Pots - Feedback Thread 🍯

(Brexit Day Is Gonna Be Shamayzing.) #5


Schedule movement of money from Main to a pot. I have this on Starling and it works great, day after payday its split into the 12 or so “Goals” that I have. Increase the number of pots from 10.

Also agree with the DD etc… straight from a pot.

We have had plenty of feedback for pots already. It’s got to be time for delivering on some of those items before asking for even more feedback or duplicates of what has already been mentioned

(Richard Cook) #8

We hear you! And we haven’t forgotten those threads.

I’m just starting to build up posts in the Feedback board (which will become fuller as we launch new features).

I would prefer a compact view at the account screen (no image, plus/minus buttons without text)

I could probably easily go over 10 pots when rules come in (unless pots could have multiple saving goals)

I love pots, my top 3 things for pots would be:

  1. Rules!
  2. Allow a custom image for the pot
  3. To be able to sort / re-arrange pots

Assign a savings goal to a pot, able to sewt up auto transfers to various pots, e.g. on payday, money get split around to the various pots for long term goal and bills etc. Then on last day of the month before next payday, everything left over in main account goes over to another pot. Also the ability to upload custom pictures as the pots icon. Change the accounts page UI, make each pot appear as a smaller icon just displaying its current balance you then click through that to get to the add/withdraw buttons.

  1. Change round up rule
  2. More compact view
  3. More or custom pics
  4. Interest
  5. Option to lock a target date so I can’t withdraw from that pot until the date is reached.

This seems very legacy bank like. Why would I bother having money in pots that don’t earn interest or prevent interest from being charged. I would be as well having extra cash in savings accounts elsewhere.


Interest on pots would be enough to scribble of “no interest” as one of the main things stopping me from switching. It’d be better than nothing and still all within in the same account/app.


Many Monzo customers wish to use pots just like this not as savings (as they can get interest elsewhere) but to ring fence funds they know they are going to spend for certain expenditure such as a big direct debit in order to prevent it being spent

Being able to auto add money to pots every month would be awesome.

Also the screen with the pots listing needs to be reworked. When you have.more than a couple.of pots you end up scrolling down a lot to see all the pots. It makes it difficult to see how much money is in each pot and over all.


In the absence of joint accounts the ability to share a pot is essential if I am to fully commit to Monzo. Apologies if this is already planned but I am surprised it isn’t already implemented.

Is it just me or does the ‘create pot’ button on the target page seem random? Congrats, you were on target with your spending…create a pot? :thinking:

(Alex Sherwood) #19

To enable users votes for features to be counted, please vote for the new Pots functionality that you’d like Monzo to add here -

(Rob) #20

Still be nice to get interest

I’d love like a sweep to be available for pots. So say the current account balance goes to £500 any excess can sweep across to a pot. I do it manually weekly because I limit myself to X amount a week and the rest of the money I don’t use at the end of the week is going into a pot to go towards holiday spending money

Sweep to a savings pot?

I love the pots idea. What would make it next level amazing is if you could assign automatic allocation rules that move transactions.

For instance, my flat mates pay me for he rent, from which I pay the landlord in a lump sum. You could configure rules based on who sent money and the reference supplied.

In addition, I also pay direct debits with this pot, so I should be able to create rule assigning all direct debits from Thames water to be taken from this pot.

Is it an okay idea? Swish or no swish?

Adding my voice to:

  • Automated transfers to pot

  • Round-up debit card entries to nearest whole pounds and the ‘change’ to go into a pot

  • Auto sweep of residual balance at payday.

  • Auto sweep of any balance over a set amount into pot

  • Target amounts for pots - with a percentage of how close I am to it on the pot icon.

I echo the above - it would also be nice to upload our own images for the pots.
