A new home for xmerge

Better, easier and a faster way to find xplan code
Sharing expertise, knowledge and experience with Xplan coding and configuration has been a key foundation of Create Something. You only have to look at the multitude of blog entries – many of which were the first of their kind on these topics – through to projects like Kodee the xmerge chatbot, and you can see that giving back and sharing is something that’s not just talk for me.
It would probably surprise people to see the volume of xmerge snippets and coding that was compiled and organised into Kodee. So earlier this year when Kodee went EOL, the question became what to do with all that categorised xmerge? In looking at the data for how people were interacting with Kodee (myself included) the majority of interactions didn’t make use of any of the fancy NLP features Kodee had and instead people were straight up searching for things like “fsg code”. Well you don’t need a high tech solution to solve for that…
Already there is a stack of syntax up there with plenty more still to be uploaded.
The site URL is not only a lot easier to remember but the site packs a powerful search system and has been categorised and organised to allow you to easily find and discover xmerge syntax.
Over time the xmerge articles from here will migrate to xmergecodes.com and Create Somethings posts will focus more on other aspects of Advice Technology such as: digital advice, design, API’s and some of the exciting things we are seeing help drive improvements in Financial Planning practices.
