How have you achieved this?! I’ve got the IFTTT action on a page right now but it’s asking for a specific amount. I want it to figure out how much the transaction was & move that same amount out of the pot. There’s a list of “ingredients” which make no sense to me as they’re just variable names… Any help much appreciated dude
Dan is most likely using the “Any card purchase at merchant” trigger – and then using the “Move money out of a pot” action with the “AmountInAccountCurrency” ingredient.
That’s what I do.
Not sure if this has been mentioned before but I’d love to see an option to “fund” a transaction from a pot. I often end up shuffling money between accounts and pots.
For example, I have a pot for “house renovations” and I’ve just spent £50 in B&Q, marking that transaction as “funded by” my “house renovations” pot would:
- transfer the transaction amount from the pot to my account
- mark the transaction as “excluded from summary”
- log it against my pot activity somewhere (pot spending in summary?)
This would be especially useful for joint account pots - so if you spend on your personal account you could refund yourself from a joint pot.
What do people think?
