No it’s not live yet and when it is it’ll not be mandatory, both banks need to support it for it to work but yes if/when it becomes live then a nickname field will probably be useful
Another reason why having Standing Order nicknames would be good is you would be able to set up a Standing Order with a nickname of your choosing by going through the payee contact rather than typing out the sortcode and account number.
I agree. I have multiple direct debits from the same companies. So it gets confusing. It would be great to have an optional label field which you could fill out that would replace the company name shown in this list. You still keep the official name on the detail screen, but show the custom label/nickname in the list view.
Or be able to add a recurring note which would appear below the Direct Debit name (like normal notes) one the Scheduled Payments section and in the Home feed.
+1 to this, many of my direct debits have little to associate them with the thing they’re paying for (rental, lease, loans etc), a label against each would help alleviate confusion!
I would simply like the ability to change the display name of the DD, or add a note to appear below it. Like notes on transactions
Recurring notes for Direct Debits and Standing Orders, which also appear as notes in the Home feed after a payment has gone out, make the most sense.
More than a year since the last reply, but I stumbled across this thread today, as I had the same idea, wouldn’t it be great to be able to edit/modify / tag the name on a direct debit. As we see more GoCardless or Debit Collections processing for more people, I end up with a list of different Go cardless and If I am lucky, the reference gives away what the items actually is…
Ability to edit/amed names on DD’s to make them user friendly. And if i cant do that a note / tag option to allow some customisation… please… pretty please…
I’ve voted for this because I’m getting confused with the direct debits list in the Scheduled section. I’m seeing direct debits with the same names and publisher names for magazine subscriptions etc. I want to mark which is which.
Would you not be able to link a custom description to the 6 digit BACS SUN of the organisation taking the direct debit?
Edit - of course that wouldn’t help if someone has more than one DD with the same SUN.
