Monzo & IFTTT - Feedback Megathread


(MikeF) #208

I’m sure there are but given that’s entirely voluntary, we’re each free to take that decision for ourselves and our personal attitude to risk/privacy.

As an update to myself, this ran at 7am.

My gym visit one didn’t run but I realised IFTTT had logged out on my phone and wouldn’t let me back in. (I think because I enabled 2FA on the website yesterday). I reinstalled it and gave it location permissions so hopefully it’ll run over the weekend when I go again! :crossed_fingers:

Although i have created a workflow to simultaneously trigger 4 rules (move 150 to my travel pot, 100 to my clothes pot, 150 to my entertainment pot and 245 to my rent pot), i’d prefer to be able to set a trigger that says when my salary gets paid, split it over the various pots. Can you please create such a trigger?

:rocket::heart_eyes: This really is brilliant. I’ve activated the following so far:

Now I’ve activated the 1p Savings Challenge, I’m gonna have to catch up; and as I assume it won’t run today as I’ve only just activated, that’s 159 days (£127.20)* to put in :joy:

(I’m gonna cheat and transfer the money from my other savings pot :speak_no_evil::see_no_evil:)

*I used a spreadsheet to work that one out for me. :joy:

Exactly. I doubt Monzo would add my rule below to the actual Monzo app. IFTTT is just to add flavour. The app itself will still get features.


#213

If your other savings are earning any interest I wouldn’t bother

Excellent , some of these applets are so funny :slight_smile:


(Tim Chambers) #215

Negative. They’re just sat in a different pot. I’ll edit the post :wink:

Yeah this new feature its so S**t isn’t it :slight_smile: :slight_smile:


#217

Haha ok.


(Kevyn) #219

Apparently, the ISS orbits the Earth 15.5 times a day so I wanted to keep the savings small until I understand how often it may trigger - is the tigger close orbits or my actual house :sweat_smile:


#220

I think the feature is good and the amount of automation it bring. Now if the market place had a way of using this automation into a savings account that earned interest on your cash using things like the 1p challenge … bring it on, but until then I would use a feature like this for a month then transfer the money out at the end of each month

you could be bankrupt soon :slight_smile:


( related to Monzo CEO, Investor in Monzo ) #222

totally agree see my earlier post with the same conclusion


#223

Haha. I think I read it but my short term memory has failed me :grinning:


#224

It triggers a lot. I ended up turning off the notification that tells me it’s gone over my house!


(Peter Shillito) #225

FYI, there is a delay on renaming a pot in the app and it recognising the change on IFTTT. For a bit I was worried it wouldn’t and might cause complications, but seems all good.


(Jonathon) #226

Just in case this hasn’t been covered yet - what IFTTT can do.

IFTTT actually scares me! There are SO many things you can do I got a little overwhelmed when I first got it!


(Sameer Patel) #227

Can an action be to mark to “exclude from summary”


(Alex Sherwood) #228

Out of interest, which types of transactions would you use that for & why?
