I’v posted this on an old thread which was maybe about a lightly different issue so here it is all by itself
So… I get paid on the 25th and have an amount move into a ‘pocket money’ pot.
What time will the scheduled transfer take place? Will it happen after the BACS payment of my wages?
Every Friday, an amount is scheduled to withdraw from ‘pocket money’ into my available balance, if the 25th is a Friday, which transfer will occur first?
The monthly amount TO the pot, or the weekly amount FROM the pot?
Pot withdrawal now dealt with by ifttt, triggering at 7am on Fridays. Problem solved.
Think this is an example of where the ifttt affiliation works wonders. While this caused an issue for me I have no doubt that its far too small an issue to commit resources to so its great that users have the option to tailor a solution to suit themselves
It was pay day today and my IFTTT automation worked a dream.
• I had my salary come in
• Standing orders go out
• Savings into my savings pot
• Bills money into my bills pot, then this will automatically move back to my main account when the bills are due.
• Disposable into my pocket money pot, then a fifth of that back into my main account. This will happen weekly up until my next pay day.
Feels good to have complete control of my budget for the month.
