Newsletter - August 2021

Jenny Chiu

In this month's newsletter, learn about our newest product features, register for our upcoming OAuth migrations workshop, and learn more about how Plaid improves consumers' experience with fintech apps.

Product Highlights

Categorization improvement for payroll transactions: We recently improved the recall rate for payroll to 92%. We achieved this by building and introducing a platform that enables Plaid to use context from an item’s entire history—rather than single transactions in isolation—to better predict transaction categories.

Consent pane branding for Link: The recently updated Consent pane enables you to feature your own branding. Incorporate your branding quickly via the dashboard.
