First test of the bill splitting feature this evening with another Monzo user. It seemed to work well, but I noticed an extra screen that doesn’t seem to have any real purpose other than to write a note, which doesn’t show up anywhere. Seems like it could do with a bit of refinement? This is going to be really hard to explain, but I’ll try.
1st photo is my feed with the transaction on “The Comedy Store” Directly above you can see the payment my friend on Monzo sent me in response to my bill splitting request. It comes with the note “For The Comedy Store” under my friends name (This note can’t be edited unfortunately) It has the comedy store logo next to his picture, this is a nice touch.
2nd photo. The screen you see if you click on “The Comedy Store” transaction itself from my feed. Here we can see the amounts each person paid. If I click on my friends name under the ‘bill splitting’ heading it takes me to the payment I received from my friend. This is the 3rd photo and so far this is logical. This screen can also be accessed directly from the feed by simply clicking on the payment received from my friend in the feed.
4th photo… If you click the ‘linked payment’ test on the 3rd photo, you’d expect to be taken back to the 2nd photo, the original payment, but instead you go to the new mystery screen. Photo 4. This screen is a weird hybrid between the original comedy store payment screen and the payment I received from my friend. The logo is the comedy store, but the name underneath is my friends (hence anonymised). Here we can add a note, but this note doesn’t appear in the main feed and is buried several screens in. What is it’s purpose?
Love to hear other peoples thoughts on this, I hope I explained it well enough. Am I missing something? I’m not entirely sure what the 4th screen is for? What purpose does it serve? I had expected to be taken back to the original transaction when clicking on the ‘linked payment’. The note you can write here doesn’t appear in the feed making it not very useful. Perhaps we could edit the note that does appear in the feed?
