I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Make a public support forum (non-feedback oriented).

    It seems the knowledge base and feedback forum are public and searchable. However I wish support questions could be asked publicly too.

        Thanks for the suggestion! I definitely see how this would be useful, but unfortunately we don’t have plans to add it as a feature right now, as we believe it could easily be used for harmful purposes (e.g. secretly deleting a balance with your friend so that you don’t have to pay them back). For now, we want to make sure that everyone on Splitwise has a full record of all the changes in their account.

      • Please make a time recording billing app for lawyers

        Splitwise is so easy to use and records all expenses, as a lawyer, I wish I could record my time the same way. We can create groups of people working on a particular case. Everyone will record their time. At the end of the month bills can be created by adding all the time recorded. With an "export to excel option" we can use the app to edit the bills. Billing couldnt get simpler than this, thanks to splitwise :)

          Thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately, we’re not planning to track anything other than money with Splitwise, so adding time tracking isn’t something we’ll do.

        • Need approval of spender during settlement.

          it should need approval from the spender/lender while settling an expense. otherwise, for a huge group comprising of large number of transactions, it's hard to track/validate when some got settled and whether it's authentic.

            We’ve actually tried a feature like this in the past, and the overwhelming feedback was that our users wanted us to get rid of it. For the average person, it’s quite a hassle to manually approve every transaction on Splitwise, and it makes the site very difficult to use unless all of your friends are active users.

            You can always edit the payment at a later date to add notes that it is confirmed or add comments to the payment to say that you have confirmed it.

          • Kill the Hamburger Menu

            I would like to see a better navigation method than a side menu. There is a ton of resources out there explaining why it's a bad idea to do it this way. I also think in the case of Splitwise it makes the app a little bit confusing, partially, because it contains redundant information (friend list).
            For iOS at least you could go with a tab bar or maybe do it completely hierarchical.
            I know this sounds like a minor thing and a matter of taste. But I do care about good interfaces and using an app is about how…

              The reason a hamburger menu is bad is because a) people don’t know what it is and b) it’s slow to use if you need it. The current design of the app is based on our most common use patterns and in those cases, the only thing you need the hamburger for are notifications – which should really be badging specific people and items anyways.

              Try using the app without ever hitting the hamburger menu and let us know what feels like is missing (beyond notifications). The core home screen is actually designed to give complete access to just about everything.

              I’m declining it because this ticket isn’t quite specific enough to be actionable on our end. I’m very happy to hear feedback like “I was trying to accomplish X and it felt really hard to do”. I don’t know what you would consider better in this case. I could…

            • Add privacy options for payments. for eg: if a group contains A, B & C. a split is added between A&B then C shouldnt be able to see it.

              this checkbox option can be made optional while adding the bill, the payer can check the checkbox if he feels 'not involved' users need not see the split. this will save unnecessary temporary duplicate groups.

                Unfortunately, we don’t have plans to support custom privacy settings like this on an expense-by-expense basis, as we think it makes it too complicated to understand who has access to what.

                If you’d like to add a single expense that is only visible to the people participating directly in the expense, then you should try adding a “non-group” expense, which does not belong to any particular group. These expenses are only visible to the people involved. Non-group expenses are intended as a way to add expenses and payments with lots of random people, without needing to create a new group every time.

              • Make the person who created the expense the only one who can delete it

                It happened to me, someone deleted an expense and it didn't even give me a notification. And there is no history that I know of, so I could not restore.

                  Hi Luis,

                  Sorry for your trouble here. Two out of your three requests already exist!

                  - History is available. Just click on the flag at the top of the menu bar.

                  - You can set notifications for edits and deletions from your user settings page. We do plan to add these by default for expenses you create in the future.

                  - However, we have no plans to add “permissions” around deletion – this is against our philosophy of sharing, and would make Splitwise very frustrating for users who saw errors they had no power to fix.

                  I hope this helps, and sorry for your negative experience.

                      We don’t have reliable location data for our users, so I’m not immediately sure how we could do this. I’ll pass on the suggestion though, and see if our team has any interesting ideas about it.

                    • View accounts between any two friends

                      Typically I am only able to see what I owe my friends or vice versa. It would be a little more convenient if I could view the accounts between any two friends..This would be useful when either of them is unavailable to sort the accounts or if I want to settle up the accounts on their behalf.

                        For privacy reasons, we don’t let users view balances between their friends – it would open up quite a can of worms. However, it sounds like you might find it useful to create a group, which allows you to see and manage all expenses within that group, including expenses that may not involve you personally.

                      • Make it possible to choose the default group.

                        I live with a few friends, but was recently added to a larger group. Now this new group (with much less activity) shows first when I open Splitwise and I couldn't find an option to change this.

                        That is not nice :)

                          Now, android app is compatible from Android 2.3.3 only.
                          More people are using lesser versions of android. Mostly Android 2.2
                          it would be great if the app is compatible from Android 2.1

                            I love the app, but as a graphic designer, I am a bit disturb by the icon of the app. You should draw it on a new perfect grid, find one single typography for everything, and maybe use a more shinny green...

                              I’m very sorry you don’t like it! I don’t think we’re likely to change our logo or core design in the near future – we’re still pretty happy with our colors/font/etc, and right now we’re more concerned with building new features and fixing bugs.

                              If there are specific screens or UI elements that seem wrong to you, feel free to let us know at support@splitwise.com. Otherwise, my apologies for any eye sores!

                            • Comfirmed Exposes

                              The idea is that no exposes can be deleted or edited without knowledge of the concerning people.

                              So if a Group for an Event or whatever is bigger than only a few people it could be useful that creating, editing or deleting Exposes is only possible if all concerning people agree to this expose.

                              Therefor maybe a push notification could remind the user of outstanding agreements.

                              In general that would be a feature for big groups.

                              Thanks for reading.

                                Unfortunately due to the extra overhead that this would cause for everyone involved in an expense, we don’t intend to build out a feature that requires confirmation. Sorry about that! We encourage using the Recent Activity page and turning on notifications to make sure everyone is on the same page with their shared expenses.

                                Windows UI convention is to put the Cancel button on the right and OK on the left. Yours is opposite of that and it really threw me.

                                  The Cancel/OK vs. OK/Cancel argument is an interesting one, and there’s actually some decent research on the subject (http://measuringuserexperience.com/SubmitCancel/index.htm) – people are split pretty evenly between the two orderings, unless the buttons are spaced far apart, in which case Cancel/OK is preferred by a majority. In the end the choice is pretty arbitrary, but I think we’re going to stick with Cancel/OK as an ordering and hope that the coloration of the buttons helps to clear up any platform-specific confusion. Sorry for the confusion!

                                  The friends tab on the left does not scroll, you can see only a limited people from the list if I am not wrong. Would be great if you could fix this.
