I thought now would be a good time for me to share something I’ve been working over the last couple of weeks
We’ve been trying to figure out a way to combine some the highlights of the Monzo community and how to bring them to wider community via the app.
Three themes which stood out to me as universally relevant and interesting were -
Community Ideas and Feedback
and these are the areas we’ve focused on for the first version of the community in app feature.
You can check out our early community in app webviews, which we pushed out to < 3000 users as a test here
This is a very (very) early version of how the feature will look, accessible via the Help screen and a monthly feed item update (which you can opt out of!)
The feature is webview based - initially we will build on the Roadmap API to create a place for us to share what we’re working on, sneak peeks of exciting things coming up and ideas we’d love to explore at some point in the future.
You’ll be able to up vote these ‘cards’ and click to view more information and a link to the related discussion thread on the community forum.
To get a feel for how this will work - you can check out a rough mock up of the roadmap here (note, we’ll be customising using our own CSS so it fits with the app seamlessly)
We’re currently building V1 - looking further ahead, we’re hoping to introduce a place for people to give more open ended feedback and ideas and also a polling tool to bring big decisions to the wider community in the most democratic way possible.
Really excited to share the more details as we progress - please feel free to leave any comments and feedback below
