Save unequal split settings

I always pay 2/3 and roommate pays 1/3 (i sublet one of the rooms, but think couples). % split is great but would be nice not to have to type 66.67 and 33.33 every time.

        This is exactly what I am looking for. I want to split the group expenses by share. Like my roommate pays 2 share and I pay 1 share. Can this setting be added for a group?

        It would be nice if we can save a standard % value for each member of a group. My husband and I are splitting our costs by % due to our income and so we wouldn't have to edit it for every single transaction. Thank you.

        Suppose I know that in a particular group..divisions would be like 1/10, 4/10, 2/10, 3/10...so option should be there to save it.

        After editing a bill that is split by percentage, it says balance not matched.

        e.g. A & B split a bill of 40$. Each share: 50% i.e. 20$. Then bill saved.
        Now, A decides to edit it and make the total of 50$. App should save each share as 25$.
        But it doesn't remember the percentage entered, and just keeps the computed value i.e. 20$.
        So, the total by share is 40$ and total bill is 50$. User has to manually enter the percentage again. Which frankly i believe is an headache.

        When splitting unequally by %, app should store percent values of individual share and not the computed values. So after every edit it'll compute again and user need not be displeased by entering the same details again!

        Each month my partner and I split bills differently, but each month for that entire month it's the same percentage split. It would be great if I could set a "default percentage". Like perhaps it's 60/40 until I go back in a change it back to 50/50 or whatever.

        Another sub-case of this is to set certain people inactive, i.e. 0% split, by default for new payments. For example if they go home half through holiday.

        To generalise, it would be nice to be able to have 'Saved splits' functionality, which would be a saved nameable split over any subset of the group (i.e. allow people to be removed or set to 0%). You often seen the same subsets of people on a large trip making payments together.

        Need this either for % split or by shares. Since i also have the same issue with my roommate. The split is uneven between 6 of us(percentage split). And doing the same thing again and again is a pain

        Using shares definitely works, but it'd be nice to have it as a default setting for the whole group/trip. On a long trip with many expenses it's a pain to set shares for each bill. And it's error prone too. Thanks!

        I am not able to open splitwise app in my iPhone 5s. I performed troubleshooting steps by removing and installing the splitwise app again . But still facing the same problem.

        Request team to help me getting this issue resolved .

        Josh, wouldn't the 'Split by shares' make it easy? I use this feature quite often as I too deal with similar situations from time to time.

      • RoxanneRoxanne commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It would be nice to say in a certain group, the default way to split bills is by a % (or any other way you allow the splitting). Then whenever you add a bill, it would automatically do that instead of having to type it in each time when it is not split equally. You could still go through the more steps if it should be equally this time instead of by a %

        It is a must feature... I got frustrated and deleted the app.
        Typical situation when, within a group of friends having dinner, one wants to treat another. You have to have a way to input the percentage of the bill each paying member has to pay.

      • SergeySergey commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Sometimes you need to add bill and allow others to set their shares themselves. Now it is impossible because the system converts everything to the exact amount instead of saving shares.
