  1. (mobile) Option to hide friends which I am settled-up with

    When looking at the current balance with my friends, it would be useful to hide the ones which I'm settled-up with. I should be able to see them all when adding a new expense.

    Update: all our platforms will now automatically hide friends/groups that you have been settled up with for more than 40 days. We also have a filter on mobile at the top of the friends and groups list to show only people you owe or people who owe you.

    I’ll pass on the suggestion! For now, we have a somewhat hidden way to do this already – from the home screen, just tap on the “Total balance” box at the top of the screen, and anyone who’s settled up should disappear. It’s only temporary, but it should help you see who you have balances with at a glance.

  2. Do some monthly reporting with the categories and totaled amounts

    Each month give the option to send out a csv of the amounts with the categories dates description total etc.

    Update: CSV export is now available on iPhone and Android!

    On our website you can download your data as a CSV for each group / friendship you have. We are bringing this feature to iOS soon, too.

  3. Set recurrent bill information

    Should be an option to set and re-use recurrent bills without having to re-type every month (Rent, utilities, etc)

  4. Could you make it so that I can choose what sort of notification noise I receive?

    At present, I'm only able to select whether or not I get notifications and not the type of sound or whether or not it vibrates. I'd like to still receive notifications on my phone but be able to choose a silent option so that I'm not disturbed late at night or early in the morning should someone make an entry at those times. Thanks!

  5. Allow a printable or exportable summary of Group Balances

    I need to be able to export group balances to email directly to everyone via email since not everyone can pay via Paypal. I can do screen grabs, but it'd be easier to have a table to copy and paste or an easy export feature.

    Hi Greg, Have you tried clicking on “View printable summary” on our website? It will appear in the month header on every group. I don’t think we have this feature for mobile apps yet, but it does exist in some form. I hope this helps!

  6. Reverse Bills

    Sometimes I EARN money, and I owe that money to my 3 roommates.

    A bill is when they OWE ME money. A Reverse bill is when I OWE THEM money.

    You can solve this by letting us do a negative amount for a bill. Thanks!

    Our website now has additional handling for reverse bills/refunds – when entering a bill, you now have the option to choose “reimbursement” as a split type, which will allow you to distribute money equally between a number of people. (If you try to enter a negative cost in the “Add bill” form, it will now automatically change to the new “reimbursement” split method.)

    We’d love to add this kind of bill to our mobile apps as well, but it’s not on the roadmap yet. Apologies for the inconvenience!

    Hope that helps! Let us know if you encounter any bugs, or if you have any other suggestions.

  7. Allow users to filter transactions by their name

    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).

    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.

  9. Trip Expenditure per person

    When I create a new trip, and add expenses.
    It will be good if I can get a report of how much it costed per person.
    For ex, total trip expenditure was about $500, and 4 people, assuming, we all shared money equally, the cost-per-person listing will help track travel expenditure.

    We don’t have a “post trip report” yet, but we do have monthly spending charts in the web interface fro groups (under the trends icon in the far right) and you can click on view full charts to get detailed spending summaries.

  10. Decimal point in amount entry

    I'd probably be easier and less confusing if in the amount entry when adding a bill, the decimal keyboard (UIKeyboardTypeDecimalPad) where shown instead of only numbers.

    Update: we’ve moved away from the ATM style input field.

    I’ll pass on the suggestion! Right now our number input is designed to work more like ATMs and some other banking apps, where numbers fill in from the right as you type. Sorry for any confusion!

  11. poking a person

    idea is to add a feature..poke..which pokes a person by sending him an email, reminding about the money he owes...because generally people dont check their splitwise accounts regularly..

    You can actually do this already! From our website: click a friend or group in the left column, then click the settings icon at the top of the right column and choose “Send a balance reminder”. From our mobile apps: tap on a friend, then tap the “Remind” button. Hope that helps!

  12. translations to different languages

    I think it would be useful to have splitwise interfaces (web and mobile devices) in different languages as it is a really great tool which should be understandable for everyone.

    Maybe starting with common languages like Russian, German, French, Spanish, Italian...

    Update: Splitwise is now available in Spanish, German, Dutch, French, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese. For more information about translations, see http://blog.splitwise.com/about/translators/

    We’d love to internationalize, and definitely plan to do so in the future! Right now, Splitwise is still changing pretty fast, and we’re still settling on some of the language that we use in English. Once that’s a bit more settled, we hope to start work on translating into other languages, so that more people around the world can use Splitwise :)

  13. Deleting or Hiding Groups

    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.

    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 :)

  14. Owed money between someone without an account

    Hi,

    I think the app has some great features and could be useful; however it requires everyone involved in an expense to be a registered user. I should be able to use the application to split bills and keep track of money owed between myself and a friend who does not use the app.

    If this feature is available and I did not understand how to use it please let me know. I would also like to know if you add the feature as I would register for another account.

    Regards,
    Ryan Clare

    Sorry for the confusion. Your friends definitely don’t have to make accounts for you to continue to add bills with them.

    If you add their email address on a bill, they’ll get an email notification that you did so but only once — we won’t spam them. Their email address will be available to you in the system to add more bills as you continue to use Splitwise yourself.

    If you don’t want to provide their info at all, just create a group on the website and add members by name only. No contact info required.

    Cheers, Zoe

  15. Simplify debts for people not in groups

    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.

    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!

  16. Add a chat window

    Add a wall or chat window, so people in the group can make comments or pose questions. e.g. "Is that everyone?" "Why was the beer so much?"

  17. Currency conversion

    When I went to Cancun, I charged/paid for things at different locations and at each location, there was a different exchange rate for the peso to USD. I would like to suggest a way to set the exchange rate for each item when doing a "trip" group. I ended up having to manually calculate the conversion and split it up each night for a group of 16.

    Currency conversion is now included with our premium version, Splitwise Pro (https://secure.splitwise.com/pro/subscribe). Right now, it’s a web-only feature, but we hope to add it to our mobile apps in the future!

    On the web, if you click on a friend or group in the left sidebar, then click the settings icon at the top of the right sidebar, you’ll see an option to convert all transactions with that friend/group to your default currency, using the current market exchange rate. You’ll also see a suggestion to convert currencies appear automatically when viewing a group with balances in multiple currencies.

    Hope this helps a bit! We’d definitely like to continue improving multiple currency support over time – I can’t say how quickly that will happen, as we’re a very tiny team, but it remains on our to-do list for the future. If you have suggestions or feedback, feel free to…

  18. 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 :)

  19. Delete Expense

    1. When a expense is deleted, a push notification is sent to ios users, however it doesnt say who deleted the expense?

    Could you please add this information in the push message.

    2. When the push notification is clicked, it should take straight to that particular expense details and not the overview screen.

    Please do the needful for our convenience.

  20. Don't require email address for group members

    Requiring group members to have a unique email address makes it difficult to keep track of money I owe myself.

    I sometimes borrow money from a savings account and want to track how much I "owe" myself which SplitWise would be perfect for with a slight change. The current system only allows unique email addresses as group members so I have to use a workaround to add my savings account as a member so I can record my repayment.

    Actually, email addresses are already optional for group members – on the “create group” page, just leave a person’s email blank when adding them. The field should say “Email address (optional)”. Hope that helps!
