Data aggregation is an essential part of eMoney’s planning experience. By connecting their accounts your clients gain a holistic view of their finances while also providing you the information needed to create a comprehensive financial plan.
Today we’ll share a few connection resources that will introduce you and your clients to data aggregation, help you manage advisor and client connections, and maintain updated account data.
The first place to look for resources is the Help section of your eMoney advisor site. By searching keyword Connections, you’ll find user guides, video tutorials, and interactive guided help.
For more information regarding connection setup, common connection errors, and how to report and resolve issues, check out the All About Connections and Connection FAQ interactive user guides. See some of our FAQs below:
How do I add/aggregate accounts from an Advisor Connection?
Once you have an Advisor Connection established, adding accounts is simple. From the Accounts page, click Add Accounts, then follow the Add Accounts Wizard to aggregate your Client’s accounts. For a step-by-step guide to this process, search the Knowledge Base in the Help menu.
