Hi everyone! I’m an iOS engineer on the Personal Banking Squad and I have a tiny prototype to share with you.
Adding detailed notes and tags to transactions is something I do religiously… And given the small amount of chit-chat on this forum already, I don’t think I am alone…
Currently on the notes screen we have some amusing placeholders and a paragraph explaining why you’d tag a transaction. But once you’ve used tags at least once, we could make better use of the space just above the keyboard.
So we’ve built a tag suggester! As this was a side project for me, it’s only on iOS for now – but hopefully we can bring it to Android soon, if you like it! We’d love for you to try it out by heading to Labs and turning it on.
The tag suggester is a new scrollable list of tags helps you use consistent tags (no more wondering “did I use #HairCut last time or #haircut?” ) and also tag much faster. Simply type your note then tap one of your existing tags. As you add new tags they’ll start appearing in the list too.
This is just a quick prototype – but we’d love to hear if you think it’s useful so we can invest a little more time in it. We’d also love to hear a little more about how you use tags in general:
- How do you use tags?
- If you’ve got Monzo Plus or Monzo Premium, how do you use tags? (if you still do!)
- How does the tag suggester perform for you? For example, if you have 1000s of transactions do you notice a momentary delay when loading this screen?
- What are your thoughts on the order of the tags in the new list?
Let us know what you think! If together we stumble onto a great feature here, we might invest a little more time in it, and bring it to Android too.
