Pots - Feedback Thread 🍯

There’s a thread for that already linked here :slight_smile:

Hey Scott!

This is definitely a popular concept (and I think it’s a really worth while idea). I believe the product team are aware that people like the idea of a round up rather that a cluttered feed :+1:

I’m glad you’re enjoying Pots in general though, it’s something I love as well!

omg i thought i was the only one. i hate the name too. pots sound soooo bulky

Agreed agreed agreed agreed. We should be able to customise our pots

  • Ability to lock a pot till goal is met (could have a fine to beak in early - customer sets fine amount)

  • DD to pots

  • Upload picture to pot

Some good news for everyone who wasn’t happy with the location of Pots - @zancler’s just shared a preview of the redesign of the Spending tab on Twitter & they’ll now be in the Spending tab :boom:

Thanks for sharing on! Worth mentioning this is still certainly a work in progress and liable to change, but we will 100% be showing Pots here :slight_smile:

Looking good! Can you share any thoughts about what this means for Pots in the Account tab going forward?

As part of this revamp will there be the predicted recurring payments? Netflix etc kind of bills that are not direct debits but are every month?

There should be, that functionality was shown in the first preview of the redesigned Spending tab -

Breakdown

I would LOVE it if I could schedule a monthly payment from my current account into each of my pots.

Right now I have a pot for christmas presents, and one for holidays, but I often forget to put money into them (I use Google Calendars :calendar: to remind me). If I could set up a way for Monzo to automatically transfer money into each of these pots on a certain day of the month, I wouldn’t have to worry about accidentally spending the money!

Would be amazing if you could do this :slight_smile:

Cheers

Is their plans in place for people to see incomings / outgoings for each pot rather than across Monzo as a whole?

Not sure when notes on pots was added but thanks! Really helpful

But noticed when I searched Coin Jar the info at the bottom is really confusing. Spent means what’s gone in and received is the rounded up version of what I’ve transferred out of it. Think it needs rewording (and not rounding up)

I would love to see a similar to pre-paid card option linked to a pot (one card per customer?). Attach it to a pot as that pots spending money.

This way I would take that card with me on nights out, knowing I am limited to the funds in that pot (and can transfer in app if need be), or to use to separate monthly spending money knowing my Direct Debits will still be fine in my main account.
I know there are plans already to have Direct Debits come out of specific pots, but this in reverse could also work well, bills out of the main account and spending funds in a pot that can only be spent using the ‘additional card’.

Just my thoughts (recovering shopaholic needing to budget better haha).

Please let us do the following:

  • reorganise pots on the accounts page, so we can get to pots we use more often. Alternatively you could implement a list view as well.
  • transfer smaller amounts to pots, at the moment we can only transfer £5 minimum.

Thanks

I’d like the ability to hide certain pots.

It’s harder to spend what you don’t know you have :wink:

I’d love to have direct debits come straight from pots - specify what payment should come from what pot.

Or at least have my direct debits hidden from my available balance

Not sure if this has been asked for before, but could we possibly have something like this for pots when there is a goal you’re heading for?

I like how Nationwide show you how much you’d need to deposit daily, weekly and monthly to meet a goal by a certain date!

or lock the money in there until a future date say 6 months time
