Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but I find the categories quite restricting. It would be great if they could 1) be expanded on to include this like grooming, drinking etc and 2)you could add your own categories and assign retailers to these categories so the cost is automatically recognised under the right heading.
Please make it (or have the option) that any transaction in the expenses category does not contribute towards your spending for that month. I had to buy something on behalf of someone which was quite expensive, then they paid me back. Now it looks like I massively overspent for the month which is not true. Thanks a lot!
Wouldn’t it be great if I could easily see how much each Monzonaut within a specified group of friends had spent on various transactions after a night out together / weekend away, and then easily calculate how much each person is owed and by who?
Don’t know if this has already been mentioned, but its a common annoyance trying to work out who owes who how much, and more complex than just the Uber-style fare share because of multiple different transactions. Thanks!
Okay, I have some ideas which I thunk wold be really helpful!
Online portal, so I can see what I see on my phone on my computer.
Transfer money out of monzo. So say I top it up £50 every week, at the end of the week, the remainder of the initial top up is transferred to either a separate account or back to my bank account.
Split items. So, if I’m buying something on Monzo, and want to split it, have a button on the transaction, where I can send a monzo.me link, and when the person pays the specified amount, it comes off my spending total - so only my share of the payment is counted on in my monthly spending report.
For those who didn’t receive the monthly journal update, we’re now adding our favourite community suggestions weekly! Find out how to get involved here.
On that note, we’re still working on improving e-mail deliverability for the monthly Journal newsletter In the meantime if you have a Monzo card, but haven’t received the newsletter and would like to, DM me with your e-mail address so i can be sure you’re on the mailing list!
Not sure if this is something you’re looking for, but you can specify ‘this month’ or ‘last month’ etc and select multiple merchants to give you a breakdown. At the bottom of the screen is the costs, with export ability.
Apologies if you’re on Android as this iOS at the moment. Android is coming though
I’ve just looked at the board and noticed 2 of the ideas could actually be combined into 1 idea…It’s the replacement card is on it’s way idea where they basically want to not miss payments and the privacy.com style OneUse card idea…why not have a virtual card for subscriptions so if you do lose your card then your subscriptions don’t go out of sync…additionally you could maybe limit the merchants who can debit from it (not sure how feasible that bit of the idea is)
