Microsoft Money in Excel

In March, Microsoft announced a number of new features for Office 365 subscribers — one of them being Money in Excel feature. Money in Excel is a new add-in for consumers to manage, track, and analyze their money and spending. Users can connect their bank accounts and credit card accounts to Excel by following a few simple steps and Excel will take care of the rest. Microsoft is relying on a fintech startup called Plaid to securely connect user’s financial accounts, import the data within them, sync balances and transactions over time.

Microsoft today announced the general availability of Money in Excel feature to Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscribers in the US. Here’s how you can access this new feature.
