  1. Bank account details somewhere/anywhere

    Hi. Liking this service so far.

    Its nice keeping track of debts, however, it is not much use not knowing how to pay it. (Not everyone uses paypal).

    In UK and Australia, someone just needs bank account details to do a transfer. Would be nice either to have one or all of the following:

    1. My own account details available for my friends to see. Even if not in their own fields, maybe in a "other info" memo type field.

    2. Or be able to put my own comments on my friends so I can make a note of their…

      Storing bank account #s is unfortunately tricky, as there are some serious security concerns around bank #s here in the US and in some other countries. Still, we’d like to do it if possible. It’s not on our roadmap yet, but we’re definitely considering it for the future.

    • Managing recurring expenses

      Our monthly electricity bill went up by a couple of euros, so I needed to change the recurring expense that I had setup for this. Although this is possible the process is a bit confusing. I'd suggest providing an overview of scheduled recurring expenses, separate from the list of expenses that have already been created as a result from these schedules, which is what I was looking for because I didn't really want to touch any previous expenses.

        It’s definitely confusing – editing recurring bills is not our best work. The way it works is that editing the most recent copy will change ones that cloned after it and will not affect the past.

        We do hope to improve this at some point!

      • Integrate Paytm with Splitwise

        You're building a great eco-system of applications and you guys are quite responsive to feedback. Congratulations for that !

        I was wondering if it was possible to integrate Paytm (https://paytm.com/) for payments with Splitwise. It will be a very convenient alternative for a lot of users.

          Thanks for the suggestion! I’d love to add this at some point. We know that Paytm would be a great addition for our Indian users, so it’s definitely on our list of possible improvements for the future :)

        • enable mass editing of expenses

          I have a bunch of expenses that I want to put in a group but I can't find a way to do it other than one at a time. There should be a way to edit several fields on multiple expenses at once. I see there's a suggestion called "Bulk Edit Expense" but it hasn't been commented on since 2012.

            Hey Aaron – thanks for the suggestion, and sorry that we haven’t posted an update in so long! I’ll bring this up again at next team meeting, though we’ve punted on it several times since it’s such an infrequent request. (The biggest use we see for it is mass-moving expenses between groups – if you or anyone else needs help with that, feel free to send us a support email for now.)

            Re: the Chrome error, hmm, I’ll pass on a note about that too. We use UserVoice to power our user support, but all logins should be safely redirected – not sure what’s up.

            When you export your data to Excel there should be an additional column indicating who paid for each expense.

                Hey there! I can’t quite tell from your description – are you trying to add a recurring bill (e.g. a cable bill that’s the same cost every month), or a recurring payment to another Splitwise user (e.g. you pay back your friend $50 every week)? We don’t support recurring payments to friends right now, but we do support recurring bills: just click on the date when adding or editing a bill, and you’ll see options to make that bill recur weekly/monthly/etc. Hope that helps!

              • To have detailed expenses report and category wise if needed

                When I see printable summary for my group apartment, I should be able to know that in a current month , how much I have spent in total presently it only show how much you owe etc. and also category wise like entertainment , groceries other.

                This could help me to record my expenses and manage them in a better way.

                  You should be able to get some of this information already from our website. If you click the “Trends” button at the top of the right-hand sidebar, then click “View more charts” at the bottom of the right-hand sidebar, you’ll get a chart with details about your total spending and your breakdown by category.

                  We may bring some of that info into the printable summary in the future, but for now, I hope that helps!

                • Allow manual archiving of group

                    I think this is a great idea! It’s not on the roadmap yet due to lots of other priorities voted higher, but one we’ve discussed and agreed totally makes sense. Thanks for submitting.

                    • Bills paid by multiple people: "Each person paid an equal share"

                      When adding a bill which was paid by multiple people you should be able to select an option "Each person paid an equal share" in addition to the available option "Each person paid for their own share".

                      This is especially useful for couples having a shared bank account / credit card or for shared bills where everyone just chipped in the same amount of money (but one still wants to split the items afterwards).

                        It would be great if there was a mac app version - it could integrate with the notification centre for transfers and thing.

                              We’d definitely like to do this! It’s unlikely to happen any time in the next few months (it takes a lot of work to properly and securely integrate with banks), but hopefully it’s something we can consider in the future.

                                Thanks for the suggestion! This definitely makes sense. We’d like to add the ability for an account to include multiple email addresses, and setting different default addresses for PayPal/Venmo/etc seems like a logical extension of that.

                              • Add possibility for paypal.me link

                                It makes sense to include the possibility to settle up via this link or to generate the link as such for further sharing. (by adding the paypal.me-username to the splitwise-account)

                                  Interesting. I haven’t seen this yet. It’s unlikely we’ll be able to support this as our control over how the PayPal code works is limited, but it’s definitely worth looking into.

                                • Export notes as well

                                  When exporting to a spreadsheet, it would be awesome if all the information related to transaction is also saved as an excel file (rather than CSV). Currently notes and attached images are not exported.

                                  Saving as an excel file, will give more flexibility to add links to images saved along with a transaction.

                                    Thanks for the suggestion! I can see how notes and attachments would be useful, though we’d have to think a bit about how exactly to structure the spreadsheet (we probably wouldn’t want just one “notes” column, or each cell might have a huge amount of text). I’ll add this to our list of possible improvements for the next time we’re working on printouts and exports.

                                  • Add Date Range Search

                                    I feel like it would be better to filter out the details based on the expense logged in dates. Like giving a date range selection and after I search, I would be able to see the results (either within a group or in all the group) particularly in the selected date range.

                                      Thanks for the suggestion! Just to be clear: you want to view your bills filtered by the day they were added, instead of by the date on the bill, correct? I’ll pass on that feedback.

                                      For now, your best bet is probably to take a look at the “recent activity” screen, which shows all changes in your account in order of when they happened. I realize that’s not the best screen for looking through a large amount of data, though, so apologies for the trouble!

                                    • Allow group summaries for the whole time, not just month by month

                                      Trips may span month boundaries. It would be nice to have for trip-based "groups" to be able to show the summary info for the whole trip, rather than only month-by-month.

                                      • import from CSV take 2

                                        I read through your reasoning on why you don't want to tackle supporting import from CSV. There is no standard, and creating one can be messy, particularly with the details you mentioned. However, the cases, if limited to a two-way split are simple to start and would cover that scenario.

                                        I would expect to download a sample CSV (or my own db from your website), append to it exactly as it is, and reupload it to your parser. If a case isn't covered a quick "we don't understand this line please run us through it can feed back into a…

                                          Thanks for the detailed thoughts! Building an importer is definitely possible, but it just hasn’t been a high enough priority for us yet – only a handful of people have asked for it, and we’re a tiny team (2 developers), so other updates end up taking precedence. We might get to it someday, but I wouldn’t expect it any time soon, unfortunately.

                                          If you’re feeling brave though (and you’re willing to ignore XKCD’s advice), we do have an API you could use for importing! Docs are here: http://dev.splitwise.com. Maybe someone will put a nice CSV import program up on GitHub for the power users :)

                                          Please provide an option to filter out expenses/payments by user , similar to the option of hide expenses not involving me.

                                            I’ll pass on the suggestion! For now, you may be able to use “Export as spreadsheet” to accomplish some of this. You can export a spreadsheet from our website by going to a group or friend, then clicking the settings icon in the upper right and choosing “Export”. Hope that helps!
