I suggest you ...

View expenses by category


I would find it extremely useful in both the mobile and web apps if I were able to group a house's expenses by their Category (possibly putting payments in their own section of the summary). In the web app, I imagine the link for this next to 'view printable summary'.

Are you looking for an item-by-item list, or a summary by category? If you’re looking for the latter, there’s a category breakdown chart you can use on our website – click the “Trends” button at the top of the right-hand sidebar, then click “view full charts” at the bottom of the sidebar. I’ll pass on the suggestion for a way to break things down by category. Hopefully we can add these features to our mobile apps in future updates!

    Would be good to filter the view to just see "hotels" or "transportation" to determine how much was spent in that area

    we can get monthly organised category spent monitor for our expenses..it will be easy to make savings and expenses find out

    This is one of the best tracking apps out there. The category is available for tracking but it would be good if there is a page to quickly see the monthly or to-date total by category for all members or for individual. Thanks.

    Hi! I can't find the way to visualize total expenses by category. It could be useful make a comparison monthly

    Useful to see what our spending breakdown looks like within a group. My main need is for travel groups (how much are we spending for food vs transportation etc) but could be useful for other types of groups, such as housemates.

    First of all,I want to say that I'm loving the app! I recently switched from Abcba to Splitwise. This app has better layout, compatibility, features and webintegration. But I'm missing 1 feature: overview list by categorys in the app.
    So I would like to see an overview of total expenses for a categoey and when I tap on the category than I can see all the expenses within this category.
    This gives me a better overview of like: how much I spend on groceries, or how much I spent on car expenses or hobby's.

    In pie chart, we can see the expenses under broad categories(travel,general,....) but there should be an option to see expenses under general category to help the user to see where he is spending more...

    I'd find this very useful as well. It's really difficult to have an item by item review of the Fuel expenses for example.

    It would be really useful to view a summary of te total expenses in each category to get a sense of how much is spent on what every month.
