(Colin Robinson) #584

Very quick post but could we please please please have a category for pets, I e very keen on categorising my spends but the only think I can’t allocate properly are things I purchase for my little fury one ! PLEASE MONZO

I tend to tag anything pet related using the family category. After all they are part of my family :heart:. Would that help?

Alternatively you can use hashtags in the notes field as a work around.

Why was this comment flagged? Hmm

Whilst i dont agree completely with it i dont think there is anything that deserves to be flagged

Custom categories would really help me! I want to know how much I spend on coffee, how much I spend at the gym, how much on cat food (well, I would if I had a cat) etc… I’ve tried using the tags, but they’re just too cumbersome. I need something quick and easy.

Custom sub-categories as well as custom categories would be prefect!

I hope Monzo agree…

A Christmas or present category would be good, to track how much you spend on presents etc

I’ve met many who share the sentiment. Something something future business model something. But it definitely sucks for the user.

I agree.

Unfortunately this thread seems to suggest that Monzo doesn’t listen to it’s customers. This has been a top request for two years and they’ve constantly refused to implement it, citing various unrelated reasons that don’t make sense, and certainly aren’t a good reason to not allow custom/renamed categories.

Come on Monzo, stop penalizing your users for your own internal reasons. Everything else is good, I’m sure you can work it out.

I myself am quite happy with the existing categories but hashtags has to be improved in two ways: 1. It has to auto populate existing hashtags you’ve made (much like apps like Day 1 do) and 2. there has to be a way to look into a hashtag similarly to a category, e.g. total spending on that hashtag, list of all transaction on that hashtag - I myself want to use it to track spending over long periods of time and often forget what I used as a hashtag and I don’t know how’s to look up what I’ve previously used. Please fix this. Thanks a bunch.
