Hiding Pots for [x]amount of time


(Thomas Davies) #1

I love the idea of the Coin Jar topping up my payments and saving without thinking about it. I think it would be great if you could hide your pot&pot transactions for a set amount of time e.g Hide “Coin Jar” for 6 months. Then in 6 months time you get a notification saying “Well done, You have £200” or to that effect. Stops you from checking it and thinking its saving to slow or using the money when it could be saved.

I really like this idea. Probably better to have hide from main view rather than fully hidden, just in case you need emergency access. Really like it though.

I second this idea! I’ve got a savings pot that I am frequently tempted to dip into so if I could hide it that would be fab! Also maybe a good idea if you are saving for a suprise for someone or something like that, hide it so they don’t accidentally see it when your sorting your money.

Another good idea. Would stop me keep putting my hand in the cookie jar!

No need to hide it though, just have it locked from withdrawals, with a set date to expire the lock. An obvious backdoor, if you really need access, would be to have to contact COps to unlock it.

Love this idea… I came on here to suggest it myself!

I would find this so useful. It kind of defeats the purpose having the money so readily available.

The lockable pots feature that is coming soon should help with saving :slight_smile:

Definitely would appreciate the option to put the jar in a cupboard :joy: - No limits or anything put on it, just some form of blackout or ‘hidden pots’ section to store it in. So still the same amount of access, just further from my eyeballs reach!
