  1. Assign the correct person when I click to send a reminder

    There´s a link with people's name, then there's one button close to each name to "Send a reminder". As I clicked the button close to the person's name, I thought it was going to send to that person, but what happened is that I send the same reminder to the same person a few times, because I missed the dropdown to actually select the person. Makes sense?

    • Allow users to create payment containers to easily track who has paid what

      Housing costs aren't the only thing included in rent payment. T.V., Internet, Electricity, Water, Garbage, etc all make up rent.

      Please allow a designated person in an apartment to create smaller sub-payments and include them in a larger payment container (for example Electricity bill, Internet bill would go in the payment container 'Rent'), and then allow users to select/un-select what they are paying for when they pay 'Rent'.

      This would allow us to easily tell who has paid for what and who has debts currently outstanding and allow us to track that information.

        Hey Craig – thanks posting. I confess, I’m not sure I know exactly you mean, but does marking specific shares of an expense as paid by specific people cover what your asking? Right now, we treat everything as one big bucket, but many users would like us to allow expenses to be marked as individually paid and we are strongly considering supporting that.

        Thanks either way!

        • Display summary in multiple rows per currency type

          I would like to see the details like you owe, you are owed or total balance in multiple rows per currency type. So that bills added in USD or INR can be tracked or viewed on summary easily.

            Thanks for the feedback! I can see how that would be useful. I don’t think we will change the summary. But we might be able to come up with a better way show you a summary of your balances in all currencies.

          • I add 'electricity bill' as 'bijli bill', 'food bill' as 'khana bill'.Your AI wont add relevant icons for my usage. Removes the fun in usage

            Train the AI to recognize common utility bill words in French, Spanish, Hindi and other popular languages too so that the relevant icons for the bill will be added.

            So users that don't speak English will also get the full experience

            • add a way to add notes directly to the timeline

              For example, I would like record a rate increase on the date it happened. It would be best to keep it separate from a specific bill so that it is 1) more visible (ie not buried in a note) and 2) it could happen in the middle of a billing cycle.

              I have kludged it by recording a cash payment of 2 cents from myself to myself and then putting the note in the payment note, which shows directly in the timeline. But a more official way would be really nice.

                Great idea John – we are still developing the comments / notes system and we do want to develop into a full messaging feature. We’ve done some work on this recently, and some form is coming, but we’re still unsure if we want the messages to appear directly in the transaction timeline. We need to test it out before we’re confident what we think works best. Thanks for telling us about your kludge, that’s very helpful

                  Thanks for the feedback! I think we left this off intentionally to make the page a little simpler to use in the general case of just getting started, though I’ll see if we can think about adding a cancel button here.

                • make a chrome extension that adds a "splitwise" button to transactions on Mint

                  I don't always remember to split a transaction as soon as it happens, or the transaction is one that I'm not physically present for (like when the power company autobills). It would be cool if there was a chrome extension that scraped data from the Mint transactions page when I visit it so that when I review my transactions on Mint I can just click a button (inserted onto the page via extension) to auto-import that transaction into Splitwise

                    Thanks for the suggestion! We actually sort of love this idea (we’ve definitely thought about it before), though it hasn’t actually made it on to our roadmap yet, and I’m not sure if we’d do it by a Chrome extension or by some other means. In general, though, we think it would be super convenient to import expenses directly from your other accounts :) Hopefully in the future!

                    When I add the following smiley face symbol to a comment, the text following the '<' is not rendered, along with the '<' itself:

                    The '<' symbol and all text following are not rendered.

                    • Adjust wording for payment confirmation when using Venmo.

                      When paying expenses using Venmo, I'd like it if the wording of the confirmation screen was slightly different. The current wording of "from your Venmo Account" makes me think that the current payment is using my balance in Venmo, which is actually incorrect in that case (the money would be taken from my bank account linked to Venmo).

