  1. Edit friends name.

    I want to edit the name of my friend as I want it so that i can distinguish between them and find out who he is looking at his name as some of my friends have the same name it is really becoming tough for me.

      I can see how this would be a huge help for people who have many friends with the same name who refuse to add their last name to their accounts! This isn’t on our roadmap yet, but it’s something we’ll consider in the future.

    • Shared Fund for house

      Hey there

      As a house we use a single account which we all pay regularly and equally into. From here all bills and house payments are covered. Like a kitty of sorts, we can use it for everything, and there is an excess for emergencies.
      It would be great to create an entity, like a Friend, but it is an account that we can keep track of the amount in it, but it doesnt recalculate what people are owed back from it automatically. Currently, if everyone pays say, £100 per month, and a bill comes out of it, if i…

      • Advance payment between friends

        There are instances when there is an advance payment involved ( including yourself ) between friends and then expenses deduct the money.
        I am not able to add my own share ( advance payment ) in a group. Typically in this scenario its like X pays X ( which is not a valid scenario in other conditions )

          I can definitely see how this would be useful! Hopefully we can consider adding support for a “kitty fund” or the like sometime in the future.

          For now, I’ve seen a few people simulate this by adding an additional member to their group called “Kitty fund”, and using that extra member to keep track of shared funds. For example, if everyone pays $100 to the kitty fund at the beginning of the month, then you can choose the kitty fund as the payer for new expenses like groceries or rent. Splitwise should accurately update to show how much money the kitty fund has left (e.g. “The kitty fund owes $50” = the kitty fund has $50 left). It’s definitely a bit of a hack, but it might be worth trying if you and your friends always split bills this way.

        • Integrate Paytm with Splitwise

          You're building a great eco-system of applications and you guys are quite responsive to feedback. Congratulations for that !

          I was wondering if it was possible to integrate Paytm (https://paytm.com/) for payments with Splitwise. It will be a very convenient alternative for a lot of users.

            Thanks for the suggestion! I’d love to add this at some point. We know that Paytm would be a great addition for our Indian users, so it’s definitely on our list of possible improvements for the future :)

          • make an option allowing people to alternate paying for a recurring bill.

            My roommate and I alternate who sends the rent check every month; it would be great for us not to have to edit that recurring expense to switch who pays, since currently Splitwise assumes that the person who paid it last will pay it again. For more than 2 roommates, you could have the option to follow a set pattern of payment, or you could allow users to "plan ahead" who will pay each cycle of a recurring expense.

            • Managing recurring expenses

              Our monthly electricity bill went up by a couple of euros, so I needed to change the recurring expense that I had setup for this. Although this is possible the process is a bit confusing. I'd suggest providing an overview of scheduled recurring expenses, separate from the list of expenses that have already been created as a result from these schedules, which is what I was looking for because I didn't really want to touch any previous expenses.

                It’s definitely confusing – editing recurring bills is not our best work. The way it works is that editing the most recent copy will change ones that cloned after it and will not affect the past.

                We do hope to improve this at some point!

              • Automate currency based on location

                I travel a lot and have to remember to set my default currency at the beginning and end of every trip, or alternatively change currency with every expense added (yawn!). Would be great to have the OPTION of location awareness. If turned on it would choose the currency of whatever country I'm in and perhaps a simple override button to use my default currency.

                • Add location to expense

                  It would be better if we add location of where the expense is made and filter the expense then it would be more easier..

                    Hey Krishna – thanks for the suggestion! We’ve thought a bit about location data before, and it’s something that might show up in a future version of the app. Until then, apologies for any inconvenience!

                  • Make it possible to retire groups

                    This should remove the group from the list and hide it in a list of retired groups. No new bills can be added.

                    This could also be used to move any unsettled debt out of the group (where it might be settled).

                      We’d definitely like a better way to archive groups, beyond just deleting them entirely. It’s been on our to-do list for a while, so hopefully we’ll be able to add this later this year.

                    • Track Personal Expenses

                      Can we improve this so that we can use this to track our personal expenses instead? Just have another option for bill that we pay for ourselves and then this will double as a personal expense tracker easily! This made it easier so that I don't need another app for tracking expense, especially when another person made the payment on my behalf :P

                        We’d love to make Splitwise better for tracking personal expenses (though we’re mostly focused on splitting for the time being). For now, your best bet is probably to make a new group for personal expenses, with yourself as the only member.

                          Thanks for the suggestion – this definitely makes sense! Our recurring bill system is pretty basic right now, but hopefully we’ll have a chance to spruce it up in the future. It’d be great to support more flexible kinds of bills (every 3 weeks, the last Thursday of every month, things like that).

                            • Poor show up of "friend's page" to review expenses, for group expenses

                              When i am viewing all my dealings with my friend, the non-group expenses show up perfect. But the group expenses are not shown expense wise. They simply show up like "group_name : money_lent/borrowed".

                              Now when i click on that group I expect to see ONLY those expenses which are with that friend, but alas I am flooded with all group expenses!

                              Maybe the friend's page itself should break down group expenses.

                                Sorry for the trouble! We’d love to provide a more detailed breakdown of group debts in the future, though unfortunately it’s trickier than it may sound at first. (In particular, it’s hard to support this feature for groups with “simplify debts” enabled, where the amount you owe someone often can’t be explained as a list of specific items.)

                                      This is definitely something we’re considering, though there are some challenges (it’s unclear how we’d verify payments like we do with PayPal or Venmo). We have a few other things to take care of first, but we’d love to integrate at some point.

                                    • Display Running Balances

                                      It would be lovely to see the running balances with each transaction. Basically add a column at the right that says "Bob owes me" and the balance at that time, switch it over to "I owe Bob" if one of his transactions puts me in debt. The last transaction should align with the current balance displayed at the top.

                                      • Personal expenditure chart

                                        I love the monthly expenditure pie chart idea. But currently I can only see the break-up of my expenses when I click on a friend, and it only shows me the break up of the expenses I have in common with that particular friend. It would be useful if I could view the monthly break-up of my expenses independent of the friends (maybe a link through my dashboard). It would be even more awesome If I could sort the table below the chart by the amount, to better understand where I am spending more.

                                        • Integrate with Mint.com

                                          Is there anyway you can make Splitwise interface with mint.com? I understand this might be a weird idea because Splitwise is not a bank :) But mint is a great app to keep track of monthly expenses. It tracks the expenses from the bank account. I keep thinking how great it would be if somehow my Splitwise account could be registered in mint.com. That would make the data in mint so much more usable for me. All the proper transactions from Splitwise can be available there.

                                          I say this because mint fails now because of situations like when I pay…
