If you’ve started out with one of Tiller’s Google Sheets templates, and invested a lot of time customizing it, but would rather use a different template and don’t want to start over here are your options.

Using the Tiller Budget Features in other Templates 

The Tiller Budget template can be installed into any other Tiller templates via the Tiller add-on for Google Sheets. We DO NOT recommend installing it in the Tiller Monthly Budget template (that has the Yearly Budget and Monthly View tabs). If you install it into this template you will need to maintain your category budgets in two separate places. Tiller Monthly (Yearly) Budget sets category budgets in the Categories sheet for each respective month. Tiller Budget sets category budgets directly in the Budget dashboard in the Adjust cell (column M) or the Budgets History sheet directly. 

Installing the Tiller Budget into the Debt Snowball spreadsheet will replace the Debt Snowball spreadsheet budget dashboard with an upgraded budget dashboard.

Using the Simple Business Features in other Templates 

The Simple Business spreadsheet features can be installed into any other Tiller template via the add-on for Google Sheets.

Add-on Features Installs into Net Worth or Raw Data

Installing the Tiller Budget or Simple Business features into the Net Worth or Raw Data templates require that you manually add the Transactions and Categories sheets to the template first. 

Adding Weekly Expense Tracker Reports to Other Templates

The reports in the Weekly Expense Tracker spreadsheet can be copied into other Tiller Google Sheets templates using the “Copy to” option after right clicking the report tab and pasting in the URL of the target spreadsheet. 

Migrating Debt Progress to other Tiller Spreadsheets 

If you'd like to use the Debt Progress sheet in other Tiller-powered Google Sheets you can copy it in there and add a script to the Script Editor using these steps. You can only add it to other templates that have the Accounts sheet. It is only available for Google Sheets.

Migrating Net Worth Sheets to Other Tiller Google Sheets

We do not yet have the steps to migrate the Net Worth sheets into other Google Sheets at this time.

Manually Migrating Existing Data to a New Template

You can also manually migrate your data between templates if you find that you need to start over or decide to go with a different template, and it’s a pretty straightforward copy & paste procedure. Just be mindful of the column order between the two different templates in the Transactions, Categories, and Balance History sheets.
