ClearCheckbook Gadget for Google Homepage now live! [UPDATE]

3/9/2007 in ClearCheckbook Updates
Google Homepage is one of the best places to keep track of pretty much anything you can think of online. Now, you can add ClearCheckbook to that list. We just finished setting up the ClearCheckbook.com Gadget on Google Hompeage!

What this means is you can add the ClearCheckbook Gadget to your Google Homepage and see your account balances without having to log into ClearCheckbook. We also provide you with some quick links to adding entries, viewing reports, jiving/balancing your records and more.

Is this secure? Of course it is! We have generated a 16-32 character string for each member of the site consisting of numbers and uppercase and lowercase letters. You can only access your Gadget by sending that code. Don't worry though, you don't have to manage this. All you have to do to set up your new ClearCheckbook Gadget is log into ClearCheckbook, go to "Tools" and then click on the image of the gadget. Everything else will be taken care of for you.

Try it out and let us know what you think by posting in the comments.

Update: Mar 14, 2007 - I have enabled scrolling on the gadget because some users who have more than 5 or 6 different accounts were starting to get cut off. You'll have to re-install the gadget by following the same steps above. Future updates will not require a re-install.

The only thing that could've possibly made this site any better has now been added. You guys rock!

Cache??
Did you look into the google cache issue? I noticed it takes about 2 hours before the google gadget is updated to reflect any changes.

Just an FYI.

Great feature, thanks!

Remember we can donate to clear checkbook to help defray expenses!

nevermind :)
If I would have just read the whole article and read where it says "All you have to do to set up your new ClearCheckbook Gadget is log into ClearCheckbook, go to "Tools" and then click on the image of the gadget. Everything else will be taken care of for you." ---I would have figured it out! THanks!

It would be nice to be able to select which items go into the total. What I want to know is if my checking account can cover all my credit card purchases, so I want to see checking less credit. I am not as concerned with my overall net worth.
