Hope that makes sense! Let us know if you have more questions.
In both the web & mobile apps, it would be great if you had a little 'I' in a circle that we could click for more info about a specific feature--specifically I was and still am very confused as to the differences between a Memo, Note, and Comment. Would be helpful if there was a short sentence or two explaining what each feature was for. Thanks for a great app!1 vote
Sorry for the confusion! Yep, I agree that all those differences are pretty hard to understand. Hopefully it’s something we can clean up in the future. In brief:
Memo: Basically the same as the “Description” field on a normal expense. When there’s enough room, we try to display this text right in the list of expenses (e.g. “Ryan paid Jon $20 for ‘Groceries’”)
Notes: When adding an expense or a payment, the notes field lets you include extra information about that transaction. (Once upon a time, we didn’t have any ability to add comments at all, and this was the only way to include extra information about a transaction. Now that Splitwise supports comments as well, I think we may phase out the Notes field at some point.)
Comments: This allows anyone involved in an expense to add more information. An expense can have many comments.
Why not show the little person icon next to the friends name with a color? Red if you owe them, Green if they owe you? Sometimes you want so see who owe you money individually and I have to go through each contact to see if they owe me or not.1 vote
We actually tested this at one point and thought that it ended up looking too distracting, but it might be worth reconsidering. I’ll pass on a note about this. In the meantime, you can always get a list of everyone who you have a balance with from the Dashboard screen. Apologies for any inconvenience!
It would be nice to have the option to show the money owed in current day. As an example, I have a 1:1 group and there are some upcoming bills, and it only shows up the total owed money including those bills. I want to have the possibility to see how much do I owe (or get back) today, including only the bills already paid.1 vote
Interesting! I’ll pass on this suggestion and see what the team thinks – it could be useful, but we’d also want to make sure it doesn’t confuse people by accident.
currently the All expenses UI only shows the list of expenses but doesn't show to whom I borrowed/lent. To know this I need to open each expense.1 vote
Unfortunately, there’s not usually enough room on the screen to do a good job explaining who you borrowed/lent with in that list. When you’re in a group or friendship, we do break down your lending in that group/friend. I’m not sure how we would put this together in a clean way.
If you enter a % split, it's stored as $ values and throws an error when you subsequently reduce the total cost.
Steps to reproduce:
-add a bill of > $1
-set it to a percentage split
-confirm/accept the bill
-edit the bill and attempt to lower the price to $1
-observe that an error dialog appears complaining that the new price is less than your share of the bill0 votes
We are aware of this issue, and it is on our TODO list for the near future.
Give me a push notif if my friend is looking at the SW app so I can message them about any outstanding bills I need them to add to the ledger.0 votes
We will probably implement messaging in the future, which would solve this. Not sure whether we’ll ever give users notifs when their friends log in — seems a little invasive?
It would be good have the option of paying directly to PayPal Money Pool from Splitwise. This way when a Money Pool is created in PayPal and an invoice in Splitwise is created to contribute towards Money Pool, users will be able to settle it through Splitwise and it will be a smooth settlement.0 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! I’m not sure this is something we’re going to add but I’ll leave it open for further voting for now.
When you scan a receipt you may have gone to a store and bought multiple categories of things, like groceries and household goods. You should be able to indicate which items on a receipt are which category.0 votes
Interesting idea! I’ll leave this under review for now.
We are making big changes to our ‘reoccurring bill’ infrastructure / interface over the next year. This seems like something we could potentially include. Thanks!
For expenses0 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! We’ll definitely consider this the next time we update our list of categories.
Thanks for your suggestion! We’re always adding support for different languages and formats to make Splitwise more accessible to people across the globe. This sounds like something we might do in the future.
Allow me to set an 'email signature' (note that would get automatically appended to every expense I add)0 votes
Could you give us some more information about what exactly would you like to have in your signature?
Should only include expenses added after latest 0 point.0 votes
I can see how this would be helpful. However, I think we’d prefer to spend effort on making sure the in-app balance/expense display is perfect — it seems like you should never even need to download your CSV if you totally trust and can understand Splitwise. That said, we’ll keep this idea on our radar for next time we think about these advanced features.
