Sharesight release notes - July 2019

Sharesight release highlights for July 2019:

Portfolio Tracker Functionality

  • Added a new ‘Interest charged’ transaction type for manual cash accounts.

Sharesight Usability

  • Significantly improved date picker rolled out to all reports.

  • Optimised instrument search on the Add Holding form for mobile devices.

  • Added ‘In this calendar year' option to the list of predefined date ranges.

Broker Transaction Import

  • Added support for the new format Pattersons Trade Confirmation Emails.

  • Improved support for Jarden Trade Confirmation Emails to cover bonds and international trades.

  • Improved support for Commsec International Trade Confirmation Emails to handle multiple buys and sells on the same document.
