Looks great…I would like to see the months nested so that they could be expanded and collapsed by year.
I have been informed by our awesome design team that some of the suggestions made in this thread have already been designed and are in the process of being built. No ETAs on this stuff, but here’s a couple more things that should be coming within the next few months
This will be great, it will allow you to set the start and end date for a statement.
Statement from your monthly summary
Direct debit timings
Can I take credit for the second one or did someone else mention this
Direct debit timings
I haven’t got the statement facility nor pulse…
Have you updated the app?
I think this idea makes a lot of sense - I hadn’t even known about the Profile screen until I read about it here, disguised as it is behind an unlabelled arrow. Either way though, I’m really pleased to see that you can pull off individual months in QIF form too. Meets my need perfectly.
Yes Jack I have
Nope - that was me too!
Struggling to see your suggestion
Either way it’s good to see suggestions making an impact to the design / development team.
Just had a look at the bank statement
How about including:
BANK CONTACT DETAILS AND ADDRESS ON THE FRONT PAGE
END OF DAY ACCOUNT BALLANCE AFTER EACH TRANSACTION with a separate IN and OUT COLUMN
Reduce the spacing between lines🙃
Make it appear a little more official rather than a simple print out
Some interesting ideas, how would you use that extra info?
Also, there is no IBAN yet.
That answers the question on IBAN
I want a statement to look like a statement and be a more formal document
When asked to present a bank statement you don’t want to just print out a plain spread sheet
Let’s have a bit more of that MONZO intuition ( by that brilliant team)
How many statement have you used then?
I made my suggestions
Maybe it might be worth looking at a Starling statement
Looks pretty similar to my other bank statements - I actually prefer in and out being in the same column, much easier to read, and I’m not sure why you need IBAN codes etc on a bank statement? That’s the only real difference I can see? Monzo statement much cleaner looking IMO
I haven’t seen a smile statement for a while and it was also the first attempt at dressing down statements made by a bank
But to me that looks a little more professional and if I’m right was also a dress down from statements such as Barclays and HSBC
I think there’s a design choice between (broadly speaking) simple and contemporary, and classic and weighty.
To me, I think Monzo had to go with the former - it really doesn’t work with the tone and ethos of the bank not to design statements that reflects the culture of the organisation.
That’s not to say that some of the additional info wouldn’t be useful (IBAN and BIC in particular when they’re offered), but one step at a time, eh?
(Now, the more interesting question is, with open banking and / or other changes, can we find a way to disrupt the old fashioned paper-based method of proving ID and/or income that statements are usually used for…?)
Can you share a (suitably anonymised) Starling statement at all?
Just imagine a future where lenders (i.e. for a mortgage) simply redirect you to your bank (i.e.Monzo), who then ask you if you want to allow them one-time access to your transactions - and gone are the days of printing a bank statement!
