  1. Hide transactions from people not involved

    There should be an option in the groups' settings to always hide transactions from people that are not present, and prevent those people from seeing the transaction (or just hide the value).

    This would be helpful in a group of friends where you don't want to disclose, eg, the birthday present's value to whoever's birthday it is.

      We believe anyone in a group should be able to see any expense in that group so they can audit our calculations. If you want to keep an expense private, add it outside the group. Expenses outside the group are only visible to the people involved in the expense.

    • Put full list of who pays who in printable summary

      I made a group for a trip. After entering all expenses and simplifying debts, I wanted to send out a list showing A pays B $X, B pays C $Y, etc. But as far as I can tell, that information is only available by hovering over each name in the group one by one, so it's not easy to get a complete view of what is going on.

      Can that list be put into the printable summary?

        Thanks for the suggestion! I’m only declining this because we have a different view that shows this information. If you go to the group and look at the balances on the right, you should see a link to “view full details”. This will show you the exact repayment breakdown for everyone in the group.

      • Create weekly summaries

        It would be great to be able to get weekly summaries rather than monthly ones of the spending in a group, to see how much people have spent and get a weekly budget.

          Hi Katherine,

          Thanks for the feedback! Unfortunately I don’t see us offering this any time soon: monthly summaries are already very expensive for us to provide, in terms of both server power and email budget.

          Sorry for any inconvenience and thanks for using Splitwise!

            • Rename "Expenses" to "History"

              To ordinary non-accountants it makes more sense to call it history

                Hey Andrew – can you give me more specific details about exactly where you want to change the word “expenses” to “history”? I don’t think we’re likely to change this (we already have a “Recent changes” screen, and I think using the word “history” elsewhere could get confusing), but I’d like to make sure I understand your suggestion correctly. Thanks!

                    At least for now, Splitwise’s policy is that anyone involved in a bill has the power to view, edit, or delete it. We realize this can make things difficult if two users disagree on a bill – but even if editing was disallowed, those two users could still just add more expenses to change things to their liking.

                    Requesting a correction is a reasonable solution, but we feel it sacrifices too much simplicity, and is too complex for the average user. For that reason, we’ve decided not to include that feature. We’re sorry for the inconvenience!

                      By “reset”, do you mean clearing all past expenses? Our website should do this already whenever a friend or group is completely settled up – it hides everything, with a link to show past expenses.

                      If I’ve misunderstood your request, let me know!

                    • New terms to be added like lent, paid off, etc.

                      Usually on trips, I lend some money to one of the group partner and I always settle by adjusting the amount in rent as he's the one who pays the rent and bills. Most of the time, the settled up statement says that "X paid Y $100" though it's more like "X paid off Y $100". It may sound silly but it's bit more clear.

                      • can i edit a name of group members just for my view...bcoz right now I can see their usernames ??

                        I think you should have an option of editing a name of group member just for view..I.e. it shows username.

                          Hi there. On Splitwise each user gets to choose their display name. Similar to Facebook etc. We may some day implement a ‘nickname’ feature but it’s not on the road map. Cheers!

                            Currently in a group any user can see any expense that is in the group. We don’t want to list anything in the group screen that cannot be seen by everyone to prevent confusion and maintain privacy.

                                My friend and I are in multiple groups together and she makes 1 big payment to me to settle our debts. However, I can only apply the payment to 1 group or no group at all, and that throws off the group balances. Can this be resolved? I've been dividing the payment manually and that is working so far.

                                  We really, really want users to think of groups as separate things, so we aren’t planning to add multi-group support for anything.

                                  That being said, if you are settling up for the exact total amount that you owe, if you do it from the friendship screen (where it shows your overall balance from all groups and expenses), we will split the payment up to settle up all your groups.

                                      Very sorry for the trouble! I’m pretty sure we place the “Save” button in the standard location on both iOS and Android (in the upper-right corner of the screen), so I’m not immediately sure what we could do to make it more obvious. If you have any more specific suggestions, let me know and I’d be happy to pass them on. Thanks!

                                    • consider that the rent bill should be able to not be simplified with the rest of the bills

                                      When living with a group of people, it is common that one person pays the entire group's rent, and the other members pay their share to the one. We do not put rent on splitwise because splitwise simplifies rent, along with the rest of the expenses (the whole point of the website pretty much), but since rent is such a large bill, the one who fronts the rent wants that exact reimbursement in an account devoted to paying rent, therefore he does not want rent to be lumped into the other debts.

                                      In other words, give the option to set…

                                        This is definitely a legitimate problem, but it’s not one we’re planning to solve in the near future. Right now we’re making an active effort to simplify Splitwise, and adding a new special option to recurring bills doesn’t quite fit with that plan.

                                        For now, if you’d like to treat rent like a separate account, it’s probably best to actually handle it that way, either with a separate Splitwise group or offline. Sorry for the trouble!

                                      • Allow multiple ways of calculating unequal splitting and multiple payers

                                        For example,
                                        In a meal for 4 people totally $60, person A ordered a drink for $14
                                        Then everything else is split equally between 4 people
                                        But person B is paying for themselves and person C

                                        So ideally I would be able to use the +/- function for person A
                                        Person A +$14
                                        ($44 left)
                                        Then use the shares function for
                                        Person A shares 1 ($11)
                                        Person B shares 2 ($22)
                                        Person D shares 1 ($11)

                                        So ideally it could be done in one step
                                        Person A +$14, share 1 ($25)
                                        Person B shares 2 ($22)
                                        Person C shares 1…

                                          Is there the facility for Lending money to another person within the group. Apps like Share a Bill have this facility

                                            Thanks for the suggestion! We’ve considered lending, but don’t plan to add it to the app. You can record lending money by adding an expense where the person you are lending money to owes you the full amount.
