enable mass editing of expenses
I have a bunch of expenses that I want to put in a group but I can't find a way to do it other than one at a time. There should be a way to edit several fields on multiple expenses at once. I see there's a suggestion called "Bulk Edit Expense" but it hasn't been commented on since 2012.
By the way, I just clicked to sign in with Google and got this security message from Chrome: You attempted to reach feedback.splitwise.com, but instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as *.uservoice.com. This may be caused by a misconfiguration on the server or by something more serious. An attacker on your network could be trying to get you to visit a fake (and potentially harmful) version of feedback.splitwise.com.
Updating this as it’s been a while. We’ve discussed this a few times and can see how it would be useful in a few cases (such as mass-moving expenses between groups – if you or anyone else needs help with that, feel free to send us a support email). We’ll keep it open for now for further voting and comments.
Five years later...I also support this function. Please, for the love of God, add it!
I think Splitwise is underestimating the use cases here. This would be a very handy feature.
+1 to a bulk editor, it would make it so much simpler to do lots of expenses all at once, in a spreadsheet like way.

I just entered 20 items directly with one person instead of a group. I now have to manually move each one to the correct group. It would be great to select more than one item by Shift + Click selecting them and then drag and drop them onto a group or another person, or click Move and choose where they all move to. This could also allow you to delete or do other actions on the selected group.

Please this is very important. You should do it

Hey, I love your app, but it would be wonderful if there were the possibility to check mark several objects at once, e.g. to move them into another group etc. Cheers!

I'd still be very interested in this feature.
I would like to be able to batch move transactions from one group to another, too

I have several recurring monthly expenses that vary from month to month, and it would greatly speed up the process if I could add several at once.
With bulk entry, I could quickly add expenses from a) the same provider over multiple months, b) multiple providers in the same month, or c) any combination of the two. I could then assign dates, groups, types, etc for each item before submitting the batch.
The UI might look like a Splitwise-ified mini spreadsheet where you can dynamically add and delete rows.
Still hasn't happened, eh? :(

I'd like to second this request. Bulk editing would be very useful - for example, it would help for splitting a category of expenses unevenly (i.e. some people in a shared house eat more groceries than others). Doing it one-by-one is extremely cumbersome and time consuming.
Bulk/batch editing shouldn't even require the same information; I want to be able to select an arbitrary group of entries and edit them all at once; change them all to a certain category for instance.
This is very good idea. I'd like to see possibility to add new people to share expenses afterwards. Useful shen a new person joins the group after some expenses are already recorded there.
+1 for bulk edit to move expenses to a group.
