support item in itemized bill 'consumed' by X, but paid for by person(s) Y, Z
Every friday, I organize a group dinner. Frequently, people attend who are in a relationship. Sometimes, even non-monogamous (poly) relationships.
It would be really awesome if I could enter an itemized bill in this way:
item, cost, participants
eggrolls, 8.00, Janet, Steve, Tim, April
pad thai, 10.00, Janet
basil chicken, 10.00, Steve
fried chicken over fried rice, 10.00, Tim
People pay for another:
Janet: paid for by Steve, Tim
and thus get this break down:
egg rolls: $3.00 for steve, $3.00 for tim, $2.00 for april
pad thai: $5.00 for steve, $5.00 for tim
and then the tax/tip/etc. is handled like it currently is.
Doing this when there's a shared item like the egg rolls such that april gets 1/4th and steve + tim get 3/8ths instead of everyone getting 1/3rd is .. rather annoying.
Thanks for the suggestion! I can see how this would be useful for group dinners and such. We haven’t worked on our itemized bill form for a while, as it’s a pretty infrequently used feature on Splitwise, but I’ll pass on your suggestion and add it to our list of possible improvements.
