Auto-import your data via email forwarding

What does Auto-import to MProfit mean?

MProfit lets you auto-import your data by forwarding emails that contain your daily contract notes, mutual fund CAS statements & other transaction files.

To fully automate this process, you can set up an auto-forward rule in your email inbox so that any email that contains your trade file will be auto-forwarded to your MProfit account.

With Auto-import, your MProfit portfolios will always stay updated, without requiring any manual effort from you.

How do I set up Auto-import for my transaction file in MProfit?

To get started with auto-import, first log in to the MProfit app from a web browser on a computer.

Upon logging in, click the Import menu option at the top-right. Next, add the template (for which you want to set up Auto-import) to My Templates.

Now under your template in the My Templates section, click the Auto Import button under the template (screenshot below).

A modal will appear on the screen. Follow the steps in this modal to set up auto-import for your template.

If you don't use Gmail, Outlook/Hotmail or Yahoo Mail but would still like to set up auto-import, please check with your email provider or IT administrator to see if it is possible for you to set up forwarding rules in your email.

Step 1: Login to Gmail on a computer device

Gmail does not allow users to set up forwarding rules from a Mobile device.

Therefore you will have to login to your Gmail account on a computer device.

Step 2: Go to Gmail Settings

In your Gmail inbox, click the Settings icon at the top right and click Settings from the dropdown.

Step 3: Forwarding and POP/IMAP

Under Settings, go to the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab and click the Add a forwarding address button.

Step 4: Add forwarding address

Under My Templates in the Import modal, find the template for which you want to set up Auto-import.

For this template, click the Copy Email button under the template.

Now paste the copied email into the Add a Forwarding Address pop-up in the Gmail app. Click Next, and then click Proceed on the pop-up that appears next.

Step 5: Enter confirmation code sent to your email

A confirmation code to verify permission will be emailed to you from MProfit. Please check your email for the code.

Copy the code and paste it in the confirmation code box in Gmail. Next click Verify.

The auto-import email is now successfully verified and you can proceed with setting up the auto-forward rule.

Step 6: Locate the file you want to forward

Go back to your Gmail inbox and find the email containing the file that you want to auto-import to MProfit.

Step 7: Filter messages like this

Open the email, click the "More" button on the right and then click Filter messages like this.

Step 8: Set your forwarding rules

In the subsequent pop-up box, you will be required to set the rule to filter only those emails that need to be auto-forwarded to MProfit.

Helpful tips:

  • Specify a From Email (example:
  • Specify distinct keywords under the Has the words field, that are always part of the Subject for such emails (example: "Digitally Signed Contract Note")
  • Check the Has attachment box to ensure that only emails containing files to be imported are forwarded.

After setting your rules, click Create filter.

Step 9: Link filter to the MProfit template email

In the subsequent window, check the Forward it to box and select the unique auto-import email previously added.

Finally, click Create filter.

Your filter is ready

You will now see the newly created filter in the Filters and Blocked Addresses tab under Settings.

Your files will now start getting auto-imported to your MProfit account.
