Saving you manually recording trades into your Sharesight portfolio. Sharesight Connect provides a direct electronic connection to the broker.
Note: Access is granted on a per portfolio basis. If you have several online broking accounts, you could connect each one to a separate portfolio or you can have multiple connections to a single portfolio - the choice is yours.

Monitoring transactions that are recorded into your portfolio via Sharesight Connect
By default, Sharesight will send you an email each time a trade is recorded in your portfolio via Sharesight Connect. This email confirms the details of the trade that has been created and contains a link to view this trade in your Sharesight portfolio.
You will also receive an email containing an appropriate error message if Sharesight has been unable to create a trade that has been sent to your portfolio via Sharesight Connect. Errors include things like invalid share codes or sell trades that would result in a negative quantity within your portfolio.
You may opt to disable email confirmations so that you will only receive an email when an error has occurred or you can disable the email notifications entirely. This setting can be found on the settings tab for the portfolio.
Options to enable or disable the email notifications can be found under the Sharesight Connect heading (this heading is only visible when you have established a connection).
If you no longer wish to provide an organisation access to your portfolio, you may revoke access at any time. In Sharesight you can to this via the ‘Sharesight Connect’ option on the settings tab. We encourage our Sharesight Connect partners to also provide an option to revoke access within their own systems as well.
