Feedback for the new Pending Bill Splits section in the Payments tab
The information given for received requests is great.
"Waiting for x payments" instead of “Waiting for payments”, where x is the number of pending requests for the transaction, would be a good way of showing how many people owe for a single transaction.
Ability to cancel sent Bill Splits is important now there is a dedicated section for them. Ability to edit sent Bill Splits would be extremely useful too.
It would be better if the amount next to the Bill Split was “+ < total amount of split still owed >”. Currently the amount shown next to the sent Bill Split is “+ < total amount of split transaction >”, which doesn’t make much sense if you haven’t split the entire cost of the transaction. (ie: Total transaction cost was £20. Transaction is split between two people: £10 with Person A and £5 with Person B. The amount next to the Bill Split would say £15. If Person A paid their split, the amount next to the Bill Split would say £5.)
i love the idea to easy split bills but i hate the fact that friends outside of monzo have to use the monzo.me link, they should be able to pay in what ever method they want, be it direct bank transfer, paypal or what ever and i should be able to mark off a portion of the bill as paid and link it to the transaction that paid that portion
Used bill split for first time in earnest this weekend. Someone paid me in cash so wanted to cancel the request via Monzo and found i couldn’t. Ability to cancel a request should be there IMO. I like to keep my Monzo super clean, not have requests hanging around that are no longer valid.
The bill for one thing was £100. They paid me £50 via monzo. It still goes down in my spending analysis / budget as £100 spent?
If you were making the request yourself then I’d agree with you but wanting to edit someone else’s request seems like an undesirable thing to me. The way I’d expect that to work is that I talk to them and they sort their own request out.
Sadly this was raised when the feature was in labs and was never changed. I’m hoping the imminent cancel feature allows the transaction to be re-split or added to a shared tab but I’m not holding my breathe.
It would be good if we could add tag to payments so that it’s clear to see who paid, regardless of Monzo account (ie. If someone does a simple bank transfer).
Otherwise, when categorising items that are part of a set budget, it would be good if the balace could get updated (ie. Incoming money balancing the expenses), as a work around to my previous poit, if not feasible.
Lastly, it’d be useful to have the ability to amend “friend 1” etc to actual names, for tracking purposes.
Thanks for listening/reading
