Jack That's not logic, I only see this happening in iDeal payments.
Multiple history entries can have different causes. For every bank it's important to record every permutation of any change to an account, without throwing away old data or overwriting it. A bank account history should ideally be append-only. That being said, not every bank might expose all of it to the user. In most cases, bunq lets you peek under the hood. As I already explained: for iDEAL payments the flow is as follows
- You open up a website etc. with iDEAL payment and get redirected to a bunq website with a QR code
- You scan the QR code with the bunq app, this creates the first event (a payment request)
- You now have the opportunity to accept or decline this request. If you accept, a second event is created, which is the actual payment.
The bunq app however in the account overview will combine these two events into one, and in case you ever want to look up more specific details (like for example the date and time of you scanning the QR code vs. the date and time of you clicking on the accept button in the app) then you can use the history view. The history is definitely not meant to be a part of the app that you visit often, or at all. It can offer additional insight in some cases.
For example, one case where the history is quite useful imo is when you make deposits into the Easy Investments account. As the money first has to be transferred to another bank who holds the assets and bunq's investment partner Birdee also needs some time to acquire the assets on the stock market, there are about 4 steps that the deposit event can go through and that can be tracked more closely by looking at the deposit's history view.
That this screen might need some additional clarification is actually valuable feedback I think. Right now it's probably only understandable by expert users, so putting an explanation button there with a help topic that explains a bit more would be great!
