Account Tracker PRO – importing CSV files

January 2, 2020 Comments off

atp57 I am adding an import wizard, to make it a lot easier to import arbitrary CSV files. It still needs a recognised date per transaction, but you can then assign columns to any field.

If you regularly import CSV files from your bank and would like to try this out to give me feedback, I would be happy to add you to my Test Flight beta testers list. Just drop me an email from the contact page.

Alternatively, please send any sample CSV files you might have. Feel free to cut them down to just a few transactions, and you can change the amounts to 0 if you want to keep things private. It is the format more than the data I am interested in.

Added options to quickly display maps of each list directly from the Hill Lists screen. Just swipe right to left across any list.

Added an additional map option here, to show all unclimbed hills in tracked lists (shown in grey) with unclimbed hills in the selected list (in red). This is useful if you are focusing on one list but want to see other hills of interest nearby.

Moved the MWIS links to a separate section on the settings tab.

Added a setting to automatically sort tracked lists by their unclimbed/to do counts.
