Account disabling / Version History

Oct 30, 2023

🎃 Happy Halloween, Fina family!

As usual, we still have a bunch of exciting updates to share with you!

  • Accounts
    Now you can disable an account if you want to exclude it.

  • Transactions table size
    For the small screen, Fina used to cut off what it should display, now we have introduced a horizontal scroll bar if needed.

  • "Category Expense" Block
    We have added two options in the settings of this block: 1) compare to a category budget and 2) compare to an income category budget.
    The first option will display how much remaining current expenses are from its own budget set.
    The second option will display how much percentage current expense is taking of a selected income category.
    Thanks for the idea, @Farooq!

  • Categories
    Categories tab is one of the core surfaces that our Fina users use the most, we will continue improving this surface.
    1. Enhanced Drag & Drop: drag & drop a category to another place made easier, and now you can drop it to the position you want within a group.
    2. We have disabled the default sorting by income/expense amount, so that you can keep your category tree in the order you designed it to be. In the future, we will introduce extra options to allow you to sort them.
    3. Snapshots: you can save the state of your categories and rules into a snapshot which you can restore to it later in case something is messed up after that. Up to 3 snapshots are allowed and you can rename each to help you memorize what they are!

Category Page Updates

Oct 12, 2023

  • Rename a Category
    Before the support - all transactions may become uncategorized if you rename a category from X to Y. Now, renaming should smoothly attach all transactions to the new category name when you rename. Tell us how it works for you through Feedback.

  • Audit Rules
    After some time, you may have created a bunch of rules to categorize your transaction data, and some of them may become obsolete, we introduced a new Audit button on the Rules page, it will highlight the rules that are not working anymore, you may want to clean them up.

  • 💥 Predict Budget
    Now, Fina provides a one-click button to predict your budget value for each category: when you hover over a category item, a shortcut will show up by the side of the budget input, click it and Fina will predicate your budget based on the past few months expense, try it out and let us know how it works for you!

  • (Better) Drag & Drop
    At Fina, we always take step by step to improve the experience. Now we offer a better indicator of drag handle

  • Sort by Name
    Expense by Category the block is so far the most popular one in Fina - please open the block settings menu to check all the options we have added:

  • Along with Budget: display budget side by side with expense

    • Group only: instead of displaying individual categories, it rolls up everything into group level only, categories in root will be aggregated to (ungrouped).

    • View as Card: tired of list view? Try card view!

    • Sort by Name: by default, categories are sorted by their expense amount value, this option will sort it by name in alphabetical order instead.

  • Drag & Drop category
    What makes it difficult to re-organize your category list? I heard people say they have to delete and re-create if they want to move the category around.
    Now, you can just drag and drop!

  • Ungroup
    Now, you can also click the "ungroup" icon on a group to ungroup it, all categories and the group itself will become plain categories now just under the ROOT.

  • Simple Calculator
    We are revamping the simple calculator to get ready for complicated computation with variables, before that, we will keep polishing the calculator to make it work better. Check it out and let us know how it feels... Stay tuned for more!

UX Improvements / Time Zones

Sep 26, 2023

  • Time Zone
    More on transaction timezone: have you ever noticed some of your transaction dates are one day off?
    We have tried our best to recognize the accurate time when there is a signal to tell 1) Time zone info and 2) Transaction type.

    However, the reality is much more complex than we can handle gracefully, because all banks may behave differently. Some banks send UTC time while others send their local time. Fina has no way to tell you how to adjust your time correctly in those cases. So now, we introduced Time Zone settings for each account, where you can set it up by Edit Account menu item on each account's option menu. Note that, one connected bank shares the same time zone settings across all associated accounts, so regardless of what account you edit, the Time Zone value applies to all.

  • Transaction Time
    Some users noticed Fina uses post date for transactions, however, different merchants (and banks) post the records at different times. So we are trying to bring your transaction time as close to the time you made the real-life action, regardless your bank uses UTC time or your local time. Let us know if you see a more aligned transaction time for your Fina transactions.

  • Unique URL
    We have added the unique URL for each profile, as well as its sub-pages: accounts, transactions, and categories

  • Keyboard
    We have improved transaction categorization more for keyboard-only users, now if you type something not existing in your category, you can use the UP/DOWN arrow to navigate and add a new category, and you're able to choose a group for the newly added category as well.

Transactions Updates

Sep 16, 2023

  • Transaction List
    Transaction lists are now available on many surfaces. Whenever you want to drill down a number, a transaction list will show up as a side drawer.
    For example: an "activity" icon will appear by a category, no matter if you see them in a page block or categorization page. Going forward, you will be able to see them by the side of a "Merchant", or more. What is your "drill-down" scenario, please file a request using the "Bugs & Requests" link.

  • Change log bell
    The change log menu will display a bell if we have updates as fresh as less than 24 hours. We would like you to take a look at our active updates.

  • Categorization optimization:
    We display all your categories in the Category column under the Transactions tab, but based on the current transaction, either expense categories or income categories will show up at the top of the drop-down list. Of course, you can always type and search.

Amex Connectivity Improved

Jul 26, 2023

  • AMEX connectivity improvement
    "We’ve made improvements to our AmEx integration and believe that the issue reported here is no longer affecting users with MFA settings that do not require perpetual multi-factor authentication.
    Please note that this will continue to be a known issue/expected error for users who have perpetual multi-factor authentication set up on their account, an MFA type we do not support, as it prompts the user for an OTP code on every login, preventing our automated updates from collecting account data.
    Additionally, Plaid has reached a data-sharing agreement with AmEx on Jun 8th and will be building out an OAuth integration for American Express. Once this effort is complete, we will migrate existing AmEx Items over to the new OAuth integration."

    If you previously encountered a connection issue with American Express, now it's time to give it another try and see if it works now. More improvements on American Expression will come live soon.

  • Fina Site Connectivity
    In the last few days, we have actively working on improving reliability and connection stableness on Fina. We think we have fixed some large issues that caused connection loss before. Hope you experience a much smoother Fina now, if you have an issue, please don't hesitate to contact

  • Reliability of changes saving.
    Some of our users experienced the issue of "changes loss", though different reasons may cause a similar problem. Our previous architecture has some problems allowing this to happen. Now, we have revamped the way to save your changes, we use more frequent subtle server requests in exchange for more incremental updates, we believe this will help a lot if you have had such an issue before. Please contact support if you still have the issue, love to look into your case.

  • Multi-profile readiness
    Many users have asked for a multi-profile feature, and we have made an effort to bring this feature to real soon. Currently, we're looking for initial feedback and pilot users, if you are interested in multiple profiles, please send a simple email to, and I'll reach out soon.
