Post a bill only once the posted date for the bill has arrived
When I enter a date for a bill, I want it such that the totals are updated only once the bill date has arrived. Like for example if my friend before posting the bill owed me $0. Now if I post a shared bill for say $50 and I have kept its date as 5 days in the future. I want the app to reflect that my friend owes me $25 5 days in the future, not immediately. Right now, the way the app works is that, it would have reflected that my friend owes me $ 25 right now.
Updating this because it’s been a while! We still haven’t added this to our roadmap.
As we mentioned we’ve found in testing that this behavior ends up confusing people, which is why we’ve chosen not to add it so far.
We’ll continue to leave this under review for further voting and comments.

I've only been using this for three days and this has already caused confusion. I added recurring rent bills (every two weeks, starting at a future date), and the first of the recurring bills was added and pushed to everyone immediately. Please add a "delay until date" tickbox and only show this bill to whoever entered it until the date

Perhaps it would be good to be able to have the payment appear a few days before it is due - so that if we pay rent on the 1st of the month, on the 28th of the previous month the actual debt appears to my housemates.
Prehaps when setting up the bill just add a not paid option?
I highly agree with this idea and would love to see it ASAP :)

Maybe it should show two balances: money owed today (paid bills), and total money owed (paid and future bills)
Perhaps instead a calendar feature that helps a home group keep track of who gets paid when, and when bills are due. To help figure out who will actually pay the bill, and then be owed by the rest of the group.
I disagree - There is a bunch of confusion in my group because I'm trying to post future bills of things I know we will have to pay and it automatically saves it as we've paid those bills and shows as such.
My bills are always on the first of month as well so that makes it even harder.
Please fix this!
