Custom Category Creation


I just joined Monzo yesterday and like it so far. I’m very surprised you cant create your own categories though or at least have a greater range of categories.

It should be coming :soon:

I wouldnt say… seems to be very early stages at the moment

Do you use services that can offer custom category creation?

It seems to be the rule rather then an exception.

You might need to do some more reading up on it then :wink: That being said when Monzo say :soon: it could be next year :rofl:

I got the impression from hugos comment on the other thread that it was in the first stage of design but an idea hasnt even been decided yet (either custom or more categories)

To me that signals its months rather than weeks off :blush: therefore i think the use of :soon: is misleading.

Even if it used in the sarcastic monzo way we are all used to now :joy::joy:

Whilst custom categories would be great, as a developer myself I can understand that there would be a lot more work going into that compared the default categories.

However I think adding some more defaults would solve a lot of people’s problems and is relatively low hanging fruit.

Some categories I have been desiring recently.

  • Gifts
  • Sport/liesure - costs me £8 every time I play 5 a side.
  • Takeaway
  • Pub
  • Coffee

Yes!!! “Gift” is one of the main. Categories I am itching for!

e.g. education, exercise, etc.

Personally this would just further exasperate the problem for me.

Id just continue to try and make your suggested new categories somehow fit to a category for my personal needs
