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.
I can definitely see how this would be useful for certain types of groups, especially travel. For now, you can always temporarily change your default currency from your account settings page (though I realize that’s not the best solution). Apologies for the trouble!
I definitely need the ability to set a default currency by group - for example, one group is on a trip and needs to be in EUR, but my daily home expenses still need to be in USD.

I was there 3000 years ago. This feature would make a nice add-on to my collection.

I don't think Splitwise is even looking at these threads. They want us to buy Pro subscription but won't care about user feedback

Yes this is exactly what I was looking for. I live in Europe now, so majorly handling all my currency in Euros. But I've some groups who owe me back in India in INR. If currency change is maintained group specific it would be of great help.

Please implement this. My G/F is in Mexico, so we have a group where all transactions are in Pesos.
I live in Canada, so I have a group with my roommate for household expenses in CAD.
My G/F and I recently went travelling to Honduras, so for that group all the transactions are in HNL. We've previously done trips to Japan (YEN), lived in China (RMB), and lived in Kazakhstan (KZT).
I know this is the extreme case when it comes to groups and currencies, but other people must experience it too when travelling. It is a complete PITA having to manually set the currency on each transaction.

If you’re using this app to track a trip, say to Europe, it’s inefficient and confusing to have to go into another app, translate between euros and USD, then go back into the app and submit everything under the $ sign. Users should be able to select the currency option themselves per each group.

Going further - currency per transaction would be awesome for multi country trips. You could allow the possibility to assign exchange rates manually.

I would even like to be able to determine currency per transaction. I travel with groups all the time and sometimes we need Armenian dram, us dollars, euros, and Georgian lari all on the same trip so just by group doesn't work.
This would be a great feature! currently I'm writing in the name of the group in which currency are the amounts but this is not ideal
This would be a great addition, we often travel between UK and Europe so having the option between different groups would be really useful
I have a similar problem. One group shared with co workers in the US, and another shared with housemates in Australia... It doesn't seem to be working out.

It'd be helpful if Groups could have a default currency different than the one configured for the account.
Example: When on a trip to a foreign country most bills will use the country's currency rather than whatever you have configured on your account.
The idea is that you can select the currency in the different groups that are created. In this way, in the total to be paid to a person, the amount would appear, according to the currencies that have been used.

Need option to set the default currency for each group
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!
