  1. Subgroups

    Can you implement something like subgroups? Suppose we have a flatmates group but want to maintain a history of what all was spent in a particular trip. That will be convenient in a bigger scenario where we have many office colleagues in a group but went on a trip with only few of them. If we want to add multiple bills, this will be convenient.

      Unfortunately, we think this would overcomplicate Splitwise, and we’re not likely to add it in the near future.

      For any specific applications such as trips, if you have a subset/different set of people from an existing group, our current recommendation is to create a separate group. Your total balances will each friend will reflect the combined totals from both groups.

    • allow receiver to confirm payment before it reflects in splitwise

      Today my friend updated that he maid a payment to me for the money he owed me. This got reflected on my dashboard, which now shows that he does not owe me any money. In this case, he transferred the money through internet banking. Before the changes get reflected on the dashboard, splitwise should ask me for confirmation whether I have received the payment. If I say yes (after checking my bank account) then only it should show on my dashboard that my friend does not owe me any money.

        Splitwise actually used to work this way, but we got rid of the confirmation step because people complained that it was too much of a hassle (and we agreed). We think that Splitwise becomes too difficult to use if you have to manually approve every change in your account.

        Our in-between solution was email notifications. By default, you should get an email any time someone says they have paid you, and then if you wish you can double-check that they have actually given you money. (And if they haven’t, then you can delete the payment from Splitwise!) You can also see a full record of changes in your account at any time by going to the “Recent activity” screen.

        Hope that makes sense! Let us know if you have questions or concerns.

          Sorry for the trouble! PayPal doesn’t currently allow us to make payments outside of the US, so I’m afraid we’re unable to offer this feature right now. We hope this will change in the future!

        • Better paypal support for android

          Overall your mobile app experience on android is pretty good but trying to pay via paypal is pretty horrible. Modal dialogue is so small that I have trouble navigating to enter login info. I eventually gave up and had to switch to Desktop version to finish paying. Would be great to improve this exp.

            Really sorry for the trouble! We’d love to improve this experience, but unfortunately we have almost zero control over it – it’s an official library from PayPal, and we don’t really have the power to customize its appearance. Hopefully PayPal will update their code at some point to better support a wide variety of screens, but until then, the desktop version might be your best bet :( Again, apologies for the inconvenience!

              We don’t plan to bring a more comprehensive CSV export for Splitwise. If you’re looking for a total backup of your account, Splitwise Pro (in your web account settings) has an option to download a complete copy of your data from Splitwise.

                Keeping groups in a stable position allows users to develop muscle memory. We think it would be confusing if users had to visually scan for the group they want each time they view the GROUPS tab. I hear your argument but it’s just a trade off we’ve made in the other direction. Sorry for any bother! Cheers.

              • Add a way to delete items / Delete history

                It would be better if you add the functionality to:

                1. Delete multiple items from the group
                2. Delete items on the monthly basis from the group
                3. Delete History (Clear history)

                  We’ve started adding functionality to the web that will hide expenses whenever a group or friendship hits an overall balance of $0. We’ll likely bring this to the iPhone and Android. We do not plan to add any mass-deletion functionality.

                    Building a Dropbox or Google Drive integration isn’t in our plans right now – we take care to backup our own servers, and we already allow you to download basic backups in .csv format from the website. We’d much rather focus on improving core features.

                    And don’t worry: if Splitwise ever shuts down, we’ll notify all our users and give ample time for you to export your information :)

                        Thanks for the suggestion – we’ve tried this approach in the past and found it didn’t work well. If you’d like to reject a payment by someone else, we’ve found it’s just as easy to delete it.

                      • Workaround for customised category limitation

                        Dear splitwise team,

                        I have read feedback of different people requiring customised category by app user, which is not possible at the moment. Although you are adding new categories at request of masses.

                        My suggestion is that, is it possible if you let us edit the name of already existing categories at least, as a workaround?

Unfortunately, this workaround still presents the same issues we have when considering whether or not to add custom categories. Please let us know if you have any categories you’d like us to add. Apologies for the inconvenience!

                            We’ve previously decided not to “lock” expenses because we think it makes it too difficult for friends to fix mistakes in data that has been entered on Splitwise. However, there is an option in your user settings to receive a notification any time an expense is updated or deleted.

                              Update: We’ve decided dealing with more than just money will add too much clutter and confusion to our app, so will probably not do this.

                              This is a really neat idea, though I’m not sure how one would be able to put an actual money amount on different chores globally. Chores have different values for people depending on how much they like/hate that task.

                              We’ve talked about this in the past, and it may be something we decide we’d like to peruse in the future.

                                Thanks for the suggestion! We don’t plan to make any changes to the “Simplify debts with” algorithm. We do offer simplify debts as an ongoing toggle in groups, which we think is usually a much better solution to the simplify debts problem, though we kept the more general one around for rare cases where it’s needed. You can always edit a specific Simplify debts entry and move it into a group if you want to.

                                • 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 :)

                                  • Private option for Venmo payments

                                    I always settle up through Venmo but prefer to keep my payments private. I'd really like to see an option through the Splitwise UI to do this. Not sure if this is on the radar for the dev team or not. Just wanted to throw some support towards it.

                                      Thanks for the suggestion! If you’ve changed your overall privacy settings on Venmo to make transactions private, the web flow will use those settings. It seems like this should work for you if you want to keep everything private.

                                    • Add an option to forgive all or a specific amount owed

                                      Would you consider adding an option to forgive under Settle Up > Choose Payment Method?

                                      After clicking "Forgive" a user could then choose an amount to forgive or to forgive the entire existing balance owed by the debtor in context.

                                      In my case, sometimes a bill doesn't divide evenly, other times people may repay me the amount owed but miss by one cent. in both cases I end up with stray balances of $0.01 (owed to me). It would be nice if I could simply forgive said balances instead of having to adjust the bill or the amount that was…

                                          Currently we have no plans to start tracking other than monetary expenses. We’re aware of other sites that have done this, but currently we don’t have this on our roadmap as future features.

                                        • Eliminate useless options in IOU and Record Payment options.

                                          When I change the person paying to one name, the other box must not contain the same name. Based on the situation it must change. Usually the best guess is to swap.
