Importing your accounts & transactions from Quicken

You can move your accounts and transactions from Quicken to PocketSmith. This will help you get quickly started with PocketSmith.

NB: It appears that the recent versions of Quicken for Mac aren't able to export the transactions in a supported file format.

To start, you need to export your transactions for each account from Quicken, see this article from Quicken for details about exporting from Quicken. Once you have exported all of your accounts from Quicken, you can then import them into PocketSmith using the express migration tool. 

There are 2 ways to reach the express migration tool, one if you have a new PocketSmith account and another if you already have a PocketSmith account. Details on how to find the express migration tool are below or go directly there by going to my.pocketsmith.com/setup/quicken
