Both me and my partner have two monzo accounts - a joint account and our own separate accounts. Both of us have accidentally set up a pot for our joint account, but meant to set up a pot for our separate solo accounts.
For anyone wondering here is a screenshot of how you create a pot for each account.
What would you’re ideal solution to this @chrissydonaldson?
I’d like to see Joint accounts made into a separate account type like Business where you switch that way, completely segregating them
“Create a Personal Pot”
“Create a Joint Pot”
Its almost too obvious… surprised its not been thought of before lol
I could live with both of those, great suggestions!
There could also be a ‘create a pot’ button somewhere amongst the joint account or personal account menus that automatically creates the appropriate one depending on which account you’re looking at.
It is a bit odd that both the OP and their partner scroll past the personal account pot button and hit the joint account one each time I’d understand more if it was the otherway round
Could have turned on Joint Account First in Labs maybe?
Ohhh, that would explain it.
Never thought that it would switch the order of the menu items too
Oh i don’t know if it does do that or not! Just speculating.
I don’t have a joint account so I can’t test it, we haven’t opened one because of the fact its on the same home screen, it would bother me, i already get annoyed with the extra buttons at the bottom that don’t affect me, if they switched to the account switcher like for business then we’d open one in a heartbeat.
I have a joint account and it is fairly well separated. I assume by home screen you mean that if you scroll through all of your pots it then appears? I do get what you’re saying though as I also have a business account.

I guess I’m used to it now so I see no issue but I’d still be open to giving it a go.
You need a personal account for a business account
I’m used to it but still accidentally always make a pot on my personal first and then delete and recreate on my joint every bloody time The simple text change suggested above would solve it for me
Oh yeah of course you do, what am I talking about my apologies I’ll edit that out.
I got confused with the fact that you can’t tap a button to move money between the two accounts like you can with personal and joint.
I see it the joint account options above my solo account options on IOS app - I obviously don’t read the headings!
I do have ‘show joint account first’ turned on in Labs.
I would prefer to see ‘create a pot’ and ‘earn interest on your money’ etc options simply listed once and then when you click ‘create a pot’ it asks you explicitly what account you’d like to create a pot for. Less scrolling too! I could see it getting a little unwieldy if you have a personal, joint and business account on this screen.
