My goal (I’m sure many others are the same) is to, for once, know accurately how much money I have to spend each month/week/day without worrying that a bill hasn’t come out yet - that’s what pots are for after all.
A tremendously helpful feature to help with this would be the assigning of direct debits to certain pots:
Create a pot called ‘phone bill’, schedule £30 to go in each payday.
Take the ‘phone bill’ direct debit, and instruct it to attach to the relevant pot, rather than default to the current account balance.
When DD triggers mid way through the month, the balance is deducted from the pot first (any over-spend would have to come from current account balance).
This way - we can FINALLY end the headache of having a dozen direct debits that come out across the month and wreak havoc on our balance planning.
