Direct Access offline for Target

UPDATE 2/15/2021: Our aggregator has been working with Target over the last several months but unfortunately, Target is still blocking their IPs. They will continue to try to re-establish a connection but for now, they are forced to remove support for Direct Access. I know this is not favorable news and we are sorry for the inconvenience. You can use Banktivity’s built-in browser or an external web browser to import your data from Target.

To manually import your data:

Using the built-in web browser

  • Double-Click on the account name for the account you want to set up for Manual/Web Downloads.
  • Inside the popup window that appears, enter the website address for your bank in the “Website” field, then click “Save”.
  • You should now see a listing for your bank in the column on the left side of the Banktivity window under “WEBSITES”.
  • Clicking on the listing for your bank below “WEBSITES” will open your bank’s website within Banktivity.
  • Log in to your account and navigate to the area where your bank allows you to download transaction history.
  • Configure the download options on your bank’s web page correctly to obtain transactions for the dates and account(s) desired. When asked to select a download format, choose OFX (MS Money), QIF (Quicken), QFX (Quicken Web Connect), or CSV.  If the OFX, QIF or QFX file format is available, choose one of those options as they contain the most comprehensive transaction data. If neither of those is available, choose the CSV format. Be aware that Banktivity cannot import investment data from CSV files.
  • Your transaction history should next import into your account in Banktivity.

Using an external web browser

  • Using an external web browser (Safari, Firefox, etc.), log into your bank’s website and navigate to the area where you are able to download transaction history for your account.
  • Configure the download options on your bank’s web page correctly to obtain transactions for the dates and account(s) desired. When asked to select a download format, choose OFX (MS Money), QIF (Quicken), QFX (Quicken Web Connect), or CSV (we recommend saving the downloaded file to the Desktop on your Mac).  If the OFX, QIF or QFX file format is available, choose one of those options as they contain the most comprehensive transaction data. If neither of those is available, choose the CSV format. Be aware that Banktivity cannot import investment data from CSV files.
  • From Banktivity go to File> Import Transactions and select the download file placed on the Desktop then click “Import”.
  • Check the “import into:” drop-down at the top of the import window to make sure the proper account is entered there (change the account if necessary).
  • When completed, you can drag the download file from your Desktop to the trash.

UPDATE 2/2/2021: We have received a new ETA which is set for 2/15/2021. We will continue to post updates here as we obtain new information. Again, we are sorry for the inconvenience we know this is causing.

UPDATE 1/4/2021: We have received a new ETA which is set for 1/31/2021. We will continue to post updates here as we obtain new information. Again, we are sorry for the inconvenience we know this is causing.

Target is blocking our aggregator’s IP’s. They are actively working on restoring connectivity. The current ETA is 12/31/2020. We will update this article when the connection is restored or if there is a change with the ETA.

Sorry for the inconvenience this is causing.
