  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. Add a "notes" field to expenses for more details

    Each purchase needs a description field

  5. 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.

  6. 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).

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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!
