  1. Close a Group instead of deleting it

    Can you add a feature to Close a Group instead of deleting it?
    All participants have to be Settled up to close a group. People cannot add expenses to a closed group. Show these groups is a separate section. It will help keep the history of groups.

    Update: Android now also hides groups that have been settled for more than 40 days.

    While we don’t have plans for implementing a feature to close a group, we do have a feature on the web and iOS (coming soon to Android) where we hide groups and friends that have been settled up for more than a month automatically from your summary view.

  2. 3D Touch feature

    The newly added 3D Touch feature doesn't work. It doesn't take to Add bill page. Also it will be great if you add frequently used group like say home rent share as a direct link in 3D Touch shortcuts.

  3. The ability to add bill to group with non-group participants

    We are a group of about 9 that often do things together (go out to eat, go to the movies and such). As we do it on a regular basis we just keep track of things with splitwise. However sometimes during our events we bring along people from outside the group that join in. If we then would have splitwise split the bill we couldn't add it to our group as we got non group members. This means that we suddenly have bills which are pretty much group based outside the group creating the need for double payments instead of…

    We do have this in the app right now, but it’s a little hard to find. When you’re adding an expense with your group, you can just add more people to the list of tokens next to the group at the top of the add bill form. It won’t keep the non-group people on the expense permanently, but it will create 2 separate expenses from the initial version that you added, one in the group and one with just the other people.

    The only tricky part is that the person paying for the expense usually needs to be the one to add it to the system in this case.

  4. 1. after you settle up- show history somewhere.

    Hello,
    i'm using your application and i noticed there is something missing (for me at least).
    i was using the app with my roommate to put monthly bills, but after i settle up with her and i wasn't sure if i charge her for the internet bill of last month i had nowhere to go see if i did it or not.
    So i have a 2 suggestion:
    1. after you settle up- show history somewhere.
    2. an option to enter bills by months so ppl can see the bill and for what month the bill was for.

    Would love…

    Once you settle up with a friend or settle up with everyone in a group, we hide all the previous expenses with them, but we don’t delete them.

    To view them, you can simply tap on the big green checkmark that appears on your friend/group screen that says “You are all settled up”. Once you tap on it, you should be able to see all your old expenses.

    For your second suggestion, you’ll be glad to know that Splitwise already supports recurring bills!

    When adding a new bill on the web or in our mobile apps, click on the date. This should reveal a screen that allows you to change the date of the bill and set a repeat interval (weekly, monthly, etc).

    If your bill repeats, you will also have the option to set an email reminder for a few days in advance. That reminder will be sent to…

  5. Incorrect Spanish Translation

    The string "Ver un resume imprimible" should actually be "Ver un resumen imprimible" i.e. resume -> resumen
    Furthermore, when clicking on this printable view link, the view is in English, when it should be in Spanish!

  6. Repair the problem with display of Indian Rupee symbol

    Hi Splitwise Team,

    On the webapp, when the settings are configured to use the Indian Rupee Symbol (INR Currency): Only a question mark is displayed instead of the actual INR symbol.

    Suggesting to repair this.

    Thanks in advance.

    From your account settings page, you can change your default currency to INR, and the app will update to display the rupee symbol. The reason why we don’t automatically display symbols for non-default currencies is because some currencies use the same symbol, and it can become ambiguous (for example, MXN and USD both use the $ sign). Hope this helps!

  7. allow creation of monthly 'sheets' within a group to easily track group expenses by month

    (And no, I don't want to use the spreadsheets :) )
    Right now, we re-create the group each month after settling accounts- it would sure be easier to just create monthly accounts sheets which can be individually settled.

    Thanks for the suggestion. We do have this on the website right now. If you go to you group, there’s an option in each month header to show balance changes for that month. If you settle each previous month before the next month, this will just be the balance for that month.

  8. Add the option to bilaterally net transactions

    If you have a situation where there are 3 people A, B, and C.
    A owes B £10.
    B owes C £20.
    C owes A £10.

    Then there should be only 1 transaction required: B pays C £10.

  9. Have a way to record an expense without adding it to the bill

    Sometimes I want to record and show to the whole party how many times on, for example, a road trip, we got gas, but if that was all to be reimbursed to one person later by someone outside the party, have a way to not actually add it to the tally. This way everyone knows the total expenses, but know that it's not part of the actual bill.

    While there isn’t an officially supported way for doing this on Splitwise at the moment, you can add a transaction in a group where you completely paid for something, and you are the only person who owes any money for it.

    Lets say if you paid $100 for Gas, just add an expense titled ‘Gas’ and say that you paid $100, and untick everyone else except you from the ‘split equally between’ section and save the expense. This will achieve what you’re asking for: everyone will be able to see the expense and it will also count towards total group expenses, but will not count towards any individuals’ balances, including you.

  10. Having a Separate Name field

    when we add a new User/friend in a group, sometimes it takes the email-ID as Name as displays the same ...
    Can we please have an option to edit the displayed Name while/after adding.

    Also Observation is, when a new Friend is added using Mobile App instead of taking Names it takes email ID only.

