Any plans to improve reminders?

Not sure where to post this, but I didn't see a "requests" sub-forum.

This isn't necessarily a new issue with the site, but rather a shortfall this site has had from day one. The way reminders are set up and used is useless. I've tried a couple of times to reenter "miles until" and "miles between" so I can get a reminder 500 miles before my car hits xxx miles, but it never seems to work out right.

Are there any intentions of overhauling the reminder function of this site?

Ideally I would like to be able to set a reminder for x odometer reading and x miles thereafter For example, I want a reminder every 5000 miles to change my oil, starting when my car hits 89500 miles.

Also, thank you for fixing the vehicle settings to use different engine choices within a given model. I have requested that for 3 years and kept getting "it would be too confusing for users"

Thanks for the suggestion, while there is some limited calendar function, I agree it could stand some improvement. Syncing the reminder to fuelup milage would be a good addition.

Great!

Thanks for the reply. If nothing else, simply changing the "Miles remaining until your receive your next reminder" to allow "Start when mileage reaches".

But a total revamp allowing me to specify multiple rules would be ideal. For example I should change my oil every 6 months or 5k miles, whichever is first. I understand this isn't the primary function of this website, but it would certainly make it a much more versatile one.

Thanks again for reading our feedback and continuing to improve the site so that it allows for more consistent tracking of data.

This right here.

Also since you know our average fuel-up time period and distance you can remind us >X numbers of fuel-ups/miles early or X weeks early.

Would be fantastic.
