Option to add ticker symbols manually

I have 3 funds in my Fidelity account that do not pull ticker symbols, and therefore do not pull any data into Simplifi. They are basic index funds, and I know the ticker symbols. There should be some way to manually enter the symbols if the system doesn't automatically detect them, so that data starts populating.

  • I'd love to see this implemented. Currently Simplifi pulls in my Fidelity accounts but does not correctly pull in the ticker symbols for the funds I am invested in. They are basic Fidelity funds, and it would be very beneficial if I could enter the ticker myself so that Simplifi can start pulling in the daily market values for those funds. As of now it pulls no market values in.

    @brian.marturana, have you tried reporting the issue you're seeing with your Fidelity holdings to see if it can be escalated and potentially fixed?

  • I am having this same problem. My accounts show the name of the fund but do not actually link to the ticker symbol correctly, which removes all benefits that come with directly linking to funds. Further, these can't be manually edited so I can't even fix the problem!

    Unless I'm not understanding the issue you are all having, does this functionality not already exist? Below is a screenshot of a manual account I've created (a Fidelity Roth IRA) that is unable to connect to Simplifi. I've added my three ETFs as manual holdings by searching for the ticker symcol and Simplifi correctly updates the Price, Value and 1-day changes without issue. Are those that are having this issue adding mutual funds as opposed to ETFs? Curious what ticker symbols you are all using.
