Track Personal Expenses
Can we improve this so that we can use this to track our personal expenses instead? Just have another option for bill that we pay for ourselves and then this will double as a personal expense tracker easily! This made it easier so that I don't need another app for tracking expense, especially when another person made the payment on my behalf :P
We’d love to make Splitwise better for tracking personal expenses (though we’re mostly focused on splitting for the time being). For now, your best bet is probably to make a new group for personal expenses, with yourself as the only member.
I know I could add an expense as paid by me for me but I was thinking there could be a category outside the group for personal expenses and while adding a personal expense I could have the option to link it to a group. Only I should be able to see the linked expense and upon viewing group totals this expense should be added to my overall total so I can see how much exactly I spent on the whole trip. Because right now I only add the expenses where I pay for other people. I don't add the expenses I make for myself so it's hard to see my total expenditure on splitwise.
option to save for my daily expenses, so that i can get idea about my monthly expanses.

It would be good to see how much i am spending on myself every month.

no lent or owe..Just track monthly expense
Manan Singla commented
I should have the option to record expanses for my own records. It should also have the option to aplit those bills locally, without adding that person. Sometimes we juat need to keep them for own FYI

it would be better to see mothly spends dashboard in the same to monitor monthly expenses

if personal expenses and splitting expenses can go through an single platform then it would be great benefit to users
description of my personal ideas
1) if user can manage its own personal expenses by solo or with friends or in group it would be great
2)All the above financial data or transition should be uploaded ( as it is currently performing)
In short- Splitwise + Daily expenses 3
it would be great relief of managing funds

Currently there is no option to see individual contributions in a group. It is better if we have that option

It would be great if you add a feature by which anyone can see his/her expense throughout the month or year from sharing in combining all group or one group.So that he can calculate total expenditure in certain time of period.

Even with splitwise we feel that we should have a personal expense manager in which we can add our personal expenses.We don't want to download another app for this,you have provided a good service with splitting the bills already so if you add this feature of personal expense manager it will be great.

another group for me alone don't solve problem .,.b'coz it always shows settled up... personal expenses options which can't be seen by any other

include an option to choose the source of payment like cash or a bank account. and keeping track of expenses including personal expenses i.e., non shareable expenses with any other.

Just a small display feature on app transaction level. Currently if I pay for myself in a group, then the transaction is displayed like this: "you paid for yourself-no balance" that's all. It would be great to display it in synch with other ones like : "you paid 10 and you owe 0 or no balance"
The issue actually is I created a group with me and my wife where I always pay for myself. If I just want to check if I added one 9.25 bill or not, I need to click each row for current month and check :(
Can I share a screenshot here ? The idea page should have an option to add screenshot too :(

If user have functionality to add their own expenses in the same app under another tab, then it would be a great money management app. Users don't have to use multiple apps just to split and manage expenses.

Provide an option to maintain personal bills.
Yes yes this. I often add in my own personal spending in the group account and have it just me owe myself, but the UI isn't great food looking at what I spent. I mostly only use Splitwise for trips so this is super helpful for tracking my own trip expenses. Also would be great to sort by the type of icon... Hotels, transport etc. Also noticed you don't have Hostel show up as a hotel icon!!

If this app contains a graph for showing the categories on what we spent both in groups and personal that would be great...👍
In the friends tab, there should be a pinned thread, self, where I can log my personal expense at one go.
It shouldn’t affect the “who owes what” factor.
For people interested in tracking personal expenses, allow fast tracking of every expense and let them to be revised later to assign the proper group, splitting method etc.
Allow importing of bank account reports and categorize those items ass well
