About to purchase Simplifi

Hello Community, I'm about to purchase Simplifi and wanted your tips please. How is the initial set up done? Do I have to follow certain steps or is it all intuitive? Regards, Chris

Hey, welcome to Simplifi. I'd agree with
that Simplifi does a pretty decent job walking you through the process of setting it up...from what I can remember.
That said, one thing that I do remember tripping me up was how far back to download/keep transactions in the various accounts (ex. Checking, Savings, CC #1, CC #2, etc.). For a detailed summary, check out this post (
). In my replies, I tried to lay out the problem and how I addressed it as clearly as I could; hopefully it makes sense.
Once you're done with Simplifi's onboarding process, I'd maybe recommend approaching the setup in this rough order:
Set up Categories & Tags
Double-check Historical Transactions (set Payee Names, Categories, Tags, Notes, etc.)
Set Up Spending Plan
Link Historical Transactions to Recurring Bills, etc.
Set up Watchlists
Set Up Savings Goals
Do let the community know if there are any issues you run into along the way. Good luck!
