Pots - Feedback Thread 🍯

Love the pots, a couple of things I’d like to see would be the ability to move money from my personal current account into one of our joint account pots, and to be able to move around the order of the pots - or have them in date order when they’re locked until… otherwise great :+1:t3:

Heyyy guys :wave:

Some more suggestions for you - specifically on Pots :honey_pot: (I’m running Monzo 2.54.1 #539):

  • When scrolling through pots, a neat way to return to the main Monzo account would be to tap just above the image of a pot (onto the Monzo card peeking out the top) - some fancy jumping to the front animation or something similar would feel right here… I’ll leave that up to you guys :wink:

  • On the Withdraw screen, add an option to Withdraw all, or a percentage slider showing you the amount that would be transferred, e.g I have £85 in my pot and I want to move 50% of that into my current account :credit_card:

I’d also love for Pots on iOS to have a proper transaction feed history - and not just summary.

Same here, it would be so useful!

Not a fan of the pot history/deposits/withdrawals indicators (e.g. green highlighted and plus symbol vs black text and no symbol)

Only just realised…

I just find it confusing that a withdrawal from a pot is shown on the pot history as a plus and in green. Why can’t we just treat the pot history like the normal account transaction list? (i.e. withdrawals are black text, you get the green positive on the main account for withdrawals anyway)

It’s also inconsistent, e.g. interest pots show the interest as I would expect, an addition to the pot with green plus… but withdrawals from the pot also show with green and plus !?

Please change.

I love using pots to be able to set aside money for each different thing such as ‘car tax’ and car insurance. Would be fun to have more Monzo themed pictures - however I do enjoy being able to use my own images for this and making saving more personal.

There’s a load of fantastic Hot Chip themed images made by @ashleymoat which can be used for various pots, get them here; https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipNWXi0C2P_THgsb4RwF1ZUHPnA2_wMXOL9g7gk_Zl85ES19thE-s_ividCiXV_6-g?key=QllRaHkwV012Z0swTWsweXZ6Uzk5NFNhalVyeVdR

Thank you for sharing the link!

Has their been any word recently on being able to assign specific debit card transactions to a pot, or being able to automatically take from a pot when spending at a shop (I.e. spend at Tesco automatically comes from ‘Groceries’).

I feel this would enable true budgeting so that when I get paid it can all be divided into pots, then get spent from the pots where the money has been assigned.

I don’t believe anything has been said about this but there’s a thread on spending from pots currently with 97 votes (remember to add your own): ✅ Debit card pot to pay from / spend from pots / pay from pot (Monzo Plus Virtual Card)

This is possible in IFTTT, please take a look at the following threadys where saving or withdrawing from pots based on a merchant or category has been discussed multiple times:

  1. You can already do this

  2. Just set up the pot with one of the savings partners. 1 working day to get the money back so make sure you don’t lock away all you need

  3. :soon:

I’d like to do this:

I knew someone would have suggested this! Yeah, love pots, but I hate that I can’t organise my pots. Being able to move them around would be great - I could keep them grouped by topic or whether they’re being used immediately or longer term. (Pot for paying my bills immediately after the current account, down payment for a house at the end since it’s a longer-term goal that will take years while I get my ducks in a row.)

Yep - my fixed-savings pots are all dedicated toward a down payment. When the term ends I’d prefer them to go into a specific pot so if I haven’t found a house I can roll them into a new fixed-term pot.

You can change the order of pots

You’ve dug up quite an old topic there. Pots can be rearranged and even hidden now. Search for “reordering pots” in the help section of the app.

I appreciate the tip (I’d found I could hide pots when I went to edit from the Home Screen, but not moving them - turns out it’s just very precise about how you tap to drag it.)

The topic is from January and there are posts from April 2020 saying it hadn’t been implemented yet when I searched. Unfortunately when you search a topic, implementation posts don’t seem to get pinned to the top.
