I’d like to highlight an idea I have only seen mentioned briefly on another thread but seems lost in amongst the other comments.
It would be nice if we could set a target date on savings pots. For example, when you are saving up for spending money on a holiday. You would then set the day of the holiday as the target date and it can track the number of days till you go on holiday and show if you will reach your savings target or not
You could then show this progress to the target date with the same moving vertical line used on the budget progress bars. But with the savings pots the vertical line would progress from left to right as the date draws closer. That way you can see if your saving is on track to meet your target.
The target date field can be optional, if it is not set on a pot then nothing needs to be different. If the date goes over the target date then, nothing needs to happen.
I think that would be enough for an MVP. There are plenty of other things to extend this idea like showing the average amount you would need to save per day/week/month, show the number of days left to go until the target date. Or notifications when it looks like you might be falling behind, or auto transfer of money from current account to savings pot each day/week/month to hit the target etc…
I’d like a feature where you can enter a target date to save your goal amount by, when setting up the savings pot.
Then it will calculate how much you need to put in a month to reach it, a target deposit date, and a variance of how much you have deposited, how much you are behind or ahead by etc.
Would love to see this, more importantly some kind of suggested calculator when setting up the scheduled payment. My biggest effort in setting up a pot is always trying to figure out how much i need to put in per week to hit the goal!
I’m new to monzo, my fiancé and myself have a savings pot for our wedding in our joint acc. It shows the percentage of how much we have saved so far. But it would be helpful If we could set a completion date and for it to show whether we are on track to save the total amount in time. Any ideas?
I’m just checking the community to see if this had been suggested already. Nice idea, I’d go one step further and allow an image to be uploaded. would be great motivation to see a pic of what you’re saving for and them some sort of indicator showing the % of funds to target.
