Pooling the money

Lets say an future event/trip is planned where by several group members pool in the money with only one or two of the group over a period of time. And at the event or trip these one or two people spend the money on behalf of others. So this would ideally be a transfer at the beggining and then the actual expense.

I’ll pass on the suggestion! For now, you might try creating a group with an extra member named “Pool” – you could have everyone pay that fake member some money to start, and then that fake member could pay for expenses that come out of the group pool. Hope that helps!

    Heard good things about the app. Plan to use on our lads ski trip of 12 people. We usually have a kitty but also some one put something on a card.
    Is there a feature on the app (can u add) that could have a kitty fund as well as the split fund / payment etc . As in say all (or most put in x to the kitty) still split any bills depends on person A pay for it or the kitty ...
    good luck !

    If people are attending a wedding event, and they are planning for gift, the coordinator may open this option so that people can contribute as per their wish and coordinator can easily keep track of the money

    sometimes a group has seed funding to start expenses from, not all groups start from 0 cash in the pot

    Would be great If we could create a budget and use it to pay the expenses. Would be easier to plan a trip and keep tracking of the expenses.

    Estaría bien crear un bote, del que ir descontando gastos de un viaje y si se acaba, ya ir calculando deudas

    When we go on a trip with friends we often pay certain amount to a "group account". When we go for grosseries we pay from this "group account". Is it possible to make something like that in the application?

    Integrate the "cash in hand" icon/tab/function so that the net balance of cash be calculated whenever the expenses/transactions are entered.
