  1. Save $ value, bill name, etc. when adding more people to the bill

    Currently, the "Divide a bill" window is laid out with the amount and name of the bill at the top. One fills them in, then gets to the part where you can add people to the bill. If you do so, the amount and name are lost. Obviously, it should save those.

  2. Send email notifications only when I'm involved in them

    I've enabled the option to send emails when new bills are added, but now I get an email every time someone in the group adds a bill, even though Splitwise itself knows that I'm not involved in the bill. Please change this, or at least provide an option to avoid these mails.

  3. create an icon for gifts and an icon for laundry/dry cleaning (hanger)

    We love your site/app and these icons would make it even better!

  4. Trip Expenditure per person

    When I create a new trip, and add expenses.
    It will be good if I can get a report of how much it costed per person.
    For ex, total trip expenditure was about $500, and 4 people, assuming, we all shared money equally, the cost-per-person listing will help track travel expenditure.

    We don’t have a “post trip report” yet, but we do have monthly spending charts in the web interface fro groups (under the trends icon in the far right) and you can click on view full charts to get detailed spending summaries.

  5. Simplify debts for people not in groups

    we love this site and the relates applications both in iOS and android. But what i feel missing is a simpler way shuffle debts between friends that are not in a single group. The simplify debts feature between a group s good and understandable that people know each other, but for expenses that were not added to a group can not be shuffled. Please add a feature where you can shuffle amounts between a group of people.

    We actually have a “simplify debts” feature that lets you do a one-time shuffle with friends – it’s on the user settings page under “Advanced features”. We consider it a power-user feature (since it changes people’s balances in a way that can be more difficult to understand than within-group debt simplification), so we don’t encourage most people to use it, but it’s available if you want it!

    Update: this is now available on iOS!

    Thanks for the suggestion – I can definitely see how this would be useful! I’ll add this to our list of possible improvements on iOS.

  8. calculate individual's monthly(user defined) expense.

    The current application shows only how much a person owes/owed. It would be better if one can tract his complete monthly expense. If you need extra help, you can contact me. I am a software engineer and I would be glad to help you.

  9. Split bills by percentage

    Users should be able to enter percentages for expenses (i.e. Alice owes 40%, Bob owes 60%) rather than exact amounts.

    We’ve added better support for splitting bills by percentage in the redesigned web interface – just add a bill and choose “Split the cost unequally”. We hope to bring this feature to our mobile apps soon.

  10. Limit or track past edits

    One thing that I have been meaning to suggest is to track latest edits somewhere. Currently, anybody in a group is able to go back to several months before and add expenses. It can be difficult to find where the change was made, and if a person is dishonest about it, it can be very difficult to pinpoint exactly where things went wrong. We discovered this problem in our apartment quite early on, and made rules about it, and thankfully none of us are dishonest :)
    But I was thinking that it might be beneficial/helpful to either limit how far…

    There is now a recent activity feed and more notifications you can get that will show you changes in your accounts. Expenses also get detailed notes on changes when they are updated so you can be sure you know what’s different.

  11. Settling up in multiple currencies

    If you have debts in multiple currencies you can't see how much you owe if the debt go beyond two lines. You also cannot chose what order you want to settle up currencies. This is inconvenient.

    Both mobile platforms should now display balances in multiple currencies more completely and should show more options when settling up to handle these cases.

  12. Adding Pictures for "payments"

    when we make a payment, it would great to add pictures. right now, for a payment, theres only the one your website has. I would like to add a picture of a bill, bank confirmation, etc. Please allow us to add pictures for payments as well.

  13. Recurring expense

    Every moth there will be some common recurring expenses, I wish you can allow us to duplicate/ copy an existing expense so we can update and save as new. For example I have mobile expense split between 4 people in different way (not equally), every month it's same, so it's a pain to enter everything again and again. If I can just copy and recreate, then entering finite details like service name/ or splitting details/ etc will be eliminated.

    We actually have a feature for recurring bills already, if that’s what you’re looking for! Just tap on the date when adding a bill, and you can set it to recur as often as you’d like – new copies of the bill will automatically be generated each week/month/etc.

    If I’ve misunderstood what you’re asking for, just leave a comment and let me know what you mean, and I’d be happy to pass on the feedback :)

  14. Add an option to filter out expenses/payments by user

    It would be a nice feature to allow viewing only expenses and payments related to any particular user if required

    We’ve added this feature in the web redesign! Click “other actions”, then “hide items not involving me” to see only the transactions that involve you.

    (We haven’t decided yet whether to allow you to see only the expenses that involve some /other/ user besides yourself. If that’s a feature you’d like to see, let us know!)

  15. Print Expense Statements/Reports

    I think a really great feature would be the ability to print statements or reports. For example in my case I manage expenses for our whole house. A couple of people in my house are not necessarily tech savvy and some of them just are too lazy to log on to splitwise. If I could print out a report for the week, month, or year, kind of like an invoice sort of thing and just stick it on their door it would be really helpful. I also think this would be great for backing up information because lets face it.…

    Printable statements should be available on the right side of the month header in a group or friendship. Please let us know if you have any trouble with them.

  17. Specify items on expenses

    Hello, I have been using this amazing tool for almost a year, and I've got some suggestions that might be useful:

    1 - Be able to specify which items where in the expense for more clarity, and also optionally the expense group for the items, for expenses with items that belongs to different groups.

    2 - The user should be able to create customized expense groups.

    3 - I use SW with a friend, but not every expense is shared, so we give eachother the receipts so we can remove what we don't want to go to the site as…

    I’m not sure we did these all in the way you requests, but we do have features that solve this in the app.

    1. You can add itemized expenses, though only from the web (we are unlikely to bring this to mobile)

    2. You can create groups, though I’m not sure this solves things that way that you want.

    3. You can now comment on expenses, so disputes can be resolved in the expense itself.

  18. history - logs

    There is no way to see all the history (what if someone edited the amount later on?)

    1) I should be able to see all modification done to a transaction
    2) I should be able to see the entire logs of the group (what if a transaction is deleted)
    3) I should be able set a settlement or freeze account thing, so that any new addition are a fresh start and modification to historic data would not influence current settlement , something like starting on fresh excel sheet.

    There is now a recent activity tab which will show you any changes since the last time you looked. There are also detailed comments that get added to expenses when they get changed so you can see what is different.

  19. Summary on Group Page.

    1) What I had missing on the Group page is that, it doesn't have a summary of who owe who and what amount. You mention a total amount owed by a person in the group but to whom. ANd if one wants to see to whom he owes, he need to calculate the total amount from different bills paid by one person.
    I would prefer to have a kind of summary that lets say:
    you owe X€ to John.
    you owe Y€ to Michelle.

    2) On the dashboard, the bill are not well shuffled with each one after some items…

  20. Maintain currencies between webapp and mobile app

    whatever the default currency chosen in the webapp, needs to be maintained in the mobile app. Alternatively, you need to include the default currency option in the mobile app.
