Browser extension information
What does it do?

The interface currently has two buttons: a simplified update button and a full update button.
Simplified update button
The simplified button will update the portfolio sheet of your spreadsheet but will not add your shares' expiration dates to the expiration sheet. This faster version of the two and it shouldn't take more than a few seconds depending on your Internet connection.
Full update button
The full update button will update the portfolio sheet as well as the expiration dates of your shares in the expiration sheet. This will always be the slower version of the two. The duration of the update mainly depends on how many transactions you have made in total.
Technical differences between the two buttons
The simplified button will update your spreadsheet with the data that's visible on your Football Index portfolio page. The full update button additionally goes through your transaction history to find your shares purchase dates to calculate their expiration dates and in-play expiration dates.
