Sort by outstanding debt
We use the app for a coffee club...The person with the biggest outstanding debt pays for everyone's coffee (well, whoever wants coffee at the time). Currently we need to scan the entire list of balances to find out who is most in debt to the group. Having a sort by debt function would save it's valuable seconds!
Interesting – I’ll pass on the suggestion! Can I ask how many people are in your group? I want to make sure I understand your use case as well as possible…most groups on Splitwise involve 3-5 people, so I think we figured that you’d usually be able to see everyone’s balance at a glance even without sorting.
I use Splitwise with several groups of up to 15 people each, like friends from work I get lunch with, friends from college I get drinks with, family and closer circle when we get together for a barbecue or similar.
Being able to find members of a group with the biggest debt would be very helpful and would kind of create a "wall of shame" for those hesitant to settle up 🤭
When I open the app, I want to see the groups I use most often first on the list, so that I can quickly find them to add a new expense. Sorting groups by most recent activity instead of alphabetically would address that, making the application easier to use.
My group has around 20 people.
The guy with most outstanding debt will pay the next bill.
It will be very handy if we can sort group members by balance.
In the groups list (archived), it’s difficult to see which ones are the most relevant at a glance. I need to put a date in all my groups names to sort them, which is not convenient.
Please make sure the default group order is by last activity instead or alphabetical order. (Or by creation date if you prefer but it would be less relevant).
This is the expected behaviour we have in every apps (messenger, WhatsApp, etc...)
With my colleagues we use the app every day at lunch. The one with the higher debt has to pay. could you add the possibly to order asc/desc the group balances to speed up the identification?

I have a group of 10+ coworkers, we all get lunch, coffee, beers, etc together and use a splitwise group to keep track of who owes how much and see who should pay the bill each time.
Being able to immediately spot the one(s) with the highest debt by sorting them by debt would be tremendously helpful!! Please add this!! 🙏🏼

We have 30 people, usually 5-10 per transaction. Please add this.
We have a pretty big splitwise group with a lot of members. Most number of transactions are split between the same set of people, but still there are some which are shared with the others, hence the "one large group" for everyone.
I just want the ability to sort the way in which members of a group appear, while splitting the transaction. With this feature, I can put all the most used members at the top, and infrequent ones at the bottom, thus letting me select/deselect anyone quickly.
We have a Splitwise group with 15+ colleagues, and have lunch together everyday. The one with highest debt pays the bill. This feature is strongly needed.
Highly recommend to allow sorting group members by outstanding balance.
The use case is that, we (colleagues) take turn to pay lunch bill every day, so no cash has to be pay between colleagues. The guy with most negative balance is responsible to pay. Currently, it is so difficult to figure out the guy, as our group has around 20 people.
I believe that there are many different use cases that can benefit from this feature.
This feature is really useful! Let me elaborate why. I am in a student association where there are yearclubs, consisting of about 15 people. Here in the Netherlands, WiebetaalWat is your biggest competitor, merely because splitwise isn't that known. I am trying to get everyone to get Splitwise, but this thing is one of the main reasons that WiebetaaltWat is more succesful.
Reason for this is as follows. We have a culture of not so much settling debts, but instead having someone else buy the next time. So being able to see who is most in debts is a key feature for us.
Also, I don't think it is that difficult or time-consuming to add either. But in seizing the Dutch market this is definitely an important one, as well as showing bank accounts!.
Please feel free to reach out to me through email or by phone (which I will give through email) to explain it further, if needed.

I second this idea. We do the same thing with Friday lunches at work. The one with the highest debt, pays it off.
