Yeah I was messing with IFTTT and receipts and the only way I could to test was to run it and then see which is rather annoying
Not too experienced with IFTTT statements. But could I make something along the lines of:
- If transport budget not exceeded
- Then put X or remainder into pot
I was completely unaware of IFTTT until stumbling on this thread. Monzo banking is an education!
Also I’ve discovered Stringify to make more complex automations, watch this space
Does Stringify work with Monzo?
I’ll be interested to see what you can create with it
Not directly, but Stringify and IFTTT do work together, so the idea would be to to have more complex flows at the beginning of the automation and then IFTTT would interact with Monzo at the end of the process
That makes sense. Please share whatever you create as I’ll be interested!
From another thread, as might be of interest to people watching this one
TL;DR Monzo still leading the way on IFTTT, but another (new) institution trying their hand at it
So Monzo is about making money work for everybody! Well here is my first take on that using Stringify and IFTTT.
I am making the most of a 2 year interest free on purchases credit card deal, so am adding my daily commute fares to a savings pot automatically whilst actually buying the tickets using the credit card. I have a direct debit set up to pay the minimum payment to the credit card each month and I’ll move the pot money to an account that pays interest and keep building on that until the interest free on purchases deal comes to an end and use the money saved to clear the balance at the end of the two years having paid no interest to the credit card and have earnt interest on money I have to spend anyway.
Martin Lewis calls it “Stoozing!
Check out this Flow from Stringify!
It puts money in a savings pot when I arrive at the station between 06:30 and 09:00 every day!
I hope I’m allowed to post this: https://oliverdunk.com/2019/01/06/monzo-ifttt-swimming
It’s a blog post I wrote about my first Monzo and IFTTT creation.
I guess apilio.io similar to Stringify for being able to extend decision making for IFTTT?
I’m not too familiar with Stringify, but I think you’re right. Stringify seems to include IFTTT, too, so it’s maybe a bit more complete. I do like the simplicity of apilio.io, though.
So will IFFFT work with joint accounts and pots, just upgaded my phone with three getting new iphone XR on monday, and as we get money every week l want to add the the required funds to a pot until the day before it is due to be taken.
I don’t believe it works with joint accounts.
Can you set IFTTT to lock pots?
So say I have a pot called ISA I put X amount in each week and on 01st of the month the pot it auto unlocked (as standard) and i have set the say £50 of the balance to be sent to “My Account” can IFTTT then relock the pot say at midday on the 1st until the 1st of next month and keep it recurring?
No. The set of IFTTT controls was released well before locked pots were a thing so there’s nothing available to work with them I’m afraid.
Please add a Monzo trigger on IFTTT such as ‘Balance Change’ or ‘New Transaction’, I see this has been requested many times since this thread started, clearly its a feature in demand and one that I assume is relatively easy to add?
My main bugbear is the fact everything is card transaction based - you are a bank now, you need transactions that are not card instigated covered in IFTTT triggers - DDs, SOs, Transfers etc!
Can someone make this please?
