We are looking into a true joint account with dual debit cards and dual account authority.

Looking to share an Envelope with your friends or family? Envel has just the feature for you - shared envelopes! You can choose to share these with as many friends and family members as you'd like. Anyone can deposit or withdraw money with the owner's approval. Shared Envelopes are similar to Custom Envelopes in that they are not affected by Autopilot.

How to create a Shared Envelope (Note: creating makes you the owner of the Shared Envelope)

  1. Log in to your Envel App

  2. Go to the Envelope Screen

  3. Scroll down to your Shared Envelopes

  4. Click on Create Shared Envelope

  5. Fill in your new Envelope Name and Pick Envelope Color

  6. Under Share With, you will see a list of all your contacts, even those without Envel Accounts. Search for and select as many people as you would like.

  7. Click on Next

  8. You will be taken to the Confirmation screen: click Send Invitation

  9. You should be taken to a screen that says Invitations Sent. In the box at the bottom, you can Copy the link to your clipboard and also select Share, which will prompt you to share the link via text, email, Messenger, and more!

  10. Select Got it or close and reopen the app, and you're all set!

  11. (Optional: bother your friends/family until they accept your invite)
