💡

Plaid is a service to pull banking balances from your financial institutions. Plaid enables FinDaily to import account balances for display within the email template

🔗 Create a New Connection

To get started, expand the Plaid configuration on the Integrations page.

You will see a Connect to Plaid button, clicking this will start the Plaid setup process to link your account.

🔎 Find Your Bank

Using the Plaid dialog, find the bank you'd like to connect to. As accountants know banking integrations can be limited! If you don't see your bank here, it is because it not currently supported by Plaid.

Our upcoming Zapier integration will allow the alternative of loading bank balances into FinDaily via Zapier. This would still need to be a manual process, but you could have an admin pull the balance and enter it into a form for example, and Zapier would load the data into the template.

🤫 Provide Your Credentials

Upon selecting your bank, enter your username and password. Note FinDaily never receives your bank username or password. This information is sent directly to Plaid to ensure your credentials are kept safe.

Certain banks require additional verification steps in order to set up a connection. Once your account is confirmed, you'll see a success screen where you can click "Continue".

🔌 Toggle to Sync Bank Balances

The final step is selecting the data you want to sync with FinDaily. Currently only bank balances are supported.

Open the Plaid configuration once more and toggle on Bank Balances to sync the current balance for all connected accounts each time an email is sent.

Click Update, this will verify your configurations and setup the variables to be available in the Template Editor.
