  1. Can't add a pending bill

    At the moment you can only add a bill or expense that someone has already paid- what about when you receive a bill that needs paying in the immediate future? You should be able to add this so you can see which bills are scheduled to be paid and who owes what.

    You can already add bills and expenses that are dated to the future – just change the date in the “add bill” form when adding your bill. The “future” bill will be included in your balances immediately, and you’ll be able to see who owes who for that particular expense.

    We’ve also thought about an option for future bills that /aren’t/ included in your balance immediately, but decided that it’s an unnecessary feature for most users and would make Splitwise a bit too confusing. If that’s what you were looking for, we’re sorry!

  2. Add tool tip for the graphic icons in the splitting window

    Adding tool tip gives more clarity. The icons are good, but not completely clear.

  4. Periodic email updates of amounts owing

    If this service were to suddenly disappear (please no!) I would have little idea of how much money people owe me or vice versa. I could be left out of pocket $100s of dollars. It would be nice if you could elect to receive periodic summaries via email of amounts owing between all of your friends (weekly, monthly etc.). This way you wouldn't have to go as far back if something were to happen to your data.

    Hey Clayton – we do send out monthly summaries by default, detailing your spending for the past month and your total balances. You can turn that option on or off from your user settings page.

    We’re also considering adding a weekly summary option, so if that’s something you’re interested in, let us know!

  5. User required to enter data every time a change is made to the people who will split the bill

    Since the bill details are asked first, I enter those details first before selecting the people involved. Once I then select the people involved, the bill details are reset and I have to enter them again.

    (Divide a Bill page.. )

  7. Reminders bar to the account view

    Add reminders to the app as well along with sending it on the mails. So any point someone has to make to the group should appear on an alert bar on the left always (Probably with changed colors for the checked and new ones).

    We actually do have a place for notifications on the website – it’s the flag icon at the upper-left of the screen (next to the Splitwise logo), which turns red any time you have a new notification. It seems like a lot of people are missing that, so we’re planning to tweak the design to try to make it more noticeable.

  8. Allow users to post expenses for that user only

    The new format requires you to define who else is involved, and I am using Splitwise to track my own budget that is often, but not always, shared with my girlfriend. I'd like to continue to do so with the new system.

  9. Seperate dates for Bill date and entered date

    Need to have a field for Bill date and another one for Date the bill is entered. Otherwise anyone entering an expense can bury an expense in older expenses by putting a really old date on the bill.

    We actually do this already – we keep track of when a bill was added to our system, separately from the date that is given for the bill. If you’d like to see a list of recent updates to your account, you can visit https://secure.splitwise.com/#/history, and you’ll see a list of all changes in chronological order (ordered by the date they were added).

    Hey Rapsi – you and your friends can upload photos by logging into the website and visiting your user settings page. There, you’ll see a button to upload a picture to use as your avatar.

  11. invite a friend on "Add an IOU" screen

    The first time we use the service, there is no friend, and if you want to fisrt add a IOU, then there is now way to continue, you have to cancel, invite friend and start over.

    Be able to add friend at the last minute would be good.

  12. Changing the delete item button

    My roommate, being an idiot, will pay me physically then delete the item on splitwise using the red "X" icon. However, this deletes the record, which is problem if it the record involves another of my roommates. I've explained this to him multiple times, but to no avail. Could you move the delete button? Maybe when you click on an item to expand it, you could put the delete button at the bottom of the expansion? In my mind, you should never delete an item unless it was a mistake. So hiding the delete button until you expand an item…

    Are you still having this issue? We’re now hiding the delete button until you mouse over it. We also hide expenses whenever your total balance is 0, which should let your friend hide things when he pays for them.

  13. A bug with adding people to a bill

    Hi,

    I first add the expense details (amount and description) to the app. I then select people to add to a bill.

    The expense details are reset after I add the people and I need to enter it again. This is really annoying because the flow is always as described in the above para.

    Please fix it.

    We’ve recently made an update that should fix this – when you click to settle up, the form should autofill with the appropriate information (when possible). Hope that helps!

  16. history - logs

    There is no way to see all the history (what if someone edited the amount later on?)

    1) I should be able to see all modification done to a transaction
    2) I should be able to see the entire logs of the group (what if a transaction is deleted)
    3) I should be able set a settlement or freeze account thing, so that any new addition are a fresh start and modification to historic data would not influence current settlement , something like starting on fresh excel sheet.

    There is now a recent activity tab which will show you any changes since the last time you looked. There are also detailed comments that get added to expenses when they get changed so you can see what is different.

  17. Make the description field look more like an input field

    I like the new design for inputting bills to split, but the space to put the name of the bill doesn't look like a field I can edit. The first time opened the box, I didn't read that string then was looking for where I could type in the description.

  18. Allow participants in a transaction to be edited

    It should be possible to edit participants after a transaction has been created. Deleting and recreating the transaction is a pain.

  19. Delete pending invites, move members in groups

    Sent an invite to two wrong emails, and now I can't invite the right one. He's already my friend, but there's no way to add him to the group. If there is, its poorly placed. How do I delete a friend?

    To delete a friend, go to the friends page on the web app and click on the gear menu by their name. An option to remove the friend should appear.

    Similarly, the gear menu for groups has an option to edit the group settings which will allow you to add and remove members.

  20. Currency Default

    It's way to easy to accidentally use the wrong currency. I'm trying to use SW with some of my less tech savvy roommates and I don't think they should have to fiddle with settings in order to use USD by default.

    Could you use location info to set defaults automatically? Could there be a dialogue when an account is created asking for currency? Could I set a default currency for all transactions related to a certain group?

    Great web app! I'm excited to see where this goes in the future. Keep up the good work.

    We now automatically set the default currency based on your location and do our best to guess the correct currency when you are adding an expense in a group or friendship that uses multiple currencies.
