Wishlist to make Monzo perfect

Since the end of the big list, it’s kind of weird not having a list of things that Monzo are working on. I feel lost without knowing what’s coming next.

I know Monzo are planning to redesign the payee management section, as it was in the blog that was released at the conclusion of the list. I was just so disappointed that they didn’t have a revamp as part of the big list. It really is a deal breaker.

I think the list you’ve put together is great and really hope some of those things can be implemented by Monzo.

I get notifications when direct debits are paid, sometimes two if there’s an amount variation for the month.

On that basis, I’m pretty sure we all ought to.

I also get notifications.

Agree with the rest of the list though!

You should be getting DD notifications. You may not notice them as they happen very early in the morning.

Major ones:

Payee management - treated as an address book with integration with my phone contacts

Better payday prediction - even some news on progress would be great

UI refresh - particularly settings and the account/ pots section. Settings need to be categorised better and pots need to be condensed - I’d like to see most of my pots without scrolling

Ones that would be nice:

More images for pots

I like the idea of a dark mode/AMOLED mode for night. Just because it makes it a bit more discreet.

Gmail integration - link payments with email receipts and confirmations

More automatic metadata for transactions

Payee Management def top of the list - being able to name each payee whatever I want is badly needed (bonus points for custom pics too)

Ability to name/label scheduled payments (to identify what they are)

Android launcher shortcuts to Jump straight to personal / joint account

A credit card!!!

This is my wishlist of features not included in the End of The Big List post. All of those things would also be on this list (eg: better payee management, more flexible standing orders, improvements to Joint accounts, committed spend pot etc…).

Payments

  • Saved references for P2P payments.

  • Lend-to-friend tracker - tracked P2P (interest free) loans to friends, similar to this but without the ability to set a repayment schedule.

  • Section in the app where you can view all pending bill splits and loans to friends.

  • “Add payee” option for incoming faster payments.

Scheduled Payments

  • Set a Direct Debit for deletion.

  • Skip next standing order payment (future payments go out as normal).

  • Pay this payment early for standing orders (future payments go out as normal).

  • Multiple scheduled transfers to/from the same pot.

  • Give nicknames to scheduled payments (including scheduled pot transfers).

Pots

  • Pot area redesign - smaller icons and more than one per row (like apps on smart phones - could also include marketplace products alongside pots as in-Monzo apps).

  • Locked pots.

  • Shared pots.

  • Adding notes to pots.

  • Target dates for pot goals with prediction telling you if you’re on track to meet the target date.

  • Ability to hide pots.

  • Direct transfers between pots.

  • Ability to create a pot scheduled payment after choosing the “Scheduled payments” option in the Payments tab.

  • Pot transaction history (maybe with its own pulse graph).

  • More pot pictures.

  • Ability to change pot picture on Android.

  • Custom pot ordering.

Additional Monzo Web functionality

  • Withdrawing money from pots.

  • Deleting Direct Debits and standing orders.

  • Downloading statements.

  • Sending bank transfers.

Transactions

  • Split transactions into multiple categories.

  • Suggested and autocomplete tags.

  • Gift category.

Summary

  • Bring back spend-by-merchant breakdown.

  • Spending analytics for tags (so they can act like secondary categories).

  • Option to overflow any spend for a category where you’ve gone over budget into the budget for the next month (allows better long term budgeting).

Merchant Data

  • Fix the various merchant data issues.

  • Ability to submit logos from Facebook, Instagram, JustEat (ie: ability for Monzo to cache these logos).

It would be nice to split a payment up, for example if i withdrew £50 i could allocate £20 as travel and £30 entertainment etc. If they could appear as two withdrawals that would be great but just being able to split them within the app would be nice rather than doing two back-to-back withdrawls.

Better performance and design, on par with what we had during the prepaid. Currently it’s a disaster.

A great set of ideas - thanks everyone :slight_smile: It’s really useful to get such detailed feedback from the community to make sure we’re working on stuff you care about.

You’ll be pleased to know that a lot of this is on our roadmap :+1: We probably need to refresh the transparent product roadmap sometime soon.

Do you find that pulse graph useful? This is the one I have got and it looks like it whenever I get my salary paid to Monzo:

How do you get the Pulse Graph?
I don’t seem to have one?:thinking:

You’ve got to have your account for a period of time. Are you a new user?

This is mine, it makes no sense and serves me no purpose.

Just under 2 months so that’s probably why :slight_smile:
