Enhancement to reminders
I would like to see some improvements around the reminders functionality.
The very first time I created an expense account in Splitwise I had no idea that it sends out monthly reminders. I couldn't find any note for such emails that will be sent out (when I created the expenses group).
The monthly reminder thing came as a good surprise and is great, but I think it will be nice if we have some more control over scheduling reminders.
For example some friends in a group require frequent followups as compared to others.
So within the group created, I would like to schedule additional reminders for such friends added to an expense group on a fixed schedule (rather than logging in an clicking send reminder for a particular friend). Also this way the friend would know that its a scheduled reminder and I am not bothering him with additional followups (even though I mean to :))
Also it will be great if we can provide additional email addresses while sending out such reminders.
It is possible that this feature currently exists,and I am overlooking it. But if it doesn't exist I think its a good enhancement.
Thanks for the suggestions! More granular control and making reminders smarter is something we are thinking about improving over time.
For now, we automatically send out a monthly summary email each month that includes all of a person’s balances. You can also manually send a balance reminder by going to your friend’s page and choosing the “Send reminder” option (located under the settings menu on our website, and under the “More” menu on our mobile apps).

This would be a really convenient feature to have. It would save everyone from the embarrassment of being reminded directly by another person if it's sent automatically by the app itself.
Any chance we'll see this feature in the nearly future?

I love your app very much. I think it will be more useful if some custom notification like notice can be sent via the app. Like “your balance is low”. Any user/organiser can send the message to the other members for any important notices. Thank you very much.

I’d love to see a feature where the app reminds users that they have an unsettled balance in Splitwise. It would make life so much easier than having to manually go on and chase people directly.
Hi! it would be awesome if you guys had a feature that would periodically send reminders to people that they still owe money if they still have outstanding amounts after a long period of time. If you're part of multiple groups and you owe various amounts to various people, it's very easy to overlook who you've paid back and who you haven't. I have yet to receive payment from a former room mate and I'm sure it's just because it slipped his mind or my amount got lost in the shuffle, but having that feature would spare me the uncomfortable conversation of reminding a friend that they owe me money.
