  1. Add an option to filter out expenses/payments by user

    It would be a nice feature to allow viewing only expenses and payments related to any particular user if required

      We’ve added this feature in the web redesign! Click “other actions”, then “hide items not involving me” to see only the transactions that involve you.

      (We haven’t decided yet whether to allow you to see only the expenses that involve some /other/ user besides yourself. If that’s a feature you’d like to see, let us know!)

    • Specify items on expenses

      Hello, I have been using this amazing tool for almost a year, and I've got some suggestions that might be useful:

      1 - Be able to specify which items where in the expense for more clarity, and also optionally the expense group for the items, for expenses with items that belongs to different groups.

      2 - The user should be able to create customized expense groups.

      3 - I use SW with a friend, but not every expense is shared, so we give eachother the receipts so we can remove what we don't want to go to the site as…

        I’m not sure we did these all in the way you requests, but we do have features that solve this in the app.

        1. You can add itemized expenses, though only from the web (we are unlikely to bring this to mobile)

        2. You can create groups, though I’m not sure this solves things that way that you want.

        3. You can now comment on expenses, so disputes can be resolved in the expense itself.

      • Offline mode for mobile

        Quite disappointed when I found out your app does not work offline.

          NOTE: if you are upset that iPhone or Android offline mode does not work in the way that you want, please vote for or add a new idea about your specific issue. I suspect this issue covers most problems related to this idea now: http://feedback.splitwise.com/forums/162446-general/suggestions/9786933-improve-offline-mode-in-iphone-app

          It’s much easier for us to figure out what work is important to do next if we have votes for specific problems.

          Our iPhone and Android apps now both include offline mode. Offline allows you to add and remove expenses with existing friends and groups, even when you don’t have an internet connection. Any changes you make will be synced later, when you have an internet connection again.

        • Create a group 'messageboard' for your web app

          I absolutely love your site, it is beyond useful. What would be great for the web app is if it were possible for group members to have a place to discuss charges or a to do list or even schedule events. Nothing too in-depth, just something that allows users to communicate and keep a record of it.

          • Why being bound to groups?

            Thanks for the great site!, could you please remove the need for groups so that I can record debts between me and a specific friend without the need of adding him to a group?

            Thank you!

            • email individual on bill share

              I can't able to track all the bill's shared by my friend. Everytime I need to come to splitwise webpage to see the bill's. You could add a option on the setting page about send email for each bill shared in the group. Some people like this, some may not. I prefer to receive email on each addition of new bills.

              • List more transactions per page

                It would be great to have up to 50 or so transactions per page. It stinks when the transactions in a month wrap to the next page. Or list the pages per month instead of just by page. Great app though. We use this website A LOT! Thanks for all of your work.

                • Have a drop-down calendar for selecting dates

                  When selecting a date for an expense, you should be able to select from a calendar rather than typing in a full date.

                  • Split an expense equally with individual $ or % adjustment

                    Use-Case: Utility Bills where in 99.9% of the time it is split equally, except in the case of individual-specific overage charges.

                    I would like to be able to set the bill to split equally, then add/subtract either a finite $ amount or a % to one person, and then (here's the important part) see the amount the other people owe automatically adjust to still be split equally (amongst the remaining parties) such that the leftover amount is brought back down to $0.00 automatically.

                    A competing service has this feature and it is very useful to not have to compute manually…

                        • Limit or track past edits

                          One thing that I have been meaning to suggest is to track latest edits somewhere. Currently, anybody in a group is able to go back to several months before and add expenses. It can be difficult to find where the change was made, and if a person is dishonest about it, it can be very difficult to pinpoint exactly where things went wrong. We discovered this problem in our apartment quite early on, and made rules about it, and thankfully none of us are dishonest :)
                          But I was thinking that it might be beneficial/helpful to either limit how far…

                            There is now a recent activity feed and more notifications you can get that will show you changes in your accounts. Expenses also get detailed notes on changes when they are updated so you can be sure you know what’s different.

                          • Attach a file (an image, PDF, etc.) to a bill

                            Our household is paperless and we scan every bill and receipt. It would be awesome if we could attach a scan of the receipt to the bill.

                              Attachments are now supported on all of our platforms: web, iPhone, and Android. When adding a bill, just click the button that says “Add an image” (web) or the button that looks like a camera (iPhone and Android).

                            • Split bills by percentage

                              Users should be able to enter percentages for expenses (i.e. Alice owes 40%, Bob owes 60%) rather than exact amounts.

                                We’ve added better support for splitting bills by percentage in the redesigned web interface – just add a bill and choose “Split the cost unequally”. We hope to bring this feature to our mobile apps soon.

                              • 3 Things

                                1) Add the ability to split bills by percentage. I hate doing math.
                                2) Require members to aprove expenses. My roommate adds groceries and splits it without permission. Screw that.
                                3) Add opt in expenses. Like if someone buys food and puts it out in the apartment. I should have the option to join into a split. Get it?
                                - You better read this. Or I may build my own splitwise.

                                  Hey Joey,

                                  I’ve split your suggestion into three parts, so that other users can find them more easily and vote on them individually. Here are the links, with quick reponses underneath:

                                  1: http://splitwise.uservoice.com/forums/162446-general/suggestions/2862672-split-bills-by-percentage
                                  You can actually split by percentage already, though it’s not documented. In the “add expense” pop-up, just enter percentages instead of exact amounts for the total that each person owes. Splitwise will divvy up the cost accordingly. (We’re working on a better, clearer way to do this, too.)

                                  2: http://splitwise.uservoice.com/forums/162446-general/suggestions/2862679-require-users-to-approve-expenses-they-are-involve
                                  We’ve considered this before and decided against it, but we will be adding two other features that accomplish many of the same things: (1) the ability to receive an email every time an expense is added, and (2) a “dashboard” that shows you the most recent changes to your apartment.

                                  3: http://splitwise.uservoice.com/forums/162446-general/suggestions/2862702-allow-users-to-opt-in-to-expenses
                                  This is an interesting idea! We’re already planning to add some features that will make…

                                • Add optional email notifications for new expenses

                                  Can you add an option to subscribe for an email option whenever an expense is added?
                                  If one of the room mates add an expense in an old date, there is no way i am going to know about it except if i am keeping close watch on my balance.

                                    Done! To turn on notifications for new expenses, go into your user settings (at the top right of the screen, click your name and then “My account”). Under “Notifications”, click the checkbox next to “When a new expense is added”. You’ll receive an email whenever someone else adds an expense that involves you.

                                    We’re also working on notifications for any time an expense is updated, but for technical reasons those probably won’t happen for another month or two. If that sounds like something you’re interested in, let us know!