    Update: the Android 4.0 release now includes the option to edit friend information as long as your friend has not accepted their invite.

    You’re right, this is definitely an issue with the current Android app. When you add a friend using their email address, we use the part before the ‘@’ and populate that as the person’s name.

    If you’ve added someone as a friend using their email address and they haven’t accepted your invite yet, you can go to that friend’s page and navigate to their friend settings. From here, you can both edit their name and their email address. But once someone accepts an invite from you, they are the only person who can change their details.

    We are planning to make this easier in an upcoming Android release, where you’ll be able to edit a friend’s info both from the friends setting page as well as from…

  11. Attachment option: to attach a copy for the bill

    When working in big groups and specially with some people in the group who you do not know too well, it would be good to have a option where in while entering the amount there is an upload bill option. With this all people in the group can see where the money was spent and is the claim genuine.

    This feature is already available on both iOS and Android.

    While adding a bill, look for a camera icon or receipt option, this allows you to take a picture of the bill and attach it along with the transaction. This picture is then permanently recorded with the expense, and is available to all users involved in the expense.

  12. Indirect settlement

    Related to my earlier post: http://feedback.splitwise.com/forums/162446-general/suggestions/10304280-3-way-or-multiple-way-settlement

    If Alice owes Bob, and Bob owes Carl, then there must be a way in which Bob can make an entry in SplitWise to link Alice and Carl (assuming they're known to each other) so Alice can directly pay Carl.

    Please add a way to have SplitWise calculate multiple-way settlements, and provide options for indirect settlement.

    This feature already exists on Splitwise within a group.

    If Alice, Bob and Carl are in a group on Splitwise, and you turn on the ‘Simplify Debts’ option in the group settings, Splitwise will do exactly what you mentioned, it will transfer debts around to ensure that a minimum number of payments have to be made to settle up.

  14. Merge Account should merge (not simply migrate)

    When one merges two or more accounts, they should still be able to login using the original accounts login information, blocking one to recreate the un-merged accounts. Currently the merge feature works more like migrate.

    P.S. love this app.

    Update: merging accounts now keeps both email addresses.

    Thanks for the suggestion! We’d definitely like to support this, and hope to add this feature once we add the ability for an account to have multiple email addresses.

  15. Hide a transaction from a friend

    I was thinking of a feature where you can hide a transaction in a group from a friend so that they will not be aware of the transactions and costs. For e.g., surprise birthday party expenses.
    So, I am talking about making the transactions not visible to a person who is not involved in the transaction. It would be a good feature otherwise as well.

    Thanks for the suggestion! The best way to hide a specific expense is to add it as a “non-group” expense – that way, only the people directly involved in the bill will be able to see it. You can make any bill a “non-group” bill just by changing the group to “No group” in the “Add bill” form.

    Unfortunately, I don’t think we’re likely to add a feature to hide an individual expense that belongs to a group, as it’d add a lot of complexity that could confuse people. (For example, a hidden expense would probably still change the group’s balances, and that would mean we’d have to show DIFFERENT balances to different group members depending on whether or not they could see the “hidden” bill.) Hopefully the non-group expense solution helps you out!

    This should be how groups currently work – you can only see a group if you are a member of it. Please let us know if this isn’t how it’s working for you.

  17. Show the total balance amount for each person

    For each person, instead of showing as "asterisk" next to the amount, the app should display to total amount to be paid/received. And you can then show the breakdown when you click that person's field.

    In short, show the total amount to be paid/received instead of displaying an "asterisk".

    Update: our mobile apps now show all balances for a person or group instead of just the default.

    Can you explain in more detail what you mean by displaying “the total amount”? In general, we only display an asterisk(*) if a user has balances in multiple different currencies. Would you prefer us to automatically convert all those currencies into one currency, and show the converted total balance?

    Hey there! We should already be using “RM” whenever possible – on our mobile apps, we use your phone’s default currency formatting, and on our website, we use “RM” if MYR is your default currency. (If MYR is not your default currency, then we use “MYR” for clarity.) If you’re still seeing “MYR” somewhere that you think you shouldn’t, could you send us an email at support@splitwise.com so we can investigate? Thanks!

  19. Ability to input multiple items into an expense.

    When picking out items from a grocery list receipt, it's not feasible to input each item as separate expense. I an forced to sum all applicable items from my receipt outside if split wise and then input the total into the expense. It would be nice if I could add subitems into an expense which will calculate the the total for me automatically.

    It would be even nicer if you could optionally name the subitems in order to remember what they are.

    We have itemized bill on the website which accomplishes this. The interface is a little too complex for us to be able to bring this to mobile anytime soon.

  20. Triangle payment can be dispelled itself.

    The situation is below. I was owed A $2, A was owed B 2$, B was owned me $2. So the $2 dollar shouldn't be calculated in my owe or owed number. By the way, I'm thinking of making a similar web like this. But I find this one is good. I'd like to contribute anything I can. Below is my mail.

    If you’re in a group, you can go to group settings and turn on Simplify debts which will do this. If you’re not in a group, you will need to go to your account settings on the website and simplify debts outside of groups from there.
