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

        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.

      • Manan Singla commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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

        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

        Thanks You....:-)

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

      • Brijesh Patel commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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

      • CA N Venkata Sai Ch commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • jessicaxywu commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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!!

      • snehasys commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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
