  1. don't default to split bills, let the user change the default

    Right now (Windows 7), I always have to edit the paid by because the default is split, and 99% of the time one of the parties pays the entire thing.

  2. Monthly email reminders

    I like the function to email people in the group to remind them to settle up. Our rent is due on a certain day every month. It would be great if there was a setting to select this settle up email to go out automatically on a certain day each month.

    By default, there’s a monthly summary email that goes out to all users on the first of the month. You can also set up an automatic reminder email for a specific bill by going into the date settings for that bill – click on the date, then choose a repeat interval, and you should see an option for sending a reminder in advance.

    Hope that helps! If you’re looking for something different, or if I’ve misunderstood your suggestion, let us know at support@splitwise.com – we’d love to hear your thoughts :)

  3. Suggestions on the Layout of Expenses page

    Whenever i multiple bills for the same date, it'll be more intuitive if you show the bills in the order of - the most recent one at the top.

    As of now, all the bills for the same date get added one after the other with the latest bill going to the bottom.

  4. to view individual expenses in a bar graph as there was earlier

    I can't see the feature which shows bar graph of an individual expenses. This feature was there 6 months back but I can't find it now.

    Do you mean the bar graph of your balances with all friends, or the monthly pie chart of expenses?

    You can view the bar graph of your balances by going to the dashboard and clicking the “view as chart” button in the middle of the page.

    You can view the monthly pie chart by going to any friend or group, clicking the “trends” button at the top of the right-hand sidebar, and then clicking “View full charts” at the bottom of the right-hand sidebar.

    Hope that helps! Email us at support@splitwise.com if you’re still having trouble, or if I’ve misunderstood your request.

  5. Don't show pairwise balances owed for groups

    I much much much prefer the older interface where it would show how much everyone owed the group / was owed by the group, rather than how much I supposedly owe other people or are owed by other people. Please revert back to the old view, or give me an option to do so.

    I !!!DO NOT WANT!!! to have to go back to the world of debt shuffling that I had with billmonk. These changes make me more likely to switch back to billmonk.

    That option still exists – it’s called “simplified debt”, and it sounds like it was probably turned off in your group. Just visit your group’s page on the web, click the “view full details” link at the bottom of the list of balances, and you’ll see a toggle to turn simplified debt on and off.

    Hope that helps! If you’re still having trouble, email us at support@splitwise.com and we’ll help you sort it out.

  6. Make the Recurring Label Smaller

    Maybe just an R? It gets cut off.

  7. Previous features were better than current

    Previous features were better than current.
    Current changes doesn't show up the the total payment to be made to specific person, rather than settling amount with individual. Old UI had this feature.
    For example in a group, if John owes $20 to kate and kathy owes $20 to John. Then splitwise should make this calculation and show up as Kathy owes Kate $20, rather kathy paying to John and John paying to Kate. This feature was cool, but now it doesn't seem to be visible.

    This feature is still available – it’s called “simplified debt”. Just visit your group page and click the “view full details” link at the bottom of the right sidebar, below the list of balances. That will open a pop-up with the option to turn simplified debt on or off. (It sounds like someone in your group may have turned it off by accident.) Hope that helps!

  8. Fairness calculators page has inconsistent UI

    The fairness calculators page (https://secure.splitwise.com/calculators) still has the old black and green UI.

  9. It can be confusing at first when you don't know that groups are set to have the "Simplify Debts" option on by default, you let users choose

    It can be confusing at first when you don't know that groups are set to have the "Simplify Debts" option on by default, you let users choose at the time you create a group, or at least let them know somehow, since some times it is not desirable.

    Also, that option is a bit obtuse to find, having to click on any of the people in the group. I accidentally found it, and when trying to find it again hours later it took me a while, since I was naturally looking in the Settings (Gear)/ Edit Group Settings of the…

  10. Add Bill: Reinstate the ability to select members of a group via checkbox

    The most common bills that I have are split with a subset of the members of my house. Instead of remembering who exactly I want to split a bill with, I need to be able to go down the list and check the people that apply. The old interface did this well, the new one does not. Since you've now removed the ability to get back to the old interface, there is no way of doing this except for manually typing out partial names for everyone I want to add. (~4-5 people every time)

    Additionally, reinstate the ability to use…

    All these things are already in the new form, actually :) If you click on the “split equally” link in the new interface, the window that slides out should let you check and uncheck members on an equal expense, as well as choose any of the other unequal split methods that we supported on the old form.

    If you’re still having trouble, email us at support@splitwise.com and let us know – we’d be more than happy to help.

  11. Auto-settle group account entries when I settle accounts with a particular friend

    When I have a single friend in more than one group and I settle accounts with them, the settlement does not nullify the dues in the group windows. I LOVE SPLITWISE, but I'd die for it if you made this change :)

  12. have a bill that can be split amongst others.

    For example, I pay $10 for something, but it was for my two roommates, so they each split that bill and pay $5 each. Currently, I have to enter it so we each pay $3.33, which really doesn't work for us.

    You can already do this, actually :) On the web “add bill” form, click “split equally” to open the split details screen, and then uncheck the box next to your own name to remove yourself from owing any part of the bill.

    If you’re still having trouble, let us know at support@splitwise.com and we’d be glad to help.

  13. Have one button for when one person owes another (no splitting)

    The way I use splitwise, I'm inputting a large number of transactions where someone else owes me the full amount. With the new design, I have to open a new menu and change the split settings for each transaction, which is a pain. Another solution would be to allow users to set defaults.

    You can download a .csv version of your expenses with any friend or group – just visit that page on the web, click the settings/gear icon next to their name, and choose “Export to spreadsheet”.

    You can also download monthly PDF summaries for groups by clicking the “view as PDF” link in each month’s header.

    Would be great if you can go for text ads...it will be a great chance for u to earn some bucks.. :)

    I’m not sure if it’s as easy as possible yet, but we’ve settled on the current design at the moment. Please let us know if you still think it’s too hard to find.

  17. allow repeating expenses

    I'd love to have the option to have an IOU repeat. For example, "rent" is always the same amount and always due the same day so it would be great to not have to enter it manually each month.

    BUT your service is great and super useful. Thanks!

    You can do this already! Just click the “date” button when adding a bill, and you should see an option to have the bill repeat weekly, monthly, or more. Let us know if you have any problems!

  18. Better way to add people

    I like the new way of adding bills. I have one feedback though.. I would prefer to add people to a bill by looking at existing friends in my list but I dont think there is a way to do that in this new design

    Hi,
    I think you should add some more currencies and also a Automatic Conversion netween them.

    Hey Mathias – I’ve just added the KES to our list of currencies. It may take an hour or two to appear on the website.

    We don’t currently plan to do automatic conversion between currencies, because only a small percentage of our users would use it, and because there are a few thorny issues we’d rather not get involved with. (Say I add an expense today for something that happened six months ago…should I use the conversion rate for today, or the conversion rate from September 2012?)
