  1. [BUG] Tab order in group creation messy

    Tab order in Group creation under /groups/new is wonky after you've added a bunch of extra people.

  2. 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.

  4. UI design tweak - "Are you sure?" confirmation popup before discarding yet-to-be-added bills.

    I click "Add a bill", start filling up the details. I accidentally click "Esc", which discards the popup in its entirety with all the details I filled (especially sad when this happens for Itemized bills).

    A simple popup "This bill hasn't been added yet, are you sure you want to discard?" would be a much loved (at least by me :))

    Oh no, sorry for the trouble! I can definitely see how this would prevent some accidents :) I’ll add it to our list of possible web improvements – I don’t think we’re planning much web work in the very near future, but hopefully soon!

  5. allow gift payments that don't need to be paid back

    In my household, I pay the rent and then my flatmates reimburse me. This works beautifully, normally.

    Lately, flatmate #2 has been paying a little extra to cover flatmate #1's share. The way Splitwise is currently functioning, it sees the overage as a debt to be repaid.

    But it isn't. Flatmate #2 is giving Flatmate #1 the gift of paying off his debt. It is a gift with no expectation of repayment.

    I cannot figure out how to log this in Splitwise. It isn't a "reimbursement". I cannot log it as a simple "settle up". I don't know what to…

    Hmm…interesting! I’ll pass on this feedback – I haven’t heard much about people adding transactions on Splitwise that aren’t actually IOUs or payments.

    For now, your best bet is probably to edit your rent expense, so that each flatmate’s share reflects the actual amount they’ve been paying (including the gift). So if everyone pays $500/mo normally, and flatmate #1 is paying an extra $100 on flatmate #2’s behalf, you could edit the bill to say that flatmate #1’s share is $600 and flatmate #2’s share is $400. Then, when each person pays their adjusted share, there should be no remaining debt between the two of them. Hope that helps for the time being!

  6. make pie chart colors the same from month to month

    I like that we can see trends in the pie chart and have a visual of where our spendings fall from month to month. However, when I compare months, the categories are different colors. It would be much readable and helpful if colors stayed consistent for the sake of comparison. Thank you!

    Sorry for the trouble! Our charts could definitely use some improvement, and we’re planning to redo them in the near future – I’ll see if we can keep the colors consistent when we do that.

  7. Mac App

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

  8. Easy switching for who is paying who when settling up

    I tend to lend money to my friends and use settle up option to record cash payments and keep a track of who owes what. When clicking settling up, it'd show from and to depending on who owes who (which is fine).

    What I think will help is an option to switch it (probably by clicking the arrow). As of now, I've to manually select it by clicking on the names and re-selecting it.

  9. support item in itemized bill 'consumed' by X, but paid for by person(s) Y, Z

    Every friday, I organize a group dinner. Frequently, people attend who are in a relationship. Sometimes, even non-monogamous (poly) relationships.

    It would be really awesome if I could enter an itemized bill in this way:

    item, cost, participants
    eggrolls, 8.00, Janet, Steve, Tim, April
    pad thai, 10.00, Janet
    basil chicken, 10.00, Steve
    fried chicken over fried rice, 10.00, Tim

    Tax: 8.75%
    Tip: 20.00%

    People pay for another:
    Janet: paid for by Steve, Tim

    and thus get this break down:
    egg rolls: $3.00 for steve, $3.00 for tim, $2.00 for april
    pad thai: $5.00 for steve, $5.00 for tim

    and then…

    Thanks for the suggestion! I can see how this would be useful for group dinners and such. We haven’t worked on our itemized bill form for a while, as it’s a pretty infrequently used feature on Splitwise, but I’ll pass on your suggestion and add it to our list of possible improvements.

  10. Add multiple currency support for charts

    When displaying charts in a group with expenses in multiple currencies, the sums are stated unconverted in the default currency, which makes the chart useless. If currency conversion (which would be very cool!) is not on your current roadmap, you could at least display a chart for each currency.

    Sorry for the trouble! Not many people use 2+ currencies, which is why this has gone neglected until now, but we’d definitely like to improve it. We’ll probably start by simply showing one currency on the charts screen (and ignoring expenses in other currencies), then later move on to either showing multiple charts or doing actual currency conversion. Until then, apologies for the inconvenience!

