Uneditable transfer details section on Android for bank transfers + ✅ adding notes on iOS bank transfers

Thought I’d create a separate topic for this now that voting has been enabled for stuff in the “Feedback & Ideas” section.

It’s really frustrating to not be able to add notes to external transfers on iOS. However, I think the bank details section currently on iOS, but not on Android, is really useful.

So this is my feature request:

  • Have a “Notes” section for external transfers on iOS (incoming/outgoing Faster Payments & Monzo-to-Monzo).

  • Have a “DETAILS” section in the transaction details of each transfer (like on iOS - see below) containing the original reference and the sort code & account number if a Faster Payment.

Absolutely second this!


+1 and surely this should be on split bills too!


Really hope this is prioritised.

A partial repeat to another comment I have made elsewhere

My view on this is that it is critical.

In order to be able to “manage your money”, “understand your money” and all the other items Monzo shout about, you need to be able to categorise all transactions at a level deemed understandable and usable by the user.

The default categories are great, but as in many other places on this forum mention, they are not custom, and do not meet the needs of many. Custom tags are a very simple answer to this. But missing tagging across a large percentage of transactions breaks this.


I’d definitely find it helpful to add notes and tags to outgoing transfers, please :slight_smile:


Same here, noticed this the other day. Would definitely be handy to have!


Yes please!!! It really would help knowing why this transfer or someone paid me something and put it in the right category. Eg if someone is paying me back for a night out, I would like to be able to categorise it under night out


Do we know what the latest is on this? How many votes does something like this need before it’s taken into consideration?

I can’t believe something like this needs votes to be honest. I completely get that the iOS and Android devs are different teams with different timescales and priorities etc. but surely something like this should have parity across both platforms by now? :frowning:


Totally agree, adding notes should be available across all transactions!

Impacts the usefulness of ‘tags’ not being able to add notes to all transactions, particularly with bill splits.

Hope this feature can be added soon. Help suggests that one could use tagging for custom categorisation, but its not available on all transactions.

Adding notes should definately be available across all transactions!

Please make this happen. I send so many payments to my credit card as I spend that is love to be able to note up what it was for.

Everyone I know that uses Monzo brings this up as one of the only negative points. On one hand, that’s great as all other talk is positive. However, having notes for ALL transactions would be very useful.


Hi all

The Android app for Monzo allows to add notes or tags to a transaction, but the iOS app has no such thing. This would be quite useful in a case when the sender does not include a useful description and it seems weird that the iOS app is missing this functionality. Is there a good reason for that?

I’d like to be able to add a note to a bank transfer like you would a transaction.

As far as I’m aware you can do already?
See my monthly direct bank transfer to my landlord - theres a section to add notes that’s prefilled with the payment reference.

The ability to add notes to bank transfers is an Android-only feature for some unknown reason

Oh that’s stupid. Can’t see why they haven’t fixed that earlier.

Can someone please merge this. thanks.
