My something else is to take non payment items such as “x feature is now available” out of the main feed and create a unified mailbox with “admin” type messages. At present joint account users have to go in to their personal account feed to see these. Would be much easier to have a centralised area to see messsges and would also reduce feed clutter


My initial thought is what about having these on both feeds?

And then it was ‘create an uber feed with both personal and joint transactions’.

Do either of these fill you with joy or dread?


I’d personally rather not have them on the transaction feed at all


I dunno, I kinda like having everything in the one feed. I used to find when my legacy bank hid stuff in admin type inboxes that I didn’t bother looking at it.
I think because the non payment feed items are dismissible they aren’t a nuisance to me :blush:


That’s it! :end:

Big thanks to all 215 (wow!) people that voted! :ballot_box:

So it seems that the Monzo community are keen on Pots! :honey_pot: Custom images came out on top with a whopping 46% of the vote, followed by a new layout for Pots in the app.

The good folk of Monzo must have been thinking the same thing as, while the poll was going, they tweeted two very interesting sneak-peaks:

The other gripping* story was the Battle of the Pays! :watch:

There had been lots of calls from Fitbit Pay, Samsung Pay and Garmin Pay users for Monzo to support them. Surprisingly support wasn’t very strong, coming in at positions 33, 34 and 37 (out of 37) respectively. Garmin Pay only had three votes (compared with 12 for Fitbit or 9 for Samsung). What does this mean? Is there genuinely little call for them or might not users of these Pays be using Monzo or on the community because of their absence? :thinking:

There’s also been some interesting ideas in the “anything else” category - hiding balances, better support for switching between joint/personal accounts, history/statements for Pots, packaged accounts, splitting transactions, better notifications… (many of which should really have been in the original list - my bad! :pensive:) - oh and Badger Pay! :badger:

Let’s see how Monzo gets on, then maybe do this again later in the year - it’s been fun!

:mondo: :two: :zero: :one: :nine: :tada:
