it shows only the non reviewed transactions by default, so I can use that as my “todo” list. 
  • I briefly checked out a competitor (using a free trial) and this is a key feature I feel Simplifi is missing. The ability to pick and choose widgets made the dashboard on the other site stand out. It was very fresh and clean.

    I love Simplifi but I wish there was greater ability to customize and remove unnecessary items - just simplify things.

    Please add the ability to remove or hide tiles!

    Investments, Savings Goals, Spending Plan, Achievements, and Watchlist.

    For example, I don't use any of these features. They clutter my screen. I should be able to inactivate their visibility, and either re-enable them or "reset" the dashboard to the Simplifi default.

    This features is available at competitors like Monarch Money.

    This is a critical comment. I can't believe that Simplifi's web app interface does not allow removing visibility of unwanted apps, or moving them around in a preferred order.

    Most of Simplifi's competitors provide this functionality.

    Hello @Dan-in-Virginia,

    Thanks for sharing your feedback with the Community!

    To clarify, you can re-order the Simplifi Web App's Dashboard items, and you can also reset them to the default order. You'll find a video in our Support Article here that shows how to rearrange Dashboard items on the Web App, and you can reset the default order by clicking the Profile icon in the left-hand navigation bar (very bottom icon of a person), and then selecting "Reset Dashboard Layout".

    I hope this helps with some of what you're looking for!

    This doesn't resolve my need because I want to remove visibility to many of the widgets that I don't use and therefore don't want to see cluttering my desktop. If I choose to use them, then I would want to see them. Quicken currently doesn't give me this option.

    I should be able to fully customize the dashboard: remove sections I don't want, reorder the sections, etc.

    Also, it's highly distracting when my mouse moves over anything, and it suddenly hovers and gains a drop shadow. We don't need animations from 1998. The product is called SIMPLIFI…so please…simplify it.

    I would think it wouldn't take much to have a 'customize dashboard' button that showed a list of widgets, which could be reordered with move up/down or "Shown/Hidden" with a checkbox next to them.

    It might be a difficult issue to make tiles customizable, but I would think it would be a quick adjustment for developers to allow for unwanted tiles to be hidden or deleted.

    +1 for customizable desktop dashboard.

  • Should be able to modify what tiles/summaries are on the home page, how large they are, and where they are located. Just being able to widen the summary on the left side so I can see all of my full account names would be a huge improvement!

  • RobWilk

    You can hover over any shortened account names as a short-term workaround and see the full names.

    I am not against this idea, but I'm not sure if I'd want to vote to prioritize this over other ideas which i consider more important.

  • Being able to even change the width and size would be helpful. I can't even see my full account names on the summary pane and don't have the ability to widen it!

  • I agree about prioritization, but the time required to make a given improvement should also be considered. Many of the suggestions here would not take very long to implement, as opposed to some other (higher priority) items that would require a much longer turnaround time.

  • Yes would like to move things around to put focus on what i want to see, and frankly, id like to see it the way i had it with mint, where i had a charts with trends for various items at the top

    +1 for this!

    Really would like to see the trend chart like Mint and Empower have for net worth and investments with the ability to at least see it for 30 days, 1 year, and all time

  • Does anyone know if there is at least a way to eliminate unwanted dashboard items. That would remove a lot of clutter from mine.

  • Since I dont use all the features of simplifi, i'd like to remove them from the dashboard view. The mobile app offers some of this functionality, but the windows chrome version doesnt. Also would love a Net Worth widget on the dashboard (see other post re: more granular net worth suggestion). Thank you!
