Ability to add communal notes + receipts to Shared Tabs & Bill Splits

We need the ability to add (or show) receipts in Shared Tabs and Bill Splits.

My girlfriend and I have been trialing Shared Tabs to split our expenses and we love the convenience but, coming from Splittr, which we love, we really miss the ability to add receipts and notes.

Itemised receipts + notes are essential for validating transactions, especially when they’re weeks or months old and neither of you can remember what was in them. And especially for things like groceries, which involve many items, including some that we’re not splitting with each other.

We feel a bit blind doing it in Monzo without receipts + notes, so we’re sticking mostly with Splittr for now.

Completely agree.

It would be great to have an option to add a and/or receipt to a Bill Split request when you send them.

These notes and receipts could then appear as the transaction reference and receipt when someone accepts a Bill Split request.

This would make things so much easier in managing payments in our situation. Please let’s get some more votes for this. :+1:t2:

This is the single biggest (simple) thing i think is missing. It would just be such a big quality of life improvement.

I’ve just started using shared tabs and noticed that you can’t add notes/receipts. It would make it a lot easier to identify what the actual purchase was.

Please, please, PLEASE can we have this. I’ve been asking for months for the ability to add a note when splitting the bill to explain what the split is for (especially if it is retrospective). It would really help my partner understand what in Sainsburys (other supermarkets are available) I am asking him to send me money for. As it is, he has to keep whatsapping me to ask what I have just requested money for.

Could not agree with this more.

Also, being able to add notes to Shared Tab transactions would let people quickly see what each transaction in the tab was for.

This is a pretty key feature which is painfully absent

We need this! It is a very useful feature which I think should be added, as well as description to pots.

One of those things that when you notice its missing you cant help but think why. Would be super useful

I really can’t believe this still hasn’t been implemented. I have been having issues with this for such a long time now and I really don’t understand why the functionality isn’t there.

First mentioned this in SEPT 2018

You could say that about any number of features that have been requested, or are missing. Sometimes priorities mean stuff gets pushed to the back of the queue.

In my work support system we have some suggestions for improvements going back as far as 2008 which have yet to be implemented! Some have now been archived because the software has moved on so much the improvement has been negated or rendered pointless, whilst some are still awaiting their turn. They may happen :soon:

Completely agree with this, as with everyone else here. Surprised it was requested so long ago and not discussed by Monzo just yet. Since the functionality already exists inside the transactions in the main view, I can’t imagine that the work to copy these labels onto the shared tab view would be so difficult. There are so many scenarios where I see this being useful further to the above
