Polish Party 💅

Afternoon Community :wave:

Thought this may be of interest to people on here, we posted this on our Making Monzo Twitter account also.

Once a month, teams across Monzo get together for a day to work on small fixes and delightful features. It’s called a Polish Party :nail_care:

Here’s everything that came out of this month’s Polish Party :arrow_heading_down:

We’ll start including a subtitle on automatic Pot withdrawals, showing which Direct Debit it pays. (Soon)

We removed the “Current month to date” option in your statement history. It’s redundant since you can pick the current month below anyway.

We’ve increased the number of emojis you can use to say thanks! :raised_hands:

We’ve updated your statement filenames. They’ll represent the dates they’re for, instead of the date we generated the statement. (Coming soon!)

We’ve updated the words in the screens you’ll see when switching to Monzo. We’ve made it clearer that you can’t switch from a joint account to a personal account.

We’ve explored (but not built) a new way to show you how much of your international ATM withdrawal allowance you have remaining. Feedback welcome!

And we’ve removed “Details on ATMs” from the transaction screen of an ATM withdrawal. The information wasn’t relevant anymore.

Is this the kind of update we’d like to see more as a Community? :thinking:

The statement naming thing is so little but makes such a massive difference.

Do you have some app parity polish in the cupboard :thinking:

You could have a go at logos and names fixing on one of those days. This might be a useless feature for many but for a lot of people it’s been an annoyance for literally years now.

Not gonna lie, did read the title as Polish (the country) party rather than Polish (cleaning) party :sweat_smile:

Good to see work going on with those little things :slight_smile:

An absolutely fundamental part of what a bank should be doing.

Shame they don’t put this much time and effort into something people actually want like merchant data being fixed

@AlanDoe Will the automatic pot withdrawal subtitles for direct debits be applied to previous transactions or just onwards from implementation?

Hey, the way the change works is we’ll start annotating pot withdrawals with the transaction_id of the bill payment they were withdrawn to cover. Then when rendering the withdrawal we pull additional context from the referenced transaction.

To apply this historically we’d need to identify and annotate all previous bill withdrawals (of which there are millions). This probably won’t be practical - so the change will only apply going forwards, but I’ll have a play and see whether it is :slightly_smiling_face:
