Issue: Bank transfers have a reference associated with them. For both incoming and outgoing bank transfers this is displayed on Monzo transaction pages within a ‘reference’ field in the Details section and also in greyed out text at the bottom of the page. Both these fields are not directly editable (which is totally appropriate). The reference also seems to get copied into the editable notes field and becomes the default text within the notes field.
When a user edits the notes field, the reference field and the greyed text at the bottom of the transaction details page also gets edited. The issue was raised several years ago in a feedback/ideas thread and within more general dicussion threads but nothing has been done about it.
I really think it needs to be logged as and considered a serious bug so am reposting in Bug Reports. The transaction reference should be an immutable record of the transaction as it happened, and not modified when a user edits the notes field.
Details to reproduce: Described in the above OS: iOS Device: iPhone SE 2nd gen App Version: 3.67.0

That workaround partially helps (reference field no longer modified) but the greyed out text at the bottom of the transaction page still gets added to. It’s also quite fragile (requires user to remember something that can be easily forgotten) and means the manually added note won’t be seen under the transaction in the transaction list (which puts it at odds with other transactions that have had notes added).
