  1. Only notes option

    Please provide an option to add only notes- like if the newspaper did not come on 14th and 22nd of the month, or if the maid was on leave for a week- so that we know how much to pay at the end of the month to the maid or the newspaper guy.

    • link directly to the new group when you receive an invite notification

      Hi! When I receive a notification that someone has added me to a group, and I click "Visit now", I'm directed to my Splitwise homepage, not the specific group. Seems like it would be helpful to be taken directly to the group.

        Hmm…I just double-checked, and our “added to a group” email already appears to work this way (e.g. when you click the link, it takes you directly to the new group). If you’re experiencing something different, could you forward the email you received to support@splitwise.com, so we can look into it? Thanks!

      • Dashboard Improvement

        When a user clicks on a friend's name in dashboard, only the expenses including logged in user and that friend should be displayed instead of all expenses. This will help in faster tracking of balance between two members.

            If you’re adding an expense in a group or friendship, it should use the most recently used currency in the group or friendship when you add the expense. If you usually use one currency, you can set it in your account settings to use when there isn’t a recent expense in your group or friendship.

          • Want to create a group but don't want to invite anyone. Can we create groups just by names ?

            My friends may or may not be interested in your app. So I don't want to invite them but wanted to create a group using their names for my calculation purpose. Do we have that option?

                The feature does work this way currently – if you add a bill on the 25th and set it to reoccur monthly, it will reoccur on the 25th of the following month. If you’re having a problem with reoccurring bills please write support@splitwise.com and specify the name of the bill. Thanks!

                  Hey there – if you’re using Splitwise on your mobile device, you should be able to do this already! If you’ve granted the Splitwise app access to your contacts, then we’ll automatically let you invite/add people who have a valid email address or US phone number. (Please note that we don’t import phone numbers for some non-US countries right now – that’s something we hope to improve in the future!)

                • share rent with irregular stays

                  In this apartment, staffs of a company who are in a foreign mission come to stay for 3 months but they dont arrive at the same time. one will be sent earlier and the other for example 10 days later and so on, making an irregular rent sharing system. With 800$ a month, the rule is to share equally and per day of stay in a month. Suppose that there are 3 of us and and one of us comes to stay from the 15th, then: 800÷30÷3×15
                  800 (rent)÷ 30 (days)÷ 3 (number of people)× 15 (number of days stayed).…

                    Hey there! There are multiple possible ways to handle a situation like this (see our old travel calculator for examples: https://www.splitwise.com/calculators/travel), but it sounds like you probably want the “split by shares” feature. When adding a new expense, just tap on the “split equally” button to change the split, and then choose “split by shares”. You can then give each person shares as follows:

                    Person 1: 30 shares
                    Person 2: 30 shares
                    Person 3: 15 shares

                    Splitwise will calculate each person’s share so that Person 3 ends up paying half as much as Person 1 and Person 2.

                  • Log individual costs too

                    The ability to log individual costs for a holiday as well as group costs would be great to show how much an event such as a holiday has cost each person.

                      Thanks for the suggestion! You should be able to see your share of expenses in the group totals under the more menu. It’s very basic, but should show you the individual cost in the group.

                        Sorry for the confusion! We actually do this already – when someone settles up with you, it adds a transaction to your account with the exact payment amount. You can see this transaction by going to the relevant friend screen or group screen, or by looking at the recent activity screen. Hope that helps!

                          Splitwise already supports this feature. In split options, choose to “split by shares”. Everyone else pays for 1 share. Your friend who is with his family pays for x shares, where x = total number of family members.

                            Splitwise automatically hides any transactions that have been fully settled. When you settle up with a friend, or when your group fully settles up, all old expenses are automatically hidden behind a tap or click. (However, we do not delete the transactions, because we think it’s important to be able to review that data later if you wish.)

                            If you’re looking for a different behavior, let me know in the comments and I’d be happy to pass on your suggestions :) Have a great day!

                            • Optimal Settlement Plan for Group

                              We are a group of 6 friends trying to share our travel expenses. The settlement is far from optimal. At the end each person needs to make 5 settlements while this is not necessary.
                              You can add a little code to achieve minimum number of settlement to improve the user experience. Well here is the idea of the algorithm:
                              1. sort positive balance (to receive money) by value from largest to smallest
                              2. sort negative balance (to pay out money) by largest absolute value to smallest absolute value
                              3. use the largest absolute valued negative balance to pay the largest…

                                Thanks for the suggestion! We have a very similar feature in groups. If everyone on the trip is in a group, you can turn on Simplify debts which will reduce the number of payments similar to how you suggest.

                                    • Show only those friends on home page which either owe me money or to whom I owe money. Other friends can be hidden under 'old.......friends'

                                      Currently, when I select All Balances.. in the drop down above my friends list you show friends with whom I've settled up balances too. You should only show those friends who either owe me money or to whom I owe money. Other friends can be hidden in that menu at bottom. Like that, the list will shrink and will probably show me in one view all friends with pending balances..

                                        • Exchange rate option for multiple currencies missing

                                          If exchange rate can be fed amongst currencies by user then final balance can be achieved in single currency.
