Thanks for your patience, I wanted to make sure I had the right information from our dev team in order to confirm that this is intended behaviour and not a bug in our application.
We have logic in the Pulse which orders or moves the position of your transaction on the Pulse so that the transaction labels can either be displayed fully, or so that they don’t overlap one another. This avoids you having many labels which are unreadable.
Because today is the 1st of the month you probably have more transactions that you do on most other days and/or you might have merchants with long merchant names, and so this logic is coming into play in both of your cases.
- The algorithm in the app first attempts to display all transactions in full.
- If we have overlapping labels, it will then sort transactions by the amount and put the lowest value transaction in “Other”
- We repeat this each time you make another transaction, so that you don’t end up with overlapping transaction labels.
- We also check that the transaction labels fit within the screen size and apply the same repeated logic to move the lower value transactions into “Other”
This means you can end of up with more than one transaction grouped within “Other” on the Pulse but they will all be your lowest value transactions that day. Remember you can open your feed to see the full days transactions if you need a more in depth look than the glanceable spent today view the Pulse provides.
As some customers will be on devices with smaller screen sizes than others, you might see this logic more often than those on larger devices. Or if you have a larger font size it will also group into Other more often.
I hope this helps to clarify how the Pulse is displaying your transactions today.