  11. 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.

    By the way, I just clicked to sign in with Google and got this security message from Chrome: You attempted to reach feedback.splitwise.com, but instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as *.uservoice.com. This may be caused by a…

    Updating this as it’s been a while. We’ve discussed this a few times and can see how it would be useful in a few cases (such as mass-moving expenses between groups – if you or anyone else needs help with that, feel free to send us a support email). We’ll keep it open for now for further voting and comments.

  12. Download all the expenses of current month

    Add the option to download all expenses of the current month. Now we can download expense on a particular group,but not on all expenses made by me (including all groups and individuals) for current month.

    Thanks for the suggestion! I’ll pass it on at our next team meeting – I know we haven’t updated our export options for a while, so maybe we’ll get a chance to update them soon.

  13. Relationships for debt calculation

    So I have a few groups with some friends, and not all of them know each other. Occasionally, when I add a combined bill, Splitwise simplifies debts in a way that person A ends up owing person B, who don't really know each other. It ends up being an awkward situation which I resolve by taking the money from A and giving it to B.

    It would be cool if Splitwise showed me a graph with nodes for myself and every person I've ever shared a bill with (or scoped within a group for simplicity), and then let me add…

    Hey Sameer – are you talking about the “Simplify debts” feature for groups? In general, we’ve assumed that everyone in a group knows each other, as groups are usually used for apartments and group trips and things like that. Could you give me more details on the specific case where this problem is happening for you? It’d be good to have more background and make sure we understand where you’re coming from.

    On the other hand, if you’re talking about the “Simplify debts” feature that works outside of groups, then our algorithm should take this into account already, as it only moves around debt between people who already have outstanding balances with each other.

  14. Give an easy way to type shop names / descriptions

    I tend to use Description to enter the shop name, or service provider for the bill. This means that I tend to have several bills over time for the same shop / provider, eg. for household builds, local shops, etc.
    It would be nice if 1) either I could enter a shop name separate from description and/or 2) have an auto-complete on shop name and/or description based on previously entered expenses. That would speed things up even more!!

    Thanks for the suggestion! Auto-complete is one of those things that we’ve wanted to do for a while, but never found the time to actually implement – it’s definitely something we’re considering for the future, though. I’ll pass on your thoughts about a separate “shop name” field, as well :)

  15. Make downloadable spreadsheet reflect itemized bills

    I use the "download as CSV" functionality quite a lot – it's helpful for getting a quick overview of all the data, and for checking what's changed since the last time I reviewed my transactions. But it would be a lot more useful if it also included item splits as separate rows.

    Of course, you'd want these to be distinguishable as itemized rows. A few possibilities to allow this: leave off the date from item rows (so it's visually clear they're attached to the previous transaction); indent the description text with a few spaces; or prefix the item description with…

    Interesting…thanks for the suggestion! I can definitely see how that’d be useful for heavy users of itemized bills. Right now, itemized bills are only used by a small % of people, so this might take us some time to get around to, but I’ll share your idea at our next team meeting and add it to our list of possible improvements.

  16. Spit Tip equally (separate from itemised bill and tax)

    When eating out it makes sense to split the bill as per who ordered what, but with a tip an option to split equally would be nice.

    Sometimes the dishes aren't too far apart in price and you are paying for the service, so we frequently split the tip equally.

  17. 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 account details.…

    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.

  18. Remove balance settlements sector from the trends pie chart

    When the balance settlements are displayed in the recent activity page , Its warranted there. Though at the trends chart, where the expenses of the month are shown in a graphic form these same balance settlements distort the complete pie chart.

  19. Hey Good Job

    your application is really working fine and doing a great job.... till now this expense is giving the spent money and the share of the team members in the event.

    I think you can think a bit ahead and provide an option called Earnings or Income.

    I will keep it in simple words: lets say I am creating a group called Self Expenses and updating my daily transactions, at the end of the month if I want to check and compare my income and expenditure than I am clue less as I have only option to add bills but not…

    Thanks for your complements Kishore!

    We’re stayed away from personal finance so far because there are so many other strong offerings on the web, thanks for suggesting this and we’re always interested to hear of ways we can help people doing personal finances use Splitwise more effectively.

    Cheers,
    Jon

  20. Please add an option to filter out expenses/payments by user

    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!
