      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!

    • 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.

      • Show total expense by each member in a group

        Sometimes it will be best if you show that "Vikram Spent 350£ total in this group". This will exclude only my expense, not what I paid for others.

        • 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.

                  We use the official Unicode symbol for INR (₹) on all devices that support it. If you are using an older mobile device or an older computer, you may still see “INR”, “Rs”, or even a “[?]” symbol to represent that your device does not know how to display the modern rupee symbol.

                  • Insert a grand total for all expenses for a group

                    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.

                      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.

                            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!

                                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 still supports editing group transactions. However, it sounds like you may be trying to edit a transaction where one of the people involved has left the group. In that case, you would need to add that person back to the group before you can edit old expenses that involve them.

                                    If you’re still having issues, email us at support@splitwise.com and let us know what bill you’re trying to edit – we’d be happy to look into it and figure out what’s up.

                                      Sorry for the confusion! You can remove a group member at any time, as long as that person has settled up all of their group balances. Just go to the group’s settings page, then hit the “X” next to that person’s name.

                                      • Add payee using Mobile number

                                        Allow yourself to add a payee using mobile number. Too often you don't have people's email addresses and need to add a payment owing.

                                        • Adding contacts iOS vs Android

                                          It's kind of strange that you add contacts in iOS with their email address and on android with their phone number. So I got some doubled contacts on my phone.

                                            Sorry for the confusion! You should be able to add contacts by either email address or phone number* on both platforms. Is it possible that you have different contact book info on your devices (e.g. maybe your iPhone has someone’s email address on it, but your Android device only has their phone number)?

                                            *Adding contact by phone number may be disabled or modified in some countries where SMS invites are legally restricted.
