Just a really quick idea here that might help when the masses upgrade to iOS 12.
I had an issue yesterday where I’d kept some direct debit money in my Goals, but I’d forgotten to move it into the main account as I had 2 DD’s going out yesterday.
Because I have the Do Not Disturb mode for notifications set up on iOS 12 between 10pm and 6am every day, the two push messages I received from Starling to say I need to put funds in by 4pm that day had come in around 1.30am. This meant when I woke up, I didn’t see them.
So, it wasn’t till late last night when testing push notifications on an app we are building, that I spotted these in the the notification centre.
So, it’s meant those two DD’s weren’t paid (thankfully I’ve sorted them this morning by paying the companies directly via my debit card).
Could we have an alert in the app itself, perhaps on the main screen that DD’s are due today? If you miss those push messages, and you’re forgetful (have kids who swipe messages away when they are watching YouTube for example, or are just busy!) you’d have no way of knowing that payments were coming out that day.
I can’t be the only one who’s fallen foul of this!
