Love the look of this! :grin: Not for me personally but I can definitely see the merits :tada:

One quick bit of feedback though - I’d love to see a toggle (like Round Up) for a locked / unlocked pot, instead of the word “unlocked”, I think it looks out of place :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Really awesome work Monzo :hot_coral_heart:


It sure it! :grin:

Weird, I’m not seeing it on iOS (latest TF build) :thinking:

So that’s how those views work :wink:

@edwoollard from the Android team gave a great explanation as to why this is :blush:

We also thought about the idea of using a toggle for Pot locking but that scopes us to only having one way to lock a Pot (it’s locked one way or it’s unlocked). If we wanted to add more ways of locking a Pot in the future, we’d have to then change it back rather than doing that now, so we’ve attempted to future proof ourselves a bit. :+1:

Which leads me onto a new, altered, bit of feedback :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Because this was designed with future proofing in mind, I think v1.1 of locked pots should include an option for unlocking once the pot goal is met :checkered_flag:

Now they just need to come up with a way to stop people cheating and reducing the goal once the pot has been locked :wink:

I’m being super organised and have a pot in place for Christmas 2019, so I’ve locked it until 15th November 2019, giving me 11 months to fill it up! Just a shame I can’t put a festive image on it… (hint, hint)


#10

Is it intended use to be able to change lock date after the fact?

I locked until the 16th December, then went back in, and was able to change the lock date to the 14th.


#11

It doesn’t allow me to change the date on my locked pot. Are you using iOS or Android? (iOS for me)


(Only available in amateur ) #12

Won’t let me


#13

On the latest Android Beta


(Daniel White) #14

I’m not getting it on the TF iOS app either


#15

Me neither

So I nearly accidentally locked my food shop pot…could’ve been hungry for 6 months there… :stuck_out_tongue:

Genuinely happy that this has been released. Awesome work guys!!


(Dan) #17

I don’t see it either mate in TF


#18

Take this back. Didn’t realise there was an extra step to save the lock, so my pot wasnt locked anyway! Oops!


(Jami Welch) #19

Hey did you hit save after the first lock date was set? It is only applied once you hit save.

You start your Christmas shopping that late :scream::scream: I couldn’t do it :rofl:
