I suggest you ...

Search expenses!

You're building a great site, and you guys are quite responsive to feedback. Congratulations!

Is there a way to search the expense history by keyword? It's such a basic feature that I just assumed it exists somewhere, but after looking around for a while I think it's missing as of now. It would be great if I can search by keywords such as say "grocery", or sort by category, or sort by persons involved etc.

    Hi team can we utilize pro feature on test basis so that if we like it and would like to but it can do that as well

    It will be great if Splitwise can add a search option for transaction. I can see two levels of search can be implemented as below:

    1. Search in Global level
    2. Search in group level

    Along with this there can different filters you can provide like below :

    1. Search by people involved
    2. Search by description
    3. Search by amount
    4. Search by date/ date range

    You can contact me for information on number +91-8087678591. I would like to test the application as a beta tester.

    Would be great to have a feature to search transactions - keyword and/or amount based search.

    Benefit: to be able to quickly see if an item was entered especially for those who use splitwise a lot

    It’s better if you guys provide Search bar in the activity section, so that people can search specific things.

    Needs a sub-filter for search by keyword WITHIN a GROUP. some people have more than one group. Searching is a RESEARCH use case therefore the drill downs will always occur following the business object model (all accounts, one group, one category inside a group or across a group, etc etc). rather than view this suggest is ONE filter request, implement ALL FILTERS (look at other competitor accounting tools and see that the entire object model is available in the search ,vs releasing one search dimension at a time in the development cycle).

    Ability to filter the expenses on the basis of Group Individuals or Categories which will ease searching and identifying the expenses in large groups

    please try to include some filter like search by sorting the expenses, datewise and expense wise. it will be a very good feature if you include search any expense with some keyword.

    Definitely need a search function!!! Sometimes I can't remember if I recorded down an expense already and it's a nightmare to scroll through hundreds of logs to check
