Increase Auto Sync Frequency


Absolutely loving this app, it’s a game changer!

I actually prefer using this app over my bank’s own app to check my transactions as its much faster to get into. Only thing required to make this completely perfect would be more frequent auto syncs. Can you please make this configurable in the user settings?

If you’re on the free tier, I believe you can get more frequent syncing if you upgrade to Emma Pro.

They list a feature of Pro as 4x faster syncing, but I think they actually mean more frequent. Although I’m not sure it’s 4x as frequent. I think it might be 4 times a day with Emma Pro and 2 times a day with Emma Free, so 2x as frequent.

By law, we can do 4 syncs a day max (unfortunately).

In the free tier, we try to do 1 and half, on Pro we do as much as we can.

ps: by law, you can force a sync from the app as many times as you want.

That’s a very unusual law! Any idea why it’s restricted to 4 a day?

It’s not to put a high load of traffic on the banks servers.

This is the regulation: Payment Services Directive - Wikipedia

But can you schedule them? I’d like mine at certain times.

Except this is still broken for me :pensive:

This is something we can plan / work out.

At the moment, syncs work on a queue system, so for us it’s just a matter of increasing / decreasing the priority.

I’ve been on Pro for months but still only get 1 (occasionally 2) syncs for each of my accounts per day. I’m sure it was more than that when I first went on Pro.

Some of the accounts go 24 hours without syncing, too.
