Still waiting for that all important

if paid by x then move x to pot a, move x to pot b and so on


(James Waddington) #209

and the same for direct debits/regular payments
i.e. if retailer X paid, move amount Y from Direct Debit pot

Thanks very much Kieran - loving Monzo :grinning:

Hi - I’d like to use IFTTT to keep a full running total of my card (including payments and transfers into the account) in a spreadsheet. I’ve set up the existing applet but it only logs purchases. Would it be possible for Monzo to provide a trigger that would fire on ANY new transaction on the card, rather than just purchases? Also, the existing applet logs the amount twice but with no column heading - anyone know what the difference is between those two columns?

It’s not available yet but has been requested before so hopefully it will come soon :slight_smile:

Hi IFTTT experts. Can you advise if this applet I’ve just created might work. I want to move any unspent money from last month into a saving pot. So I did a date/time trigger, using the Monzo service into the savings pot, pretty confident that will work.

In the amount field I specified total - 900, (900 is the value I transfer in). It works mathematically, but will the service recognise the command? There were no error messages to suggest I’d asked something it can’t understand.

Ta.


#214

If you mean will it catch all under the value 900.00, my understand it won’t!
A slight workaround would be to make a few triggers on the same date to each move a less value than the previous. e.g. 500, 250, 100, 50, 20, 10… this way it will move each amount downwards and get you as close to 0 as possible?

Not sure if that helps as a workaround for the meantime before Monzo give a bit more scope.


(Chris Rimell) #215

There is no way for the service to read what your balance is, so all it can do is move a set amount. If there aren’t enough funds available in your account it will fail.


(Matthew Hornby) #216

Not quite Dannytc. I want to move the total value down so there is 900 remaining, but thanks for the consideration. Appreciated.


(Matthew Hornby) #217

Ok, that makes sense from a security perspective. Thanks Chris_R.


#218

Hi,

Is there any way for IFTTT to run on the last day of every month, transfering any available balance (or maybe anything above say £20) into a pot? Like an account sweep available from other banks. I’ve looked at this on IFTTT but can’t find anything.

Thanks


((╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻) #219

Don’t think so. There isn’t a trigger for ‘available balance’ unless you did something super overkill and exported all your transactions to a Google spreadsheet (for example) and worked it out from there.
