i use both the mobile and webapp. i love splitwise.
i have disabled adblock on splitwise webpage; while i cant afford to pay for this, i thought i would support you guys atleast in this way...
keep up the good work..
Thanks for your kind words and support! :)
Would be nice to have splitwise handled as a bank account within YNAB. Or within any other budgeting app really. I guess what i'm saying is pretend you're a bank and offer an API which gives third party apps a secure, read-only view of 'transactions'.4 votes
We do have a public API off of which YNAB could build: http://dev.splitwise.com/
I have 2-3 friends with name "Amit", to know which Amit is who, I need to see the details of friend, on Desktop site, I am not seeing email Id of my friend.
This is causing confusion. Though in mobile app, email id of friend is being displayed.1 vote
Hey thanks for the feedback. If you hover your mouse over your friend’s name it should show you your friend’s email address.
It would be nice to see a grand total of all expenses for individual groups. I realize this can be done by exporting the data then adding it up, but it just seems like an inefficient process that can be eliminated by inserting a simple sum function.9 votes
Group totals exist as a feature on both iOS and Android, and on the website, you can see totals in a group by going to “View printable summary” from the month header above your expenses in the list, and choosing “all time” as the date range on the top right corner.
There shall be an option of exporting the balances to excel in a similar way as "detailed statement of bank account".6 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! You should be able to export a friendship or group to a spreadsheet from the more menu on those screens.
We should be able to send a message to the group/friend which is visible to them as a notification/ pop up when they login8 votes
You can add comments to expenses, which show up in the recent activity feed when your friend opens the app next. If they have push notification or email notifications for comments turned on, they will also receive one of those.
Whenever I invite a new friend for whom I have multiple contact methods they all show up in the autocomplete search box. That's confusing because I don't want to invite my friend at the wrong address. Can you set it up so that I can pick which phone number or address to use? You could insert smaller grey text after the friend's name.7 votes
This should be possible on all platforms. If you’re still seeing this problem somewhere, please open a ticket. It’s also possible to invite friends by phone number as well, though the web app does not support this very well.
For example, i would like to see how much we are spending on groceries for the last 6 months. Or how much i spent on gas for the past year.
Some bills aren't monthly, and the current view (which adds a lot9 votes
If you upgrade to Splitwise Pro you can do this. If you’re interested head to your Account Settings page on the web. It’s pay-what-you-want.
In a large group, it is difficult to see which transactions you paid for. You need to scroll back through all the transactions to find the specific transaction you are looking for, and even this doesn't quite solve the use case. It would be nice to select a user to see all the transactions he/she recorded (or, optionally, were involved in).4 votes
This is now available in Splitwise Pro. You can sign up for Pro from your Account Settings page on the web.
Thanks for using Splitwise and have a great day!
Thanks for your feedback!
Our solution to messaging is expense-based commenting:
As of December 2013, you can add comments to any expense from the web app. An email alert will be sent to everyone on that expense with the content of your comment.
I Know that you Guys are working on this issues.
I presume that you are working on Hiding Groups instead of Deleting them.
What i wanna suggest is that if you can provide both the options, Deleting & Hididng, it would be good.
But Deleting should be done only after all the users in that group are Settled Up.54 votes
Update: we now hide groups that have been settled up for at least 40 days. You can also still delete groups.
We’d definitely like a better way to handle the closing/hiding of groups, besides just deleting the group entirely. We’ve got a lot on our to-do list, but we’re hoping to add this feature in the not-too-distant future :)
Say I have a group with some one else / some people in it. I have already sent an invite, and it shows as invite pending. Add the option to re-send the invite, in case the person deleted it by accident or just as a reminder to join splitwise again.2 votes
we love this site and the relates applications both in iOS and android. But what i feel missing is a simpler way shuffle debts between friends that are not in a single group. The simplify debts feature between a group s good and understandable that people know each other, but for expenses that were not added to a group can not be shuffled. Please add a feature where you can shuffle amounts between a group of people.13 votes
We actually have a “simplify debts” feature that lets you do a one-time shuffle with friends – it’s on the user settings page under “Advanced features”. We consider it a power-user feature (since it changes people’s balances in a way that can be more difficult to understand than within-group debt simplification), so we don’t encourage most people to use it, but it’s available if you want it!
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.8 votes
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 firstname.lastname@example.org – we’d love to hear your thoughts :)
Would be great if you can go for text ads...it will be a great chance for u to earn some bucks.. :)6 votes
We have these in place wherever it made sense for us.
My friend invited me to Splitwise using my gmail address email@example.com. When I tried to log in using firstname.lastname@example.org (same address, but Google lets us put periods for easier dictation and understanding), Splitwise did not recognize this as the same account. Confused, I created a separate account using the email address without periods, only to find that now I have two Splitwise accounts. Having the ability to add multiple emails would also address this issue.5 votes
Update: sorry for the delay! We now handle this correctly.
Definitely a good suggestion – we’ve had similar confusion with “@gmail.com” vs “@googlemail.com” in the UK and some other territories. We hope to add support for multiple emails later this summer, and better support for Gmail specifically.
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.12 votes
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.
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!3 votes
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!
