      Debt simplification can be disabled in groups on the group settings screen – just turn the “simplify debts?” switch to off under “Advanced settings”.

      We don’t currently have a setting to block yourself from debt simplifications among friends, but it’s something we may consider in the future. In the meantime, you can revert a debt simplification at any time by deleting any part of it, and the entire transaction will be undone.

    • Add an unpaid bill

      Why can't I add an unpaid bill. I don't care about integrating with my service because I doubt you'll be able to gather bills from the utility company in bfe with no web login. I should be able to add a bill that no one paid, or add a bill that I just recieved that no one has paid. then the first person to pay it can change that.

        We don’t have any plans to add the ability to add bills that have not yet been paid for, because we think it could cause confusion. I’m going to leave this under review for further voting and comments.

      • Allow manual archiving of group

        Manual archiving of group should be allowed. If the trip is over and everyone is settled, I'd want to get rid of the group still keeping the record in archives.

          I think this is a great idea! It’s not on the roadmap yet due to lots of other priorities voted higher, but one we’ve discussed and agreed totally makes sense. Thanks for submitting.

            • Ability to add more than one picture

              At the moment, it seems each expense can only handle a single picture. I suggest that ability to handle more than one picture should be supported. For example, I might want to add a copy of the receipt as well as a picture of the item.

                Makes sense! Ideally, I think we’d like to add the ability to include pictures in comments, which would let you add as many pictures as you want for an expense. This hasn’t made it on to our roadmap yet, but hopefully it’s something we can consider in the future.

                • provide option to disable venmo and/or paypal

                  I don't have venmo, and paypal repayments are a pain. If I could disable both so that my friends don't attempt to repay me with them, it would be very nice. Obviously this is an option that I set on my account that affects what other people see when they go to 'settle up'.

                    Hey there – very sorry for the trouble! We would love to add a “this is how I like to be repaid” feature that would let you specify your favorite payment services and the IDs you use on each platform. Can’t say exactly when this will get implemented (we’re a really tiny team) but it’s on the radar. Thanks for your patience.

                  • Let users indicate when they have entered all expenses for a group

                    The way that my friends and I have been using Splitwise for the past year and a half is, for any group trip we take, we create a separate Splitwise group for that trip. It's a great workflow and Splitwise has been invaluable to us, but one tweak would make it even better:

                    We use "simplify debts" to cut down on transactions, and to make that work best, it's best for everyone to wait for every expense from the trip to be added before settling up. The way we've been handling it has just been to have everyone add their…

                      Thanks for the suggestion! I totally understand this use case – “don’t settle up until I add everything” is something I’ve heard friends of mine say anecdotally. I’ll add this to our list of possible improvements for future versions :)

                    • View total individual expense in pdf summary

                      Splitwise has so much potential as a finance management tool rather than just expense tracking. But the format of the pdf summary generated kind of spoils the party.

                      One simple change that would help a lot is having the total expenses made by each person listed in the summary rather than just the amount owed. This would be extremely helpful.

                      It would also make more sense than the current format where the total cost for the group is reflected as-is for each individual members. Each individual is more interested in the total amount he/she has spent rather than the total…

                      • Shared Fund for house

                        Hey there

                        As a house we use a single account which we all pay regularly and equally into. From here all bills and house payments are covered. Like a kitty of sorts, we can use it for everything, and there is an excess for emergencies.
                        It would be great to create an entity, like a Friend, but it is an account that we can keep track of the amount in it, but it doesnt recalculate what people are owed back from it automatically. Currently, if everyone pays say, £100 per month, and a bill comes out of it, if i…

                          We’re not currently planning to build this, but as some users have mentioned in the comments, one workaround is to create a dummy member of your group using an @example email address to represent your ‘kitty’ or shared fund.

                          • Add Cringle as payment option

                            I'm not sure if this German based app, might be willing to cooperate with you, it's called Cringle.

                            It's an app created for small payments (max. 250€ a month) with friends and family. The app is quite simple to use and could enhance the Splitwise experience at least in Europe or perhaps only Germany...

                              It would be lovely to see the running balances with each transaction. Basically add a column at the right that says "Bob owes me" and the balance at that time, switch it over to "I owe Bob" if one of his transactions puts me in debt. The last transaction should align with the current balance displayed at the top.

                                • Auto-detect category by querying previous expenses

                                  For example, imagine I go to a restaurant called "Alice and Bob".
                                  1st time I add an expense, I type "Alice and Bob" in the Description and select "Dining out" as category.
                                  2nd time, I type "Alice and Bob" the app may select "Dining out" by itself.

                                  Splitwise is still awesome without this feature, but it would definitely be something nice to have!

                                    Thanks for the suggestion! Yep, this definitely makes sense – right now, we auto-detect certain words like “dinner”, but we don’t do any intelligent matching based on your past expenses. I’m not sure how technically involved this would be, but I’ll add it to our list of possible improvements for the future :)

                                      Our recurring bill feature is probably one of the oldest pieces of code in the Splitwise service at this point. We’ve been meaning to update it for a while, but we’re a pretty small company, so it’s rare we find to the time to work on something that mostly works right. This is one of the broken pieces of recurring bills we’d like to fix when we can find the resources.

                                      Hi folks,

                                      it would be great to have a widget for the Android app with the following functionality:
                                      - Display one Friend per line
                                      - Display the Avatar, the name, the total owed amount or the amount the friend owes me
                                      - Have a little icon to add a bill and to settle up

                                      If you have any questions please feel free to contact me :)

                                        An Android widget is a great idea :) We just started work on a pretty big Android update – for now, we’re mostly focused on improving the core app, but we’d love to include cool stuff like widgets in a future release.

                                      • Bimonthly expenses (i.e. "every other month")

                                        Allow users to post expenses that occur bimonthly (i.e. every other month).

                                        • Ability to select transactions from bank or card history

                                          Can ask users to link cards and bank accounts in order to show transactions in split wise so user can select transactions instead of having to do manual entry. Plaid makes a great API (demo.plaid.com) for this: harvey@plaid.com
