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.
So sorry for the trouble! This is on our list of possible improvements for the future – I can’t say exactly when it’ll be added, but we know it’d be a useful improvement. In the meantime, our apologies for the inconvenience!

My housemates and I create a new group to split expenses each month. Sometimes we have a lot of shared expenses in one group and we want to do the same unequal split on all of them. This would come in handy!
Develop a feature allowing split percentage at group level. This will ease the process of not requiring us to split the bill every time I enter expense.
This will be particularly useful when we know a particular group expenses are always split in known manner (eg. Split 30%, 30% and 40% always when we enter expense in a group called 'grocery' between three people)
There can always be an over-ride function while entering expenses.
I think this feature is very useful. Please add this feature in your next update.

If a group of people want to share expenses of a mess.
Say a person 'A' eats 3 times for 30 days, person 'B' eats 2 times for 25 days and person 'C' eats sometimes 1 time and sometimes 2 times, for 15 days.
The total expense shall be split according to the share of each person for a month. ie person A has a total share of 30x3=90 for the whole month. Person B has 25x2=50 shares. But the case of person C need to be entered daily, which is currently not possible.
So I recommend a separate section called mess, as there is house, trip etc, which would enable to enter daily mess details without much confusion.

Are there any updates on this feature?
It would really help a lot!
My family (4 members) often travel with my brother's family (3 members). It would be great to split by default with shares at 4/3. Now I can do it manually for every expense. I love Splitwise but this is a blocking point, I would be open to pay for "Splitwise Pro" for this feature. If not I would need to move to another App which is able to set default shares for each group.

So it has been 3 1/2 years and every year they are postponing the feature. I think it is really useful for groups, please add this soon!

We are 3 flatmates. We have need to share grocery cost unequally.
My household utilities are divided by shares. My roommate pays 2 share and I pay 1 share. The current group setting by default divides expenses equally. I am wondering if there is any way I can make my default group setting to divide expenses by shares.
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.

Must have setting

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
