Managing recurring expenses

Our monthly electricity bill went up by a couple of euros, so I needed to change the recurring expense that I had setup for this. Although this is possible the process is a bit confusing. I'd suggest providing an overview of scheduled recurring expenses, separate from the list of expenses that have already been created as a result from these schedules, which is what I was looking for because I didn't really want to touch any previous expenses.

We agree that managing recurring bills could be better. Currently, the way to edit recurring bills is to change the most recent copy and that will change ones that follow. It will not affect the past expenses.
We’re considering how to improve this, and will leave this under review for now.

    It seems ridiculous that you can't edit an upcoming transaction (from a repeating monthly bill, for example) until the date it is scheduled. We should be able to edit the date, amount and notes as we receive billing statements or information from utilities, etc.

    And what about fixed installment payments? I'd like to be able to set a bill to repeat only X number of times.

    We would like to have a placeholder. A place to add the amount for a bill where we can keep track of whether we charged for each month. Also the amount will change month to month. Our gas bill will go up some months and down others, but my roommates and I will split it nontheless.

    When deleting a recurring expense, ask if to delete "just this one" or all future expenses

    There should be an End Date for recurring payments or number of iterations since it's crucial for registering installments.

    When you edit a recurring Expense, the application or webpage must offer: change only that posting or change future postings for both values ​​and who has paid the expense.

    +1 on having an end date on recurring payments. Maybe in the US paying in installments are not that common but for other parts of the world this is a reality, so a recurring split payment with a end date could solve that problem.

    I agree with Mark van de Korput that this is currently very difficult to change since you have to go through the activities and find that recurring amount. For a power user, which has over 100 items a month, it's time consuming to find the recurring entry and update it.

    You need to create a Shortcut for Frequently recurring expenses so that with the tap of a button we can add the expense. This is better than a recurring bill because a recurring bill may not occur sometimes.

    You should provide better handling of repeating bill. There should place to see all repeating bill set up. And modify repeating bill for future.

    Hi Splitwise team and community members!

    I think it would be super helpful to have a reoccurring bills section. Right now there's no simple way to see which bills reoccur when, outside of going through previous charges individually. It would be awesome to have this so we can go over and edit our reoccurring bills in one place.

    Thank you!

    It would be nice to have an easy way to find all your recurring bill to have a good overview of what is going to happen.

    i.e. Like a recurring "group" that would Appear once you have recurring bill and that would list all your recurring bill.

    The "group" could be then subdivided bye frequency: weekly, monthly, yearly, one time...

    PS: thanks for the awesome apps
