Excel is making it much easier to keep on top of your finances with a new feature, dubbed Money in Excel. If you’ve ever used or heard of budgeting services like Mint, or even Microsoft’s old Microsoft Money service, then Money in Excel will feel familiar.
Money in Excel can connect to your bank and credit card accounts to automatically import transactions and account balances. Once the data is imported, you can easily drill in on your spending habit, and Excel serves up insights into how much you’re spending on different categories. You can also get proactive alerts for things like price changes for recurring payments, overdraft warnings, and more.
