Custom Categories - 12

(Bradley) #1

Hi there,

I’m not sure if somebody has already posted this or whether it even already exists on iOS (I’m using the Android app), but it would be great if we could create our own spending categories.

For example, I want to specifically monitor or limit how much money I spend on Coffee or in Coffee shops, so I create a category specifically for coffee, tell Monzo that said purchase (say in a local independent coffee shop) is coffee and then all future purchases with the same vendor could automatically be tracked accordingly.

Another idea (probably already on here multiple times, but i’ll add my interest) it would also be great if we could break down our cash withdrawals into the spending categories and have these reflected on the spending screen too (plus in any future functions such as targets and money pots/virtual accounts).

Have only had my card for a couple of days, but I’m really impressed so far! Keep up the great work!


Just using the search function on here brought up at least 10 other posts titled Custom Categories, so yes it has been discussed before.

I won’t repeat all their comments here but if you click on the frying pan logo above (which looks a bit like a magnafying glass) and search for “custom categories” you will find entries like Custom Categories 2 or Custom Categories 9…as people have duplicated the same idea or posted something similar. It does seem very popular but look in some of these posts for the issues around it and Monzo’s comments


A search will also find posts about “Splitting Cash Withdrawals into Several Categories”
