Dividend payment dates query

Hi there, this is probably a bit daft me asking but will there or is there a place on the trading 212 app or website to show the dates payouts for dividends?
Other than manually looking up each one myself.

@jaylwalker93 We don’t have a dividend calendar yet but we’re working on building one.

You might consider providing a note on the buy page to say if the stock is currently trading ex-dividend. This is useful to know.

Or you could use the monthly tables I produce showing dividend pay dates and research links

That’s actually really helpful, best I’ve seen yet. Thank you, added a shortcut to my home screen! You should consider adding an ad at the bottom of the page, just make a little bit of money from it. Even make an app out of it possibly. Only dividend apps I’ve came across are free but useless, or cost a fortune

I’ve been building bespoke ones by month , but maybe I should just make a ‘coming soon’ dividends page and update it every week or do to capture new dividend declaration.
Hmmm.
Might be a project for next week.
Ads - yes, need to offset these time and server costs but not found a viable avenue to generate revenue yet! I can’t imagine I could charge people for access to the ‘calendar’ unless it was $tiny - like $1 or less per month maybe. Dunno.
Any suggestions for the data required (Separate calendars for ex, pay, Uk, us???)
Someone also wanted a bespoke portfolio upload option do you can track just your selected stocks dividends — any takers for that?

Honestly, you’d be losing a large user base if you charge a fee. I personally wouldn’t find it valuable enough to give up a proportion of my dividends just for a more convenient way of knowing when they’re being paid. People are much more accustom to ads these days, just one Google adsense ad popup at the beginning of going onto the site.
I’d say a simple table format would be good, filter by ex. or by pay date. If you could make a profile page to save your own holdings would be good, and allow no. of shares to be entered and then you can give a column that calculates your pay, and then a sum of your pay. You could develop it a lot over time .

Only problem with all of this is T212 said they’re making a dividend calender so anyone on this platform won’t need it soon

Hi David! It would be highly appropriated to have the possibility to see dividend dates directly on the chart (like on yahoo finance for example) as it takes time to switch from app to app to have a complete analysis of a stock (and dividend I think is one of the basic info an investor is looking at).
Also it would be great if you will change the way chart is displayed on iPad app, it’s much better as on iPhone version (talking about changing the time frame displayed from 1 day to 1 year and Max). Currently on iPad version when you change the time frame it is changing the way chart is fluctuating and not the time frame you select to display. Very confusing.
Thank you for your rapid response.
