I've had trouble connecting accounts in the past via the log-in option and would like the option to add them via routing+acct #s like most banks allow. thanks

    @CoreyBarger,

    I love the idea of this, but can’t imagine it would even be possible due to ever increasing online bank security measures.  If Simplifi says this is possible, I’m all for voting for this idea!

    I authorize payments this way, routing # and account #, but does this actually creat a link that you cn transfer account data over?  I thought this was basically an electronic check kind of thing and not a database transfer kind of thing.

    @DannyB I have one specific acct I can't get to work on Simplifi so I tried asking said account if they could help. They were the ones who told me connecting this route would work for "3rd party apps/budgeting software" . I def stole the idea to post here and assumed it was a viable solution but they could be wrong. You've def asked a good question.

    Very interesting.  I'll keep an eye on this to see where it goes.  I added my vote.  In the mean time, I know it's less then ideal, have you tried importing your account data for this institution via CSV file?  Here is a link on how to do that.

    Every person you write a check to (a paper check) gets a copy of your routing and account numbers...  Do you think getting access to your transaction history should be given to anyone you've written a check to?

    I voted no.

    This option works in [removed].  I wish it would work for Simplifi as well.
