Set default currency for groups instead of profile

At the moment the default currency option is tied with your profile. It would be better if it used a default currency for a certain group, and then let the user change it if they wish.

I.E. I live in Australia so normally it would be best if I was paid in AUD, but since I am now staying long term in the US, I would rather be paid back in USD instead.

There is also no option to change the currency of a bill or payment.

        Sometimes we input a bill in another currency. It would be nice if we could set a default currency of the group and when you have a bill in another currency you could be able to inform the exchange value paid for this. At this way, the final calculation would be done with this quotation in the default currency.

        I'm using your application with 2 currencies. When I travel to Europe with a friend, I use EUR but in homeland I use TRY. So I only need two currencies. Other currencies is not in my focus. So I would like to hide them. Or you can make a default currency for groups.

        Adding a group setting for default currency of the group would allow people to track trip expenses easily in the local currency instead of constantly switching from their personal default. Also it could be useful to have useful to be able to set separate currencies in different groups.

        Would be nice if one could select a set of currency in a group's settings. Like this only the selected will be shown if you create a new expense - and no scrolling through 10000 currencies is necessary.
        If I travel to the US I would need a list with EUR and USD (some expenses - e.g., from credit cards are in EUR; some in USD -- setting a default currency is therefore not "enough" for convenience)
        Besides that - awesome tool!! Love it!

        I can't understand why splitise is still missing this - one of the most important option for travellers.

      • Navneet Verma commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        You provide an option to change the currency after the group has been made. that will give a better user experience for the first time users and also the other users

        I would like my default currency to be USD, but i am currently in Australia on vacation and would like to split within just one group in AUD, but keep my default currency to USD.

        Hi, Can you support default currency per group. I've couple of groups some of them with my indian friends and some of them with Australian friends. I prefer to have AUD for Australian group and INR for indian group.

        Please add Default currency for groups, so it's easy to manage while traveling else need to select from picker every time for new currency

      • Catherine Cook commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes I would like that. I had vacation with my international family : English pounds, french euros and American dollars !

        And another request in that regard, show the value in your own currency :)

      • Rick commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Indeed, it would be a great feature. I love to use Splitwise when I'm on holiday and in that case I want to use the local currency.

        Just create a group with the name of the place + date and setting the currency would be fantastic. Bonus points for defaulting to the currency of your current location ;)

        I had the same suggestion!

        One little thing that could be done also is to show the currency symbol even if it's not the default one. (as of now, only the default currency is represented by its symbol)

        I.E I have USD ($) set as default and , for instance, when I have an expense of XXXX in EUR (€), EURXXXX is showed instead of €XXXX.

        Lees verbose, much more pretty ;)