                      Could you consider changing the text to reflect that the payment is "via Venmo" and leave it at that? That would make me stop and consider exactly how that balance is being payed using Venmo, instead of making me jump to an…

                        Instead of automatically saying "nicole" paid....$
                        can we have an unpaid balance on both parties?
                        that way it reminds me to pay as well?

                        • Allow changing of subscription values

                          Hi guys,

                          I think it would be great if we can change the values of subscription. Currently, if I want to pay more or less for you guys, I have to cancel my subscription and start a new one.

                          It would be nice to avoid all these tasks to change the value.

                          • give a prompt to automatically add people to "all purchases" if they enter after payments are entered

                            So what happened is we started compiling receipts and splitting payments across this group, and a couple guys joined later - thus, they were not a part of splitting some of the earlier payments (reasonably so). it would make sense to add a prompt when those people join, if they want to be part of "all". Perhaps this can be done by creating a group identity "all" instead of listing all N people in the group when split with all.

                              I think this is a simple hack, Friends are shown according to amount what they owe or I owe. Due to which if someone owes nothing or comparably very less amount then you have to abbreviate the name and on hover only you can know the details about amount and friends name.

                              Instead of this the bar which represents amount owed can be a box with light grey color which fills up according to amount owed. thus Friend's name and amount can be overlay-ed in same manner and always be visible. This way existing UI would be intact yet more…

                                Previously it showed curved left to right arrow sign when I owe someone and right to left arrow sign when someone owes me while adding some bill. That was better.

                                  So sorry for the trouble! I’ll pass on your feedback to the team – I know we definitely plan to keep making tweaks and improvements to the add bill form, as well as the rest of the new app.

                                • Make the "Add a Bill" pop up div draggable

                                  When I click the orange "Add a Bill" button that brings up the pop-up div, many times I need to look at what's behind it as I type my new bill. Currently, I'll start typing, have to close the window, look at an old bill, and then open up the add a bill button again and start typing the bill all over again. If you could make the div draggable when the header is clicked and held, that would be awesome.

                                  *** Note to developers: It only takes one line of jquery code to do this (and it's cross-browser of…

                                    Thanks for the suggestion – this would definitely be nice!

                                    Unfortunately, I suspect it may be more than just one line of code, as there are places where we use custom positioning logic for our pop-ups (to handle sliding sub-menus and such). Still, I’ll add it to our list of possible improvements for the future :)

                                  • Allow user to cancel setting a passcode

                                    When user clicks on set passcode from settings page and changes his mind not to set passcode, he is not displayed with any cancel button. The only way to go out of the flow is to kill the app. It's hampers the user experience..so I suggest to have an cancel button on Set passcode page

                                      Thanks for the suggestion, I can see how that would help! I’ll pass this on. For now, you can either (a) kill the app, or (b) finish setting a passcode, then immediately disable the passcode by tapping the “Passcode” button again and choosing “Disable passcode”.

                                    • Overpay&Split

                                      Scenario:
                                      4 friends chipping in money to buy say beer. They don't know yet how much it will cost. A pays $40, B pays 10, C pays 20 and D pays nothing. B goes with 70 bucks and ends up buying a case of beer for 60 bucks. How can they split equally using the app?

                                      If you've had this scenario in the past, vote for this!

                                      • Toggle open and close Groups and Friendds

                                        Make the side bar max height for that of the viewport height. Make the Groups and Friends sections toggleable close / open and scroll bars within.

                                        Prioritize payments and do calculations based on them. Say an old payment exists in my dashboard and i don't wanna delete or settle it but just ignore about it when seeing my total.

                                        Make dashboard items selectable so that i can calculate or get a total based on the selection items from my dashboard.

                                        Same scenario mentioned above with selection of friends and groups from side bar or on a new page would be…

                                        • default with one

                                          I use splitwise with my boyfriend only. If there is only one active user, I want that person automatically selected all the time.

                                            Thanks for the suggestion – I’ll pass it on! I know we do something like this for people who only use one group, and I can definitely see how it’d be useful for accounts with only one other person.
