So I’m loving the ability to add custom categories to better manage my money, however I’m finding it incredibly frustrating that I can’t remove the original categories that Monzo provide. It seems a bit self obsessed on their part, as though their categories should be adequate for our budgeting needs, however it’s adding confusion!
Also, a few ideas that would make it much simpler…
Rather than the icons/colours being on a sliding scale of sorts, I think it would be helpful if they could appear in a list/grid form. I’m finding myself forgetting which icon I just had in mind whilst I scroll through to look if there’s a better suited one!
Choosing a “sort order” for the categories e.g. alphabetical, date created, by colour etc. As I’ve created a system where each colour represents a type of spending e.g. transport, bills, shopping, expenses and then within that colour there are multiple categories e.g. for transport there are taxi, bus, train. At present, the categories just appear in the order you created them, above the original ones which I find doesn’t satisfy my organisational OCD!
The option to change bulk change categories on previous similar transactions. So if I put a transaction from Trainline in the train category, it would be handy if all other Trainline transactions appeared on the next page, perhaps with a tick box besides them and a “select all” option. This way I can quickly categorise all relevant past transactions without going through each individual one. (I’m fairly sure I recall seeing this facility available on Yolt)
Think that’s all for now!
