Lots of direct debits out from bills pot today, and not liking the messy feed either, need to have a Avatar on the transaction icon to show which pot it was paid from, this is how round ups is done when you have a designated pot, I remember when coin jar was first released last year the feed was messy with the round up transaction also being in feed, that was cleaned up so fingers crossed!
When money is paid out of my Bills pot, I get a line item on the account page telling me so. I then get another one for the same amount saying that money has left my account. Essentially two notices of the same transaction.
Can we just simplify it to oneline, and use the Bills pot icon to denote where it came from?
I like the ‘double-entry’ as it gives a confirmation that the payment has in fact been covered by the pot.
D/D’s, SO’s & Scheduled/recurring payments that are assigned to be paid from a pot still come from your main account. Paid-from-pot simply deposits the same amount of money from the assigned bills pot into your main account to match the about-to-leave amount to make the payment.
I get what you’re saying here, and I understand that the current system makes it clearer how bills pots actually work, but I would prefer one line if the system works as intended (i.e. transaction fully covered by bills pot) and a notification and/or clearable feed item if it has not worked as intended for whatever reason.
Hi, first time poster, just thought I’d bump this one.
Would love to see this implemented. At the moment it’s just a little messy imo.
A simple “paid from pot” would be so much cleaner and easier to understand. As others have suggested, it could be similar to how roundups are treated, only have the text below the name of the merchant.
To me it makes much more sense for transactions highlighted in green text to only be when it’s money coming from outside of your monzo account.
I’ve only recently started using the paying from pots feature and while it’s a great help for sticking to a budget, it does add a lot of unnecessary clutter to the feed.
I can see some users prefer the current implementation, so it could be a setting maybe?
