Open the Extensions menu > Tiller Money Feeds > Sign in to Tiller
Sign in to the add-on using the account you used to sign up for Tiller (it can be Google or Microsoft)
Click “link sheet” in the sidebar
Choose the accounts you want to feed into the sheet and click “Confirm”
If you’re building your own templates for Tiller Money Feeds you may want to check out the Builder’s Reference on the Tiller Community.
If you're starting in a blank sheet the Tiller Money Feeds add-on will add a Transactions, Balance History, and Categories sheet. Note: The Categories sheet built by Tiller Money Feeds does not include monthly budget columns that are default in the Foundation template.
